I am not sure your premise (that it cannot handle sound) is correct.

that sound input is for using DVI on that port...because DVI doesnt carry sound. if you have and nvidia card, make sure that the output in the control panel is hdmi-audio and not hdmi-no audio

Did you try a different input setting on that hdmi?
I forgot what the options were, but remember I had to change mine to connect the htpc.

Not sure what exact Samsung TV you have, but you may have to rename the input to just "PC". On my PN50B650, naming it "PC" is required to have input from the HTPC work correctly. Never tried "HDMI/DVI" so I can't comment on whether that kills the sound. But I did try "STB" for the name once, and found I was getting black crush (figure only with "PC" input will it handle the reference levels correctly).

yes, that was it, "PC" rather than "STB" (on a PN50c490).
