  • Problem using a 4K TV as a monitor

    Posted by Luigi Perrotta on July 23, 2019 at 12:38 pm

    I am a musician, I videotape my performances and show them on YOUTUBE and Public access TV. For years I mixed my audio on studio monitors. When I watched the Show on my large flat screen TV , I was always disappointed with the results. For the simple reason that flat screen TV are not capable of reproducing the deep bass that is in the music, it appeared the vocals were almost without music. I went out and purchased cheap computer speakers, it was an improvement but I was not there yet. I got a 32″ tv and alternate between the studio monitors, the cheap computer speakers and the TV. When I get a good sound from the television, it improved the total sound on the studio monitors as well. I use a singer’s video that I like as a reference.
    Now I went crazy and got a 43″ Vizio HD TV to replace my 32″ Samsung TV. All the hell broke loose. I connected the new TV with the same high speed HDM Cable. When in Vegas properties I choose the television as the Audio Device everything works fine. When I choose the studio monitors connected to my Presonus interface, the TV turns itself on and off every 30 seconds.
    I connected my 32″ Samsung back, it works fine. The 32″ television is not a 4K TV and is a few years old.
    Someone told me the problem may be the video card in the computer doesn’t support 4K Televisions. What the video card has to do with the audio? Can this be the problem?

    You forgot to give the name of your video card !

    I guess it would help

    Video card: Zotac GEFORCE GT 640
    Audio interface: Presonus Audio Box 44 VSL
    Computer: CYBERPOWER
    Windows 10 64 bit
    Intel I7 3.50 GHZ
    Memory: 32GB Ram

    The card manufacturer told me this card doesn’t support 4K TV. He couldn’t answer why it works properly when in Vegas 16 I choose the TV’s speakers it works properly. It only has a problem when I choose the audio from the interface.
    I called Presonus, they couldn’t help.

    Thank you

    “Your TV can output sound to an audio device, such as a receiver or
    sound bar.”

    Maybe you can connect your Presonus interface directly to your TV ?

    Thank you, this is an idea.
    I already packed the TV ready to return it, I was going to buy another Samsung because the smaller Samsung works well. I got find the manual on line to see if it’s possible.
    The only output from the interface is a USB port.
    The only two problems I can see with this set-up are: The TV must be on all the time and there may be a little delay
