Got a used 6850 but no sound over hdmi Tags: Graphics Cards HDMI Graphics Last response: March 21, 2012 5:34 AM in Graphics & Displays Share dane332 March 21, 2012 2:30:08 AM Ok so i got an xfx 6850 from ebay and hooked it up to my computer and was able to boot into windows but i have no sound over my hdmi port. I did go to amd's website and download the latest drivers. I was originally using my intel hd 2000 to put out picture and sound via hdmi and it worked fine. Using the same cable and display i am unable to get sound out. I went into the sound menu from control panel and definitely see the amd hdmi audio there and it has a green check beside it but i am unable to to test or disable it(via right clicking it.)

The cable is plugged into the video card's hdmi port. (surprised no one asked.) Do i need an hdmi 1.3 cable? i know 1.4 is supposed to backwards compatible but i never believed in that crap.
