This script is mean to be associated with a keyboard shortcut , his purpose is to switch from internal output to hdmi output. It also switch output for all source (meaning all software currently outputing sound).

you can modify : notifyshow : 1 to show , 0 to not show notifydelay : the time to show the notification in ms hdmicardnum : the number of your hdmi card , this can be found using "pacmd list-sinks" and looking to the index number corresponding to the hdmi sink
