Windows 7: Two for one

Two for one

Hello,
Well me and my friend want to watch a movie but I don't have speakers. And I can plug in my headset and my headphones (both get detected) but how can I make them both produce sound from the movie? Because it only plays with only one headset.

That would be a difficult question to answer, without knowing what headset and sound card that you have?

Have you tried plugging the headsets directly into the sound card with splitters?

Is it possible without splitters?

I do not know your sound card, therefore I can't say that it is, nor can I say that it is not. However, I seriously doubt it. I use a Sennheiser cordless head, which is capable of supporting up to 4 headsets at a time, but that is done by the headset transmitter, not the sound card. Frequently, plugging a headset into the front I/O will mute the speakers, so even if you connected one headset at the sound card, and one at the front I/O, you would have what you have already described, one working, the other not. If your sound card has an audio control center, you might explore it for a means to not have it mute the speakers, when a headset is installed, but whether that is there or not is anyone's guess.

I said my card is a realtek high definition audio.

As I said, I do not know your sound card. As far as I know, all Realtek sound is onboard, not what I consider a sound card, but that is immaterial. Unless someone specifically uses the same setup as you do, and they can offer greater insight, I think that you are on your own experimenting in the audio control center.

I would highly recommend that you fill out your system specs (lower left corner of you posts). It might help with this question, and even if not, it might help with future questions.

Isn't there a third party program that will allow audio through both?
