Using Hybrid dock - how to select which screen to output audio

2020-09-11, 0:31 AM

Hi,

 

I'm using a P53 mobile workstation connected to a Hybrid USB-C With USB-A dock (https://www.lenovo.com/au/en/accessories-and-monitors/docking/universal-cable-docks-usb/TP-Hybrid-USB-C-Dock-%C2%A0-ANZ/p/40AF0135AU). I have 2 screens connected to the dock with HDMI, both of the screens have inbuilt speakers in them. One of the screens has external speakers attached to the headphone jack too, this is the screen that i would like audio sent to. At the moment the audio keeps being sent to the other screen that only has inbuilt speakers.

 

Is there a way to choose which screen the audio is connected to? 

within windows there is only a sound output option for "Lenovo USB Audio". 

 

Things i have tried so far:

-Swapping the position of the cables connected to the dock

-Changing the main display

-Changing the order that the displays are connected to the dock

 

 

Thanks,

Nick

Hello,

 

I do not have a ThinkPad P53 myself, but on other models running Windows 10, I can click on the Speaker icon in the system tray navigation area to bring up a volume dialog, and at the top of the dialog is the currently-selected playback device.  Clicking on that lets me select a different one.
