the "line in" jack should switch as a Speaker out for your rear channel.

For example, on the C-Media "onboard" you should be able to configure the I/O jacks w/software installed & enable speakers like so:

Headphones & 2spkr:
Green=Line Out/Front Speaker Out
Blue=Line In
Pink=Microphone In

Green=Line Out/Front Speakers Out
Blue=Rear Speaker Out

Green=Line Out/Front Speakers Out
Blue=Rear Speaker Out
Pink=Center/Subwoofer Speaker Out (Microphone-In disabled)

Of course, this going on what my mobo came with, yours could be similiar or totally different. All-in-all, once you load the software for your on-board sound you should be able to access the "advance" configuration options within the program but once again....:rtfm: Good Luck!!
