Bumping an old topic.I also got this to work with Realtek HD Audio Manager.There is an option in the settings: 'Make front and rear output devices play two different audio streams simutaneously.'Check that and you're good.
Multiple audio outputs are not supported by windows 7. It is by design.
Some hardware supports it; however you may need to contact the computer manufacturer for checking the possibilities.

I am surprised this works as AFAIA Realtek is only capable of streaming a single stereo source at any one time, not two. For those who claim to have this working, a question :
- are you splitting up the stereo signal
- or do you have a second audio device (virtual or physiscal) installed.
I get the impression you maybe splitting up a 5:1 or 7:1 signal, which is not the same as outputting separate sources. Skype, BTW, can only use normal "stereo".
Games can use mutiple ouputs. So you would be able to have the game out of the back speakers and Skype out of the front, ie splitting up the 5:1 or 7:1 signal. That is not the same as routing two separate source signals.
PS : before anyone accuses me of calling them liars, I'm simply intrigued as to how they set it all up. S'all.
i was able to solve it by setting the option "Device advance settings" from the top right corner of the realtek utility software, it opens up a lets you choose to either mute the back panel jacks when pluggin into the front panel or see them as separate devices, with the last one you can set either one to be default communication option, so software like skype will use this instead of the back connected speakers.Hi broken1000,
