Is it possible to Dual Stream Audio?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,
I have an asus ramapage extreme III motherboard and I'm using the onboard sound since I don't have room for a sound card with 3 video cards in the way.

That being said, I use my computer as my TV as well. I have a monitor and an LCD TV hooked up to my computer. I play movies and TV shows on the TV and at the same time can cruise the web, etc on my monitor. My audio and video are running through the the HDMI to the TV and my computer speakers are plugged into the onboard sound on the motherboard. Whenever I want to watch a TV show i need to switch the sound over to the TV and then when i want to play a game or something I have to switch the sound back over to my computer.

I was wondering if it was at all possible to have the audio stream to the TV and the computer at the same time? So I can listen to the news on the TV and play a game at the same time with diffrent audio streams?

An yelp would be much appreciated! :-)

This.

Alternatively, you can set the audio device used in each app you use. (not very elegant)

This is what I do when I want to divert audio to one device (speakers/headphones) and another to use both at the same time. it will depend on the application/program whether or not you can set it.

Example:

Play BC2 through headphones = set audio output (default) to headphones; while watching movie/TV using WMP = set WMP to default audio to external speakers (which is a setting you can configure within WMP).
