i have a Dell studio 1749 running windows 7 ultimate. i have my tv hooked in through hdmi. is there a way to get sound to the tv while still having sound on the laptop speakers? right now i have to set either the laptop speaker or the tv to default sound device, and sound from say a movie will come out from only the default sound device. on my old computer i had a separate sound card with digital out. so i could have sound going to my tv and sound through the onboard card going at the same time. it is way more convenient to just mute or turn off a speaker or tv than to have to constantly be switching to a default device. is there any way to do this?

::edit::
just to add, the hdmi audio is coming from the video card. so it is similar to my old situation where i do have 2 separate audio outputs. its not all coming from one sound source.

In Windows, it depends on the program. Most programs are just set to use the default output sound device and nothing else. So if you want to change where the sound goes, you have to change the default device.

Some programs, however, will let you choose the output device. There might be a way around this if the program doesn't, but I'm not aware of it. :(
