Windows 7: Realtek HD Changing Jack output reassignments ( FIX )

15 Sep 2011   #161

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

For what it's worth my DevType Key is 'Drv6141_DevType_0887_SS102804aa' and the Pin assignments are there just like Neilsouth said. This might come in real handy if I upgrade my 2-speaker system that came with my new PC. Thanks!

I just updated my drivers today and it appears the numeric pin values have been changed.

Driver Date: 08/30/2011
Driver Version:

I use both the black and green outputs for front speaker assignment. The old pin assignements made more sense, but alas, they're different. :-/ Thanks Neilsouth for the OP.

Pin00 is now Pin14 (green port)
Pin01 is now Pin15 (black port)

Pin17 looks like it is assigned the side speakers so must be the grey port. Not sure what the new Pin1a is. Heres my new reg file I keep on my server for backup:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Windows 7 x64

Hi I just wanted to bump this because it worked for me.

Basically I made this post in another forum:
I have a Dell XPS LS01X. It has 3 audio slots:
1) Audio-out/headphone connector
2) Headphone/digital S/PSIF combo connector
3) Audio-in/microphone connector

My 5.1 system requires 3 slots - it has a black, pink and green wire. My Dell manual says for the audio-in slot: "NOTE: You can get up 5.1 channel speakers by using the three audio connectors (1, 2 and 3) or by using the S/PDIF connector (2)".

With Realtek Audio Manager (system controls for audio) I can change what the jacks are used for.

1) Can be used for;
-Front Speaker Out

-Front Speaker Out
-Rear Speaker Out
-Center/Subwoofer Speaker Out

3) (Audio slot)
-Line In
-Mic In
-Rear Speaker Out

I have a Logitech X-530. It recommends I put green in 1), pink in 2) and black in 3). The problem is that 3) doesn't work even if I change the setting to "Rear Speaker Out".

Other information:
---ANY SPEAKERS work with 1) and 2) as long as the jack is for HEADPHONE or FRONT SPEAKER OUT (i.e. even the center speaker out option doesn't let my speakers work)
---REAR SPEAKER OUT doesn't work with anything
My Realtek Audio Manager (as well as general sound settings) allow me to set sound to Stereo, Quadraphonic or 5.1 so I think 5.1 should work...

In the registry, I found PIN01 PIN03 PIN04 - I think reinstalled the Realtek HD audio and the numbers changed to like PIN19 PIN1a PIN1b. Anyway, I had all 3 jacks plugged and changed the values to 04 00 00 00. Then I restarted and wullah! It worked!

-Do not remove the replug the things into the jacks or it will reset the values and you need to change again
-Restarting is ESSENTIAL: someone else said something about disabling the speakers and enabling = restart in another forum but it didn't work for me...

Thanks! :)

Hello, everybody. I've been reading this thread because I have a similar issue, but haven't found an answer of my specific case: I want to use the mic input jack of my laptop as an output so that I can use both jacks (the only one that my laptop has) as surround system.
Laptop Toshiba Satellite L455D
Realtek High Definition audio
OS: Windows 7 Home premium x64
I'm a total noob with these kind of registry programming topics, so I'll be very thankful if you could help me.

Windows XP SP3

I guess if anyone knows how to access those options behind the "device advanced settings" link on the top right corner of the Realtek Audio Manager, because mine doesn't show it - by the way, the machine I'm using is WinXP and the Audio Manager is the green one. Are there specific keys that handle those options, especially the "Separate all input jacks as independent input devices" thing? Would someone please check and unchek that option and see what key changes are made to the registry? Thanks in advance!

If its still the same pin assignment as the earlier drivers it would be:

Pin04 = 04 00 00 00
or possibly
Pin18 = 04 00 00 00

If not just keep incrementing the Pin number beginning with Pin16. The value of 04 00 00 00 should still be the right for front speakers. May have to reboot after each change...

Your headphone jack still work up front? If not then your soundcard isnt fried

This is an extremely annoying problem. Took me about 8 hours to fix, but luckily i was able to find a workaround that doesn't involve registry editing. I haven't got time to post it right now, but i can do it later if any of you want it.
