I'm assembling my HTPC and have run into my first hurdle...I don't have any way of getting audio to my Sony Bravia TV!
I have an MSI 8500GT HDMI Graphics Adapater and an Asus M2N-XE Motherboard. The 8500GT has a small 2 pin header to take a S/PDIF audio connection but the problem is the motherboard doesn't have a S/PDIF connector to feed it.
There is a glimmer of hope and that is the mobo has an external coaxial S/PDIF port. Can I somehow engineer a cable to be able to pass audio to the graphics card? Will an RCA plug and a 2 pin header do the trick or am I likely to damage the graphics card?
I don't have an AV Receiver so the only way I can think of getting audio is through the HDMI cable.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
