Yes i am sure. The monitor has line in and line out and i can select HDMI as audio source in the monitor OSD options ...
Anyway, should I not be able to see the HDMI audio source in "playback devices" in Sounds? It is supposed to list even disconnected/disabled devices but still nothing shows up...
