    Simultaneous Audio Output

    Just thought I would share this because I googled around for a long time before finally finding an answer.

    This is for people who want to be able to output audio to multiple soundcards.

    I use this because I have no center speaker hooked-up to my surround because I prefer to use the TV Speakers as center channel instead. So I have 5.1 signal going to the surround through coax and stereo to my TV through HDMI audio.

    Install Pulseaudio preferences

    sudo apt-get install paprefs
    Run paprefs and there is a checkbox to enable simultaneous output to all local sound cards.

    Once you do that simply select simultaneous output as default output in sound preferences. (I prefer pavucontrol on 11.10) From there you can set-up, in sound preferences, your speaker types to each device.
