Win10 'Default Device' Audio Issues

I have 2 TVs hooked through my GTX 970 video card, one (a Sony TV) via DVI cable and another (a Samsung TV) through HDMI. If/when I desire to play the audio from my PC through one of these two, I could (on Win7) go to Playback Devices and simply set one or the other as my Default Device. Now, since I've upgraded to Windows 10, I have 2 separate issues:

- I have the Samsung set as the Default, but the audio is coming from the Sony TV.

- When I swap the Default Device to the Sony TV, there is no audio from either TV.

I've only started having this issue since I swapped to Win10. Does anyone have any suggestions on what the issue(s) is, and/or, any help to offer up for a solution?

I don't how your setup is but...

with sound, the issue is most likely W10, driver problem. hope you can find a driver for it. Good luck. On my computers I use a $5 USB audio adapter, not ideal but give me sound.

While there is some debate

DVI is often no audio. You find this in the TV docs and more. I've had some luck by using a 2 buck DVI to HDMI adapter to use the HDMI ports and get sound from many sound cards.

But after your upgrade to W10 I find a lot of folk skip driver updates. Nothing has changed in 2 decades here. We have to check out the makers for drivers for W10.
