Assign applications to multiple sound devices

Hello.
Sometimes I watch movies using HDMI output from my computer. When I connect the HDMI cable windows also discovers new sound device. I want to redirect some of outputs to the television so I can use its speakers.
For now, what I do is that I disable the internal sound card and system automatically uses HDMI then.
Thank you for any help

In many systems, when you plug an HDMI cable into the PC Windows will automatically set the HDMI as the Default audio playback device. If Windows is detecting a new device it suggests the Video drivers (usually where the HDMI audio is generated) may not be the correct driver.
