Need help on audio priority

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just recently got my front panel audio to work but there seem to be a problem, whenever I plug in my headphones in the front jack, it doesn't take priority from my speaker, I have to change it in my Windows Volume Mixer and set it as default, then it'll work.

Any ideas?

So it won't give any sound to your front or it just sends it to both?

I heard of this with alot of motherboards. My friend's does that as well. If he plugs in some headphones in the front, both the headphones and the speakers will carry the signal.

I know in my Realtek setup, there is an option that if anything is plugged in the front audio inputs, that should override the back ones. Check to see if your mixer has that.

So right now, the rear works (speakers), when I plug in my headphones (front), it won't give any sound to the headphones and still sends sound to the speakers. The only way my headphones would work if I manually go to the mixer and set my headphones as the default output device.

Hmm, that's odd. You gave me an idea, I am going to try to reinstall my drivers and see if that works. Also, I do have 'exclusive priority' checked for both the speakers and headphones, no idea what that is

Thanks for the help so far.
