HDMI and DVI are both digital signals, therefore if you used DVI - DVI it would be the same as HDMI - HDMI.
If you really want to use HDMI - HDMI you could purchase a DVI - HDMI adaptor for your graphics card. Contact your favorite computer store.
You are using different type of HDMI cables
you should use different type of HDMI cables ,depending on the products you want to connect. There are 5 different types.
Maybe this link can help in defining which cable type you need exactly. http://www.hdmi.org/consumer/how_to_connect.aspx
Basically what you need is to connect the S/PDIF out from the soundcard\motherboard I/O ports to the 8500 graphics card S/PDIF in and HDMI should now carry both video and audio.
So you have to check the video card. On the top part you'll see a white plastic with 2 pins inside of it. This is the connector SPDIF input from the video card. So what you have to do is look up in your motherboard for a connector with 3 pins that says SPDIF OUT. Even though it looks with 3 pins ONLY 2 of them are needed. You will basically need ONLY a cable like this:
You can get it at a local pc technician shop for 2 bucks only.
Anyway what you do is connect one end of the cable to the two pins from the white connector from the video card and the other end of the cable to your motherboard on the first 2 pins of the SPIDF OUT connector. Now the way to know which ones are the first two, do it this way: The first two considering reading SPIDF OUT meaning that the first one is the one closest to the "S" letter of SPDIF OUT.
If it does not work trying connecting the cable differentely as you might be connecting in a reverse order (positive-negative). Don't worry about burning anything as it's only a sound cable, and it does not carry any power.
Once you do it, go to windows control panel and select SPDIF as your default sound playback.
And you're ready to enjoy sound and video thru HDMI now!
This happens because the video card has hdmi output. Since hdmi output can carry audio signals also, the audio driver gets disabled. Uninstall audio driver and video driver both, install the video driver, and then install audio driver. after installing the audio driver, in playback and recording devices choose choose the audio output device you purchased along with the computer. This should fix the issue.
u need a 2or 3 pin spdif cable from the spdif on ur gpu to the spdif on ur mobo/soundcard. check manuals of ur gpu and mobo/soundcard for correct pin diagrams. dvi wont carry audio even if using HDMI adaptor, u need to ling the gpu to soundcard/mobo depending on what u use for sound.good luck google "nvidia spdif to soundcard cables"
