2 listen 2 film on HDD & wife listens 2 web radio?

  Triprajul 06:54 13 May 2010


My wife loves to listen to Internet radio. She listens to it via our computer speakers. I was wondering if it were possible for me to listen to a film stored on our HDD via headphones while my wife listened to her favorite Internet radio station at the same time? Any advice in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I would have thought not, connecting headphones simply re-routes the speaker output. I doubt you can have multiple audio outputs even if you had 2 sound cards.

Why don't you buy the wife an internet radio?

Still maybe I'll be proved wrong by someone who knows more than me.
