I'm using an RX560 with Lilu and Whatevergreen. Dual monitors, one via DP and one via HDMI. I see two "HDMI" audio outputs for the card, but only one output works. Should I be able to get both DP and HDMI outputs working for audio? I can work with the current solution, it would just be good to know.
With applealckext along with lilu you should be able to get the option to choose between the two monitors but use only one at a time.

WhateverGreen should be responsible for HDMI/DisplayPort audio, not AppleALC.

Alc gives me the option of choosing the monitors by name vs hdmi, hdmi etc.. under systems preferences/audio.
It lists LG, Samsung etc..once they are calibrated in displays.

I didn’t say not to use WEG just to add ALC to open up options. It also opens up the mobo input/output ports. You can’t run a mic through hdmi or DisplayPort.
