[olug] HDMI card suggestion (with audio)

My mythbuntu box was built on top of an nvidia chipset that had onboard 
HDMI audio.

For the longest time I had to manually patch the kernel to enable 
HDMI-audio via the motherboard (no add in card).

I can say, after the patch and stuff, nvidia + hdmi audio worked fine.

Doesn't really fit your situation, but it's a note none the less.

However I read somewhere that Adobe will eventually support the AMD cards. For under $100 I'm thinking the Radeon HD 6000 series as they support HDMI, display port, DVI/VGA port. The new AMD APU can stream HD np and are great price, but looking at new MB, APU etc...

That works well enough, but the card is old and under-powered to display 1080 resolution, plus the audio occassionally drops out for about 10 seconds...which appears to be motherboard audio related.
