Is it true HDMI over AGP can't allocate IRQ resources to video and sound, meaning if you use an AGP card and connect an HDTV to it, you'll get no sound?

This seems like a real and common problem from further research. This sucks. The video card manufacturers should at least mention this potential deal-breaker in their products' descriptions.

I've never seen an AGP card with HDMI-out.

Me neither... until NOW!

It was the first one I found.

I think we need more information...

1. What video card?
2. What operating system?
3. What power supply (might be needed, not sure)
4. What model display?

The video card is the exact one you linked. Windows XP Home 32-bit SP3, FSU Group 480 W, and HP LA1751g.

 It could've just been a defective card or some other incompatibility, but I just want to hear your thoughts.

 

 

It should work but make sure XP is updated with the Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio class driver. Now, forking out 60USD(+) for just a video card, why not make the step to a better system? Craiglist/ebay has tons of options for under 100USD that have HDMI out as well. That is my thought...
