U2414H - Audio Output from HDMI source?

Jump to solution

Hi

Looking for someone with a Dell U2414H and maybe even a PS4 (or any HDMI device) to confirm something for me. I've been looking into getting myself one for use with a PS4 but have heard conflicting reports about the audio output port on the U2414H. I wanted to hook up PS4 via HDMI to the U2414H and then connect a pair of speakers to the audio output. However, I've been told the audio output port only outputs audio supplied to the monitor via the USB, Sounds odd to me but i've not been able to find anywhere to confirm that it outputs the audio from the HDMI ports too. Thanks a lot for any help. I hope i've just been misinformed as would love to order one.

Did you already find out if it works or not, because I would like to do the same thing.

Sorry, I did mean to come back here and update this. I had someone else confirm it for me elsewhere so went ahead and bought one. I can definitely confirm that whatever audio is going into the hdmi port will come out of the 3.5mm audio port on the monitor. Well ps3 at least as that's all I've used with it.

Thanks for confirming this. The Audio-Line out should be able to transmit audio from HDMI, mDP, DP sources. There is one notation in the User's Guide,
Audio-Line out = Connect your speakers*
*Headphone usage is not supported for the audio line out connector
You may need to make sure your audio source sound is set to the video output you are using.
