Hello!

The default configuration is not working to mute the line-out when I plug the headphone. I tried putting this in /boot/device.hints but without success:

Code:
hint.hdac.1.cad0.nid20.config="as=1 device=Line-out"
hint.hdac.1.cad0.nid27.config="as=2 device=Headphones"
I am indeed quite lost in those parameters. I use the speaker connected to the connector in the motherboard, and the headphone in the connector in the front of the case. I am willing to use the on-board card (ALC892).

cat /dev/sndstat
Code:
pcm0: <NVIDIA GT440 (HDMI/DP 8ch)> (play)
pcm1: <NVIDIA GT440 (HDMI/DP 8ch)> (play)
pcm2: <NVIDIA GT440 (HDMI/DP 8ch)> (play)
pcm3: <NVIDIA GT440 (HDMI/DP 8ch)> (play)
pcm4: <Realtek ALC892 (Rear Analog 7.1/2.0)> (play/rec)
pcm5: <Realtek ALC892 (Front Analog)> (play/rec) default
pcm6: <Realtek ALC892 (Rear Digital)> (play)
pcm7: <Realtek ALC892 (Onboard Digital)> (play)

seq Sequence number. A unique, per-association number used to
order pins inside the particular association. Sequence
numbers can be specified as numeric values from 0 to 15.

The sequence number 15 has a special meaning for output
associations. Output pins with this number and device
type ``Headphones'' will duplicate (with automatic mute if
jack detection is supported) the first pin in that association.
see snd_hda(4)

If you are using standard 1/8 inch audio jacks, you will want pcm4 to be your default sound device.

see FreeBSD Handbook - Sound troubleshooting.

Manufacturers "hard wire" the sound pins inconsistently. If you are lucky someone has sorted this out for your motherboard. If websearch/forum search comes up empty you can sort it out following the linked manual page.

Hi! I've tried pcm4 as default and it just works for the rear output, plug-in the headphone on the front change nothing. To use the front output I need to set pcm5 as default.

Both have seq=0 but different as={1,2}

Thanks!

FreeBSD tends to associate gpio pins based on their location. It is possible to associate the front headphones with the rear output. If the front headphones are also given a seq=15, the rear output will mute when the headphones are plugged in. There are some solved forum posts where this has been done.

Both have seq=0 but different as={1,2}
The linked man page tells how to list the gpio pin assignments (referred to as nid's in the pin listing). You should be able to solve this by searching the forums for posts on headphone muting and reviewing snd_hda(4). Basically, move the front headphone nid from as=2 to as=1 and assign it a seq=15

A small advance, but still not switching/muting but only playing from the rear jack:
