Windows 7: Video overlay AND sound issue

Video overlay AND sound issue

I just setup my Win7 machine with a ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT and installed latest ATI CCC driver. First off all I can't get video overlay to work (I want to output a movie full screen to the secondary display while working on the primary display). As an alternative I expected that I could just move WMP (or VLC) to the secondary screen and start the movie there. The issue here is that sound is still on the primary display only. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Do your displays have speakers built into them in which you use? If this is the case, this is the reason why your sound is on the first display... your computer is just sending sound to whatever is connected to it; in this case it's your primary display.

Yes, speakers on both displays. In CP/Sound there is only one ATI HDMI Output device (but there is two HDMI channels, I can get sound out of both of them in a
single display setup). How can I control where sound should be outputed?
