Default Re: Anyone figure out how to play system sounds through HD Omni?

I'm still a little confused about using the Omni to play back iTunes.

I spoke with Avid Technical Support and was advised the Omni/Thunderbolt configuration will not play Pro Tools and iTunes simultaneously. iTunes will play through the Omni with Core Audio Manager software open provided Pro Tools is NOT running.

Will the suggestions provided earlier in the thread... like connecting the headphone out of my iMac to the spdif "in" of the Omni...allow me to have Pro Tools running and then open iTunes and have it play through the Omni simultaneously?

When Pro Tools is open, I noticed the volume icon on the upper right hand menu bar is grayed out, and although iTunes will open, it won't play. I tried connecting a spdif cable from the Headphone out to the Omni SPDIF "in", but nothing changed. What am i missing?

I am new to the HD Thunderbolt/Omni bundle so be gentle!

I'm using:
PT 10.3.3 (HD Native)
Apple iMac: iMac 3.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 27"
RAM: 32 GB
Operating System: Apple Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion)
