How to have headphones and speakers at the same time on rear jacks?

Level 7
Hello guys,

I'm having serious problems setting it up the way that I have speakers and headphones at the rear, so NO FRONT, I'm not using the front panel(it's not even connected) !
So I have my speakers plugged in the green(line in) and anyway when you click on it it asks you what did you plug in or what do you want to set it to (right window in screenshot below), and the speakers work just fine then.
If I set this to headphones and really connect the headphones there they work, but then I cant connect my speakers(simple stereo speakers) anywhere else because on all other jacks it doesnt ask me what did I just plug in.
So yes after I plug in the speakers on any jack, in the software the jack lights up but when you click on it nothing happens.

Also, after installing audio drivers at windows start I had that error "atkex_cmd.exe has stopped working", not sure if it's related.
Using Windows 7 64 bit.

This is unbelievable for such a high end board!

Very nice find bud! Good job! 🙂

Anyway, for a while now I'm using wireless headphones and their USB transmitter is always inserted in an external USB hub which has the possibility of turning a group of USB ports on or off, so when I want to use the headphones I just turn on the button on the hub and one on the headphones and that's it!

Btw a USB hub like this.
