  2. How do I output audio concurrently to both my TV and my new headphones?

    Alright, I have a potentially sticky question. Just as the question above states, how do I get two audio devices outputting at the same time? I have already read answers like this one:

    Output audio to multiple devices in Windows 10

    For whatever reason, this does not work for me. I believe it doesn't work for me because I don't actually use speakers: I use a TV as both monitor and speakers. Therefore, the "Speakers" option doesn't actually connect to my usual audio output.

    When I try the solution I linked above, I can only ever hear audio either through my TV or through my headphones, but not both. Furthermore, the audio is quieter compared to just letting it play normally, so the 'solution' linked above gives me one weakened
    audio source instead of the two normal-sounding it promises!

    How do I get the top two devices, my Razor Kraken and my TV, to output audio at the same time?

  3. My Windows Audio is a Mess

    Hi there Punchcard, I will be your Independent Advisor for today, I hope we can both resolve your problem.

    What I would suggest for now is to completely remove the Audio drivers listed in the Device Manager. Please make sure you remove all listed under Sound and audio devices.

    Here is how to do it.

    Here the steps to completely remove a Device off your computer.

    Step 1. Use shortcut keys Win + X on Windows 10.

    Step 2. Select Device Manager.

    Step 3. Expand the entry Sound and Audio. Right-click the problematic device and select Uninstall device.

    Step 4. You may need to check the option Delete the driver software for this device, and then click the Uninstall button.

    Step 5. Reboot the computer.

    And then please see if there are any improvements.

    Sound issues after connecting my TV to my PC using HDMI cable

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    I would suggest you to refer to the mentioned steps and se if it works:

    • Connect your Laptop to the TV and turn everything on
    • Right click on the speaker icon, on the task bar.
    • Choose Playback Devices. (You will need to be connected to your TV first to see it listed here).
    • Click the Properties Button with the TV highlighted in the list
    • Click the "Advanced" tab
    • Here you can set the default format for audio playback.


    • By default this will be set to the highest quality . You can try each level and use the "Test" button to see if it works.

      Hope this helps.
