Playback is piped to HDMI monitor when PC settings is on speakers

Post by kkong » Sun May 09, 2021 4:08 pm

I am using 3.0.2 on a Windows 10 laptop.

It worked properly when I first ran it. But now, audio playback will route audio output to my connected HDMI monitor, even though my PC audio settings have the built-in speakers as the default playback device.

I can't find any setting in Audacity to route where audio output goes. Is this problem just a setting up issue?

Ensure that you have the appropriate playback device selected in the Device Toolbar.
