You would not get sound dvi/hdmi in either direction. If the mobo/video card output through hdmi, then your adapter to dvi loses sound, conversely, if the mobo outputs dvi, the hdmi won't get any audio feed.hyperzore wrote: ↑Dec 12th, 2012 3:46 pmCould you possibly add a dvi to hdmi adapter for like 10 bucks like http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.as ... 6812270286
Is there any loss in quality and I'm assuming one would also get sound when hooked up to the tv with this adapter ?
The alternative is you can use the speaker jack on the mobo (or some video cards) or get a sound card.
Realistically, if you are planning to use as a HTPC, hdmi is a must. Don't bother with other standards. Almost universally all LCD/Plasma/LED tvs contain HDMI, the other standards are mostly legacy for monitors.
