So here's the situation: I have, since a couple of years ago, used a nice little gadget called Kanex XD. It is simply an HDMI to Mini Display port, which allows me to play Xbox 360 on my iMac 27 ". It has always been clear as a bell!


When I decided to buy the thing, I was not sure if it would work with my current sound system. But it did! I run all the audio from my mac through a firewire audio interface called Focusrite LS 56 (from the audio interface I have Yamaha HS80M, info for geeks like me).


The audio has functioned really well through my Focusrite. But when I updated to the latest OSX (10.7.4), the audio from my Xbox only plays through my internal speakers. Otherwise, the sound works as usual. It's only when I play my Xbox through my Kanex XD, the audio goes through the internal speakers.


I guess it's something that happened in the new update that makes it impossible to play the sound from my Xbox through my audio interface.


Does anyone have an explanation?


I contacted the Kanex XD support. They said that there's nothing they can do and that it probebly have somthing to do with the update (OH RLY!?).


Hope you guys could help me out.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
