    Anyone have this issue? I have a 2008 Mac Pro and plugging in the headphone jack does not disable the Line Out like any other Windows machine does as well as under OS X.

    Also there is a high amount of hiss coming from the line out and headphone out under Windows 7 x64, but there is no hiss under OS X. Must be the ugly Windows drivers.

    PS here is how my playback devices look, there is no setting for headphones at all.

    Hiss has been fixed by downloading the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers from their website. But still, the headphone jack does not disable the line out :(
