I'll 2nd that, and that is why yesterday, after all the headache I have had with this board, I decided to change it and get rid of it. I replaced the board with a sapphire matx that has onboard hdmi port and graphics.I would caution anyone considering the M2A-VM HDMI for a 1080p panel. For some odd reason, my new rig with this very mobo and a 4200+x2 doesn't play any HD stuff without stutter and artifacts when I set it to 1920x1080 (D-SUB) and apparently I am not the only person with this problem. The results is really quite disappointing so far. I'll research more and hope it is not a hardware limitation.
As soo as I change dthe board and hooked it up, I got sound from the TV, which I was able to do with the m2a-vm hdmi mobo. The pci e slot on this sapphire can later be used for a 8500/8600 gt vide card.
The asus m2a-vm hdmi pci e slot was taken up by the add on hdmi card. Oh and my aquarium screen saver played for an hour without freezing on this new board.
