Hello everyone :)

I recently ran a fresh install of Sierra (10.12.6) on a rig sporting an asus z97-a mainboard and a GTX980 video card. I just changed the monitor for one that (believe it or not) has built-in speakers but no line-in jack connector... Just like a 2017 smartphone ;)

Thus audio has to be transmitted via the HDMI or DP cable. I use a DP cable.

I installed ALC892 via multibeast 9.2.1 and I get audio from the line-out jack on the mainboard.

I cannot figure out how to get the audio to the speakers of the monitor, though.

This is probably quite trivial but could anyone help me out here?

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

Best,
-a-

ALC892 is not used for DP/HDMI audio. To configure GTX 980 DP/HDMI audio, see
HDMI Audio AppleHDA/cloverHDMI
Thanks again :)

I'm using DP, should I look into "/cloverHDMI" anyway?

Is there any way around that (in /OS X HDMI and/or DP audio support):

Before you begin
  1. macOS does not provide HDMI/DP audio controls
    1. No volume, no mute, no balance, etc.
    2. Use the connected DP/HDMI device (TV, receiver, etc.)
Like maybe a companion app that would allow to have a slider or something to adjust DP audio volume (even better if it could be placed on the top bar).

It's very technical. It's a bit hard for me to understand but I try my best :)

Should I uninstall ALC892 somehow or it won't hurt if I leave it there?

Thanks
