Thanks Alan - I tried to find useful resources but couldn't, I did make
better progress with alsa and created a virtual soundcard - however, I
couldn't get both channels through my headphones, they are
microsoft lx-3000 ones which I'm guessing may not be able to handle/cope
with both channels at once?

Thanks Pete - I think I may have to purchase one of these and get some
standard 3.5mm headphones - can you confirm if then you can actually get
the main output and the headphone output through the same set of headphones
at the same time please?
