Hello all;

I have a bit of a "noob" question. The PC (specs below) I want to hook to my TV (Samsung LNT 4665F) does not seem to support HDMI audio. Again, be kind - I am new to all of this, but what I want is for my PC to send the audio to the TV without having to hook up external speakers (too many wires).

Basically, I just want to hook the HDMI up directly and not have to hook up additional cables...Like my PS3.

So the question is: do I need a new graphics card? Or, did I miss some set up function either on the PC or my TV?

Listen, I really appreciate any and all help you can provide.

Might be a dumb question but did you mess with the control panel? Sound settings or just plug it in?

Forgive me if you have.

On mine I right click the speaker icon in the system tray, select playback devices, select hdmi output and set it as default.

Yours doesnt have a native hdmi out so this might not be there at all.

If your mb has an internal or external coaxial S/PDIF connector and your GeForce 9800GT has an internal S/PDIF connector, then connect them and you will get HDMI audio (stereo LPCM, DD, DTS).

Or use a Radeon HD 4xxx card that has a HD audio controller of its own.
