Hello,

I was hoping someone could help me; basically what I'm looking to do is connect both my 5.1 speakers and my 5.1 headset through the same audio jacks.

I brought some splitters with my headset as I was told that I would be able to connect both devices at the same time through the same jacks, and select which one I want to use via sound control panel. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be the case, as the only sound device I have available is "Speakers", and the only way to activate my speakers is to unplug the headset (which is what I was trying to avoid in the first place). Note that I DO NOT want to use both at the same time, only that I be able to switch between my speakers and headset without having to physically change them over.

Is this possible?
