Browse your network for an AVB device in Audio MIDI Setup on Mac
You can connect an audio video bridging (AVB) device to your Ethernet network and use the Network Device Browser in Audio MIDI Setup to browse for it. Only one computer at a time can connect to an AVB device.
Before you begin, make sure you’re connected to your Ethernet network.
In the Audio MIDI Setup app on your Mac, choose Window > Show Network Device Browser, then do one of the following:
If AVB is enabled: Continue to step 5.
If AVB isn’t enabled: Continue to the next step.
Click Assist Me, then click Network in System Preferences (if necessary).
Click Advanced, click Hardware, then select the AVB/EAV Mode tickbox.
If the tickbox is dimmed, click the Configure pop-up menu, choose Manually, then select the AVB/EAV tickbox.
Click OK, click Apply, then close System Preferences.
In Audio MIDI Setup, in the Network Device Browser window, select the tickbox for the device you want to use.
If many devices are listed, you can sort the list or search for the device you want to use.
When you select a device, the Network Device Browser displays its capabilities, such as audio, video and MIDI. The device is listed in the Audio Devices window and can be set up like any other device.
To disconnect the device, deselect the tickbox in the Network Device Browser window.
