I have an NVidia GeForce 9500GT that I have connected to my motherboard's SPDIF output header with a cable. I have it connected to my TV through the DVI port, and added the HDMI converter at the end. It is plugged into an HDMI port on my TV. The video works great, but there is no audio. I went into Playback Device properties, but the only option is for the internal Realtek sound card. This is a new install of Windows 7 x64, and I have installed the latest drivers from the Realtek website for the HD Audio. Why is the SPDIF output not showing up in Playback Devices? I looked in the BIOS, but the only mention of anything to do with audio is to enable/disable the onboard sound...nothing about SPDIF at all. Am I missing something? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Here is a screenshot of my Playback Devices properties. It shows only the normal Realtek output. It also shows that I have it set to show disabled and disconnected devices.
