My wife has the same Realtek ALC892 chip but on a different motherboard, an Asus P8Z77-V Pro, using the Microsoft driver from 10/24/2016 and her's switches between them properly, like mine used to. Then again, she also has two different devices listed, one for Speakers and another for Headphones, with the enabled device switching. I only have Speakers listed.
HUh strange not sure what could be going on there , i have the same chipset you have and have several different devices listed even my headphones i do it all from that place i told you, and they all hold the volume i put them at.
HUH i will see if what i can do and get back with you , i will do bit research on my end.
I have another P8Z77-V Pro that needs to be RMAed because the jack detection doesn't work. Why the soundcard needs to tell me what I have plugged in, as opposed to the other way around, I don't know.
Well, I don't know if anything of the below settings can help, but I have the feeling this is not the setting I told you about. I cannot find it, maybe they removed from newer versions.
Of course it does matters what the exact Realtek chipset and implementation (desktop of notebook). The desktop implementations always give much more settings than their notebook counterparts. Mine is Realtek ALC887 @ Intel Cougar Point PCH - High Definition Audio Controller [B-3] (in simple terms Realtek ALC887 HD audio card on Asus P8H61 motherboard, a desktop implementation).
Isn't that what they call artificial intelligence ?Why the soundcard needs to tell me what I have plugged in, as opposed to the other way around, I don't know.
