I'm trying to connect another speaker to use simultaneously with my headphones.

I have VIA on-board audio and I'm disappointed I wasn't given tools just like in Realtek in which I can click on audio jack and change it's purpose. e.g. clicking the pink audio jack, pop-up appears and I can choose speaker output.

I don't have that feature in all 3 driver versions, is there anyway to re-assign without VIA? or at least use the second audio jack as another stereo output. I'm using Windows 7.

If the driver doesn't allow jack reassignment I doubt it's possible. Your best option probably is to take a look at Via's VDeck app and see if it allows this. –  Karan Apr 28 '13 at 23:08

Perhaps even more importantly, if the hardware doesn't support it, it's impossible. Sound input uses a component known as ADC, sound output uses a DAC. A jack that can be switched needs both an ADC and a DAC. –  MSalters Apr 29 '13 at 0:08
