Are you sure you just don't have the plug plugged in all the way, or maybe you need to raise the output audio in System Preferences > Sound?Thanks for your excellent guide.
I followed your tip for the Dual Boot Audio issue and bought that
Monoprice 6inch 3.5mm Stereo Jack/Two 3.5mm Stereo Plug Cable.
When I plug it in to the suggested outputs the volume level in OSX
is severely diminished to the point of being unusable. As soon I remove
one leg of the Y cable from the "Blue" windows 10 output all is fine in OSX.
Am I doing something wrong or is that how it is.
Thanks in Advance.
Lastly, when you boot to windows 10, is the audio fine in Windows? (i.e. both male ends of the cable are plugged in to both the Mac and Windows port)
If the audio is passing through fine for Windows 10, switch the "Y" male inputs and test the cable. If Windows 10 audio was fine, and then when you switch the male inputs it reduces the audio levels in Windows, then you have a faulty cable.
The "Y" is passing audio though, and since it's a dual-boot setup, there's never audio going for Mac and Windows at the same time, so there should be no level change or audio issues. If you had an audio "hum" I would suggest a ground-loop isolator, but what you're describing isn't noise, it's low level audio. This is a straightforward cable so I would triple check the connection and Mac settings.
