[Solved] Asus P867 Realtek ALC892 audio: same audio stream to Front & Rear output

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a way to have my Asus P8P67 internal Realtek ALC892 audio chipset to output the same audio stream to both front and rear output an the same time, and i can't find the correct way.

I set the motherboard connector & bios to provide HD audio to the front panel audio jacks (the other is AC'97), but in the realtek control panel, i have only these 2 options:
- Mute the rear audio when the front audio jacks are used
- Play 2 different streams to front and rear

And they work as expected, with the first choice the rear audio is muted when i connect a headset to the front jacks, or with option 2 i get 2 audio outputs in windows, and i can manually select what each output can play (one skype and one windows, ecc), but i want to have the same stream on both (while talking on skype, i sometimes need to let others hear the conversation with me, or while watching a movie to turn off the main desktop speakers to listen with headsets, without the need to go each time to windows Playback devices to change the default Playback device).

I had before a Gigabyte motherboard with the realtek ALC889A chipset, using the same RealTek drivers (maybe an older version), and in the realtek driver control panel i had an option to play the same stream to both front and rear (without muting or having 2 different streams).

Any ideas?

update:
added screenshot of the Realtek Control Panel, driver version R2.60 (screenshot quality is low because i've done it over VNC)

Downmix to front and back channels?

Can't you just uncheck "Mute the rear audio when the front audio jacks are used" ?

No, it's a radio button, either option 1 or option 2

I added a screenshot in my original post

update:
I tried by changing the setting for the Front Audio on the motherboard and the bios to AC97 audio (instead of HD), and now even by selecting "Mute Rear when front is connected" i hear the audio on both speakers and headset :s strange but i want it like this

You should be able to do it with an Audio Repeater from Virtual Audio Cable as long as you have the Realtek codec that can "make front and rear output devices play two different audio streams". It should create two sound devices and you can "copy" the sound from one to the other with the repeater. I don't have a RealTek codec to try with though.
