I connect my 9600gt to HD TV via HDMI 1.3 cable. I get video but no audio. Please help

Good day Experts,

I am connecting my xfx 9600gt graphics card to my full HD TV via HDMI 1.3 cable. I am getting correct video signals but do not receive any audio. I am running windows 7, SPDif is enabled. It also shows the sound bar in system tray and levels are also set correctly.

I want to know if there is any thing I miss? My Motherboard has an unoccupied 3pin SPdif connection. On my graphics card I cannot seems to find the same pins and no marked detail for pins. There is however 2 pins on my graphics card and another 2 pins which has a jumper occupying the pins.

Please assist

In order to get audio you have to connect the SPDIF port on the mother board to the video card. As you say your MB has 3 pin SPDIF, connect the 2 pins which are NOT POWER pin to the 2 pins on the video card. Read the manual CAREFULLY to find out which pin is the SPDIF POWER pin and don't connect it to your video card, or else you may BURN your MB or your card.

Arabia,

Please view the picture, is this the SPdif pins? I don't have and can't find a manual.

If I leave out the power pin, does it matter which way around it should be connected to the pins on the graphics card?

I think you should connect 2 pins without jumper on your video card to 2 of the 3 pins you mentioned on your MB (ground to ground, data to data, just stay away from the power pin of the 3). You can go to XFX's website and your MB website to download the manual if you don't have those.

Read your MB's manual first. The 3 pins you mentioned one is power pin (5v), one is spdif data pin and the last is ground pin. Find data and ground pins and connect that to the corresponding your video card. Since this task required reading the manuals so i can not assist you more. Good luck.

The spdif connector on the video card is the one between the SLI connector and the s-video port.
