I have donated to FX Sound as I think it a decent program and helps the poor audio coming directly from my laptop.
Because my laptop is connected to a stand-alone monitor via HDMI cable, the monitor now has sound capability (which I don’t need or want). I set my setting to “Headset out” and everything is fine. Then the laptop goes to sleep and the next time I play any sound FX Sound switches automatically to the monitor’s speaker (which sounds like crap).
I want to set FX sound to recognize the headset out port on my laptop and nothing else. How can I make it happen and get it to stop switching devices?
We’ve seen this problem before, see thread linked below.
But user @TiM has proposed the most elegant solution so far: simply disable the monitor in your Windows sound settings.
Elsewise, have you tried disabling automatic switching in [EDIT: FxSound’s] Settings menu?
Here to help,
If the selected playback device is disconnected on standby/resume, then FxSound will not switch the output. If the same device is connected back, then playback will resume on that device. Otherwise, to change the output choose a different playback device in FxSound.
