    AJA T-tap

    Hello to any AJA T-tap users out there!

    I am testing one out with an LG OLED55B6  TV. It seems to work ok and avoids the problems we had with a BM device [below].

    I get a green matrix screen whenever I launch MC [v8.6.1] which clears when the app is open. I also occasionally get a "incorrect format" warning from the TV on launching MC. A reboot fixes this. 

    Is anybody else seeing these issues?

    I'm trying the T-tap because we have problems with our BM mini-monitors feeding these 4K LG OLED tvs. After a couple of hours a white a line and/or white 'sparkling'  appears on the left of the tv. I swapped out mini-monitors and had the same problem - but they are fine with Toshiba 1080p tvs.

    My T Tap works fine with MC 2019.  BUT, it still crashes on quit.  Remove T Tap and quit is normal

    Re: AJA T-tap

    When playing media with the toggle hardware button activated, I only get audio from the monitor plugged into the AJA T-TAP. I cant get audio out of the sound card and into my mixing board. When I disable the hardware button, of course I lose the video feed to the TTAP monitor, but the audio returns via sound card.

    Is there a way to display video on the TTAP monitor and audio through my sound card?

    Nope.  Avid will always send audio to the i/o device if there is one connected.  You can feed the audio board with decoded audio from the monitor or using an external HDMI or SDI de-embeder.

    Must think of something clever to go here...

    Re: AJA T-tap

    This is true, however I think it would be very helpful if Avid offered the ability to route audio separately from video.

    FYI, the NDI Open_IO plugin (previously included by default with MC) includes the ability to “Play local audio when broadcasting.” A similar feature for hardware Open IO (AJA, Blackmagic) would be useful in certain scenarios... Using headphones while sending video via HDMI to a TV for example. 

    Getting an analog audio output from existing hardware IO devices is a hassle- Neither the AJA T-TAP or Blackmagic MiniMonitor offer this. A de-embedder is ceratinly an option, but it's more devices, cables, power supplies to carry and manage.

    My two cents.
