I have a new set up at work and I am trying to work out a few kinks. Here is the set up. nMP with two 24in apple LED Displays connected via mini Display. Then I have an AJA iO4k sending a 4k signal to a Samsung monitor and two HD signals to two additional monitors. I would like to go HDMI out of the nMP into a recover to monitor the audio. However when I plug the HDMI cable into the recover the OS seems to think there is another monitor connected. Is there a way to tell the OS to only send audio?
Ah, now it must be 5.1. That will probably be an appropriate audio i/o box. HDMI is going to send a video signal no matter what. At least I've not gotten it to send audio only so far. Maybe someone else knows what trick will do this. All of my audio work goes through a PreSonus Firestudio.
I was having an issue with some distorted audio coming out of of my AJA io4k. I swapped the box and it seems to be all good now. To be perfectly honest I forgot all about the audio port on the back of the computer. It can send optical out through an adapter right? Cant optical send 5.1? Or is that something with the chipset? It could be a cheap solution for some other people on here.
