Hello all,

I figured i'd ask this question in OSX forum because i think the issue resides in software.

I have an ASUS monitor Hooked up to my mac mini via HDMI.

The sound works properly, however I have no control over it through the OS, or through using my keyboard.

It must be controlled by opening the crappy monitor menu and adjusting sound with the horrendously placed buttons.

I would accept that, if it weren't for the fact that when I play diablo III, I can adjust the game volume through the monitor's speakers via the keyboard.

So my final question is, is there something I can do through Mac OSX (Audio preferences don't work.)? Or is there a program or app i can download which will allow me to do so.

Thanks, and have a wonderful day.

Ok well after doing a little research, I found out and configured Soundflower (could have picked a better name eh?)

It has fixed the problem for me so if anyone else has the same issue, just google it and choose the proper release for your machine!

Thanks for viewing!
