Line-In wont play back unless someone else is playing
Mobo: Intel DG45fc, built in idt audio drivers
This is the strangest problem i have EVER encountered on a pc. I current have my hd radio connected to the input monitor (line-in) on the motherboard. Ever since i bought the mobo i've had issues where i had to enable the line-in each time i wanted radio to play. Today i installed CF and noticed the only time the radio made sound in CF is when i pressed a button and heard the standard CF button click. Any button in CF made my radio sound come through.. but only for one second. This made me try a test that consisted of me opening winamp.. setting its volume to 0, then opening CF and playing the radio. IT WORKED. Soooo my question is what in God's green earth would possess a computer to behave in such a manner? Its not the HD radio i've tested other line devices and had the same result. Line-input isnt muted. I removed all other peripherals to make sure they werent conflicting. And driver updates for the IDT audio make no difference. What gives here fellas.. be creative!
