Windows 7: Realtek HD Changing Jack output reassignments ( FIX )

That's why i said it's a real problem. Firstly, Windows 7 has different audio endpoint mapping system. Audio endpoints can now be changed on the fly, whilst the app is still running.

In vista, the app readout the registry and latched on to the given endpoints. After that you needed to close the app, change the endpoint and restart.

Since 7, the registry endpoints don't point to the real hardware but to virtual hardware. This gives you the possibility (which for me is long time overdue, should be in vista sp2) to switch from headphones to speakers or such without shuttingdown the sound app.

Furthermore, for every chipset there are different settings. What works for one doesn't have to work for another even on the same computer.

If it works you're in luck if it doesn't......

can you post a screencap of your registry (on the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96C-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000\Settings\" directory)

and what kind of setup are you planning to use for the pinouts

I have 3 output jacks. the middle one is green, right one is blue and left one is orange/pink. on windows xp, when it worked fine, blue one used to be subwoofer and central speaker. green one was the two front ones and orange one was two rear ones.

my speakers are logitech x530: Logitech X-530 5.1ch Home Theatre Speaker (970114-0122 ) - Logitech - DealsDirect.com.au Australia

the weirdest thing though, is that when i test the speakers in system:



It works perfectly. Also when i test them in realtek, they also work perfectly:



but those are the only 2 applications I can get the sound from all of the speakers. another option is that ****ty "speaker fill", then i have sound from all of them, but as everyone already knows, it's not even sound, but just some ****ty noise.

did you try switching your subs/center with your rear?

according to the pinouts
pin01 = should be rear (05 00 00 00)
pin02 = should be subs (06 00 00 00)
