    I'm using my 4870 to send video and audio to my reciever to watch movies and such on my tv from my computer (through HDMI).

    What I'm wondering is can I make windows media player be the only device that uses the video card sound?

    What I would like to do is be able to have a movie playing (on my tv from the computer) and have the sound go through my speakers. Then be able to do everything else (games, music, etc) using my sound card.

    Any ideas?
