hdmi w/ sub

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i have a vizio tv that i am using as a monitor. i have an hdmi cable from my 790i to the tv. i can enable realtek to use the monitor speakers. but i can't figure out how to get my subwoofer to work. the vizio speakers don't produce enough bass to wow me.

is there anyway i can enable both audio jacks and hdmi coming from the board so i am able to use the tv speakers as my "left and right" and use the sub to make a 2.1??

Wouldn't it be easier just to use your pc speakers?

Short of that, you can use the pc sound, turn down the main/surround channels (front left, front right, and rear left/right, and center, if you have them) but leave the subwoofer sound on. Then just leave the tv on as your left and right. HDMI transmits sound so your tv won't know any different. Sub woofer will work.

realtek only allows my to enable the hdmi for the vizio and only allows me to enable the audio jacks for communication like windows sounds.

i was looking to get rid of the ugly things more consolidated this way i know there is a way to do it. i am just wondering and thinking of how

Please edit your posts rather than double-post.

This is relevant to my interests, so I'm subbing.
