This question already has an answer here:
I have a slightly older desktop running Ubuntu Linux with an older Nvidia GeForce 9-series graphics card (with only DVI and VGA output).
I recently got a new HDTV and want to use that as the monitor for this box. Before I run out to get a DVI -> HDMI adapter, I want to know if the audio output can be piped through this as well. I will have no other option for audio.
My only other option is to be a new, relatively cheap graphics card (sub-$100 range) with an HDMI out. Will this be my only other solution?
When I use the integrated video using the HDMI port built into the motherboard, it is at 1080p and works well with the new TV, but the quality is terrible..
