Windows 7: Is there anyway I can make speakers switch to default automatically?

Is there anyway I can make speakers switch to default automatically?


I just got Warpia Stream HD VE edition,

I got it set up and everything, but I was wondering if I could make it so when it's showing on my TV, it automatically switches over to the TV sound.

And when I turn it off, if it could automatically go back to the computers speakers.

Is there anyway I could do this?

Thank you:)

In many systems, the automatic selection is controlled by whether the HDMI cable is plugged in or not.

In my PC, the "speakers" are set as the Default playback device. I have a Radeon HD4850 video card and if I plug in an HDMI cable the HDMI automatically sets itself as the default playback device. If I unplug the HDMI cable it reverts back to the speakers. I also use this for my recording studio PC and if I have my USB connected recording interface device powered on (and connected) that is automatically set as the default playback device. When I power off the recording device it reverts back to the speakers.
