Hey everyone, I got a problem I am hoping some of you can help me with.
First of all, my video card is a Radeon of the 5770 series. I used to use the DVI interface of my video card for my monitor for a long time (about 2y) until recently when part of the cable started malfunctioning, I looked everywhere in my town but didn't manage to find a replacement for that part.
However, I had an HDMI cable lying around so I decided to give it a try. Aside from the different resolutions and colors, I got used to it pretty quick, apart from one problem I encountered recently.
While I have HDMI on, if I try to plug my headphones using my standard TRS jack (and of course disable HDMI sound from windows), I encountered a peculiar problem. All sound seems to play normally EXCEPT human voices, they are EXTREMELY low, even if I set my volume to max from both windows and my headphones the voices are barely existent(if existent at all)... If I play any song, I hear only instrumental, any movie turns into a soundtrack symphony but no voices!
However, if I let the sound go to my monitor via HDMI, everything sounds normal, but unfortunately I can't do that all the time because I have 2 roommates atm. Furthermore, I never encountered this problem while using the DVI port of my graphics card.
TL;DR : HDMI is causing sound problems with my TRS-connected headphones (WTF), please help!
