Hi all,

I have a Asus MB p5e DeLuxe \ Soundcard Creative X-Fi Elite Pro \ Asus EN9500 GT - 1GB.
On the MB there is a (3-pin) Spdif out connection which is enabled in the Bios (Enabled\AC97)
The creative X-Fi soundcard has a 4 pin connector (aux)
The Asus EN9500 has a two pin connector.

The DVI connector from the Asus EN9500 is for a acer PC monitor.
The HDMI Connector is connected to a Samsung LCD TV.

When i connect the HDMI cable to a laptop there's sound.

I've read some topics here about "HDMI No Sound" and that some had changed\twisted the arrow\plus connection on the MB or on the AsusGC two-pin connection. That's not helping for me.

In the sound-configuration from Windows Vista i have only the Creative X-Fi card and the Spdif out also from the X-Fi sound card. So not the Spdif out from the MB.

Ofcourse i've tried the basic stuff ... installing .... uninstalling .... removing Soundcard\GC etc... \ Connecting a cable to the X-Fi Elite pro Aux to the two pin connector Asus GC \ Connecting the standard cable from the GC to the Spdif out on the MB. It's driving me nuts so far ... ;-)

I'll hope the story above is not too confusing and that someone is able to help me and get hdmi-sound to the LCD TV.

With kind regards,

Ok ... took me a couple of days to figure it out:

Soundcard Creative X-Fi Elite Pro does not have a spdif out connector. So its a "impossible" combination.... (besides maybe a possible connection to the s/pdif out to the external control box <-> tv.) Anyway this is my solution which works:

Switched the above soundcard for a Creative X-Fi extreme music. (lucky i allready had one) and connected it to the Asus EN9500GT.

So the situation is:

Asus 9500GT pins: .. conect them.
Creative X-Fi extreme music: connect pins 7 and 9 from the s/pdif_io connector.

..... = eight-pin connector - bold are the connected pins. if it doesn't work reverse the connector on the grapicscard.

Hope this helpes some1 in the future

kind regards,

Hi Smobi!

Your point addresses exactly the issue I am facing, but I do not really understand what you suggest to do. I have the same XFI card as you. Would you please be kind enough as to explain more clearly what you mean by: "
connect pins 7 and 9 from the s/pdif_io connector". does it not work with the interal CD/TV connector?

I have little tech knowledge!

Thank you soo much!
