hi there I have currently just bought a new pc and having a few problems with my turtle beach x12 gaming headset.

On my previous pc it only supported VGA and my turtle beach worked a treat.

However, now that this pc supports HDMI I want to use this feature, however my turtle beach wont transmit sound through the headset, just through the HDMI itself. The mic works perfectly may I add.

I put a VGA cable in to test and my turtle beach work perfectly but I really want to use the HDMI

I am running windows 8 and my pc wont pick up that the audio jack is even plugged in.

Any tips or diagnostic would be amazing, thanks a bunch, Nathan.

My System

Windows will only output audio from a single device. So you have to decide which you want to use.

I don't really see the issue. If you want to output to speakers, use HDMI. If you are using the headset, switch to the headset. You simply need to change the default output device in the sound setup.

HDMI no sound from tv
Hi, I plugged in the HDMI, but I can't get the sound to come out of the tv. I used to be able to do that but I don't know why it won't work all of a sudden. The sound only comes out of the laptop. When I plug in a sound jack from the laptop to the tv like I do for an avi cable, it has no sounds...
