Please explain why you used a converter, and what it converts to.
Assuming you used the HDMI port on your PC, does your video driver support HDMI sound?
I used a converter because my pc doesn't have the ability to from the pc to the hdtv. It is vga analog so I converted the analog to digital though the hdmi output of the converter in order to be able to view my pc on my hdtv. Originally this was all I wanted to do. I just wanted to use my hdtv as a monitor instead of my small monitor that Acer provides with the pc. The hdmi port is coming out of the converter though the hdmi cable. The only driver I see listed in the sound is the realtek high definition auto. I was under the impression that I could get the spdif enabled but it isn't listed as an option. I hope I have explained this correctly. My system is Acer Aspire One Series AOA-150, system winxp home addition. Thanks for responding.
