    There is no Audio on the HDMI inputs even when on the Background since they have to have a Frame Sync Applied and that will strip the audio off the source.

    Any source that is Frame Synced will not pass Audio..

    The Solo does not have an "audio mixer" in it...  Ancillary Data is passed based on the source that is on the Background.  However you will not get audio from a source selected on the Background that is going through a Frame Sync.

    Any suggestions how I can keep the audio info in the signal?  I can use any other sources - for example SDI?

    If any source has a Frame Sync it will strip the Audio...

    Could I store a video in the switcher itself or xpression?  How can I cue a video with audio?  How would a power point work with audio clips?  How do broadcasters cue their videos w/ audio?

    You need an Audio Mixer...

    The Solo switcher does not have a built in Audio Mixer..

    You need to send all of the audio to an audio mixer and then use an Embedder to put that Audio back onto the PGM output.

    You would have to look at the Carbonite Ultra series since that does have an Audio Mixer Built in...

    Then just use low cost HDMI to SDI converters ... then Frame sync in Ultra which has Sample Rate converters to handle the audio..

    If I get the Ultra series...  Can't I just use HDMI ins or do they have to be SDI ins?  Thanks so much for all your help and info so far - just wanted to say that.  It has been very helpful and informative.

    Ultra does not have HDMI inputs..

    I use 5 of these with mine :)...  Have an extra one or two incase one is to fail.
