    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

    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

    I'm THAT good

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