I'm having problems getting XM input to come through ANY of these front ends. I have an in car pc with only line out, headphone, and microphone jacks. Using line out to goto amps and microphone to input the XM signal from the XM direct box. I have gone into sounds in control panel and made sure that the only sound card available is indeed selected as the playback and recording device and also that under recording in volume controls microphone is selected as the input device. I goto any of these front ends and .... nothing. I have complete control of the XM Direct box thru the USB cable and can change channels and see signal strength and everything. But no sound. Now the only exception to this is when i use Frodo's XM player... not his whole frontend but just his player. When I use it a large amount of distortion comes through the speakers and a very very very poor quality sounding xm can be heard... sounds like it's being played on a phonograph. Just aweful. Mind you mp3's movies and everything else play beauifully. And if i take the rca's coming out of the xm direct box and plug them directly into the amps it sounds wonderful...I have no volume control... but sounds great. So at this point i figure maybe it's the microphone jack so I've gone out and gotten 2 other usb devices. 1. is a philips usb external sound card with line in and mic in and 2. is just a usb to RCA input box I found. Both of these devices I installed and selected as the recording devices in volume control and in the sound properties under control panel and now not even frodo's player will play anything. I've used every front end I can find on this site and configured them (through there gui's mind you) to use my com 3 for xm connection and when given the option in the gui Line in or mic depending on what i was trying and nothing will pick up the signal. Can anyone give me a suggestion of what i'm doing wrong here? Maybe a front end i've tried that we know works with xm well and maybe i'm just not doing something like modifying an .ini file or something... Any opinions most appreciated
