I know this question has been tossed around before.. but i'm going to rephrase it.. change it up a little..
I will/have a receiver which can do the decoding of TrueHD on the unit itself..
I have my office setup with the PC, and an HDMI port going to the other room where i will want to watch the video (via bluetooth mouse and IR setup)..
Right now.. i feed the other room the coax audio cable for the audio portion, which gives me dolby digital for DVDs..
But i will want to play back Bluray content via PowerDVD very soon..
Right now i have dual video cards on an asus p5n32-sli motherboard.. (independent).. i send one port to the other room for viewing via hdmi .. and use the onboard coax audio for sound..
What are the current options for getting dolby trueHD with a setup like mine (IE: coax in wall ability and hdmi) ?
I've noticed the motherboard P5E-VM has HDMI and may support sending trueHD through the same video port, assuming i can still use onboard video AND use my geforce 8600 card in the office..
I'm looking at getting a new motherboard, as mine died.. not sure whether to go the onboard route (prefer not to, if there will be a seperate card with audio and video out there real soon).. seems to me this is the only choice? Or is there a sound card that could do it.. via coax (i dont want to send 8 more wires through the wall if i can avoid it
Thanks in advance
