Hey there,

I've googled quite a bit but can't find the solution. I got an onboard audio which comes with the Realtek HD Audio-Manager. I've plugged in my headphones in the front and my stereo in the rear - but Realtek doesn't allow me to send the same audio signal to front and rear simultaneously. I've to unplug the headphones every time I want to use the stereo and replug if I want to use the headphones. Any ideas how to solve that?

There is an option to stream two different signals to front and rear simultaneously but not the same signal. Hope you know a solution?

You need to disable "front panel jack detection".

I don't have that option!!
I have TWO headphone sockets (running win7 dell xps l502x, hd audio manager devDriver 6.0.1.7106 )
one maybe spdif, I don't know...

when I plug in normal headphones they both work at same time, but speakers go off... have HD but no devices! JBL speakers and sub-woof inside are amazing...

Does anyone have the ability to monitor the reg, to see what the impact is (@ reg level) when ticking the "disable jack detection" option?

The solution posted by Hawkeye works for me too. Note his red arrow pointing to yellow icon near top-right. But you must also click Device Advanced Settings at top-right and make sure that the top option/button under Playback Device is selected.

I'm running Windows Vista SP2. Yeah I know, it's no longer a supported Microsoft OS.

I'm having a similar situation and my Realtek HD Audio Manager doesn't have the yellow folder icon mentioned above so I can't make that change. It's an Asus P5K Pro MB running Windows 8.1 64bit. Any suggestions?

If your Audio Manager looks like mine, there is a gear in the top right next to the close and minimize window buttons. I clicked the gear and then changed the "Connector Settings" from "HD Audio Front Panel" to "AC97 Front Panel."

ASUS H97-PLUS with Realtek ALC 887, Bitfenix shinobi with AC97/HD (selectable by connector), installed latest ASUS driver V6017354 from ASUS website.

Audio split doesn't work, no option to split or to inhibit front detection in Realtek audio manager- neither AC97 nor HD.

Tried newest REALTEK HD driver from their website - the same problem.

Found the solution in http://www.tomsguide.com/forum/59341-6-solved-split-rear-panel-audio-jacks-separate-audio-streams : uninstalled Realtek crap, after reboot, the chip is driven by native windows 7 drivers. They will allow me to split whether AC97 or HD.

After pluging in my headphone in the front, I got it as playback device "headphone" in addition to my speakers.
Since I want to use it for Microsoft Flight Simulater (FSX) to separate engine noise from tower voice, I had to change the headphone to "default communication device" (right click).

Now, my speakers are the default device and my headphones are the default communication device.
In FSX, my sound settings are "sounds : <default device>" and "voice <default voice device" (which means default communication device in Windows).

Another hint: setting the default format of REALTEK playback devices to "16bit, 44100 Hz (CD)" in opposite to the default "DVD" (properties playback device, advanced) gains remarkable performance (tested with REALTEK driver, not tested with Win7 default driver) - I earned 5-10% CPU on an i3-4340 (independent from the game).

Try this , go to Control Panel then, All Control Panel Items, switch to large icons, then click Realteck HD audio manager.
when open click the little cogwheel in the left hand corner, device advanced settings wil open check the Separate all input
jacks settings, should work ;)

Thank you! It worked but after updating driver it didn't work anymore. Thanks for the second hint too "make sure that the top option/button under Playback Device is selected". Unlogical but after this it works again! :) ))
