    most of the time wouldn't you go from the computer to the USB DAC then to your amplifier/eq/etc?
    Ok, I'm not trying to go from the DAC back to the computer. I want to go from the Sirius line-out to the line-in on the computer and then have all of that go out on the DAC to my HU, etc...

    I'm not sure how to post images but I made the wiring diagram and am attempting to attach it to this post. I hope that helps.Name:  diagram.JPG

    Was very clear to me from your first post in fact.

    The winamp plugin works for what you're trying to do. In fact, it records the line-in to memory and plays it through wav of the play device.

    This solution I read somewhere else on here and it worked well aparently.

    Good luck!

    If JC-S60 is correct, then that's what you'll have to do. That 'Test Hardware' function is literally recording from one input and playing back through another. If that's what winamp does, then you'll be able to do it that way. Otherwise you'll have to find a utility or application that does it.

    There's no EASY native way in windows to do what you're doing 'all the time'

    Ok, I did the winamp thing and it sorta works. I can hit play and the visualizer indicates that there is input and varies with what the input should be. It doesn't route it to the speakers though. When I play an mp3 file it plays fine. Any ideas?

    Bringing this back to see if anyone has a solution.

    I have:

    PC -> USB DAC -> 3sixty.2 -> AMP

    I would like to run my HD radio through the line in on the PC and out to the DAC.

    I can use the AUX on the 3sixty.2 for now, but I'd like to find a better solution using WMP.
    Is there something like the line in plug in for WMP?

    I just got this working correctly using the software "virtual audio cable" found @ http://software.muzychenko.net/eng/vac.html and my hippo bloat dac. My next step is to automate this with roadrunner and girder so that its seemless behind the scenes whenever the radio button is pressed ... wish me luck

    Addendum To My last Post... I just pulled this from Virtual Audio Cables help file....

    Command line switches
    Audio Repeater accepts several command-line switches, allowing to pre-configure it:

    /Input:<str>
    /Output:<str>
    /SamplingRate:<num>
    /BitsPerSample:<num>
    /Channels:<num>
    /ChanCfg:<str>
    /BufferMs:<num>
    /Buffers:<num>
    /Priority:<str>
    /AutoStart
    Switch names are case-insensitive. <Num> means a number, <str> means a string. Specify switch values as you see these parameters in Audio Repeater window.

    If a string contains spaces or other special characters, enclose it in double quotes. If a string contains national characters that don't exist in a console code page, create a command (batch) file, placing a command line into it, and insert CHCP command before the command line. See Windows Help and Support for CHCP command description.

    The custom channel configuration switch has the following format:

    /ChanCfg:custom=<num>

    where <num> is a hexadecimal channel mask as defined for the KSAUDIO_CHANNEL_CONFIG.

    You can create a shortcut for Audio Repeater or invoke it from a batch (command) file to achieve better automation. In a batch file, use Start command (type "start /?" in the Windows Command Prompt window for explanation) to start several instances simultaneously.

    I just have to set this up to turn audiorepeater on when radio button is pressed and close it when switched to another source button. Once I get this all setup I will be quite happy with the end result. As for right now I am manually switching it over whenever I listen to the radio. That should be fixed in a couple days though

    I now have this working 110% behind the scenes and seemless with Ride Runner. If anyone needs any help setting it up post up or PM me.

    Hey Preston ... I have a Directed HD & a USB DAC wired the same as you & it work's perfectly in Centrafuse. Centrafuse is passing the input of the on-board soundcard to the USB DAC ... no additional cabling or routing software required. When I get a chance I'll check my settings & let you know.

    EDIT:

    I'm using an LF2 board + HotAudio USB DAC 'Straight', Centrafuse settings are:

    AM/FM Radio
    ------------
    Device: HDRadio
    Record Line In Device: Realtek HD Audio Input - Line Volume
    Playback Line In Device: None
