I have installed Qas Mixer. Looks like it needs some instruction from somebody as to how to set up the HDMI lines, or to let me know if it's even possible.
I'll take your advice and start a new thread for the sound issue. Thanx for the assistance. I could never have gotten anywhere near the answer by myself!
As far as the original problem--and what it devolved into--SOLVED!
You are welcome... I am glad we managed!
Can I ask you to go to your first post, click the Modify button and put SOLVED in the subject line?
See - I knew you'd solve it!
Glad you did... I had my doubts, ha!
