    Speakers AND headphones playing sound simultaneously.

    Hi all,

    I just noticed today that when I plug in my headphones, I still hear sound through my laptop speakers.

    I'm on an HP pavillion, running ubuntu 9.10 and I use rhythmbox as my media player.

    Thanks!

    Re: Speakers AND headphones playing sound simultaneously.

    I'm running Kubuntu 9.10 and it behaves exactly the same. And I'm happy about this because it means that I can control the volume of both my headphones/headset and my speakers myself. On the rare occasion that I use Windows, I don't get this choice; it thinks that if I plug in the headphones, I don't want the sound coming out of the speakers.

    But I want to leave my headset plugged into the front of my PC so that I can handle skype calls by simply switching on the mic. And I have the option to leave the speaker volume up so that others in the room can hear both sides of the conversation, or to mute it if it's private.

    Re: Speakers AND headphones playing sound simultaneously.

    Hi there,

    I actually agree, except there are times when i don't' want others to hear what I'm listening to. I've looked around and can't find where to turn the speakers down without turning the headphones down also.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Brett

    Usually, this means you need to specify a model keyword in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf so jack sensing will work properly.

    thanks for the reply. What do I do to specify the model keyword?

    Re: Speakers AND headphones playing sound simultaneously.

    It depends on your computer model and audio codec.
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
    Add a line like the following:
    Code:
    options snd_hda_intel model=hp-dv5
    Use this to figure out what codec you have:
    Code:
    aplay -l
    model could be one of the following:

    this is what I see when I type aplay -l in the command terminal.
