Also, it is an issue for people who use top end headsets for gaming. I have an Astro A50, which runs through the optical port but, use HDMI for my primary sound. Currently there is no option to hear out of my headset but, because the mic is default the game does recognize the mic. So I have to have one ear off to be able to hear. Selecting audio output is a pretty standard gaming requirement with all the surround sound headsets out there.
The problem stems from there being no option under Audio to control your output. It defaults to your system default. If you system default is normal speakers but, you wear a headset (like me) for gaming then you are kinda screwed or hassled with having to continuously change your system settings. This should be a feature worth looking in to, as using a headset and a mic is key to talking to people within the game.
