SB Live 5.1 "What you hear" option unclicks in recording play control

Q: SB Live 5.1 "What you hear" option unclicks in recording play control

Second time I've tried to post this. First try disappeared.
I have a big, fast 1 1/2 year old HP with a SB Live 5.1 upgrade. I use the "WHAT YOU HEAR " recording option all the time, but recently the check mark frequently disappears and nothing is recorded. I use two different programs to record; ABSOLUTE MP3 RECORDER and ROSOFT AUDIO RECORDER (registered version.) I have reinstalled the software to no avail. Any answers to my problem would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: SB Live 5.1 "What you hear" option unclicks in recording play control

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Have a SB0770 card that I got working with help from the good people here. When I go to Audio Creation mode the only recording source listed is Digital-in. I want to record what I can hear through the speakers (eg internet radio, WMP library files, Atmosphere Ambient music.)

In Multi Channel Wave I can control the speaker volume in Playback mode but there is no movement of the VU meters in Record mode.

Will simply connecting Line out/Spkr to Line in work? I would like to use a splitter so speakers still work or will this create a feedback loop?

In Windows the recording inputs available are Digital in and Microphone. I guess I would need to switch to Microphone in Win as default recording source.

Hope someone can help.

A while back, I installed Creative MediaSource on my old PC, and could do "What U Hear" recording (recording exactly what would come out of the speakers). Now, I have installed CMS on my new PC (from the SAME disk), and I can't do "What U Hear" Recording. What gives? Can someone help me to do "What U hear" recording on my new computer?

Hi Kenmcfa

In case it's just a small detail you might have missed in the setup, here are some guides and question-and-answer pages from Creative -- in case you haven't seen these yet.

Otherwise, I guess we'll have to wait for a user or tech who has experience with your program [I'm more familiar with Pro Tools on the Mac (my brother-in-law is a recording engineer) - so this is the first I've heard of Creative's program. . . . Looks pretty useful, from the info on their site]

Using W7 and unlike XP it does not provide an option/function to directly record sound playing on PC (i.e what u hear). Is there a way to reinstate this function in W7. Some answers on google talk about enabling "stereo mixer" device in sound section. I do not have that option. Others suggest downloading latest driver for onboard sound card. I have an ASUS P5KPL/1600 motherboard which according to manual has a CODEC sound card. In "sound devices" default sound is showing as AK5371. Any help would be appreciated.

When previously on WIN 7 Pro 64 bit I was able to record with Audacity what ever was coming out the speakers using the "What U Hear" feature of my sound card (Creative PCIe X-Fi Titanium).

Having upgraded and subsequently a clean install of WIN 10 Pro 64 bit this no longer works. I have downloaded the latest Creative driver for the sound card (which shows correctly in Device Manager) right clicking the sound icon in System Tray and selecting "What U Hear" as default recording device same within Audacity itself.

I have noticed that within Control Panel - Devices and Printers that "What U Hear" actually shows up as a device and I don't recall this being the case with WIN 7. If I right click on this icon - Properties - Hardware - Properties - Driver it shows as a Windows Driver rather than Creative. Could this be the problem.

Anyone else having problems with Audacity and WIN 10 and specifically recording "What U Hear"?

A:Audacity and recording "What U Hear"

This must be specific to Creative. I have Realtek and "Stereo Mix" but its working properly. I just tested it with Audacity and working properly. Stereo Mix does not show up as a device.

First off, I'm wondering if this is an issue related solely to my laptop, or if it might just be a Vista issue; I have a Toshiba P305D-S8995E laptop, and when I right-click the speaker icon in the system tray and select "recording devices", it only shows "Microphone" as an available option. I would like to have the option to record whatever audio is passing through the soundcard similar to the way I do it on my Win XP computers, therefore I assume I'm looking for some sort of "Line In" recording option. So is not having a "line in" option an issue with my laptop's soundcard, or is this a Vista issue? Thanks in advance for any help.

My sound card is a sigmatel codec.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

I have read quite a few threads talking about this both here and elsewhere and none of them seem to give me any advice that both applies to my specific situation and resolves the issue.

I am using an XFX 5770 card with a dual monitor setup and would like to be able to run theater mode l did in the past on my old system with a 4650 card (XP installed on the old system).

The two monitors are the same that I used on the old system when the theater mode worked as are the cables (HDMI to a 52" Samsung and DVI adaptor to VGA cable for a small regular monitor). Since the cabling and the monitors are the same as they had been when it was working on the other system I ruled them out the cause of the trouble.

I have tried the 10.6 and 10.5 CCC versions and nothing seems to work.

Here is a screen grab of what the CCC looks like for me without the theater mode option:

Ok, so that may sound weird, but i'm trying to figure it out, let me walk you through my network:
1 PC, 1 Laptop, and 1 Samsung SmartTV
So, I have most of my movies on the PC, I can access them from the TV smart hub, or just right click on the file on the PC and "Play To"; it all looks good.
Except for certain files when I try to use "Play To" on them i get the "Failed to retrieve media information from media server"; and i can't see these files/folders from my TV menu, so far, it could be a problem with the file itself.

Here's where it gets weird; when i move the file to my laptop, and I try doing the exact same, it works like charm.

Please note that:
My PC runs Win7 Ultimate - 32 bit with 2 GB of ram
and Laptop runs Win7 Ultimate - 64x with 4 GB of ram, though i don't think it makes a difference.

Any ideas?

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

Hi
Some time ago I purchased a samsung bluray player. The main reason was to get a 24fps capable netflix client, but it was also partly to get a media renderer compatible with Windows 8 (and 8.1) Play To/Play functionality.
While the "Play" functionality works in internet explorer (videos played OK, pictures shown in the center of the screen in low resolution) and so-so (for videos) in a 3rd party modern UI picasa viewer, I simply can't get it to work in the MS photos or videos apps nor can I get it to work for pictures in the mentioned 3rd party picasa viewer, "Picasapp". When I select devices in the mentioned apps I'm simply told something like "the app is not able to stream to any device at the moment" (I have a danish version of Windows and I can't remember the exact phrase so it's translated from memory).
As far as I can see the bluray player is a Windows certified media renderer so at the moment I'm quite stuck.
I would appreciate any help or pointers you can give me.

The "Idle-time Full System Scan" in Norton 360 v4 is bogging down my computer constantly, and there is no option to turn it off in "Automatic Tasks".

I contacted Norton and (after several attempts to find someone at Norton who could understand what I just said above and getting "hung-up" on over Norton chat. Inexcusable!!!) I was able to get a hold of a technician who told me that Norton intentionally removed this option "for security reasons, because they didn't want people turning it off".

The problem is, people will then be forced to turn it off by turning off ALL scheduled tasks (under "Settings/Scheduling/Schedule:Manual Schedule") and that is an even worse security problem than the relatively small one that would be created by turning off idle-time full system scanning.

Once the system has completed a full system scan, all files are on-access scanned anyway, so running a full system scan every 3-4 days is rather silly and extremely annoying--especially, because it will continue to try to run every time the system is idle if you cancel it.

A warning urging the user to not turn off idle-time full system scans without fully understanding the risks, and after explaining the risks, would be VERY preferable. Or at least the option to run the full system scans when the system is idle on a certain day of the month/week! The schedule for idle-time full system scans really needs to be separate from other tasks. In fact, t... Read more

We used to have "stereo mix" option that enabled streaming audio recording without having to have the audio playing through the speakers. How do I do that now? What replaces that capability? Who makes my sound card? Why is that not readily available somewhere in Dell land? I can't believe forum searching found pretty much nothing on this.

A:Need to get rid of "Live Safety Center" and "Online Security Guide"

I did follow MicroBell's 5 Step process and the Panda scan said that no virus could be found. However, my Avast anti-virus warned me 5-6 times about files while I was running the Panda virus scanning. One of them was named "win.exe" and was in C:\temp\ but has now been deleted. Every time Avast issued a virus alert I chose the option to delete the file in question.

Hey,
I have a HP Pavilion notebook. A bit older I think. It had built in windows Vista Home Premium. Somehow my hard disk crashed and I bought a new one. I installed windows 7 ultimate 32 bit and updated to service pack 1. I made a system image using windows default recovery console. Everything was fine. But today I needed to restore my computer to a previous restore point. Every time I press F8 to get to the advanced boot option I see everything is okay except the "repair your computer" option. Somehow the "repair your computer" option disappeared. I tried ctrl+F11 button and the F11 button too. F11 button worked for my previous vista home premium but for Win-7 it's the F8 key. Can anyone help me with this please? How may I get the "repair your computer" option back? Is there any way to edit advanced to boot option to get that option back? I would be needing it in case of system image recovery. Please I don't want to reinstall the O/S once again. Please somebody help me.

A:Advanced boot option doesn't show the option "repair your computer"!

On my clean OS install, the "repair your computer" option also does not appear in the F8 Advanced Boot Options list.
The option does appear on my ACER PC.

You can access this option by booting from a System Repair CD/DVD. A system repair CD is a must have.

Recently my computer has been very slow in logging in and shutting down. Also my computer has been freezing for atleast 20 seconds or more until I have to just shut it down. I also found last night that my Malawarebytes scanner found this "Rogue Installer" which I deleted. My computer is still running slow to shutdown so I'm not sure if this program is still in. Actually, for a few months I had been having some trouble(intrusions) with some type of virus.

Today, I wanted to try to clean the computer on Safe mode. I tried numerous of times by clicking fast or holding down the f8 key for safemode but nothing happens.

My second option was mscongfig box but I found there was no "BOOT. INI" option. I'm not sure if there is a way to restore this option? If not, is there an easier option to generate safemode? Thanks

Hello everyone,

I've run into an issue that I can't seem to find answer to on the net.

When I open My Computer, Control Panel or any folder no files or directories display, after first there is a green loading bar on the address bar and little magnifying glasses (searching icon) on the left side directories but never displays anything.

The files I can see in other folders are unable to be opened and have white blank page icons next to them.

I can still run application so I'm not sure what the issue is. I ran a scan for virus with nothing found and I have also ran a windows update but have not restarted my PC yet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

I thought I was computer savvy until this problem came up. When I double click my computer, recycle bin, control panel, etc, the hourglass comes up for a few seconds, goes off, and nothing else. No error messages or anything, just nothing. I have viewed a few of the threads covering this and a common link was the hijack this result. I have posted that here, and really hope that someone can help me with this. I have run SpyBotSD and adaware, I have run mutiple virus scans, I did a SFC, and the final thing was to repair windows using the original disk, none of which has help. I am running Window XP w/SP2. Any other suggestions would be certainly appreciated. Hope to here from someone soon. MTCS, out.

New to the forum, hoping to find answers or new ideas to try...
My Win7 OS computer has problems seeing my WD network drives most of the time. I'll say up front that my Macbook, my Windows XP laptops, all other computers of various types in my house see and access these drives just fine, but the one with Windows 7 Pro will not. It occasionally will see and access them for short periods of random time though, which really has me baffled. These drives are right on the same network switch as the Win7 computer.

The scenario goes like this:click on the drive name to view contents... 20 or so seconds pass, popup says "Windows cannot access \\drive-name".
I try the second NAS drive, same thing.
I try the "diagnose" feature to no avail. I've even explored some of the "explore additional options" suggestions to no avail.
I can ping the IP addresses of both these drives all day long and they respond without fail.
Weird thing is that very occasionally I will click the drive and the file folders show up and I can transfer files, or whatever I want, for a short random period of time.
I swear, this problem is driving me crazy! I've been resorting to using a flash drive to transfer files on this computer's HD to the WD network drives via an XP OS computer, or via the Macbook. I like Windows 7 other than this very frustrating problem.
Soooo... any ideas or suggestions? Anyone else have this issue and figured it out??
TIA for any and all comment... Read more

have you tried to access it via the IP address rather than hostname? It may be DNS causing an issue

Do you have a recovery restore install disc or partition?
You can try doing a repair or system file check...
Scan For Missing/Corrupt System Files...

Windows XP comes with a wonderful tool called System File Checker (SFC)
Itscans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer...
To Do This:
Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:
SFC /scannow
And then click OK
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..
You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.
Notes....
I have been asked if it is possible to have a "progress meter" show when SFC runs... This is the registry hack you need. PLEASE do not go messing with your registry if you do NOT know what you are doing!
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

I have ripped all of my movies to my hard drive and I now use my computer for play back (HTPC). The problem is I get a "jumping" sensation and a kind of "line" across the picture. My video card is an ATI HD 4670. I'm using both Windows Media Player and VCL player and both show the same results. There is no "skip" in the playback (it plays back smoothly). It is just the "jump" in picture.

Hi guys i inserted my brother's usb/pen drive /stick in to my computer a week before and just after inserting the pen drive a dialogue box or screen appeared which says ''gotcha you" and "you are in my control".

this same virus caused my brother's laptop to go haywire around two months ago.it slowed the whole OS of that laptop like opening media player took like a couple of minutes also the mouse cursor acted weirdly.so i had to format the laptop's hard drive and reinstall XP.

now i am worried this virus slowing my pc down too.but i really don't want to format and reinstall my XP as all my games and programs are installed and finely tuned.

so anybody knows what is name of this virus/Trojan/spy ware(?) and which anti virus software can successfully detect,remove/delete it from my pc?
I already tried AVG free edition but it can't even detect it and again please tell me the name of this virus if you know so that when the right anti virus software detects it i can delete or remove it with certainty.

thanks for reading my big post
