    just to be clear, i do not use onboard audio, or the andrea mic, so most of this is what i have seen--

    i believe that the andrea mic cancels noise by comparing the incoming signal(mic input) with the output(headphone jack). so without a output, it has no idea what is making noise/echo, and can't remove it from the audio.

    you should be able to connect the andrea, and then run it as a aux in to the pc, but because you already have the hd radio on that input, you might need to get creative-- either by using a headphone jack splitter to combine the audio inputs(in this case, the andrea, and hd radio would be audible at the same time), or by getting one of mitches 4 port audio adapters(which i think should work for this, but can't be sure).

    Makes sense...


    soundman what are you using to turn your amp on ?? PSU, relay or ??

    I'm asking because when I start the vehicle I get nasty hissing through the speakers up until windows starts or resumes from hibernation... I also get the nasty Bios beep in the begining. I'm using my m2atx to run the amp at the moment

    i jumped off the radios acc line for my amps.

    while it is a pain, you could add a switch, and then just turn the amp on and off after the computer is started.

    otherwise, look you might be able to use a desiel timer to delay that amp turn on.

    You can get a PSU with an amp turn-on that is delayed, or use a fusion brain to turn on the amp so that way it wont turn on till the drivers are initiated in windows.

    i believe that the andrea mic cancels noise by comparing the incoming signal(mic input) with the output(headphone jack). so without a output, it has no idea what is making noise/echo, and can't remove it from the audio.
    It can cancel noise w/o using the output on the Andrea card, but it needs the output for echo cancellation

    If you are inputting the HD radio then you would be better off to use the line-in.

    Read through This Thread and see the trial and errors I went through getting 2 sound cards (one being the Andrea) to work together with all the proper outputs and echo / noise cancellations. I have multiple input into my PC so i used Mitch's UAS to switch between inputs and programmed my skin to do it automatically for me, but you can just use a splitter and tie both soundcard outputs into the amp.

    I have a similar setup, and right now I'm not using the Andrea's echo cancellation because XM/HDradio take priority over echo cancellation. I already have a UAS, so I think that's the direction I want to go. Have you run into any hurdles using the UAS in this fashion? Do you have any voice events, etc. set up? If so, how do you handle these?
