    Volume goes higher with 2 audio sources.

    Hey everyone,
    so here I am on my lenovo ultrabook and I have this really annoying sound problem.

    Let's say I'm watching a stream on - audio source #1.
    I turn on Spotify/VLC/whatever and start some music - audio source #2.
    I turn off the first audio source and the second automatically gets its volume doubled.

    This is really annoying and it's happening every time I have two audio sources running at the same time and I shut one down... Some sort of intelligent sound system, which I can't figure out how to turn off. I've tried multiple solutions - updating audio drives, ticking the "Do Nothing" in Communications tab in Sound. None of that helped. Please help me
    Thanks a lot!

Windows 8 Two Audio Sources
Hi, I was wondering how I would go about setting up two audio sources at once. I was hoping to use both my internal speakers as well as a Bluetooth connected HDMX Jambox. I know at the very least Windows 8 will output audio to both of the devices at once, as it will let me "Test" one or the other...
