I thought I understood how audio works in Windows... Let me start from ground zero and work forward.

The system is a MSI Fuzzy GM965 motherboard with an integrated Realtek ALC888 7.1 channel audio device. I've got a clean instal of Windows 7 Home Premium, all the latest Windows updates and drivers. I have the front speakers (green), rear speakers (black), and the HDRadio line in (blue) connected and identified in the Realtek driver. The HDRadio is connected to COM1 (9pin serial connection). Using HDRadio PCR.exe I can controll the HDRadio. I am only able to hear the radio if I launch Control Panel / Sound and on the Recording tab under the properties of Line In I must select "Listen to this device" on the Listen tab. Without this being checked, I do not hear the radio audio.
From here I can do an install of RR (7/11). Update rr.ini Radio section:
Running RR, I am only able to hear the Radio audio when "Listen to this device" is slected in the linein properties of the sound settings. Without it selcted, no radio audio. All other audio works fine regardless of this selection. (I get a beep when a button is pressed and I can hear MP3's regardless of the "Listen to this device" setting.)
With previous posts indicating "Listen to this device" should not be selected, how does the radio audio work? It makes senes (to me) that since the line 1 is being identified as the radio input that RR should be activating this line in when the radio is selected and deactivating it when the radio is not being played. Do I understand this correctly?
If that is how it should be working, then it appears that either RR is not selecting the line properly or the driver is not working correctly when RR does activte the line in. If this is workinf for others, I would tend to belive it is something related to my hardware or software setup.
I can move the line in from the blue and connect to the pink. Update radioline=2 and get the same rsults.
