    Audio playing through Matrox MINI

    I recently got the matrox mini and everything worked great, with the exception of the audio. My audo is playing back through the HDTV i have hooked up to the HDMI OUT. i want the audio to play through the seakers i have hooked up to the speakers that are connected directly to the computer. when i go under the audio output setting in media composer 6 i cant select my computers audio the only hardware option is the matrox. does anyone know how to fix this so i can monitor the sound through my speakers and not my tv?

    I think the controls you need are in the Matrox System Pref pane.

    You are of course aware of that when you use your third party unit for video only playouts whilst the audio is going through your computing system you will have all your playouts out of lipsync.

    I can only reinforce Tomas' comment above, Tyler.  You definitely do not want to use your PC sound card.  Use the sound produced by the Matrox box.  It's the only way that you'll be able to assess sync.

    You can use the audio connectors on the mini in parallel with the HDMI outputs.  Maybe that will solve your problem.  I say "maybe", because if the monitor introduces significant delay (many do) you will still have sync issues.

    Then your only option will be to take an audio feed from the monitor to your amp.  If you're lucky the monitor will have signal-level audio out on RCA or SCART/PERI connectors.  Otherwise you'll need to use the headphone output.

    I use audio out on matrox mini and connect to external active speakers. Works very well on my system.. No sync issue here.

    Re: Audio playing through Matrox MINI

    Thanks everyone. I quess i was expecting a little more from the third party. I went ahead and took audio out from the matrox and put it over to my speakers. only downside to that is i can't control my speakers from my keyboard anymore, which is not a big deal. there is a lag between video on my desktop and video on my client monitor, but only by a few frames.
