Thanks for trying to fix the problem and confirming that it was a driver problem like I had suspected.
As for updating drivers, that was my first thought as well. I have the latest Intel driver for the audio chip, so that isn’t a solution.
The workaround with an audio plug inserted into the audio port is acceptable for me.
P.S. If you do find a solution, or some other way to stream audio with the audio muted at the server, please post in this thread so I can test it out. Thanks.
Yes, I’ve already done this. I’ve plugged in an audio plug to mute the sound at the miniPC (pink plug in the photo) and then unmuting the sound on the miniPC. This means that I can stream the audio from the miniPC to my MacBook Pro without audio spilling out from the miniPC.
I’m eagerly waiting for your fix.
I tried your suggestion this morning and unfortunately, streaming sound to my MacBook Pro doesn’t work at all with the selection of the NoMachine Microphone adapter. Please see attached screen shot.
When you do your fix, please note that my laptop with the RealTek sound chipset streams fine to my MacBook Pro with the audio muted on the laptop.
Just another data point to consider: I have another PC that has RealTek sound hardware and that works with the audio muted at the PC end.
My miniPC has an Intel SmartSound hardware, so perhaps that’s the problem.
I’m not sure which is server or client in the NoMachine world. In order to have sound streamed from the MiniPC to my MacBook Pro, I have to *unmute* sound on my MiniPC (as indicated in the jpg above).
When the MiniPC audio is unmuted it plays through its speakers and streams to my MacBook Pro. When sound is muted on the MiniPC as shown in the jpg, there’s no sound streamed from the MiniPC to my MacBook Pro and it is muted at the MiniPC as well. I believe this is not working the way NoMachine audio streaming is supposed to work.
Sorry, I meant “ The weird thing is that there is no audio streamed from the miniPC to the MacBookPro unless the miniPC *audio is ENABLED*”
Any help appreciated. Thanks!
