    Xonar DG Issue...

    I recently purchased a Xonar DG from Scan, but it seems the 'auto jack sensing' feature isn't working (i have the front panel audio connected to the card and have selected HD front audio in the drivers). My onboard Realtek ALC892 can detect the front ports and switch between headphones and speakers, but i have to manually select 'FP Headphones' for it to work with the Xonar... Is this a fault?

    The windows speaker properties also show 'no jack information available'... It used to display all the ports for my onboard Realtek.

    I've also just noticed the actual card itself makes an audible 'click' noise when switching between outputs... This doesn't sound normal to me.

    The clicking sound is normal. What you are hearing the relays re-routing the circuit (which is very common in high end audio products - it helps eliminate crosstalk between inputs/outputs).
    My xonar essence does it too.

    As for the headphone jack issue - are you using the latest drivers?

    Ok so the clicking is normal, that's good to hear . The only other thing i ever remember clicking is my old 4Mb Orchid 3DFX Voodoo card (this was years ago!). I'm using the latest drivers from the Asus website, but they're still old (dated some time in 2011). The DGX is the same card (with a PCIe connector instead) but has newer drivers... Have Asus given up on the DG?

    There's another annoying issue... Why are the rear speakers configured as side speakers when using 5.1 sound? I don't see any way of changing this either! The ports on the card are also labeled as side speakers... Why would Asus omit rear speaker support on a 5.1 card?


    I'm seriously considering returning this card under DSR (i've only had it a few days). Even 'Dolby Headphone' sets the rear speakers as side speakers... How am i supposed to hear whats coming up behind me in games?

    Re: Xonar DG Issue...

    I just had a look at my xonar dg and the port is labeled side too.
    Just checked dolby website and it appears Asus are correct on the labelling of the channels (who would've known? )

    http://www.dolby.com/us/en/consumer/...ide/index.html

    There is a lot of confusion on the labeling of speakers in 5.1 and 7.1 surround systems.
    In 5.1 systems the surround speakers were often called rear speakers (when actually they are usually placed in the back corners of the room).
    In 7.1 systems 2 speakers are added that go on the back wall behind you in between the corner speakers and these are now referred to as rear speakers (lots of people - including me before i googled it - thought that 2 side channels are added in 7.1).

    So Asus are correct in labeling these (the corner speakers in 5.1 are called side channels and 7.1 adds two rear channels).

    Re: Xonar DG Issue...

    If you mean that when you put your plug into the connector, it doesn't switch to headphones and vice versa, with mine the issue is that before you close/ minimize the xonar program make sure you have returned it to main as pictured below and not in effect or any other mode as in the second photo. Hope it works as this is what gives me the issue.

    You could try the Uni Xonar drivers?
