I am using windows 7 and here is my question :

Is there a way for windows to swtich my audio output to HDMI automatically when a HDMI cable is plugged in ? Right now, to switch the audio output I need to go specify my default output to HDMI everytime I plug it in and set it back to speakers once I plug it out.

Cheers !

One thing you might want to check is, if your graphics card even outputs sound through the HDMI port. I've heard of issues where the HDMI port only outputs video or that you have to connect an audio cable to the card to get sound through the HDMI port.
