Hi gents.
I have this 7.1 audio chipset and an ASUS mobo.
My case has a front panel mini-jack mic IN and headset OUT that I've never been able to configure... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

Is it possible to have comms on a non-USB headset, and game audio output from speakers?

I don't think so, as to separate them, you'd need to have two sound devices, one for each.

You can with a Realtek HDA (7.1 + 2) onboard. 7.1 channels suround from the rear output, and 2 from the front output.

So yes you can set it to play the games sounds of a suround speakerset, and get TeamSpeak on your headset from a single device.


p.s. if you got a ADI Soundmax chipset its a resourse hog (sounds like sh*t also) and i sugest you get a good soundcard instead like a Soundblaster Audigy or X-Fi for better game performance and soundquality.
I dont know if they (or any other than Realtek) suport a seperate output for the front channel.

Thanks all.
Yes, it's an ADI Soundmax 7.1 (mobo is Asus P5B DeLuxe).
I know I have to get rid of it...sooner or later...
