    For me Realtek HD Audio Manager doesn’t have those settings. For headphones it just has “Tie up same types of INPUT jacks…”

    I don’t know if anyone can read or will read this, but I’ve been experiencing the following problem. Currently I am using the Realtek Control Panel (ASUS style) the pictures of which you posted up there. All I want is to hear sound simultaneously from my front and rear jacks( Speakers + Headphones). Currently It comes either from the front one or from the rear one and I can never make it play the sound from both at the same time. I don’t understand why it doesn’t do this by default. It’s driving me insane >_< Please help.

      Sure, I try to read and answer all comments if there is a question!

      I personally just “disabled the popup dialog when new devices connect” and split my front and back audio ports: “Make front and rear output devices playback different audio streams simultaneously”
      The Rear port is then your main speaker device and should be default windows audio device. In the Windows Sound Recording section activate your stereo mix, open its properties and on the “Listen” tab activate Listen to this device, and select your HD 2nd Output.

      It sometimes also works to leave “make front and rear output dev..” untouched and set to “Mute the rear output device, when a front headphone is plugged in.” But you have to disable the popup dialog so it does not mute the rear port when you plugin your headset on the front.
