Dancing_Banana add on card question

Guys I have a question for the HTPC world : you know those addon cards ( ADD2 ) that were used on the core 2 duo systems that were giving a DVI or HDMI connection, do they pass sound over the HDMI connection?

Not 100% sure on this but I believe your motherboard must be capable of passing sound via the PCI-E if you want to pass sound by the video card. Usually this is an option in the BIOS. For my setup, I use the SPDIF pin out on the motherboard and pass it back to the video card to enable sound over DVI / HDMI.

Any chance this is the low profile version of the same card?

Amazon.com: HP Intel DVI-D ADD2 Sdvo PCI-E Adapter For DC7100(Low Profiie) 359301-003: Electronics

If so, one of the comments states that audio is not passed through via HDMI.

actually the card I am talking about is a part of the accesories combo coming with the Jetway X Blue G45, shown here. Jetway - Tech.On The Move - Motherboard - XBLUE-G45
the card in the picture I saw a pic on newegg, can output HDMI and DP

for sswilson : I already know that G45/Q45 chipset is not passing audio through a dvi to hdmi adapter, already tried that. I guess I will give up on that idea then.
