Hello,

Thanks,

What are you trying to do that requires separate audio outputs? How many separate outputs do you need?



Some programs have an option to change the audio device it outputs to. Both Windows Media play and Winamp have this ability, for example. If the program doesn't have the ability to change the output device, then you're stuck with the default.

Windows 7 has two separate default audio devices: default audio, and default communication., which you can set to be different from each other. I think the program has have the ability to use the default communication device though.

I'm trying to run two different audio sources, one streaming video from the web and another from VLC, and have the audio from the stream go out one port to an FM transmitter and the other one go to the normal speakers via the TV.  I currently need two computers to accomplish this and would like to consolodate,

How is the PC connected to the TV? HDMI, or VGA and audio cable?

VLC lets you choose the output device:

I also found a program called IndieVolume that may work:

You would have to set VLC each time in different instances and I was actually using a plugin for Firefox, so that didn't do it, but the software package claims to do just what I needed.  I'll give it a try.

The software claims to do the job, but I have not tried it.
