View Full Version : [ubuntu] Using two headphones simultaneously on hp dv3

January 13th, 2010, 06:39 PM

i've got an HP dv3550 notebook with two headphone jacks in the front (both works simultaneously in windows). Sound works, if i plug headphones in either jack the internal speakers are switched off. Both jacks produce sound, but, only one at a time. If i plug headphones in the right jack, internal speakers are muted and i can hear sound through the headphones. However, if i put another headphones in the left jack, the first headphones are muted.

I would like to use them simultaneously. Is there any fix available?:
