My graphics card is a VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Turks XT [Radeon HD 6670/7670]

I'm using open source drivers and have 3 screens plugged in, using DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort.

I'd like to have to sound redirected to the DisplayPort-connected monitor instead of the HDMI-connected one.

In sound settings, I can choose between 1.Digital output (S/PDIF) (my motherboard's I guess), or 2.HDMI / DisplayPort - Turks/Whistler HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 6000 Series], but despite the name, it uses HDMI output and not DisplayPort output.

Where do I set that ?

Try using Pulseaudio Volume Control


My computer does not have a displayport, or DVI :-(

You just need to run pavucontrol in terminal after it is installed, and it offers more advanced settings to that of the normal sound settings.
