If I plug in the HDMI cable to the DVI port the same was as I always used to, audio works. If I plug in the HDMI directly into the card, my on board audio is getting disabled. I've had issues in the past with ATI cards that had there own HD audio that would try and hijack things, but to my knowledge, this Nvidia card doesn't have any built in audio. I'm thinking this might be HDCP type dealie, but why would it work with the DVI-HDMI adapter and then not with a direct connection.
Yes the 8500GT does HDMI audio.. so let it use it :P
