Do you mean your graphics card doesn't do sound over hdmi?

I think he means he doesn't want both sound and video going to the TV.

HDMI should allow that. I have my monitor connected via HDMI to my Radeon 4850 and I have two sound devices to choose from in windows, one for the HDMI cable and another for my sound card going to my headphones (which is set to the default device and gets most of the use).

TVs can have problems with VGA input so I would say HDMI is your best option until you've conclusively found out that it won't work on your setup.

What outputs does your computer have?

Ps best way to connect and have tv sound working and sound card to av amp working,the only way i have managed is vga to tv + 3.5mm jack to tv from sound card & sound card to av via 3,5 jack to phono adapter,these throgh a3.5 male to 2 3.5 female splitter,thanks again-would like to use HDMI, tv has 3 hdmi 1vga but no dvi

And what are the outputs on the soundcard and inputs on the amp?

Ideally the amp would have HDMI passthrough so you could connect the video card to the amp and then the amp to the TV. Second best is probably HDMI to HDMI on the TV and S/PDIF to the amp.

How long have you had the TV for and are there any problems? I'm thinking of getting one for my new xbox slim.
Do you have photos of it?
