How to reload "Playback devices" components list?


Recommended Posts

I have my PC connected to an AVR via HDMI. If I put the AVR on standby and then switch it ON again, the "Playback devices" components list shows "NVIDIA High Definition Audio" as "Not plugged in", as shown in the image below.


I have to log off & login again or restart the PC to show the "NVIDIA High Definition Audio" as active.

What I want to do is, somehow reload this listing, exactly the same way it reloads when you logout and login again or when you restart the machine, without having to logoff/login or restart.

I thought that restarting the "Windows Audio" and it's dependent services would do it, but that doesn't help. I also tried starting the network related services using the command (which includes restarting Windows Audio service)

svchost -k netsvcs

That didn't help either.

Is there any way?
