Is it possible...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
noob question here...

with my current setup i cannot have multiple audio output devices

i either have to choose between my pc speakers or my tv speakers(hooked up via hdmi cable with my gpu)

what i would like to do is have a dual monitor setup where my tv speakers handle audio from video/streams and my pc speakers handle audio for my games and music

is there an sound card that will let me do this?

cant you just switch the default playback device when you want to switch between the two?

I dont think you can do both. I had this problem a while back. Windows xp outputs to all devices but 7 can only have one. There might be a walk around but i never found one.

I doubt it's possible to output through your GPU's HDMI and an onboard 3.5mm at the same time. You might want to consider investing in a splitter for either connection.

Would this change with the addition of a second soundcard
as in
HDMI though Video Card and
Headphone output through sound card? with separate outputs as in HDMI paying a move and just its sound output, and system sounds to headphones

If your player allows to select a non-default sound device then you could do it with GPU(HDMI) and onboard - it's dependant on the software but you can use two sound devices at the same time, just not both with the same application.
