Audio from both monitors?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I just got another VH238H. One of them is hooked up through SPDIF and the other through the 3.5 jack. Is there a way to get audio out of both at the same time?

an easy way could be to hook them both up using a 3.5 jack and a splitter. It may not be the best way to do it but definitely easy.

I use a splitter on my pc to hook up both my speakers and headset.

Darn, I was hoping to do it through SPDIF since it uses only HDMI I'll look into the splitter, just annoyed it might make things look a little ugly.

I have a small form-factor splitter for a 3.5mm jack so that audio plays through all my three monitors.

It's fairly easily to hide behind my monitors.

That looks awesome--which splitter is that?

Also, are those LED light/stick behind the monitor?

Any recommendations for a splitter or will a $1 cheapo one from ebay do it?

Those are cold cathodes, but I have since moved them elsewhere.

Yes any cheap one from eBay will do.

I've got some cathode ones inside my Antec 902 (and really want a couple behind my monitors) but I'm not sure how I would get some to put behind my monitor. My monitor doesn't have any built in USBs and the nearest outlet is about 5 feet away.

Got my splitter today and plugged it in. For some reason, I can only hear audio from my right monitor, nothing is coming out of the left. Am I supposed to alter something in the settings?
