    FWIW: HDMI audio splitter are available for under US$25 from Amazon and other sources. They pass the HDMI signal (up to 4K) through while providing separate analog RCA and SPDIF audio outputs. Useful if your monitor/TV does not provide separate audio output jacks.

    Thanks BernH and Anton for your advises. Yes, maybe I had no patience, but also because I don't need so urgently to make the whole change to 4K-10bit and also update to EdiusX (even if I paid for the Edius update). I will wait (patiently) for new hardware.

    While I don't work for GV and can't exactly speak for them, I doubt very much you will see that happen. As the the years have gone by, they have been making fewer I/O cards, so I can't see them getting back into that market, especially when there are other card manufacturers out there that are offering cards that work with more software than just edius like the spark did, making them more attractive to end users.

    I still think your issue with your IP4k sounded like the firmware update never got applied. I did one install of an IP4k that I could not get to update, so I pulled it and stuck in in a different computer with different hardware, applied the drivers and update and then placed it back in the intended system. I have no idea what was causing the firmware to not install, but once I did that, future driver installs were able to update the firmware. You may have been too quick to throw in the towel and return the card.

    That's exactly what I suggested above. We do it at the office in our edit suites, although we do go through a little 4ch mackie desktop mixer for easy volume control (also as I mentioned above and in several other threads) This always gives perfect lip sync with the video monitor because the analog is sent to the speakers after any processing is done in the tv/video monitor, meaning no sync delay.

    That is the way I have seen most of the time on setups like this.

    but doing it your way, the audio will be out of lipsync

    does your TV have an audio out connector (even headphone) that you could feed to your Amp?

    also, many TV have optical audio output and many Yamaha Amps have an optical input

    the Mini Monitor 4k makes no fan noise and works perfect for me, no RCA needed, audio is delivered via HDMI

    Maybe is my card. I returned it and reinstalled the HDSpark, which is perfect for monitoring audio and video with its two RCA connectors directly to my powered speakers. The problem: I can't monitor 4K through an external TV and it doesn't work with Edius X. I stick for the moment with Edius 9, which has everything I need and use my own PC Benq monitor for color correction. The external monitor it's just 2K. I wanted to make the change to watch everything in 4K and 10 bit on an external TV, but I don't see good solutions at the moment. A pity that I paid for Edius X update.

    There must be something wrong with this unit as my Intensity Pro 4K is near silent, the only thing I hear from my pc are the cooling fans that are build into the pc case.

    No loud doesn't sound right. When i was using my IP4k (which I will have to go back to for Edius X when I make the upgrade), the initial installed drivers did not update the firmware, so the little fan on it was on full speed all the time. i decided to put in my older IP original version while I did a little research and decided what to do. Everyone was complaining of the same issue, so while I waited to see if BM would fix it, I also looked at possibly replacing the fan with something else. BM did release new drivers that installed a firmware flash and like Don the fan noise went from unbearable to about on par with any other fan.

    So once again, if you didn't see the firmware update window when installing the drivers, something is blocking it. The update does require a reboot for it to install properly, and you will see a little window come up after the reboot too if I recall. If you haven't seen that, your firmware has not been updated, and something has blocked the process.
