I have two monitors (ASUS VH238-C) and I am trying to get sound to play through both of them.
The current setup is as follows:
- Main monitor is connected through HDMI.
- Second monitor is connected through DVI.
If I set the main monitor up to play through the HDMI audio and use the recording stereo mixer trick to push the audio to the 2nd monitor, there is a delay that makes it too annoying to setup like this.
Instead, I am trying to make both monitors use their audio port to play the audio. However, with the main monitor, it refuses to accept audio from the audio jack while using HDMI for the video output.
Am I overlooking something simple? I cannot figure out what is preventing the main monitor from outputting the audio. I am 100% sure the cable and port are fine as, if I plug in my headphones, I can hear the audio fine. If I plug the cable into the 2nd monitor it works fine, just not to the main monitor.
To clarify, I am not looking to output audio from the monitors audio out jack!
I want to use the monitors speakers via the audio in jacks!
