    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!

    Not to hijack your thread, but are u using XP or Vista? I can't seem to even enable line-in with vista...which has resulted in using the MIC in port. I doubt it's as clear, but maybe it's something you can try.

    remember windows mixers have:

    a record input selector
    and a playback input mixer

    now, on a typical playback input mixer, you can enable(unmute) line in and HEAR its audio... some people have line in hidden in the mixer... advanced... and show the line-in

    then there is the RECORD side, which u CANNOT HEAR, it must be captured


    some soundcards only have LINE-IN on record side....

    so CF will capture that, and the winamp line inplug in will to.. (riderunner)


    now High Def audio IS NOT supported by XP (UAA support), until u install a update from MS
    also... since they now support complete jack reconfig. you NEED to have the manfucatures drivers installed!!! do not rely on any basic drivers on XP

    this: AUD_ALLOS_6224_PV_IDTGUI_V178.exe needs to be installed

    download drivers

    assuming that you are using the line in for the radio then in the RR config program under the radio section tell it to mute/unmute the Input Monitor instead of Wave.

    are you using the line input 1/8" mini jack port? This is what I am assuming you are using and I'm using the same thing.

    You want to manually unmute the WAVE channel and leave it unmuted all the time. The WAVE channel is used for most of you sounds and programs that occur in windows so when you mute it you will lose everything. If you are getting sound out of the radio then you are using the right input settings. But to mute it you have to mute the INPUT MONITOR channel in order to mute just the radio.

    Hope this helps. If you are using a different setup than that then I guess I can't be of much help to you.
