Default Sound through Audio port and hdmi

Hey guys,

I have speakers plugged into my tv so it can have the sound from my two consoles and pc, and then I have my heaphones plugged into the back audio port on my computer for when I want to listen to stuff quietly or whatever!

But is there a way to enable the HDMI and Audio port to both play at the same time? Its annoying having to switch them in the settings each time I want to use one or the other, especially if I'm listening to my headphones and then want to show someone, I would love to just hit the power button on my speakers and have what I am listening to on my Headphones start playing as well!

I ended up using a bit of a jery rig. I have a Turtle Beach DSS sound processor. I rigged that to go through my tv's digital audio. from there I have it come out into a splitter to both my headphones and speakers. So I have everything go to the tv and then get routed through to the other devices
