From the online website you're supposed to connect to the HDMI 1 slot, not 2. Pretty sure this is your model, KDL-40EX500, 2 is on the side, have you tried just using VGA?

Would it work if you switched the the adapter to another DVI output? Also try the TV out using component cables.

No, unless you got the wrong driver, go on XFX's website and download the latest for XP.

the HDMI cable is connected to your GTS 250? Did you connect the SPDIF cable to your motherboard? If its not connected you wont get sound from the HDMI port.

SPDIF is only necessary if you use HDMI to connect a graphics card to a TV and the card for some reason can't send audio over HDMI, however since your using an adapter since the card knows it can't send audio over HDMI anyway, tell me when VGA works is it with a DVI-VGA adapter or the motherboard's VGA port.

Yah i am using a DVI-VGA adaptor, and also tell me if i change my graphic card with HDMI slot then i dont required the SPDIF, i just simply need a graphic card with built in HDMI slot which will work for both audio and video right ?

Yeah, however this is an expensive route to take, why not just stay with VGA and audio? Unless PC in doesn't support your TV's resolution. As for your question I would recommend a Radeon 5670 as a good HTPC card.

My PC support the 1080p accordingly to the TV 1080p except i am unable to get sound via HDMI interface, and the only reason i am worried for this is only cos of analog and digital signal if i use vga we got analog signals and on HDMI its digital

Either way the TV should get the 1080p resolution, only the PC and TV now have to do a little more work converting the digital and analog signals, and the fact that you can't wwatch HDCP content over VGA, so go ahead with your new graphics card.

To be able to watch HDCP (copyright protected material) like blue ray you need to use HDMI. Here's how to get video and audio using HDMI link.

I have a GTX 280 OC on one of my pc so i'm sure it should work on your card.

1) You need DVI/HDMI converter(If your GPU have DVI port only). You can request it for free from XFX or purchase it at your local computer store.

2) Nvidia cards don't have its own Audio chip. It uses a PASS-THROUGH approach to facilitate audio on its DVI/HDMI port. To accomplish this (AS SUGGESTED EARLIER ON THIS TREAD) you need to connect SPDIF cable between your GPU and Soundcard/Motherboard. This is the physical audio link from SOUND CARD->GPU->DVI/HDMI->HDTV.

Note: ATI GPU don't require SPDIF cable since it has realtek audio chip inside the video card. Nvidia's Fermi card has built in audio chip. The older nvidia GPU has no audio chip.


3)Go to control PANEL , SOUND OPTION. Select SPDIF as your Audio Default Playback

4) Check your connection: DVI/HDMI Converter-> HDMI Cable-> HDTV

You are good to go at this stage. You get audio/HD-video on your HDMI cable and can play HDCP(i.e. Blue Ray Disc) based movie.

Thx for the reply mate but answer me more clearly


1) You need DVI/HDMI converter(If your GPU have DVI port only). You can request it for free from XFX or purchase it at your local computer store.

Answer: I am using a DVI to HDMI cable


2) Nvidia cards don't have its own Audio chip. It uses a PASS-THROUGH approach to facilitate audio on its DVI/HDMI port. To accomplish this (AS SUGGESTED EARLIER ON THIS TREAD) you need to connect SPDIF cable between your GPU and Soundcard/Motherboard. This is the physical audio link from SOUND CARD->GPU->DVI/HDMI->HDTV.

Answer: Where i connect this SPDIF cable on my XFX card there is only 2 DVI slots ? and i am using the built in sound on my DP45SG mobo

I am using XFX GTS 250 1gb Core Edition
