Windows 7: Can Realtek auto detect and switch to which mode I'm playing on?

Can Realtek auto detect and switch to which mode I'm playing on?

Hi. I'm sorry if this is posted elsewhere, or in the wrong spot. I just got a new computer (HP Pavilion Elite) and it has the realtek audio driver. Version 6.0.1.6053.

I use Logitech Z5500 speakers. I use an analog connection for games for 5.1 and an optical connection for music and movies. Also I may use a headset connected to the front of the HP for gaming and vent.

Everything works fine, but the problem is, I have to manually set my default device each time. If I want to play a game and use my mic, I need to manually open the realtek control panel and set my headset as the default device and then launch my game. If I want to liste nt omusic, I need to manually switch to HD audio. If I want to play my game normally, I have to manually switch to Analog.

Is there a way it can detect what I'm using, or at the very least, detect my headset being plugged in and switch to it and use it?

Thanks for your time and help

In control panel/sounds/headphones and look at properties and see if drives are updated.

I'm sorry, nothing stood out to me that related to my problem. Did I miss something, do you know of this happening to others?

I noticed on the realtek control panel, it does detect a headset being plugged in. It just..doesn't cut off the speaker sound and switch to headphones.


er, wow. I somehow missed this: Realtek Mute Rear output when front input is plugged in I think that is what I'm looking for. Thanks, sorry.

I'm having the same problem. It is a pain the the arse. It's like a ten-step manual procedure to reconfigure Windows 7 Realtek configuration and my receiver just to switch from a DVD in stereo to a DVD in 5.1.
I was told by another member to update my driver to the latest listed at Realtek (as I can see you are using) from the latest listed at HP for my HP e9280t.

I asked Realtek and was told that Microsoft specs allow them to enable one xor the other audio outputs, but not two at a time.
