Custom soft to change Sound and Audio Speakers setup

  1. Hi all,

    I just got a 5.1 Speakers set.
    Anyway, the smart guys that designed the sound card, or drivers, dont let me use all specific jack holes to hook them up.
    Instead, they force me to use mic and line out holes to get Center/Woofer and front sounds.
    I need headphones and mic at least as often as speakers.

    Anyway, I have a splitter device that let me connect both headphones and front speakers, also mic and Center/woofer.
    Where can I find a simple application that let me switch from headphones/mic mode to 5.1 speakers mode.
    I can write one myself in VB if I get the right direction where to look (Windows API?).

    The best solution whould be a simple sys-tray icon that give me a menu to switch from 5.1 to headphones.
    That whould set Speakers setup from desktop speakers to 5.1 speakers and mic/front checkbox you can see in C-panel/Sound and Audio device.

    Thanks,
    Crirus

    I would say you are better off getting a new sound card with more ports. Switching liek that shoudl be built into the sound card drivers.
