How do I calibrate the soundcard if I have an ATI card and am getting the sound through HDMI ? I can't loop the sound like it says in the instructions or the YouTube video.

You'll want to use your sound card, not your video card.

I'm actually doing the same thing, using a USB sound card for input and HDMI out for output. I asked the same question of John (REW author), how do you do a loopback calibration in this case, here was the exchange:

Does loopback even apply in this case, if so how would I go about it? The only way I can think of would be to calibrate the sound card itself - then take a measurement using the sound card, another measurement with the sound card in / HDMI out, and then manually subtract deltas and apply to the calibration file.

Appreciate any advice.

For now, I'm just doing without the sound card calibration, and accepting that I could be off a little.

I did that but the curve i got just seemed way off. I had a dip around 25hz, 30hz, huge spike around 18hz, etc. It was just way different then when I did measurements with a cd.
