Automatic switch between Playback Devices

Hey,

Not really sure about this one. Im struggling with automatic playback on devices. For example,

1) Headphones - I plug my phones in, and sound still comes from my PC (Before, it automaticlly switched to headphones)

2) HDMI - When I plug my HDMI cable, the same problem.

I have to manually choose what Playback Device too use. Should it be like this?

Hi, maybe right click your mice on the iconed volume control in the taskbar =>options=> check the box all playback devices. And let uncheck the playback devices list that had appeared.

So, all your devices will appear and will switch on an automatic mode...

If you set the headphone to be the Default Device when you unplug them it should revert to the speakers and when you plug them back in it will go to the headphones. I just got a new pair of Logitech G35 headphones and doing that works for them.
