    Another option might be to see if there is the ability to disable the speakers in the monitor's settings menu. Can you post the brand/model of the monitor you are using?

    Yes, have you tried other options besides Auto Select for PC Audio?

    I did try change from AutoDetect to PC Audio and only effect I observe is that the monitor speakers don't play if I use monitor speakers as output device. In AutoDetect mode they do play.
    The manual is not descriptive on this option - >>Allow users to select the audio source or let the monitor detect it automatically.<<

    But now system default playback device seems to keep on external speakers over several PC restarts without having disable the monitor audio. I'll see if he selection will persist.

    I'm having yet another problem with the LCD not going into sleep after inactivity timeout but I'll rather ask this in new topic.
    Meanwhile thanks for advices.
