Hacking the DVR again

Man, nothing makes you feel more like a hacker than downloading utilities from Taiwan, creating a new driver .inf file, and then changing hex code in the registry.  But, after hooking up the LCD TV to the DVR via a DVI --> HDMI conversion cable, that's exactly what I had to do.  Apparently, nVidia drivers transmit that audio will come out of the DVI cable, which it doesn't.  So, the TV expects both audio and video from the HDMI input, and thus - issues.  I needed video only from the HDMI, and then audio from an analog 3.5mm headphone jack.  So, Google eventually brought me to this.  Bizarre solution, but it worked.
