Windows 7: How to play different audio from two separate devices

How to play different audio from two separate devices

I like to play different games, and stream movies or shows at the same time on my TV which is hooked up. I recently upgraded my comp to a full custom build (z77 sabertooth, i5-3570k, 16GB ram, Windows 7 Professional 64 bit) and can't figure out how to set my audio playback devices to play separately. On my previous comp, which had Windows Vista Home Premium, whenever I changed the default playback whatever audio was playing already would stay on the devices it was playing on and whatever new windows I opened would play on the new default device. I've looked and looked but can't find any options similar to this.

So my question is thus: How can I set my comp so that I can play one audio through my tv and separate audio through speakers?

sounds like you need two soundcards, you can get a small usb soundcard for just a few pounds from amazon. i use one when i use virtualdj, not sure it would work for your requirements but worth having a research into it.

Amazon.co.uk: usb sound card

A USB soundcard wont work though, I'm not using a headset, normal speakers and then my tv which is on an hdmi port.
