    MC 12, AJA T-Tap, and split audio output

    I recently got the AJA T-Tap to monitor to an older FSI 2450 monitor.  The mini audio output from the FSI is terrible!  I wonder if that's the way it is or if my mini jack is damaged?  

    Is there anyway to split the audio to output via the computer and video out to the T-Tap?

    Thanks!

    To my knowledge there's no way to split audio/video playback between different devices, but this would be a great feature.

    We have T-Taps in all of our rooms, and we used to use the de-embedders built into our JVC video monitors but they're awful. We've since installed spearate SDI audio de-embedders for this exact reason. The Blackmagic SDI to HDMI converters are pretty cheap, and they include stereo analog audio outputs which sound way better than the JVCs. Still, it's another part to buy and replace if it fails.

    Which converter are you using?  I can't seem to find a BM SDI to HDMI with seperate audio out?  I did find a SDI to Audio out which is about $200.  

    I called FSI and over the phone they said the board could be the issue and it costs $395 to replace and I would have to pay shipping both ends.  Not sure if I should fix it or patch the problem by adding an adapter.
