Realtek HD Audio with speakers + headphones

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN.

I am having a bit of trouble getting my sound setup to work the way I want it to, so I was hoping you guys could help me out a bit. What I am trying to do, is to separate my speakers and my headphones into their own "sound device" that I can then choose to be the default playback device in Windows. I have my speakers connected to the green audio jack on the back, and my headphones to the black audio jack. This setup doesn't work, since the audio plays back in both my speakers and my headphones at the same time, and I'm not able to select either one of them. If I connect my headphones to the front audio jack, this works just fine since the front audio jack is a separate device in the sound settings, and I can therefore select either that or my speakers. I would prefer to have my headphones connected to the back of my PC though, so I was simply wondering if there is a solution for this.

Unless you want to get another soundcard / use an adapter for optical I dont think you can.

Can you not disable your speakers by turning them off?
