I am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, this is the output from uname -a if it helps.

Linux plex780 5.0.0-37-generic #40~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Nov 14 12:06:39 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
If I use aplay -l this is the output

[email protected]:~$ aplay -l

I am running a normal desktop version. If I go into settings - sound I can see outputs for
Speakers Built in audio, and,
HDMI/Displayport 4 - GK107 HDMI Audio Controller.

Even though I can have them both 'ON' I can only got audio from one or the other depending on which one I last selected in settings, it seems it is an exclusive output only?

I have done some searching and seen one solution is to install paprefs. But, this did not work as I got an error of

As I am probably a bit grey in the head for this I decided that without checking could be bad for my computer!

In case it helps provide information as to why I would like this, I am running OBS Studio and require the audio to be sent to HDMI to an external UDP stream hardware box and to the internal audio card headphones to provide a monitor for my self.
