Ah, I saw that audio SNAFU over on the AVS forums. That and the lack of DVI-A support are my two biggest problems with the 780G chipset. I didn't feel like mentioning the problem you mentioned because I didn't think that most people cared that much about HD audio over HDMI.

I'm betting that they had a hard deadline in their engineering dept and just "didn't get enough time to implement" that feature. If they let that poor fellow do it, I bet he'd love to implement it. Unfortunately, he'll probably be tasked with something that they want more, such as power management or die-size reduction via custom cells to reduce transistor count.

There are times that I don't like being in a company that is publicly owned. It's that short-term outlook that sucks.
