  • Microphone feedback on XM?

    When I have my USB microphone selected under control panel> sounds it works fine for recognition, etc. However when I go to XM radio in RR I get a super high pitched squeal.

    The XM goes to the line in on my soundcard, and I'm having RR unmute that line obviously. The Mic is USB.

    When I change the mic in the control panel to be the built in mic line in port (which has nothin plugged in) the XM radio sounds perfect.

    Obviously the mic is causing this high pitched squeal feedback somehow, but it doesn't do it any other time than XM play (mp3s work great, etc), and if the mic is disabled or unplugged XM works great.

    So what's goin on, and how do I fix it?

    Are you using the Line In Plugin ? or not ?

    I can understand the problem if you DO use the line in plugin, otherwise I have no idea. Maybe you should verify that the Mic is Mute for PLAYBACK.

      Yeah I am using the line in plugin.. i was under the impression that it was required for XM. Is there any way to have XM work without it?

      Where would I check the "Mic is Mute for PLAYBACK." ?

      Thanks for the reply.

        The line in plugin records from the DEFAULT recording source and plays back to the DEFAULT sound card. Basically, if you have the Mic set to record and have the line in installed, you'll be recording from the mic and playing it back and getting it back in the mic, and it will do what you're saying. You need to either stop using the line in plugin (and leave the sound card play the line in directly -- this depends on your sound card, it may not be possible for you), or make sure the Line IN is set as your record line -- this will prevent you from using the microphone for recording. Sorry but seems you're stuck...

        Those options are all controlled SOLELY by the windows mixer: Start->Programs->Accessories->Entertainment->Volume control. There are settings for Playback and for Recording -- you need to check them out and make sure you understand how they work. Sorry I don't have the time to explain it more than that.

          Sounds like a problem with the linein plugin. No need to go into more detail on the advanced sound stuff - I got that all fine. If I unmute my linein plugin in windows it plays the xm radio just fine.. it's only when RR plays it that the high pitched squeal is added, so it must be that line in plugin that for some reason is mixing both the USB mic (being selected as the hardware in audio properties in control panel) and the line in that the xm is coming in to as well..

          So no one out there runs both a mic and XM?

            Search for AutoMute. I made that little program to mute microphone input automatically

              Oh yeh... the mute on the mic merely means that the microphone will not be broadcast through the speakers. It will not affect SAPI

                  Install Frodocomm. Set the service launcher to launch automatically at startup.

                  Enjoy

                    Do I need to set both automute and frodo service launcher to go at startup or just the service launcher and that controls automute?

                      Both should go into startup folder, as automute requires the service launcher be active. Probably a good idea to put a delay on the automute. There's a few programs online that will delay startup of an app.

                        Sweet, thanks. I resume from hibernate most the time so that shouldn't be a problem. I'll mess with it tomorrow, I've got them downloaded now, but I'm supposed to be cramming for a Constitutional Law final right now.

                          I thought you're studying philosophy. Constitutional law is what is now required to become a supreme court justice. Hmmmmmmm....

                              Well, if I'm wrong, I usually remember the right answer
                              I originally thought you were an engineer

                              I also plan to go into business, but I'll probably major in something else
