Looking but have not yet there such a thing available yet?

Wanting to connect my laptop with my HDTV...but only currently connected via the PC/VGA input, so no sound other than via lappy...
I could connect sound via audio out on lappy, but then sound would be rubbish and too many cables...

If I could get a cardbus/pcmcia card that has hdmi, that would be perfect.

Anyone know of one?

(this is just a temporary setup until I get my HTPC)

if such a device existed (it probably does) then I expect it would cost a lot.  you're probably better off either living with the laptop sound or picking up a cheapie USB audio device for $20 to $40 instead
