[Guide] Remote Gaming on Unraid

12. Potential issues

Issue: No sound from Parsec (click me)
  • Parsec by default captures your primary audio device.
  • Even if you have passed through your audio device correctly, if it doesn’t have a target it will not render audio. This is why I recommend HDMI dummy plugs over other models, since they also emulate sound devices.


  1. Right click on your sound icon, then “Open Sound settings”
  2. Click “Sound Control Panel”

    This is a functioning dummy plug/sound device

    This is a non-functioning dummy plug/sound device


Luckily, you can solve this problem by using Virtual Audio Cable.
Simply install it, and you’re good to go. (you may have to restart Parsec and/or the VM)

Issue: Black screen with Nvidia RTX client (not host)


When “H.265 HEVC” is enabled in Client Settings, also make sure to turn on “Decoded Compatibility”.
