    Hi folks,

    I got this problem. I am running Win7 64bit via Bootcamp on my MacPro 12core late 2010 with ATI 5870 GPU and I have the problem that only one of the 2 Monitors I have connected emits sound. Does anybody have a clue how to enable sound on the second Monitor?

    Cheers,
    the mysterious toadman

    Unless I'm mistaken, you can only have 1 of the ACDs "extras" working, ie you can't have both webcams, mics or speakers working concurrently. You can change which one you want as default under control panel.

    uh damnit! that sucks bigtime! it would be a much richter experience to have sound coming from both displays.. i can switch which one i want to use but there must be a way to somehow use both of them. does anybody have an idea?

    My 2c, I think it would sound horrible, since you muddy up the stereo effect (both Ls playing at the same time) *unless* someone figured out a way to tell the system that monitor 1 is on the right so all "right speakers" should only be that monitor, etc.
