1 PC CAN output 2 separate audio sources

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I justed wanted to share this because a long while back I asked OCN if this could be done and no one had any clue.

I have my PC setup to output an HDMI signal to separate 50" HDTV (I have a blu-ray drive in my PC, also netflix streams, Hulu, etc.)

I wanted to know if I could have audio output on the HDTV and my PC at the same time.... And now I do!


The setup was simple but I am a mediocre troubleshooter.

All I had to do is this:

  1. HDTV = default device
  2. Speakers = Default communication device
  3. Digital Audio = Disabled***

2 & 3 was the magic formula smile.gif

EDIT:
This is useful for anyone who has kids like me and they want to watch streaming on TV and I can browse around with my own audio on My PC. Video upload soon to display it in action.

i have fiber optic to my surround receiver and the analog connection from my creative sb x-fi titanium and just use the regular for default audio and spdif out as communications works great.
Love being able to use two connections at once. and both can play at the same time.

Took trial and error to get fiber optic alone to work.
