I would not recommend the Elgato because of this. This is a video of the process I use to get the sound working: https://youtu.be/cl9HpAoM6hU
I'm having this same issue with no HDMI audio on my Elgato, but it's also affecting how I normally route my audio through my HDMI switch as I also do not get audio coming out of my monitor. I swear I've somehow tricked audio into working once for a single Arcade core but was unable to reproduce it reliably. Understandably there's a ton of things in my HDMI chain that could be causing interference but the MiSTer is the only HDMI device where I've failed to get sound so far. (tried both sample rates in the configs.) Whenever I plug the MiSTer directly into my TV everything works fine 100%.

But by standard default is LPCM 48kHz that MisTer generates). I've created version of HDMI init that makes Elgato happy and allows to hear sound, but seems it produces issues with some TVs. That's why it was not released. Good news - running such core enables audio till HDMI cable disconnected or MiSTer powerdown. So I can run 'enabler' core and then use any core without issue

Something about NES/SNES/Gameboy will fail to produce audio when connected to my monitor / elgato but will work fine on my TV. Other cores like Genesis and Minimig work 100%

It appears to only work for cores using the open source scaler and does not work for the older scaler.
