this is me being a win10 dummy probably... my tv setup is very simple. i have all my media stored on my desktop. previously, i used a raspberry pi with kodi on it. networked with powerline ethernet and the pi plays my stuff. now i have moved the tv so that it's not that far away from my desktop....about 15'. it's behind me against a wall, so viewing it from my monitor is absolutely horrid. i like to simplify things so i got a big HDMI cable off amazon and hooked it up expecting to easily play my media. so far it's more of an annoyance than anything so before i switch back to using the pi, maybe someone can give me a hand? the TV is hooked into my gtx970. audio over the HDMI of course. my desktop is a 24" on DVI (hey its old) and a set of logitech speakers (equally as old, i'm cheap) connected to the onboard audio. i don't always want to watch stuff on my tv. there are times when i'd rather use my monitor. so i noticed that win10 doesn't want to use more than one output for audio. i have to tell it to use either the onboard sound or the HDMI on the video card. sure, i can set it per program but that's not very helpful for the above reason. i'm using VLC for both. i tried enabling stereo mix as described here: https://windowsreport.com/play-sound-2-devices-windows-10/ but that didn't seem to do anything at all. second, win10 treats my tv as a second monitor. since i want to use it just for media, this is kind of annoying. i can't use it as a second monitor nor would i want to given the size difference. as of now, i have to start up the file on my 24" and then mouse move it over to the TV and tell it to fullscreen. i remember years ago with win98, i had a TV on the TV out for just this purpose. when i would start a video file, it automatically played it full screen and nothing else on the TV. in short, it was awesome. i think it was called 'theater mode'. can't remember if it was part of the video card driver or not. any thoughts? thanks.
