So I bought a pair of HP speakers yesterday (not sure of the model yet). When running via a live cd of natty, I can use my old(er) CA speakers in the rear jack and use the new ones in the front with no problems. However, when I try to use them both on my install, I get silence. If I unplug one, the other works. I tried looking through alsamixer, but that was confusing and I wouldn't know what to change. Also, the "Hardware" tab in gnome-volume-control doesn't show an option for 2 output/1 input. My hardware (I believe) is an Intel ICH700 (or could be 500) on and Abit IS7 motherboard. Is there a way to get sound from both sets at once? Thanks in advance for your help.
