they never did? So why my GTS 250 is able to get audio from my DVI cable and put it on my TV speakers with the HDMI connector? (i use a SPDIF 2-pins cable from my sound card to the GTS 250's SPDIF on the side)
Also, i use a DVI-HDMI cable, dual-link also (so i have all 24 pins with a "-" connector on the side).
quote from Wikipedia:
Features specific to HDMI (such as remote-control, audio transport, xvYCC, and deep-color) are not usable in devices that only support DVI signalling. However, many devices can output HDMI over a DVI output (e.g., ATI 3000-series and NVIDIA GTX 200-series video cards)., and some multimedia displays may accept HDMI (including audio) over a DVI input. In general, exact capabilities vary from product to product.
So don't say "never". I know my GTS 250 supported that feature. But i wonder if the eVGA GTX 560 Ti also support that feature, that's what i want to know.
