9800 gx2 hdmi audio Cannot get audio to work
I am trying to use my 9800 gx2 just to provide the video, and use a sound card(xonar dx) for the audio.

However, when I try to plug in the hdmi cable, it disabled the sound. I think that this is because it thinks its using hdmi audio.

Im using a 3.5mm to rca for my TV. It works with my brothers video card(8800 GT), but doesnt work with the 9800 gx2.

I am hoping to use the same method.

Any help?

I dont want to use S-PDIF unless I have to.

Do you have the cable plugged in from your sound card into the video card?

The included small SPDIF cable (from the mobo package) is to carry the on-board audio or soundcard audio over onto the graphics card, so when you use an HDMI cable, it will carry the video and audio signal to your HDTV. Most people who only get video from the HDMI cable is probably because they haven't used this S/PDIF cable at all.

The white connector will go into the graphics card (see below) and the other 2 longer connectors will go into the SPDIF pins on your motherboard or soundcard.

I'm not sure if that card has the SPDIF pins on the sound card itself for the black connector to actually plug into.

If it doesn't have the pins (look in the manual or look for "SPDIF" labelled somewhere on the card), you'll have to use the mobo SPDIF instead of the sound card.

From other forums, it seems you don't get any better display whether it's from using DVI or HDMI. The only reason to use HDMI would be if you only had a HDMI display, otherwise stick to a monitor (decent) and speakers.
