Ok. Well, I've never seen an ASUS Geforce 8400 with two HDMI outputs. Neither DVI nor VGA carry an audio signal, so it makes sense that you're only getting audio over to only one HDTV.

If you do have a card that has two HDMI outputs, then I suspect there are two different audio controllers and you can only use one at a time.

Windows should not send the same sound source to two devices. HDMI is even stickier with it's HDCP protocalls. if both are hoooked up with HDMI, you can go into your sound control panel, and select which set you would like to play the audio through.
