Windows 7: How to configure headphone jack and speak jack together

How to configure headphone jack and speak jack together

I'd like to plug my speakers into the back speaker jack and headphones to the front jack. I can't do this and have both work at the same time. I have a cheapo Insight speaker with a volume puck that lets me plug a headphone jack but then the speakers turn off.

Seems to me with front panel and rear panel jacks I should be able to do this but so far, I'm stumped.

Any ideas?

Depends on the sound card you got. Realtek HD Audio Manager has a Device Advanced Settings option at top right, You can un-tick "Mute rear output ..." and see if it works.

You pointed out an option I completely missed. I selected the 2 simultaneous streams with the headphones in the front jack and the speakers in the rear. Tho it would be nice to actually have 2 simultaneous streams, I have to select one or the other from the Sound Option panel. At least I don't have to plug/unplug so I can live with this.

Thanks for that tip.
