Can anyone tell me first if Audio goes through the display port? Then if it does can the HDMI and Display port be used to go to different diplays?

I want to send the HDMI to my reciever and the Display Port to my TV, I believe you can get a display port to HDMI adapter.

Mother Board is GA-H57M-USB3

I recall Display Port supports audio.  I would bet you can't get audio on both simultaneously, though.  WHY do you want the TV connected directly to the PC and not the receiver anyway?

The TV is actually in a different room and the reciever goes to the projector. Actlually the computer will be hooked to 3 displays. Right now it runs to the receiver to the projector plus I use the sub out on the reciever to go to yet another display. I have a HDMI splitter in the way that I am going to try first. Just had the thought that maybe I could use the display port, but the splitter is probably easier if it works.

should just build another HTPC I guess biggrin.gif

DisplayPort with a passive DP-HDMI adapter like this (so actually HDMI signals will be transmitted over DP) should support HD audio bitstreaming. But this depends on each mb...

Clarkdale (and later) supports dual audio stream (over HDMI+HDMI and HDMI+DP).

I'm actually curious about this as well. Can you use a displayport to go out to TV (for 3D) and use the HDMI output to go to your receiver for HD-audio (receiver that does not support 3D, HDMI 1.4a, etc).
