    D-Link DSB-R100 through mic jack?

    Unfortunatly my laptop only has a headphone and mic jack, and no line in. So far I have been unsucessful in trying to get things to work this way using the built in RR support.

    I know the mic is working fine because if I run RR and tune to a station, then do the "Test Hardware" in the sound settings, it shows that it is receiving audio through the port, it's just that nothing is coming out of the speakers. I have a Dell laptop with Sigmatel audio drivers.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can use the mic jack for the radio receiver; short of buying a USB sound card with a line-in?

    I assume you have un-muted the mic in the output section of the sound mixer? Pretty sure you also need a plug-in for winamp to get this to work as well if you don't already have it. Its been a while since I did this and I gave up on it because of poor reception so my memory is a bit vague on it.

    Yea, it's un-muted and receiving sound just fine. It's just that my laptop does not replay the output from the mic through the speakers to try to prevent feedback when using things like Skype. Unfortunately with no line-in, I'm stuck that way.
