    Client Monitor Audio (HDMI)

    I have my client monitor hooked up to my MC6 using a Kona LHi card.  It's connected through HDMI and working well, the only problem is that the audio is also going through the HDMI and coming out the client monitor's speakers.  This sounds pretty crappy and now my monitor speakers are effectively useless.

    Is there any way to stop the audio from going through HDMI so I don't have to hear my work through TV speakers? I just want to use the line out on my mac for audio.

    Re: Client Monitor Audio (HDMI)

    My first question is this:  Is the audio from Monitor speakers in sync with the TV speakers?

    If not, why not consider (if possible) looping the audio from you Client Picture monitor to your Audio Monitors and muting the Client Picture monitors speakers.  Now your high quality sound will be in sync with picture.

    Re: Client Monitor Audio (HDMI)

    Sorry I may not have been clear...Once the audio is going to the client monitor my monitor speakers cease to function in avid (they still work with regular computer sounds).

    If I understand what you're saying, I'd take the audio out from the television and hook it up to my mixing board and then would be able to hear through my monitor speakers again.  I did consider this however the only audio out on the TV is an optical out, which in order to use I'd have to hook up to a DAC then into my analog mixing board.  This is a possibility but I'm looking for an easier solution.

    Not while you have an I/O device hooked up. Like was stated you would need to hook up to your monitor audio outputs.

    What is the make / model of the TV?
