I have had nothing but issues with the 4770.... My latest problems is that I built a computer for a friend with this card in it, thinking that it was guaranteed that it would do audio over HDMI (via converter).
I personally have a 3850, and I'm using its dvi to hdmi adapter since XFX is apparently too cheap to put one in with their card. The card shows up as not plugged in on his on his playback devices.... We have the newest drivers, CCC, and avivo on there. Once it popped up something about getting an adapter, yet this is the one that came with my card. I am baffled... Any ideas??? Could it be that the adapter works with the 3xxx series but not the 4xxxx series? This is killing me
Hi, it clearly think you are using an hdmi to dvi cable instead of hdmi to hdmi.
I am unsure of why that would be the case. I know as well as you that it should transmit audio fine. The drivers appear to be working at least in that second screen shot you posted as the HDMI is shown.
Has the TV/monitor got a second HDMI input you could try by any chance. The card appears to be misreading it.
That I do not know as I have only used the ati supplied one. However, unless the capabilities of the 4 series changed somewhat from the 2 and 3 series to warrant a different adapter I would have thought it would have worked.
Ok, so I just got done installing my 350 in his rig to make sure it wasn't related to the mobo. I plugged it it, updated drivers, restarted... then boom - audio works on the 3850. Plugged the 4770 back in and nothing on the audio side still.
It has to be hardware or software related to the card, I'm very close to giving up on it...
