    bluetooth + hdmi simultaneously


    Hi all.My tv unit does not have an audio out at all.I have my pc hooked up to tv set via hdmi.now the thing is ,i consider buing a soundbar but the only way to make it work is to connect it via bluetooth pc+soundbar.But doing so ,hdmi does not let any sound go to my tv unit.Not sure if it makes any sense to you guys but basicly what I want to achieve is to have sound comming from my bluetooth and tv(hdmi) simultaneously all together at the same time .thanks for any help at all.

    Windows will only allow one default audio playback device. e.g. HDMI, Speakers, Bluetooth, etc. You can't have both. If you had an HDMI splitter and an external soundbar that takes an HDMI input that might work.

    Even if you did get it to work the two sound sources would most likely be out of sync and sound terrible. This happens because the processing steps are different for BT vs HDMI.
