i wanna build a HTPC, to save power and money, i dont want buy a graphic card, so A8 with HD6550D seems a good choice,
but i am not sure that6550D support a 7.1 audio output with mainboard HDMI,
i hope your help.

First, the 6550 dose not have built in audio like a video card would so you don't have to worry about it supporting 7.1 audio, it's the mother board you have to look at.

Good FM1 socket motherboards do support 8 channel audio.

Like this ASRock A75M FM1

PII 1100T (Extinct)
Asus M4A78T-E (should be Extinct)
4Gb of Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz DDR3 (Going strong)
2x1GB 5850's (On their last lags)
Corsair HX850W (Awsome)
NZXT Phantom case (too ***** big)

The last time I checked driver support for HDMI audio was still hit or miss, so if something weird happens... that's probably where you should look first.
