Windows 7: Logitech G35 headset..

Logitech G35 headset..

I get the system sound indicating that a USB device has been plugged in,
but the main room speakers remain on - they used to switch off automatically..

I want it set up so that the headphones automatically mute the main speakers when plugged in..
it always used to do this, but after playing around with the settings, this no longer happens..

anybody know how to restore the normal settings?

64-Bit W7 Ult_sp1, OK this is becoming a nuisance..

I've got three UI's for sound on this PC/Mobo

1. the Realtek onboard soundcard
2. Windows7's audio interface
3. Creative X-Fi (which appears to use the Realtek card) and the system doesn't recognise (!)

I want it set up so that the Realtek Hi-Def Audio (speakers) is the default
and the G35 (USB input) switches it out when plugged in, via a USB port
- it really ought to be straightforward..

At the moment the Room Speakers have the Default, which is OK
but I have to manually switch over to the Headphones when they're plugged in
and the sound via the Headphones is garbled when the 5.1 switch is enabled via the phones
although it's fine when the 2.1 stereo switch on the phones is in the "up" position

- what settings do I need to input so that
a. the headphones automatically switch out the speakers
b. get clear 5.1 sound from the G35 Headset

and which UI should I be using for all this, the Win7, or the Realtek interface..

PS: all drivers are up to date, BTW

yikes - three posts in a row.. (sorry!)

- thought I'd better report back, as I've managed to cure the problem

- deleted the Realtek drivers from my system completely
- and re-downloaded the latest R.255 64-bit driver from Realtek's site

did a quick check and set up for 5.1 surround and everything works fine..
now when I plug the headphones in, the speakers automatically switch out

- garbled sound has gone also..

hope this helps anyone with similar problems..
