I have already been on to Creative, regarding exposing settings to Windows, reply from customer help - 'I have spoken to product development and this is not done, nor will be done in future issues'. 'I suppose this has something to do on the way audio-architecture is designed on Windows 7'
Also 'unfortunately control switch for the aux-in or line-in is only available from the SBZ control panel'.
In the SBZ control panel - mixer, all inputs have volume, mute and a settings button, in here you can adjust balance and 'listen to this device', but you cannot toggle this from anywhere else.
You can play across the Creative, in line-in, out front speaker out. Line in set as default, playback on, record off. Speakers on (not default) this just passes analog through. this all works (as a bodge, its not the way I want to do it) you can toggle playback on/off in Windows/sound/realtek speakers/properties/levels, but RR wont as its not default.
I have installed Winamp and the linein plugin. I can play the radio through Winamp.I Have set 'Winamp' and 'use Linein plugin' in config. Now in RR when I go from music to radio nothing, then i go back to music and I have radio playing. I guess this can be sorted? (yes I did test it in carwings)
As the radio is now being 'recorded' constantly, what will happen with Mobilephone.net, will the other party just hear the radio?
Have to go away working for a few days (without music), will play again next week.
get the line in plugin working outside of RR, its all about your config string
as far as mobilephone.net who knows, they shouldn't be capturing aux, only mic...
The linein plugin works fine stand alone, if I plug a MP3 player into Aux-in I can get it to play through Winamp with "line://" or "line://title=Radio,srate=44100,bps=16,nch=2"
With RR running, going from AUDIO playing to RADIO, I get radio skin and have control of radio, music pauses but no sound, can go back to AUDIO fine.
If I go into RADIO, open Winamp manually and select play - URL - line://title=Radio,srate=44100,bps=16,nch=2 then I can hear radio.
When I go back to AUDIO I get Music player skin but still hear radio with line://title=Radio,srate=44100,bps=16,nch=2 in the TAGARTIST-TAGTITLE label
Its as if RR is not sending commands to Winamp. Could it be that I am using V5? I recall you posting some time ago something like "Only a handful of people worldwide are using V5 in RR"
Away for a few days now
v5 of what?
don't hide winamp so you can see what its doing...
that line, doesn't specifiy which device to use, which means it will use the default
and which input to use...
there is more to the command line
best it to make presets
I do like
create an alias for the LINE IN or what ever its called
and make a preset called radio
and its like dev=AUXIN
you will figure it out....
Back home and sorted it thanks
V5 is Venice5 DAB Radio.
Linein command in RR Config left as default (line://title=Radio,srate=44100,bps=16,nch=2)
Set up alias "Auxin"
Set up Preset "Radio"
Aux on the ZxR daughter board has to be set to default in the Windows sound manager
