creative sound blaster x-fi titanium hd - how to switch?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have this video card and I have my headphones in the 3.5mm jack and a speakers in the RCA (left and right). How do I switch between the two without unplugging them? If I have both of them plugged in then only the RCA speakers play. If I unplug the RCA, only then will the 3.5mm headphones have sound. I tried just trying to select the default speaker but they are both the same in the default setting.

there should be a software setting somewhere to disable the speakers when you plug in headphones.

One of the design oversights of Creative's card. Main reason why I run two sound cards.

Yup. You can't have both plugged in at the same time and be able to switch between them with software.

Not without extra cables like splitters and stuff anyway. Which may or may not change "performance".

Same reason I haven't sold my STX yet, too. I prefer the Titanium HD for sound but its design has just let it down in my eyes.

Wow, you could even do that with the xtremegamer. I was wondering where that setting was in the control panel.
