    Hi,
    When I connect my laptop to TV through HDMI cable, I get both video and audio from it to play on TV. And if I connect speakers to the headphones output I can't hear sound in speakers, the HDMI audio is still playing on TV. Is it possible somehow to disable the audio on HDMI so only the video will pass? Or maybe to make the sound from headphones output to play audio as well? Any possible solution?
    Thanks.

    I would think right clicking the speaker icon and selecting playback devices might give you an option to make the speakers the default device.

    If not that, do you have another mixer application?

    If not that, anything in the system bios to change output type?

    I will try it next time, when HDMI and speakers both connected, to see which playback device is default, thanks.

    Not sure what you mean by "another mixer application", maybe example?

    Really don't want to touch anything in BIOS.

    My system has a Realtek Mixing panel installed. They seem to overlap in most instances, but perhaps there could be an additional option. You may not have one.

    Oh, I see. I think I do have realtek driver for sound, not sure I ever saw the panel. I'll check that too.
