Z64 - Parallel Sound on 3,5mm plug and HDMI

#1
Hey,

I have 2 questions about the z64A:

- Is it possible to have sound playback parallel at the 3,5 mm plug and the HDMI connection in parallel?
- Is it possible to turn off the Minix launcher?

Thank you,
Ben

-Yes (i almost sure) you can connect both and then is just select in settings what you want.

-You can select/switch to other launcher

Think part of that reply may be "lost in translation" lol ;)!!

Can you connect the device via HDMI & 3.5mm jack simultaneously? Yes.

Will it output via both together simultaneously? Pretty sure they won't, (limitation of Android)!! (Connect anything by the 3.5mm jack & it overrides the HDMI as if you've inserted a headset etc.

Having said that, very happy to be proven wrong :)!!!!

(Connect anything by the 3.5mm jack & it overrides the HDMI as if you've inserted a headset etc. However, you can set the default audio device in Windows sound manager to reverse this & keep the HDMI as the default audio device even if the 3.5mm jack is populated.

Of course we can connect both but playback is another thing and it is better that way ☺
I have to pay more attention ☺

Hey,

thank you for your response. I am using HDMI for the TV connection and the 3,5 mm jack for an audio connection to an amplifier. Unfortunately, the 3,5 mm connection overrides the HDMI audio signal, so I can either plug off the 3,5 mm jack or switch on the amplifier. ,o)

Thread can be closed.
