Radeon HD5450 Audio over HDMI
Posted on 2011-05-10
My mothboard says in sounds of control panel , Windows XP, AT rear audio output or something to this nature.
The machine is an HP with what I would call Business Audio with a puny speaker somewhere in the case itself.
We added this new graphics card to do HDMI to a TV and VGA up to monitor. To my surprise, the HDMI cable to the TV is pushing audio as well and is dominating the built in audio.
This would be okay but we really want sound in both locations and for the VGA card to but out.
We bought a mini-pin splitter and ran that to TV audio input and hoped to use that as an audio split to the speakers of the desktop.
If I need to , I can go get a cheap audio card PCI if this will force windows control panel sounds to see it and then we could ????split with mini-pin???? to both sources seamlessly.
Any help is greatly appreciated. I have googl'ed for where in the Catalyst Control center to turn off Audio over HDMI.
They suggest uninstalling all software and downloading the legacy 10.2 driver package. I have done this but somehow the HDMI over Audio still worked. I suppose maybe the uninstaller left enough inf remnants to still run the HDMI over audio even after uninstall.
