Okay, for some reason when I launch a game (Saints Row 4, SC:Blacklist, Dead Island Riptide, & a few others) it will display the game on my TV just fine via HDMI, but the sound will come out of the laptop speakers, instead of the TV.I've already got the HDMI sound set to default when it's plugged up.Also a few games like Blacklist being one, will play certain sounds from the laptop speakers (like when Grim is talking through the com), and the rest (gun fire, BG noise, etc...) will play through the TV....

All other audio I play such as music from itunes, movies, web based content, etc. play just fine......

What's up with this?

Try and disable your laptop speakers in the sound control panel.

That worked!But is there no way around this? I may forget one time after a long gameplay session that I disabled it & think something else is wrong lol

Make sure your speakers are set to stereo.

Don't be an idiot and you probably won't forget. This is a common thing to do when dealing with multiple audio devices. You have to change the device to the one you want. It really doesn't get any more simpler than that.

It doesn't take an "idiot" to forget something, btw thanks for knowing how my brain works, I may be smart, but my memory is **** at times, and thats not something I can't help.I can literally forget something I was going to say or do at times within seconds of thinking it.Thanks for diminishing myself as a human being ;)

A simple "nope there's unfortunately no way around this" would have sufficed......

My laptop does the same thing, it's quite annoying. Unfortunately there isn't a way around it. You need to do it every time you hook in the HDMI (unless you just leave the laptop hooked in, then it should save it).
