Under playback devices I have AMD HDMI sound and Realtek High Definition audio. Both devices work when I check them - just cant get them both to work at the same time?? Help!
Exactly why do you need it to be this way?

You could plug in a headphone set to whatever's plugged into the HDMI output (I'm guessing a TV), or you could simply stay with the Realtek sound device and connect your PC to an amplifier with speakers, and again use the headphone jack on the amplifier at the same time.

I don't really think you have to have both audio devices enabled at the same time.

Thanks for all the replies...
The hdmi goes to my reciever/tv in a different room, the stereo jack goes to my computer speakers. Want to be able to play the same sound in both rooms at the same time...

MS Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit (Family Pack Lic.) Upgrade

does your HDTV have surround sound speakers or do you use the built in factory speakers? or maybe jst 2.1 surround?

Does you HDTV have a 1/8" (3.5mm) phono jack input and/or output? (that is like a headphones plug hole like the ones on the back of computers for the basic speakers or mic)
