Hi all, I'm hoping you can all help me with this one because I'm struggling to find any solution!

I have an AMD 6870 which is in a media/gaming PC - I've just installed the latest drivers.

Basically I have a PC monitor running through the primary HDMI output and a secondary HDTV running through the mini display port of which I've checked all the cables support audio. Now the audio driver is working fine but I cannot get sound out of the secondary monitor ONLY out of the speakers within my primary monitor which I don't need at all.

Does anyone know how to get the audio to be output to my secondary TV (minidisplay port) if possible?

Thanks!

All I can say is try setting that as your default playback device in Windows.

I tried putting it as default which only put sound through the speakers on my primary monitor as it has them, not sure of any other solution.

Just to let you all know this problem has been solved by buying a DVI-DVI cable for my primary monitor and then using HDMI for the HDTV.
