Hello,

I have asus z390-i gaming motherboard https://rog.asus.com/us/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-z390-i-gaming-model/helpdesk_download. Recently I started having issue - all of the sudden with 2 audio outputs showing as one, so I can't switch between speakers (rear jack) and headphones (front jack). I tried like 5 different drivers, but nothing helps. There is no checkbox in Sonic Studio 3 to separate audio streams, it didn't work anyways in Realtek Audio Console. Only way if this works is if I uninstall Realtek audio drivers, but not having installed audio drivers cause stutter in some games! While previously it worked fine even with Realtek drivers, it started all of the sudden! It started with a weird issue, sometimes wrong audio device was playing instead intended one... Here is original thread: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?129237-Sound-coming-out-of-wrong-device-not-playing-(2-sound-outputs)

EDIT: hmmm I put back drivers (which I had installed) and it works for now, but these are same drivers with the issue started to happen in the first place! I also deleted (I had many grey speakers/headphones in device manager) but I doubt it is related!
