I hope this is the right forum to ask. I have a computer with Windows 8.1. It has mini jacks on the back for line in, line out, rear left & right, side left & right, and center/subwoofer. I'd been using the line out for computer speakers. Now I have the line out going to a stereo amplifier. I want to have the option of using the external computer speakers too.
I know I could do this with a splitter, but is there a better way? I've tried the computer speakers in all of the other outputs. I went to Control panel/sound/playback tab/speakers/configure. I tested the speakers in all of the other outputs, and the test works. However, the normal computer sound (which is now going to the stereo amp) doesn't come out of the computer speakers in any combination.
Is there a way to set it up so I can use either?
