Windows 10 Rear speakers greyed out

  1. I always had a 5.1 + Headset (separate streams) sound setup in windows 7 (I set center and rear speakers to line-in and mic input respectively) and never had any issues with it. Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10 my rear speakers are greyed out in Realtek HD Audio Manager and I can only reconfigure the mic jack to side speakers. I've tried installing older drivers and retasking the jack in regedit but nothing works. Has anyone been able to work around this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated because now I have to choose between 5.1 and my Headset and manually plug and unplug it every time I need one or another :/

    Relevant specs:
    MB: Gigabyte GA-Z97P-D3
    OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 (Build 10240)
    Current Audio Driver: Realtek HD Audio Driver R4.31 from Gigabyte Official Site
    Previously tested drivers: R3.94 from Gigabyte (the one I had on Win7 that worked there), R2.79 from Realtek Site

    Other specs:
    RAM: 2x8GB RipjawsX 1866 CL9
    CPU: i5 4690k@4.5ghz
    GPU: R9 390 Gigabyte G1 Gaming
