No audio with WinTV XP How to add sound

  Catastrophe 11:32 05 Dec 2006

I have silence on just installed WinTV and the fault, I am sure, is in my PC. Now using XP but was familiar with volume sliders in 98SE.

If I go Start/Accessories/Entertainment/Volume Control it says there are no active devices available. Go Control Panel>Click Printers>Other Hardware and then click Add Hardware. There is no Other Hardware.

Also if I go Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices it says No Audio Device and the rest is greyed out.

Any help in getting audio much appreciated.

Hi, I also have WinTV. Have you connected audio lead to your Sound card, assuming you have a Sound card or to audio line-in on your mobo if on-board sound.

Hi Technotiger

I recently did a full install and was thinking of other problems (same PC) and I forgot to install some stuff. I have installed SoundMAX Digital Audio and my sliders have returned. I'll check it when its finished installing the other stuff. I always thought the sliders were part of Windows.

I hope connections are OK. Soon see!

Hi Technotiger

Now working fine thanks, after a little trial and error with leads. I did have to change them around (not marked on PC and quicker than loading manual).

Great - thanks for feed-back.
