  1. Why are is there no way to use more then two audio outputs?


    I have 3 speakers and a HDMI. I thought it would be super easy use them all... I was wrong. I am only able to use one speaker at a time and maybe a work around for speakers and headphones at the same time. This would not be a problem on a Mac. Why is Windows behind on this basic software?

  2. No Audio Output Device is Installed

    Hi,

    You will need to select Windows 8 from the drop down list while installing the driver in compatibility mode.

    I would suggest you to try setting the speaker as default audio output by following the steps below and check if it helps.

    1. Right click on the sound icon on the right bottom corner of the taskbar.

    2. Select "playback devices".

    3. If "speaker" is not set as the default device, highlight it and click "set as default".

    5. Save the changes.

    Let us know the result.
