Hey again guys. Haven't been here in a while, but seems my computer is giving me another issue that Bleeping Computer may be able to help with, because Kioskea sure couldn't (or rather, did not even try).
I've gotten an HDMI (I think that is right) for my laptop to connect to my 32' inch TV so I could use it as a secondary monitor. The problem seems to be that I can not always get the sound to work on the TV (it plays on my laptop instead) when I play things like videos, streams and games on the TV, but every so often the sound shows up there. I can not seem to control this at all, it just happens, and does not happen reliably.
I have tried adjusting my audio options under my Control Panel, but that only allows me to either set which device I wish to use as the primary sound system, or to change a device to being a communication set up. But I have had the sound some times play on the TV for an application that is on the TV, while sound will come through my computer for applications on that monitor.
I am wondering if there is a way I can make this happen when I want it to, so that I can have better sound when watching things like youtube videos or playing my computer games there, but don't have other programs being overly loud by keeping them on the laptop.
If any one can please help, it would be appreciated,
