I think you found something sir.
I bet this is the problem, the driver is thinking that it is an input jack instead of an output jack, but why?
I uninstalled & deleted the Realtek drivers, rebooted and the system installed the generic Microsoft audio drivers
Same problem, I only got audio from the headphone jack and not the rear panel no matter what combination of speakers/headphones in the jacks and the Microsoft settings.
This time I did not get any input options
It seems the Mobo is telling the computer that the rear green jack is an input device... would that be a BIOS issue? I have the latest one installed.
Default speakers with my computer speakers test: No Audio
Default speakers with my headset test: No Audio
Default HD Audio 2nd output (Headphone jack) with my computer speakers test: Audio in each channel
Default HD Audio 2nd output (Headphone jack) with my headset test: Audio in each channel
Yes, I think I posted above that I tried every possible combination on that page. each time I only got audio from the headphone jack.
I remember you being active and helpful in the other thread, I appreciate you jumping in an helping me out here.
I uninstalled/deleted and re-installed the Realteck drivers.
It gave me the same list of inputs as I posted above.
All were set to 0 except the Rear Green in, that was set for 100
HD Audio in bios: I can only change the front panel to AC'97, but it is checked on HD
HD RT X64 drivers: Installed Realtek_Audio_V51006699_6016699_XPWin7_8
from downloading from the MAXIMUS V FORMULA Windows 7 64bit Download page
HD named molex to mobo audio header: Yellow 10-1 pin mobo audio header pluged into AAFP
The only other audio connections on the mobo is for a 4-1 SPDIF-OUT. Not connected because I do not have a digital output on my front panel.
I had DIVX, CCCP and ffdshow installed in my last setup (ASUS Striker Extreme) without an issue. (Yes, it might have been overkill)
I uninstalled all of them and installed KLite and I still have the exact same issue.
But then again, if a codec issue is causing the problem, wouldn't I not be able to get audio from the front jack as well?
The are only three audio options in the bios:
1. Turn on/off the on-board audio (Set to ON)
2. Front panel connection AC'97 or HD (set to HD)
3. SPDIF Out Type SPDIF or HDMI (Set to SPDIF)
There are no other mentions of audio settings or connections in the mobo manual other than what I listed above regarding the bios settings and the mobo itself.
I am not sure how to turn off the chipset without turning off all my audio.
I disconnected the phone headset, web cam, Bluetooth (so the Realtek audio was the only audio device in the Device Manager) before I installed and re installed the Realtek drivers. It worked the same way before, with the MS drivers and after the Realtek reinstall (Only the headphone jack worked for both the headphones and speakers)
I looked at the latest NVIDIA Driver install and there is no mention of it touching the audio
It works exactly the same with System Startup Sound, System Notifications, WMA, MP3 in both WMP and iTunes, all types of video clips and YouTube.
No matter what I do, there is no audio coming out of the rear green jack, even though the Realtek Audio Manager (when installed) senses when I plug in the speakers or the headphones, it says it is working properly in the Device Manager, and I even get a bouncy green line in the Windows Audio Mixer when I try to play audio through the jack.
In just about each situation (except when I physically disconnected the audio front panel header from the mobo) I could hear the audio with the headphone/computer speakers through the headphone (front panel) jack.
Both the mobo I have now, and the one that I returned did the exact same thing.
Can anyone address why it lists my rear green jack as an input device?
