How to play from 2 jack ports?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have 2 headphones connected at the back of the PC and at the front, I can't get my songs to play on both of them....

Only 1 would work at a time :/

You could use something like a 3.5mm splitter on one of the outputs:

the splitter listed above is probably your best option.

what the driver of the audio ports is doing is thinking you have speakers plugged into the back, and when you plug in headphones in the front, it is trying to make it so the speakers stop making noise and it only outputs through your speakers.

just go with a cheap splitter.

i know this from previous builds. i used an m4a88td mobo in an antec 1200 case that had the headphones port on the front. when i would plug something into the front the rear port would turn off.

check the settings in your driver software. (should be a mobo driver)
