I’m typing this post on my Raspberry Pi 400, using Firefox instead of Chrome. I have no sound, and tomorrow I will visit the local shop where I bought my monitor for a solution. It’s no biggie, as a dev machine, but I want sound anyway.

@renevanbelzen Yay, this post makes me smile. 😊 That looks awesome! Sorry to hear about the sound acting up, but hopefully, that's just a software thing. Are you trying to deliver sound over HDMI to the monitor?

@sod Yes. Is there another way?

@renevanbelzen In theory, at least, but it depends on what kind of inputs your monitor has. And you might need to buy additional hardware, and we don't want to break the budget. 😊 HDMI is the easiest option, so let's hope it's just a software glitch. Here are some alternatives for the sake of reference.

@sod D'oh! Just read it in the specs. The monitor doesn't have built in speakers, just HDMI audio out. Solved it with an old BT speaker, which doesn't keep charge, but works on a charger. Not that I'll be watching much videos on the Pi, too slow.

@renevanbelzen Good to hear it worked out. Hehe, you could watch music videos all day if you wanted to; the Pi comes with hardware accelerated video decoding. It should be able to play 4K content without breaking a sweat. ⁨πŸ’ͺ

@sod Right. So it's my ISP's crappy wifi again. I switched to my Apple Airport Express, which has a much more stable, though slower throughput.
