One computer, audio on two different monitors. Possible?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

So I have my TV hooked up to my computer, along with my normal day use monitor. I use the TV to run Netflix off my PC, and want the audio of Netflix (or my browser, more accurately) to play on my TV, while everything else plays in my headset. Is this doable? Can I split the different audio sources on my computer to different inputs?

Some high-end soundcards can do this, or, since Windows 8, most can through the new way Windows manages audio. However, even then there's gonna be a slight problem with the fact that browsers and flash normally automatically use the Default output as defined under windows, as do most other programs that don't let you change the output. So you'd have to set the TV as the default output, then change settings of other programs to use the headphones output. The setting is available on media players, audio editing/synthesizers, and most games, but not on much else.
