Add2 Video card with HDMI?

7 posts in this topic

Posted

hey guys,

 

I am using a HP Compaq dc5700 Desktop PC as a media server under my big screen in my living room.

It is running windows 7 and is attached to my network. I stream all of my network content through it to the TV using the VGA cable and mini plug in to the stereo for sound.

 

That all works just fine but I wanted to switch it over to using HDMI. SO I just bought a low profile Geforce with HDMI installed it in the PCI Express port and got this error.

 

"

922 - This System Only supports SDVO Add2 in the X16 slot"

 

do they even make Add2 cards that have HDMI ports in them? I have not been able to find anything about this online that does me any good.

 

I have been building and fixing computers since the early 90's and I have never even heard of this before. I do have some Nvidia Quatro cards that were in these machines but they are not what I need.

is there any other way to get HDMI out of this machine???

I just read something about the Assist button. I will try after my computer finishes running a hard disk scan of its drive.

Most likely because none of us know about this, so we don't want to give you false information.

I had absolutely no idea what an ADD2 card was - had to go look it up.

 

The same search on google also threw this up: http://www.avforums.com/forums/computer-systems/458619-hdmi-add2-boards-do-they-really-exist.html. Specifically post #11. Bear in mind though, that it was over 6 years ago - it's not going to be easy to find such an old piece of hardware.
