  1. Hello,
    I'm hard of hearing and our TV sound isn't the greatest, so I struggle to hear what's being said when watching shows. I enjoy using headphones, but that only works when I'm not watching with my wife.

    I use my laptop with HDMI output to the TV. It seems I can choose to either run sound through the headphones or the HDMI cable, but not both. Is there any way to run both sound outputs simultaneously?

    I have WIndows 7 with smart audio...

    Thanks!

    Ok normally this depends on the sound driver. Try downloading the latest driver for you laptop and check if it works, if not come back.
