    Using a Onkyo TX-SR606 AV receiver which I have set up for HDMI audio and video from that input. All other HDMI inputs on receiver are hooked up the same way and working. Have been to ASUS site and have downloaded numerous items. Can you be more specific on the standards you know of? Thanx!

    It shows up in control panel under sounds as HDMI audio. Even shows it moving up and down on the sound meter.

    Is it an ECS or an ASUS. In the title you have Elite group, which is the company that makes ECS boards.

OK, ASUS is the video card, and the MOBO is from ECS...Which makes great boards BTW, I've had one for about 4 years now, put it through hell, and it won't quit. Anyway. If you're trying to get sound from the may want to make sure your HDMI standards are compatible on both ends.There are at least 3 standards thatI know of, and the drivers may not support one or the other properly. Also, the asus website offers certain utilities for downloading.

    I know this isn't much help, but maybe something will click when you check this out. I've read some reviews on newegg, and you aren't the only one with this problem, which is usually indicative of a general compatibility issue the manufacturer overlooked, or forgot to address in the setup instructions.

    you may also want to double check your cards setting, just to be sure that something wasn't overlooked in haste.

    Go to your audio panel(the place where you usually mute sound from the PC) It's usually a little speaker by your clock, and double-click it. Go into the options and make sure everything is displayed, there may be many, then make sure everything is off of mute. I just read the part about Realtek audio I hadn't seen that before for what ever reason. You might want to temporarily disable the onboard sound in your bios. Realtek doesn't always play nice with other sound devices. I have a creative audigy in mine, and I always have to go into the windows settings and uncheck it when I'm having very specific sound problems with my recording applications. After a while I just disabled it in the bios, and I had no more problems. I'm in Jersey, and going to sleep. I'll check to see how you did in the morning. I hope I helped.

Sound output through hdmi

DVI is "Digital Video Interface". No Audio is transferred through this type of connection - even if one end of the cable is HDMI.

BEST solution would be to purchase a video card with HDMI output.

Alternate solution would be to run audio from rear audio jack to TV (assuming you have an input on the TV that will accept it)

What's your problem?I just purchased a I just purchased a Sharp LC32SV40U. I'm trying to hook it up with my Shaw Direct DSR 505 receiver (DVI to HDMI. I cannot find how to get sound using this

When using this type of adapter you only feed video into the TV/monitor
you have to use a separate set of RCA audio wires to feed the audio into your tv.

Hello there,

Here is the link to the full manual:

Before connecting your devices...
The signals that enter the TV and connected devices will need to be output in the correct format using the suitable connections. Below are the different types of video connectors. When connecting the TV, use the inputs that are available on your devices that provide the best video performance.
Video performance level Name Aspect Signal transmitted Separate audio connection required arrw.jpg HDMI cnn_hdmi.jpg Picture + Sound No DVI*1 cnn_dvi.jpg Picture Yes
l.jpg r.jpg
L-AUDIO-R Component video cnn_component.jpg Picture S-Video cnn_s_video.jpg Picture Composite video cnn_composite.jpg Picture RF/Coaxial cnn_coaxial.jpg Picture + Sound No
*1 If the equipment has a DVI jack and not an HDMI jack, connect the DVI jack to the HDMI IN (with HDMI-to-DVI cable and/or adapter jack), and connect the audio jack to the AUDIO IN (L/R) jacks of HDMI IN. (The DVI connector is for video signals only) To enjoy the best visual experience with your system, it is preferable to connect your best devices with the highest quality connections available. For example: your Blu-Ray Disc player or HD Set Top Box with HDMI, followed by your DVD player with Component, then your Video Cassette Recorder with S-video etc.Note: The quality of the picture also strongly depends on the quality of the cable used.
HDMI The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an all-digital audio/video interface capable of transmitting high definition video and audio signals. HDMI provides an interface between any compatible digital audio/video source, such as a set-top box, a DVD player, a PC, a video game system, or an AV receiver and a compatible digital audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV). DVI The Digital Visual Interface is capable of transmitting high definition video, but does not transmit sound. You will need to use the audio connectors of your device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or RCA). It is possible to connect an HDMI device to a DVI device using a HDMI to DVI adapter. Component video Component video is an analogue connection. It is capable of transmitting high definition signals. Component does not transmit sound. You will need to use the audio connectors of your device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or RCA) S-Video Separate video, abbreviated S-Video and also known as Y/C is an analogue video signal that carries the video data as two separate signals (brightness and colour), unlike composite video which carries the entire set of signals in one signal line. S-Video, as most commonly implemented, carries standard definition video. It does not carry audio on the same cable. Composite video Composite video is an analogue video (no sound) format. This is the connector you should use if you do not have any other connector available, in terms of quality. RF/Coaxial RF Coaxial Cable connection is used for transferring television signals (audio and video) originating from an antenna or cable box to a Television.

Hope this was helpful to you.

I just purchased an ACER P236H-BD monitor described as full HD 1080 but does not have an HDMI input. Does a DVI input give full HD 1080?

Yes dvi can output 1080p video. There is no signal conversation when using hdmi and dvi. Vga however has lower picture quality because signal conversation do exist.

How do i active hdmi on eah3450, i cant get picture

This card only has a VGA, S-Video, and DVI output. There is no HDMI output. It is made by ATI, and only compatible with motherboards that have an Intel CPU. If your Processor is an AMD, this graphics card won't work with your computer.

Cpu chip fan

This sounds as if the motherboard arrived with some form of issue. It has been happening quite frequently with ASUS boards recently. The retention bracket which connects the heatsink/fan to the CPU? If so, yes, it should be connected to ensure the processor remains cool. You are correct, you will need a DVI-HDMI cable. Not to worry, though. They have become quite popular recently.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Dell w3000 & PS3

This may not be DVI issue.
I connected DVD player HDMI ----> DVI ( Dell W3000) LCD TV.
Later I found that Dell TV version of DVI does not support HDCP protocol ( High Definition Content Protection protocol). So I could not play HDMI to DVI movies from my DVD player instead I use Y Pb Pr -- this works ok.

Hope this helps... I am not use PS3 enforces HDCP - I assume Sony linked with Sony Pictures would enforce HDCP on HDMI cable.
