Windows 7: Change default speaker in Media Center ?

Change default speaker in Media Center ?

Hello all

This Week-End I found that we can change the default speaker output in the new Media Player.
For me this is a great improvement because I use 2 sound cards in my desktop. The onboard chip for my desktop speaker with all "windows sound" is the default one, and a Creative Audigy for music listening connected to my HiFi (for now I used Winamp).
The fact that WMP allow to change default speaker is really great, but the perfect thing would be to make the same to Media Center.
I searched a lot of time under Vista without succes, and today I hope that the Media Center will follow the same way that WMP.
But at this time I didn't find anything on MC. I thought that WMP and MC was connected in a sens, but It seems not.

So my question is simple: Is there anyone who know if we could change this settings into Media Center ? (Even with a registry edit)

I've got an article on using ffdshow audio in Media Center that will do what you want but it is slightly complicated. You can follow the guide here: Hacking Windows7 MediaCenter: Using FFDShow Audio in Media Center

Then at the end of the article is a link to another guide on setting up speakers in ffdshow: Hacking Windows7 MediaCenter: Simple FFDShow Audio Settings

It's a little more complicated to get setup than just a regedit or a media center setting but its what I use and I couldnt be happier.
