Put vista ultimate x64 on my machine courtosy of free copy a mate got given and didnt want.

Anyway, this is my desktop machine but I figure its more likly to get an answer in here then the other places since its an audio problem.

In XP, there was a tickbox in the HD audio mixer to make it so I could tell it what was plugged into the front jacks, this is missing in vistas version of the realtek HD aydio manager, and when I plug in my headphones, nothing happens in the mixer, the jack doesnt get enabled for a second stream like it did in XP. I had to tick the box and set it to headphones for it to work in XP, cant do it when the box isnt there.

Its the gigabyte 780g board if it matters, I am sure other people must have had this problem.

From the volume icon go into playback devices. Then right click in the area that showes you what devices you have and select show disabled devices. You may find the headphone jacks are simply disabled.

Unfortunatly its not disabled in there, its listed as not plugged in. Autodetect on the front never worked on XP, so I am assuming that there needs to be something specific to the case to detect if there is a plug in or not. the rear jacks detect just fine and pop up to ask me what I have plugged in, but I cant get a second stream to come out the back, it just mirrors whats coming out the green lineout jack to my stereo system.

Also, I seem to have no difference between chosing front speakers or headphones? Is that normal, I would have thought that if its offering a choise that they would at least change the output level to suit what is selected.
