I have a requirement for multiple outputs of the audio codec. I need the headphones and the usb audio available at the same time. Anyone know a drive that accomplishes this deed?

Hey quack,

"quack?" - seriously??? LOL

Apologies for the lack of replies here mate, and for my late reply also. Frankly, I didn't have a clue and have been waiting to see if someone more knowledgeable than I might respond.

I have been researching this and must admit I am left a tad confused, there seems to be a lot of conflicting answers. From what I can gather; the consensus appears to be that this can only be achieved via third party software. The most mentioned is called Virtual Audio Cable, unfortunately it is shareware - see [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Audio_Cable:3ijrx8lj]HERE[/url:3ijrx8lj] and [url=http://software.muzychenko.net/eng/vac.htm:3ijrx8lj]HERE.[/url:3ijrx8lj]

Another way perhaps, although also costing money and reliant on your mobo specs, would be to install a second sound card.

Sorry to say, that's all I could come up with.

Cheers...Jim

I guess I'm a bit confused too -- can't you just use an [url=http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-RockStar-Headphones-splitter-mini-phone/dp/B001KWVT0C:rtsjaiww]audio splitter[/url:rtsjaiww]?

The reason a simple audio y cord is not the anwser. I have an application where the KVM is extended, the extender in use does not support audio but it does support USB. Audio is neccesary locally and the distant location. Both stations are used and have audio at both locations is desirable. Windows drivers allow one or the other but not both. The video application requires HD video and KVM extenders are few, and we own the KVM that supports usb most do not support audio directly.

Quack
