Newcomer trying out Fedora, and not sure how to configure simultaneous audio output (sound playing to multiple audio devices at once).
There was a simple option for this on Manjaro, but it looks like Fedora is using Pipewire, which I don’t have any experience with.

I finally got the time to mess around with this.
Thanks to the link from
@grumpey I figured it out.
pactl load-module module-null-sink media.class=Audio/Sink sink_name=my-combined-sink channel_map=stereo

Launch qjackctl, then click on
Find your new sink’s “monitor” node and connect it to the playback nodes for the existing audio devices. Here you can see I connected my new “simultaneous-audio-output” to my TV (“Ellesmere HDMI Audio”) and my PC speakers (“Starship/Matisse HD Audio”):
Hopefully this process will become easier as pipewire matures further. Thanks to everyone for the help
