Default Default Playback Engine on session open

Is there a way to set priorities for which playback engine I use and would like to default to? I end up opening sessions and it always wants to default to HDMI or other device rather than my MBox 2 pro. This is also not dependent on what my operating system is currently using as it's output sound (this always defaults to mbox when connected). Am I slow and missing something, this didn't seem to happen in previous versions.
Muchas Grassy Ass DUC.

Hold down the 'n' key on your computer as PT launches and you'll be able to select your audio setup. Are you on Mac or PC? If Mac and you have more than 1 audio interface you could set up an aggregate setup. If on Windows you'd have to use ASIO4ALL for multiple interfaces.

If you're on Windows and have HDMI out on your video card, go into Device Manager and Disable the HDMI on the video card. DO NOT have the Mbox set as the default sound card for Windows.
