I have a turntable connected to my PC via the line in socket, with the intention of converting vinyl to WAV files. This was working OK, but I did a restore on the PC a while ago, and now I'm not getting any sound through. There is probably something muted somwhere, but not in Sounds and Audio Devices within Control Panel. I'm on Windows XP Media Centre. Can anyone think of anywhere else I should check?
Right Click on the Speaker icon in the System Tray. (Where the clock is). Click on Adjust Audio Properties. Then Click on the Audio Tab. Then Click on Volume in the Sound Recording Section and make sure the Line In has a tick in the box. Note only one item can be selected at a time here.
Stuartli: I also use Skype ( using the Mic ) as well as doing Video Capture ( using Line In ) so therefore I have reason to use both Recording and speech and therefore I know I am right. I suggest you check it out.
I suspect that whether only one input or multiple inputs can be selected depends on which sound card is used. My sound card is a very basic Creative AudioPCI, and that definitely only allows one input to be selected at a time.
