UD-3900 No sound from Speakers built into Monitor


#1

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon running Windows 10 connected to my UD-3900 via USB and then to the monitor via HDMI. I can’t find a way to get sound to come from the speakers. If I disconnect the HDMI cable from the UD-3900 and connect it directly to the HDMI on the monitor all works fine. I would prefer NOT having to connect the HDMI to my computer each time as that was the point of a docking station was a single connection. Any suggestion on what I can change to get this to work correctly?

With the HDMI monitor connected to the docking station and the docking station connected to the computer, go to control panel > sound > playback device tab and select the monitor to be your default playback device and your default communication device by right clicking the instance and setting the check marks.
