Hi!

I connected a TV set to an HDMI connector on my sound card. There is video output,
but no sound.

Your video card must have an audio input from your sound card, or from the mobo if the sound is on the mobo.
I believe the mobo output is called SPDIF. Many older video cards have no such input, and therefor there will be
no sound on the HDMI line coming out of it. (Yes, I learned this the hard way! My video card does not have such an
input.)
