I have three monitors which are not always on when I use the computer. Each of the monitors also has it's own speaker system. They all use DP cable to connect them to the computer via nVidia GFX card.
I have a dedicated sound card which I use for all of my outbound audio. I've set it as default device and default communications device on the playback tab of the sound option in the control panel.
However, each time I turn on one of the monitors, all of my sound gets redirected to that monitor, despite the fact I've previously disabled this audio device and set another as the default.
How do I tell Windows 10 to stop being a smartass and just do what I told it to do?
I want my audio to go to a device I specified, no matter how many other audio devices I connect to my computer, until the moment where I myself change these settings.
