    No Playback Device Option in Realtek HD Audio Manager

    I would like to switch the audio output between front headset and rear speaker in Realtek HD Audio Manager. I remember before there was a "Playback Device" option in the software. Then, choose "make front and rear output devices playback two different audio streams simultaneously" But it missing.

    This my pic.

    Hi, it looks as though you're using a customised version of the driver.

    Perhaps if you used the generic version, you'd see more options. That worked for me- but I have a laptop.

    I suppose it could be a hardware limitation... perhaps front and rear are hard-wired to play the same. You could post a question on the ASUS forum or ask ASUS support about this.

    If it's hardware your options might be limited to a soldering iron and some chips (), or a different board. Best check with ASUS as to its capabilities and spec.
