    Audio pass through question

    Is it possible to have a dedicated sound card such as a XF-I and pass the sound through a Radeon card to HDMI then to the TV without loosing out on any of the sound cards features?
    I know it can be done on Nvidia cards but last attempt didn't work as it never showed anything new in the sound CP?

    I wouldn't have thought so as you need to select a separate playback device in the sound manager in order to get the Radeon cards to output over HDMI.

    Cool ok, so looks like if I want to do it I will need to use a Nvidia card.
