I'm not sure if this is to go under a different section or not but this is the one I chose, so...yeah.

My current problem is that when I use a voice chat program, like Ventrilo, I can't listen to music at the same time. So I was wondering if it was at all possible if I could have music come out of my speakers, and have the voices from Ventrilo come from the headset. My headset is plugged into the front panel, and my speakers are plugged in at the back.

I was told there was a way with Realtek HD Audio, which I have, but it was never described in any form of detailed way, and by that I mean they never said how to do it, just that you could.

In most systems, when you plug into the front panel connector, it bypasses the back connector. I don't know of any easy way of getting both to be enabled.

WHen I play games or listen to other audio/video sources while also talking on Vent,I adjuct the volume to the other sources to balance out Ventrilo. In other words I lower sound for the other applications and keep Vent louder than the rest.
