Windows 7: Advanced Audio Settings/Controls

14 Jan 2011   #11


I'm assuming you both can read this post and could also read my above post (#9), so it must be the fact that I originally wrote the IDT and RealTek Sound Settings information in a Word doc and cut and pasted into the Message Reply box. Can't imagine why that would happen, but it apparently did, so there you have it. . .

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Hi guys, any more info on how to get more advanced settings? I have the same question as Fuzz Ball, but my motivation is to take advantage of multiple audio devices.

I have an L502x windows7 home edition, dell's realtek options do not allow disabling of jack detection, and I'd like to specifically (first!) keep playing audio on one application (mediamonkey) through speakers (built-in, awesome) while using speakers plugged in to (either) headphone socket to simultaneously play audio from another app (chrome)

I've done the mapping apps to devices before, guess the system had a better soundcard that supported this...

How do I find out which soundcard I have and whether it support the feature I'm describing?

someone found a solution, but I don't know where this was achieved, or if my spec will allow... 2 headphone jacks? surely I must be able to have multi-speakers!?!

optimistic 'J
solved the problem with different output to the front panel on my ASUS P5P43TD.

All you need to do is to go to Onboard Devices Configuration in BIOS settings and change Front Panel Type from HD Audio to AC97

After restarting you have now Tab called HD Audio 2nd output in Realtek Audio Manager (but keep Speakers tab as default output).

If you can't see that Tab, go to Device Advanced Settings and change it to Make Front and Rear output devices playback two different audio streams simultaneously. If you choose the other option in Advanced, you will have only one stream but from both outputs - front and rear.

And now you have multiple choice for output in popular applications such as audoi- and video-players, where you can change output to Speakers or to HD Audio 2nd output.

As a result my Foobar2000 (audio) and MPC (video) are playing onto different outputs as I'm typing this post.

For some games you can choose the output too (Black Ops) in game Sound options but in some of them you cannot (MW II) BTW if you don't set anything as Default in Realtek Audio Manager you won't have any sound in MW II and some other games.

any l502x owners anywhere that can confirm whether this is "normal" (abundance of "unplugged devices" when connecting a single samsung lcd tv via hdmi....)
