Windows 7: Headphones & Speakers separate configuration...

Headphones & Speakers separate configuration...

I'm trying to have two Audio configurations, my 5.1 configuration and my headphones, both running at the same time but cannot find the way!

My issue is that i have my AUDIO setup to 5.1 with DOLBY, but if i plug my headphones (front panel) i will get the same configuration and obviously it doesn't match to stereo, so the audio it's getting canceled...

The control panel has this headphone fader but that doesn't work, and if lower the speakers fader it also lowers the volume on my headphones; if change the setup to headphones it doesn't work either, and WMP sends a error regarding to missing device for AUDIO.

What i want is to be able to use my 5.1 DOLBY system, and if i want put my headphones on and listen the same source but in stereo mode, each with each own configuration and volume, i mean it is there and i think it is supposed to work like that but it just not working for me though!

Any help on how to get around this?

Thank you all!
