OK...I'm confused on how the connection/interface would lay out.
The card is primarily used for the Audio decoding (TrueHD/DTS-Master) via HDMI. So for the audio portion, I would have Xonar(HDMI)-->Pre/Pro/Recv(HDMI) that is capable of decoding the audio codec.
Then there's the video which is output by another video card via DVI->HDMI to TV.
1. So does this mean you need 2 HDMI interface now from the HTPC? So much for having one single cable to handle both audio and video.
2. Or does it mean that the Xona is cable of doing all the video processing and ouput 1080p(on a 1x PCIe?), so the video card is no longer required?
3. Or ???
