RE: Headset plugged in front jack not working
To add to the info -
I can see 2 playback devices, first is "Speakers" whose properties show 4
rear panel 3.5 mm jacks in jack info. This one when set, sounds rear speakers
only. Another is "Digital output device (SPDIF)" which shows rear panel RCA
jack in jack info and this device when set doesn't really produce any sound
from both headset and rear speakers.
Recording devices do show front panel microphone (along with rear
microphone, line in and digital input device) but with a red colored down
arrow on the icon and the configure button too is disabled.
