Windows 7: Realtek HD Audio Manager ''Mute Rear Speakers'' HELP

Realtek HD Audio Manager ''Mute Rear Speakers'' HELP

Hey,

For quite a while now i've been using a pair of USB Speakers.
I had it set so my games came out my speakers and my Team speak Voice chat came through my headset.
I recently decided to swap back to my Creative speakers, but now i have an issue.

When i plug my speakers and headphones in the Realtek HD Audio Manager is only detecting one device. (Muting my speakers when my headphones are plugged in) I've managed to get them both working at the same time but due to the fact it's only detecting one of them i can't organize / change which programs use which.

I remember at one point in the past when using these that i selected ''Mute rear speakers when front pannel is in use'' but now i can't seem to find this option?

I've looked at a few forums that say ''Go into Device advanced settings'' and even seen a screen shot of someone pointing out that it's at the top right on the Realtek HD Audio Manager, but on mine that option is not there and nor can i find it!


Any and all help would be lovely! Thanks <3

Attached is a screen shot of what my Realtek HD Audio Manager looks like with BOTH Headphones and Speakers connected.

My RealTek HD manager has a "Device Advanced Settings" option which allows how the headphone/speakers act. Yours does not appear to have this option. Some Vendors include this and others do not, and using the generic RealTek sound drivers instead of the PC Vendor (or motherboard on a custom built system) drivers does not always work or work correctly.

Using USB audio devices is a separate function and the reason it worked with the USB device.

Sooo is there anyway for me to sort it?
I've updated and re-installed my drivers etc, still got the problem.

They use to work individually on this computer and i have seen the advanced settings before, as i set it to mute the speakers when the headset was plugged in

I don't think you can without the "Advanced Settings" options.

You haven't filled in much of the My System Specs so we don't know exactly what your system is.

If you are using the drivers from the RealTek site, reinstall your PC vendor's drivers. If you are using the PC Vendor's drivers, try the RealTek drivers.
