Hi all, I have just connected one of my PC's to a LCD telly as a secondary display (I have recently signed up to Netflix and wanted to watch on the TV rather than sat at the computer).

The setup right now is a HD 4890 graphics card, with one output direct to main HD monitor and and the new 7m HDMI cable from the same all the way to the telly.

I have picked the setting to mirror my desktop and all works fine with sound passing through the HDMI cable too.

However, I have to change the default sound from speakers to ATI HDMI audio in order to have the sound route to the TV whenever I watch via the TV.

I'm not sure its possible but is there a more elegant method that the system can do this automatically?

Switching the default output each time is rather finikity.

Cheers Annie, interesting that its a common issue that people have developed scripts for it.

They would work and I've had a little think about it.

In my case, a more elegant solution would be if I could have multiple audio outs simultaneously. I.e. sound would be on my PC speakers and on the TV (via the HDMI cable) concurrently.

Then, while using the PC, I'd switch off the TV or if watching the TV I can click off the speakers (mine have a cabled on and off switch that controls balance, volume etc).

I can't figure out how to do this though. I run Windows 7 but it only allows me to set 1 default audio.

Does Windows 7 not allow this?
