Not sure how to explain. Have Mac Pro Book, Yamaha RX-A4A receiver. The Mac Pro book is connected to the receiver which outputs the video source to the Big TV. So essentially I can select PC on my receiver and have my screen mirrored. Watch movies from hard drives, Stream, etc. it all works flawlessly because the laptop screen is too small and this way I can do everything on the TV.
When I watch videos everything works fine. The minute I start using Audirvana it triggers my receiver to switch to “Server” and my screen is no longer mirrored and the only thing on the TV screen is a giant music player control without the ability to pull up the library or essentially do anything else. I still have to do everything on the laptop but I have to get up and hunch over it and try reading it.
It could be a dealbreaker for this software which is a shame because it’s the best sound I’ve ever heard from my system but this is s severe limitation. Hoping someone has some suggestions.
If you click on ‘window’ in the menu bar at top of audirvana, you will see the option to "move to — ( whatever your external screen is called. )
But… this may only work if your external monitor is directly connected to your mac.
