    MC and audio output from Blackmagic Decklink Mini Monitor

    Hello everyone

    I just purchased and installed a Blackmagic Decklink Mini Monitor video card to work with MC 8.1. Video output is fine but since the card only has an HDMI and an SDI output, I only get audio from these, no audio from my sound card. It also seems there's no alternative option on the Audio Project > Hardware menu tab other than Blackmagic. Is there something I'm missing here? Why is audio output only available from my Blackmagic sources and not my speakers?

    Blackmagic will take priorities because you can output video and audio via the Blackmagic Card and that is the way Avid works, this is not very practical but you could get audio out from HDMI or SDI depending which output will be available as one of the outputs will be used for the extermal monitor.

    SDI or HDMI will need an audio de-embedder which will allow you to send the audio to your speakers.

    But if anyone has used this might be able to help further

    What I do is to plug some decent speakers into the headphone socket of my TV so the sound and picture go down the HDMI and out through the TV headphone socket to speakers.  Another alternative would send the picture to an amplifier with HDMI in, and the TV takes the output of the amp.

    I asked Black Magic about this before purchasing the card, and they said I could send audio output to my USB Mbox by just selecting it in System Preferences.  But I haven't been able to get the card to work, period.
