My video doesn't have any audio when connected via HDMI. What should I do?

Digital audio output settings are not standardized and can change across different platforms and devices. If you are not hearing audio from your HDMI source, we suggest checking the source's audio settings and verifying that they are set to PCM Stereo mode.


The Projector Deluxe does not support Dolby Digital 5.1. If this is the only option that your HDMI source allows for, then the video's audio can still be streamed via Bluetooth or by directly connecting the video source to the Projector Deluxe's Aux Input with a 1/8" cable.
