  • Easy way to mute/unmute line in ?

    Hey guys,

    I need a easy way to mute and unmute my line in on my carcomputer.

    I have my XM radio line out going into my computers line so i dont have to use a spliter on my aux in on the HU.
    So anytime i want to listen to XM radio i have to unmute the linein on my computer, which is a pain in the *** on a 7in screen. Mix and repeat to listen to mp3's again.

    So i need a easy way to mute the line in. What ultimately would be cool is if media engine would mute the line in when loaded and unmute on exit, but i need this like yesterday.

    Something ideal would be a small application that just toggles the line in mute status and i could place that on my desktop and just click it. I wonder if there is anyway to detect if there is sound comeing from wave and then just mute linein automaticly and unmute when sound from wave stops.
    I dont know, im not a programer.

    Any ideas??

    Thanks in advance

      yeah, i girder was actually my first thought on the problem, till i remembered i dont have IR on my computer. Plus the computer is in the trunk and really dont want to run anymore wires up to the cabin.

                  Hey thanks again frodo,
                  app works like a charm btw.

                  I also found a use for it in my house too. Normaly its no problem to open the volumecontrol to mute my line in, (i route all my TV audio into my computer) from my desktop but this just cateres to my laziness 2 birds-one stone

                    Sorry about the crappy icon, I didn't have one befitting such an app.

                      cool no problem, icon is fine. I got enough candy on my desktop anyway
                      plus if i ever wanted to change the icon i could just make a shortcut to it, and change the icon of the shortcut.

                          Does anyone know of a hardware line killer? With a momentary switch to toggle it? I really need something like that.. I could make it if someone had diagrams and whatnot to how to make it

                            You could just cut the input wire and put in a push button switch on the ground wire, right?
