I'm thinking of trying to use the HD5450 in my machine, which I use mainly for audio. I have a EMU 0404 PCI card and don't want any conflicts with the HD5450's audio controller for the HDMI port. I have heard of utilities such as the ATI BIOS editor - is there any way of disabling HDMI in the card's BIOS?

I appreciate that you can simply not choose to install the driver or uninstall it in the device manager in windows - however I would prefer not to do this. I want to be able to use the same setup in Linux too and not run into any problems.

Thanks!

Okay, your going to be using the HDMI output on the card, and you want to disable the HDMI audio. Is this right?

If it is then first thing you need to do is download the latest HDMI drivers for your card (Windows may find these for you through automatic updates). Second choose your playback audio source (Onboard, HDMI audio, or sound card).
I believe the name is Realtek ATI HDMI driver. Im not 100% sure.

To reach the playback options:
Vista/XP
Control panel, Classic Mode, Sounds, then Playback tab.
For Windows 7/Vista non classic mode control panel:
Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Sound, Playback tab

Enjoy.
