Just picked up a Macbook Air 2020 from Bestbuy. I looked around for a good monitor that supports USB Type-C but nothing available in my area at the moment. I then picked up a Acer-ET322QR monitor until I upgrade later.
I picked up a USB Type-C/HDMI chord so I could connect the two products. All worked well except for when I tried to get the audio coming through the monitor. This monitor does have two speakers, I tried the following:
First checked to see if audio would go through the HDMI port but no luck. When in the audio settings it says that "The selected device has no output controls".
Second I followed the manual which says connect the provided audio chord into the Audio In port and connect the other to the mac. I connected this through the headphone jack but still not luck.
I am guessing the audio must come from USB Type-C port and then use an adaptor to connect this into the audio jack on the monitor
Before I go through the hassle of ordering this online, could someone confirm my suspicions that this is the problem or is there something I am overlooking?
