Adobe talks with Blackmagic regularly and we were recently made aware of this change. It is, clearly, not something under our control but we can provide feedback to them about your responses to the change.
You are correct, After Effects does not play back audio through Mercury Transmit like Premiere Pro does. This was something we considered for After Effects CC 2014 (CC), but at the time we were developing this release there was no urgent need to do so, and this would require significant work to re-wire how After Effects plays back audio. We will continue to talk with Blackmagic and evaluate what the best plan is going forward.
Please don't hesitate to file feature requests for us about these issues: http://adobe.ly/feature_request
Thanks! I will. But the most amazing thing is they saying it was not designed to work like that, still since the beginning offered a driver to do so, and to make it even more absurd, the driver is still being loaded on the system, just the functionality was stripped off the product. It is like if you release next version and you take off the tracker or the color correction tools... Just absurd. Sorry for the rant. Just make no sense why they would do that on Windows but still keep it on Mac...

Hi Tim, as I was unable to get any satisfactory answer from Blackmagic, they do not even seem to be reading the forums, someone suggested to roll back the card to version 9.x.x (the latest one) and that he was using CC2014 with the old driver. So I did, and Premiere works with the old driver, but AE CC2014 still shows the same thing that says mercury playback, and even when I select it, and there are no errors, I can not see video on the output, is there way to make AE CC2014 work with the drivers pre 10x ?

The Blackmagic 10.x driver has fixes for bugs that occurred when using After Effects as the Mercury Transmit host. Using an older driver will expose those bugs again. I'm not aware of any workarounds for those issues.
Thanks! Hope this is possible for Adobe, to get all video and audio on the same board. Sometimes when use the motherboard audio, the lipsync is pretty bad.
