Hey guys, I tried so many ways but cannot get to a solution. I even tried this:

with the steromix enable and all that to no avail.

So here's the breakdown: I DON'T use my integrated realtek speaker card. Instead, I use my primary sound with an Audio Interface (Scarlett 18i8 USB). So the audio interface is connected to my PC via usb. To receive sound, I have a bose speaker pair connected the audio port of the interface <- My primary sound speaker. My secondary connection is an HDMI to my HD TV. *I already have my main monitor connected via DVI* The secondary HD TV is set as duplicate display. I'm trying to get sound to work out of my main speakers (focusrite) and as well as my HD TV (via HDMI). Please let me know if you need more information!

Hi,

Not sure if this is possible, but thought I'd toss it out there... I'd like to have audio sent via HDMI to my monitor while at the same time using the MoBo output jack for a subwoofer. I've only been successful with one or the other by itself in any configuration I've been able configure.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

A:HDMI Audio AND Realtek MoBo Audio Simultaneously

Does your monitor have an Audio Out? Some do. If it does, HDMI to the monitor, then audio out from the monitor to your subwoofer. Mind you plugging something into the audio out may turn off the monitors internal speakers. You won't know until you try
But…here’s the kicker! A subwoofers job is to not only produce lower frequencies but to also blend nicely into its satellites (speakers). This is most commonly accomplished by either designing the sub and satellites to work together in that the lower cut off frequency of the satellites is close to the higher cut off frequency of the subwoofer. The other is to have an adjustable crossover that will allow you to match the subwoofers higher cut off frequency to that of the satellites lower cut off frequency. You also need to match their output (sound) so that they are even (or close enough!). Otherwise you will get a lot of boom from the sub and not be able to hear much from the monitor.
Monitors with built in speakers are not designed with fidelity in mind. They have tiny amplifiers and do not go very loud without sounding terribly distorted. Even if your monitor does have an audio out, you may be presented with the impossible challenge in trying to match it to your subwoofer. Honestly, you are better off purchasing a 2.1 (or 5.1) computer speaker system. You can get something pretty decent for not too much money.

Hi there,

I have the standard docking station for my Lenovo Thinkpad T440s and I'm wondering if it's possible to output sound from both the built-in headphone jack on the laptop itself AND the headphone jack on the back of the docking station. Ideally as individual playback devices in the Win7 settings so I can assign programs to each one.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Cheers,
Walker

Edit: Forgot to mention, my laptop came installed with Realtek HD Audio Manager but I haven't found it helpful in regards to my question above.

A:Using laptop and dock outputs simultaneously

The setting is really in the playback sound properties (right click on the speaker icon). But there you can only assign 1 output device as default.

I'm sorry to say that, form my own experience this is impossible to achieve for free without corrupting your own Audio drivers and by the sounds of it that won't even work in this case!

It is also near impossible to achieve if you pay for it unless you buy some really specialist, expensive software and special extra hardware!

Sorry for dashing your hope but there still is a chance that someone will come up with a great solution to this I've never seen before (although very unlikely ).

I have a computer i built first one in a long time and its been about 5 years since i have windows. I have the issue that if i boot up it will play audio over hdmi to my tv i have hooked up fine but when i plug in headphone to front jack they work fine. when i unplug my headphones it wont play over hdmi it says there is no devices attached. but i rebot with hdmi plugged in and its fine .

A:Audio over hdmi until i plug in earphones an unplug them.

What Video do you have? You show "Intel" but there are no Intel video cards. There is Intel video built into some CPU's, which I assume is what you have.

What sound driver do you have for the PC? It looks like the built in audio on that motherboard is VIA. If you do not have the correct VIA driver (e.g. only the generic basic function Windows installed HD Audio Codec), get the driver from MSI. As MSI does not list Windows 8 drivers, the Win 7 will work for Windows 8, but may not work correctly for Windows 8.1. This may or may not correct the problem, but its important to have the correct sound driver, with the jack detection.

The HDMI, if an HDMI cable is attached normally automatically switches to the HDMI audio output and sets itself as the default audio playback device. Plugging in a headphone, if it changes the audio playback to the headphones instead of HDMI, should automatically change back to HDMI. But, if it does not, manually setting the HDMI as the Default Playback device, in the Sound Panel, should take care of it, rather than having to reboot.

I am considering buying an HDMI splitter to get around a problem I now have when streaming music only from the Internet. Currently I have about a 15 ft. cable running from the HDMI output on my computer to my Samsung TV. With this setup everything works fine. I can watch Youtube videos or Netflix movies. The thing that I don't like is that if I want to just stream music for several hours, I have to leave the TV on since the audio connection from the TV to my receiver is not a pass thru. It is only live when the TV is on. I am wondering if I can use an HDMI splitter to solve this problem. What I plan to do is to connect the computer HDMI output to the input on the splitter. Then use one of the splitter's outputs to go to the Samsung TV and the other one to go to my receiver via an HDMI-to-2 Channel Stereo Y-adapter. Just wondering if the connection to the non-HDMI device via the Y-adapter will upset the functioning of the splitter. What about the the EDID handshaking and HDCP signal that HDMI sources and displays need in order to function?

Allow me to set the stage; I have a PC with a dual monitor setup, Primary has built in speakers and HDMI, secondary monitor is just DVI/VGA. My HDTV on the other side of the room also has HDMI. I want to be able to have all of these connected and run without swapping cables around.

This scenario is pretty easy with one slight complication. While both HDMI capable devices are plugged in I can only ever get sound out of the one that is hooked up via straight HDMI. Without any extensive software to allow me to put sound through 2 outputs at once I'm aware that normal 'default sound device' switching is necessary. I'm ok with that.

Here's my setup;

AMD 6Core 1090T CPU

Toshiba Regza 32"

I currently have the NEC connect to a DVI port, The samsung is connected to the HDMI, and the Toshiba is connected to a Mini DP port via "startech MiniDP to HDMI Active adapter" (backstory: tried to purchase AMD verified, no one had it in stock that didnt want $30 dollars to ship a <1/2lb item)

A:Any video cards with 4 HDMI outputs?

No video cards I know of have 4 HDMI outputs, but you can find plenty of cards that have that many if you combine DVI + Displayport. You could always use DP converters to HDMI got get the appropriate number of connections, but remember that after 2 non DP devices you'll need to start using Active Converters if you plan to keep the signal digital.

Hi. I have 2 W7 machines, and only one will play the LPCM 16 bit, 2ch audio from a camcorder. Both machines have realtek HD audio.

The machine that plays it has optical audio out to a receiver. The machine that cannot play the audio has analog outputs to a logitech speaker system.

Should LPCM audio be processed by realtek and sent to analog outputs? Am I doing something wrong?

A:Can LPCM audio play to audio card analog outputs?

Both should play. How the sound card routes the audio output doesn't matter. Its just based on the input to the sound card.

Check the Sound Panel/Recording section. Set the one that doesn't play the same as the one that does (if they are different).

Generally, Stereo Mix should be set as the default Recording device. Then whatever input has sound will be heard.

Sorry if this is a stupid question lol.

A:Can I run sound through hdmi and rear jack simultaneously?

Windows only allows one "default audio playback device" (HDMI OR Speakers). Thus if you have an HDMI cable connected it will (in most cases) automatically default to the HDMI. If the HDMI is unplugged it will default back to the "Speakers" (your sound card).

Otherwise, if you have HDMI connected you must manually switch the playback to the Speakers.

There was a 3rd party software program that would allow both in Windows XP. I don't think its compatible with Windows 7 (or Vista or Windows 8) as some of the audio functions are handled differently than XP.

I use an HDMI cable to connect my PC to my TV to watch TV shows. I would like to separate and choose what program audio comes from which device. I would like, say for example, Garry's Mod to come from my PC speakers while Windows Media Player comes though my TV speakers. When I go to start>search> sound (as seen in screenshot), I can only choose one to set as default device. Then chosen device plays both programs' audio.

I know it's possible by some means because Skype does this on it's own. When my default device is my TV, even if it's playing sound, talking to someone on Skype always comes through my PC.

Any help would be appreciated

A:How can I use 2 audio outputs at once?

Unless you have a special application, such as Skype, you can't have two. Windows will only allow one default audio playback device, e.g. "Speakers" or "HDMI" but not both and audio applications will use the default audio playback device. The Skype application (owned by Microsoft) apparently has the software needed to do that.

This question, or a similar question, comes up frequently. Always the same answer.

On this setup the sound comes out of my Widescreen TV with no issues because I use the HDMI output on my GFX card.

The issue is if my wife wants to use anything that requires audio like youtube, the sound outputs to the TV speakers.

Is there anyway I can separate the audio outputs, i.e. output video to HDMI and output firefox to soundcard/earphones?

Thanks

A:One PC, Two monitors. Two Audio outputs possible?

Ugh, if you have two different sound cards, can do mixing, etc

Recently I purchased a new headset.
It connects to the computer through two 3,5mm jacks, a mic out and a sound in. (Never buying anything without USB again...)

My regular speakers are also connected through a 3,5mm jack.
I've attempted to keep my speakers plugged in the rear and my two headset cables in the front, but the sound out simply switches from rear to front.
What I need is two different outputs, one for my speakers and one for my headset (TeamSpeak usage).

So far as I've searched and tried it seems only possible through the Realtek HD Audio Manager.
Here's the kicker: I have an NVidia soundcard, and after 2 hours of rebooting, re-installing and browsing countless threads, I've come to the conclusion that I am completely and utterly UNABLE to install the Realtek HD Audio Manager.

So what I'm looking for:
a) Some way to get Realtek HD Audio Manager installed successfully.
b) Some way to get two unique audio outputs from one (on-board) soundcard.

A:Cannot get two audio outputs from one soundcard

The answer to b) above is to use a two way adapter like this:

Background:
im using vista and bought a usb headset quite happy with it but can i have audio through my speakers via line out from the same programs?

It looks like the ability to do so is built into vista in the sound mixing panel accessible through the volume systray icon but i cant work out how to move the sound outputs from each program between devices.

Any idea if its possible to:
a move a program's output between devices and
b use multiple outputs for single progs

if so how?

thanks in advance

I've been having a problem lately where I can't have multiple audio outputs plugged in at the same time and both work. For example, I would like to have both my headset and my speakers plugged in and switch between the two when needed. But for some reason I can only use one at a time by unplugging one and plugging the other in. I've looked through all the drivers and everything is up to date, but I still can't find the reason behind this. Has anyone else ever had a problem like this?

I need some help, a few hours ago (about 4 from time of this post), my sound from my HyperX Cloud 2's stopped working.I got up to turn the light off, when I was doing that it cut. I started fiddling about the USB cable to try and make it work, but nothing changed. I started to switch to my front usb ports and still nothing unless held. I tried with my Trittons, apple earbuds, and speakers. All of which have a deep deep bass and barely any high notes. I tried just using my jack and skip the USB adapter, and it worked, only when sitting in a specific location. I am not sure if it is a case problem or motherboard problem or USB adapter or headphone problem in general. I am gearing towards the case since none of the audio outputs worked correctly but I would gladly appreciate if someone could help me out.
Also, whenever I plug in the USB to my headphones I get the message at the bottom right saying USB was unable to be recognized. I have had this build for a bit over a year now and I am trying to contact HyperX about the headphones, If it isn't the headphones then I have a case in my mind that I would switch to.

I have a thinkpad t470s and I'd like to use two different audio output: 1. my headphones via audio jack (listening to music)2. an external speaker (using short sound clips which I'd like to play while listening music on my headphones) I cannot use bluetooth (deactivated by my employer), and I want to use different audio channels on both. Is it possible at all? If yes, how can I manage it?

A:getting audio out of multiple outputs?

I take it that you have your digital audio out for your surround sound and minijack out for your speakers, right? Other than a splitter at the source, I'm unsure of any other way to specify dual outputs.

Are you using an aftermarket sound card (turtle beach, soundblaster, etc) or is this onboard sound?

Hi there,

first i'll give ye the spiel about my laptop audio setup

I spilled a pint of vodka and blackcurrant all over the keyboard a few years ago, all this has damaged is how my speakers work (despite the wireless card and under the keyboard being covered in sticky sugar crystals)

(a) the two embedded speakers emit faint crackling when music is played at max volume.
(b)the embedded subwoofer works fine
(c) the headphone socket only works when a jack is inserted halfway in a very particular manner (giving audio to one desktop speaker only)

I've been using cheap "Trust SP 2750p" stereo usb speakers for the last few months (not interested in spending money on a proper external soundcard setup)

My question is: Can I configure windows or some application to allow audio playback through the usb speakers and the laptop speakers simultaneously? The internal subwoofer is pretty powerful and should sound quite nice combined with the usb speakers at reasonable volumes.

I've tried googling this but to no avail

Realtek AC97 soundcard, Acer 2003 wlmi,

TL;DR version:

Is there a windows xp config or software available that'll allow me to play audio through my usb speakers and internal laptop speakers simultaneously?

many many thanks if you can help me out
will
 

A:Play audio through two audio devices simultaneously?

First thing you should do is clean the sugar and gunk off the inside. I can't believe the keyboard still works

How do I remove the big green battery and the plug icon? It looks quite ugly and unneccessary. There is already a plug-over-battery icon serving the purpose of identifying battery level and charging status...

A:How do I remove the big green battery and the plug...

I suppose you're talking about Power Manager, while terming it ugly is subjective but it's not unnecessary at all. It tells you information regarding things the LED indicator nor Windows power manager can. Still if you're not convinced, then you can uninstall it from the Add/Remove programs.

I have my monitor (vga) and my tv (hdmi) hooked up to my desktop computer. When I listen to music I have it open on my monitor and the sound comes through the bookshelf speakers I have connected via the audio jack. However when I want to watch a video, I watch on the TV and I want the sound to be coming from the tv. Currently I go into the volume settings and change the default playback device. Is there anyway to do this automatically?

A:Dual monitors, different audio outputs?

Short answer, NO. Windows will only allow one default audio playback device, such as "Speakers" or "HDMI", but not both.

So i want to have a different output for 2 Programs. Problem: Both have not an option to change the audio device. One is: WiMP. Second is: World of Tanks. I want my Game to go to my Speakers (example) and my Music to my Headset (example). Though, none can be configured. So i looked up a bit, and found ALOT of programs that can do this. Though: None work for Windows 8. I found for example: Virtual Audio Cable or some others. None works for Windows 8. If you know a program that can assign Audio to a special Output for Windows 8, please tell me. Thanks

Hey, I know this is a topic that must have came up so many times, but after trying several methods on Google, I've had no luck.

So yeh, I'm wanting to have 2 separate audio outputs. So I first had an output coming from the motherboard. I then added a sound card as I beleived this would allow me a second audio output. Now however, I can only get sound from the sound card. To test I have speakers plugged into the sound card & headphones into the motherboard.

Some (possibly) useful system info:
Windows 7 Pro (64 bit)
ASRock 880G Extreme3 (Socket AM3) DDR3 PCI-Express Motherboard
Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Fatal1ty Xtreme Gamer Sound Card

Please tell me if any more info is required, thanks!

A:2 audio outputs? Help with sound card

As far as I know windows can only use one device at a time so the only thing that you can do would be to change the default device when you want to switch.
