HDMI Out Feature4/3/2009
I wanted a card with an actual HDMI out port to run to a TV. This setup works fine to watch Netflix or other movies on TV while being steamed to my PC. To get the sound to the TV I have to select the ATI sound device through Control Pannel. I can have sound on the PC sound card or the ATI sound chip on the Video Card but not both at the same time. I was a little dissappointed with that. When first installing the card I had trouble. Got a black screen. Had to reboot several times but finally got it working. Card is good for the money.
