How to Get Seperate Headphones & Speaker Settings

Hi!

First time poster here looking for a bit of help. I want to pipe separate audio through my front jack which I use for headphones and back jack which I use for speakers. I have an on-board Realtek ALC888/1200 (according to everest). What I want is this:

Right now on my computer I have one option, speakers which encompass all the back jacks and the front audio jack. While under recording I do have separate mics. How can I separate the front jack into it's own option?

I'm using win7 home premium and I'm not sure if anything else is important, ask away if it is!

Thanks ,
BoggyP

edit: Here's the issue:

When you plug in your headphones you get a settings dialog right? You should be able to set things through that and have it not effect the speakers. If not, try to download the latest Realtek drivers, that might give you an option.

I tried that. I can't find the settings for it. When I plug them in the speakers turn off (unless I tell it to not use jack detection than identical sound comes out both).
Do you know where the settings might be located to enable multiple streaming?

It may be against the rules here, but in the interest of getting help:bump.

edit: The card supports this but I just can't find a way to use it.

Ok. As you can see my friend has a device advanced settings button.
I have this:


Now. He has a slighly different setup and card but has the option I've been looking for that I *know* the card supports. Is there a way without having to install realtek's stuff (maybe replace files) to replace my manager with his and attempt to do that without replacing the actual driver. That could work? maybe?
As you can see I am trying very hard to solve this. I could really use help.

edit: his system as almost identical to mine except I have the acer variant of his mobo and a different realtek onboard card.

edit 2: this is not just a me problem on many sites and forums I see similar problems whether it be to do the same thing or something different some people don't have the advanced settings button: Speaker+Headphone at the same time Problem

edit 3: Front jack not working for Realtek HD Audio on Windows 7 this person's solution involves bios options I don't have thanks to Acer's beautifully locked bios. Now after rereading I don't think i'd have to make any changes to me bios since I have everything but the advanced settings dialogue. damn.

edit 4: It appears that some people have the realtek (not ASUS) version of the app with the advanced options available: http://www.blog.danamccall.com/wp-co...08/realtek.jpg
Now I'm more lost than ever.

edit 5: Again. Same problem. No solution. http://www.vistax64.com/sound-audio/...o-manager.html

edit 6: I found in a random thread someone with the same model as me who had a headphones option as an input device separate from the back audio jacks. So I was right about the card supporting it.

When I right click it just gives the option "audio device settings" which links to that speaker section of the panel.

But thanks for trying, nice to know someone on this forum is reading this.

Im sure its being read, they just may not know the answer.

Unfortunatly,nor do I.
Thats the only thing I can suggest at this time.
I am very unfamiliar with onboard audio, as never really used it.
