Sound Output Switch doesn't works

Line-out(Back panel port) and Headphone (Front panel port) works fine when single output device is connected. But, if i connect 2 devices in those ports, only get output from Headphone. Even i switch my output to lineout from settings none of my devices give output. Changing back to headphone gives output from headphone.

Please post your garuda-inxi. We'll need it to take a look at what sound packages and drivers you have installed. Definitely a requirement in this (and almost all) cases as stated in the forum post template.

Do you get sound from the other device if the headphones are removed?

Some folks have experienced issues running both of these servers simultaneously. If you are not running the PulseAudio server for a specific reason, I would suggest disabling it and troubleshooting from just PipeWire.

If you are not using it, try disabling JamesDSP. There have been several reports recently of JamesDSP disrupting normal audio function.

I've had differing results based on profiles, maybe try switching the profile around? I've had headsets magically work after swapping profiles.

Now my line-out works. But, after connecting headphone, no sound at all. I am using Pro Audio profile.

Disabled....
