Has anyone else had a problem with this card for HDMI audio while using ATI video cards? I'm using XP, SP3.
When I first installed it, I didn't get any sound through HDMI. I contacted support and was told I needed an older ATI HDMI audio driver. I didn't even have the HDMI audio driver installed, so I went ahead and installed it and finally got the sound through HDMI. It worked fine for a while and all of a sudden the sound disappeared again. Reinstalling the ATI driver and the Avermedia drivers and software didn't fix the problem. Avermedia support keeps using the same tired excuse that you need an older ATI driver, even after I explain that it was working fine with the driver I had (which was older to begin with, like 8.3 off the install disk for a 2yr old 3870) and stopped for no apparent reason - no change in and audio drivers no new a/v software.
After the first incident, I reinstalled the system (with an image backup done before Avermedia was installed) and it worked fine again for about 2 days, then no sound. Again, there support was useless. They know there is a problem yet haven't issued new drivers. I've used 3 different older drivers and each one worked and then quit, so there's something else causing the problem and I have no idea what it could be.
I'm going to try and old nVidia 8600GT and see if that solves the problem although that's not the solution I want. Like to hear from anyone else that may have had or is having same problem.
