  1. Look for cards that have an S/PDIF input. These cards will come with the loop cable that is necessary. Also, your motherboard has to have an S/PDIF connector also.
  2. Some Nv cards do have video and audio over HDMI.
  3. o.O thought I was in the nvid forums.
  4. NVIDIA: You have to connect the card to an audio source (sound card/motherboard) using a 2-pin SPDIF header. You get all sound formats the SPDIF can carry (2.0 PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS)

    ATI: A sound chip is installed on the card. You get all uncompressed sound formats (2.0, 5.1, and 7.1 PCM)
