Some RealTek HD Audio Managers have an option to either mute the speakers when a headset is plugged in or like what you want, do not mute the speakers.

On mine, click on Device Advanced Settings and it brings up another screen with the options.

Mate I have the -V board and I have a cable hook up from the board header to it yours should have the same. Did you miss the cabling when you built??

If you look you can find the headers along the side of the board which the 6Gbs SATA ports are on

Did I miss something? I thought the user wanted to output from the headphone and speakers at the same time? Not how to hook up the front panel headphone/mic jacks?

Jack in post #1 Jem says he wanted the headphones from the front jack and from the back or at least that is how I read it

Like you said mostly the phones in either source will disable the speakers but I think maybe Jem is under the impression - I stand to be corrected that he can have headphones connected to both at the same time for a second listener?? I suppose I should have asked if he had those headers hooked up to the front panel

Sorry mate I will butt out.

Its OK, just that I thought I had misinterpreted what the user wanted.

In some RealTek systems, such as mine that I posted the screen capture, there is an option to have both the headphone and speakers active at the same time, or as it usually works the headphone mutes the speakers.

No further comment from the user. Something we said must have fixed it for them.
