1. With Vista it is a manual process, you must manually set the output device.
2. Currently running apps will still output to the existing output device, only newly apps will go out through the newly selected output device.
So that's where I went wrong, I'd switch the output device to head phones with an mp3 running, when nothing changed assumed it didn't work.
Guess I shouldn't assume that what's in XP should be in Vista. You've saved a weekend if pointless testing.
