Stereo Mix Via High Definition not picking up sound.

Q: Stereo Mix Via High Definition not picking up sound.

Using an analog stereo connection cable, a main USB connector and (Headphone) via high definition as default playback device, I want to use Stereo mix (Which is enabled and supposedly working, not muted and up to date) to play sounds in Skype calls. I checked out the recording devices and the green bars for stereo mix are not moving when sound is playing.

My friend on the other hand has the same head set using the same analog stereo cable and playback settings, but is able to play sounds in the Skype call.

Preferred Solution: Stereo Mix Via High Definition not picking up sound.

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.)

A: Stereo Mix Via High Definition not picking up sound.

Doing some research on that motherboard, I see it has RealTek HD Audio.

I'm not sure exactly what you are hooking up. "Using an analog stereo connection cable, a main USB connector and (Headphone)". Can you explain a little more on exactly what you have?

With a mix of analog conections and USB it can be a problem (I have a recording studio and use both).

Hi All,
This forum is my last hope for solving my problem.
I have HP Pavilion dv7 1270us , which came with Windows Vista x64. I've managed to watch DVD Movies and Blu-ray discs through the HDMI-output, having multichannel audio as well (5.1)
I thought that it was time for a Windows upgrade. 2 weeks ago I've purchased a copy of Windows 7 Professional, formatted my hard drive and installed my new Windows. After that I browsed HP's driver page to download my missing drivers.
Everything looked good, except the fact that I cannot output multichannel audio to my amplifier now.

Firstly, I thought that this could be a codec issue, but it wasn't. This is what I've found in my Sound settings - Windows says that my High Definition audio supports only 2 channels:



As you can see from the screen the HD driver is from Microsoft, which is strange (I think it should be signed by HP?). Somewhere I read that Windows 7 supports only 2 channels for HDMI by default, because the driver is a generic one. When trying to update the driver, the system says that it is the best one.

I've been searching Google for days for a solution. I found that a lot of people are having similar problems (though on different configurations) but I never read a proper solution to this problem.
Please help!

I am working on an HP p6557 computer, and trying to use the stereo mix option to record all sounds played by my computer to help record skype conversations with Audacity. I have installed all my sound drivers and updated my computer in all the ways needful to enable the Stereo Mix option, and I have enabled it. However, it is not picking up any sound when I attempt to use it. Is there any known solution to this problem?

A:Stereo Mix Not Picking Up Sound

I do a moderate bit of sound recording from time to time and 'Stereo Mix' isn't always the best choice. Try either 'Wave' or 'Line-in' as an alternative. It can be very annoying - hearing the audio coming across your speakers and the level meters in your recording software showing nothing.

Hello,

I play guitar and bass through my computer and record with Windows Movie Maker and Audacity from my soundcard using 'Stereo Mix'. I have Windows 10.

Everything was working just fine yesterday and I recorded a track.
TODAY, Stereo Mix, despite being enabled and set as the default device is not even picking up sound (as it can usually be seen by the green bar next to it).
I use headphones to listen to my playing.

All of the settings in my Movie Maker and Audacity are the same. All of my audio settings are the same as yesterday.

I would greatly appreciate your help as this is my hobby and my joy to share music with my friends. I'm not very tech savvy so please use layman's terms.


Thank you,

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.

Hello Everyone,

I do a lot of music composition, and I feel I could be getting a better sound quality out of my computer if I bought a high definition sound card, or am I kidding myself?

Here's my system,

Processor: Intel i7-3770 @3.4 Ghz
Ram: 16 GB
System: 64-bit
Soundcard: Via HD Audio
Speakers: Bose Companion 2

If I was to add something like a Sound Blaster X-Fi soundcard, would there be a noticeable difference in sound quality?

Or, should I just get better quality speakers?

Any thoughts?

Cheers

Hi, after a restart of my laptop (Dell Inspiron) the audio wasn't working, I hovered in the tool bar and the sound was with a red X meaning problematic, I clicked it and the window started searching for the problem which was IDT High Definition Audio Codec, I continued by clicking the windows to solve it, but it didn't and the problem remained.
In the msinfo32-->Componets-->Problem Devices it says IDT High Definition Audio Codec error code 39, I don't know what that means, I downloaded a new driver but it was a rar file, I extract it and they were some componets similar to IDT but I don't know what to do, I clicked the setup but it didn't do anything or any other applicaton in that folder.

A few days ago High Definition audio in my 64 bit Windows Home Premium system just disappeared. It was working the night before and the next morning it wasn't working. HDMI audio still works fine. There were no software or hardware changes prior to this audio problem.

I am using an Asus M4A785-M motherboard with VIA VT17085 8 channel integrated audio. The Device Manager shows the High Definition Audio controller and says the device is working properly. Yet I have no sound. The HD Audio Controller is enabled in BIOS and until just a short time ago Windows 7 saw my speakers as the default playback device. Windows told me that the current driver was up to date. If I went to speaker setup and chose anything other than Stereo, I could hear the test sound through my speakers. However, if I tried to play an audio file when set up that way, I could hear nothing. I know this is a software issue and not a hardware one since this is a dual-boot system with Windows 7 and Linux Mint. In Linux Mint there are no audio problems. High Definition Audio and HDMI audio/video play just fine.

Thinking that there might possibly be a newer driver, I uninstalled the HD Audio driver and went to the Asus support page for my board. It turns out that the driver that was installed was, in fact, the latest driver, so I downloaded it again and attempted to re-install it but could not do so. I got a message saying that the installer could not find the HD Audio device! Not sure how that could be. Anyw... Read more

A:High Definition Audio Device - No Sound

If you have the "HD Audio Codec" listed as the sound device/driver that is the generic Windows driver and many systems need vendor specific sound drivers.

Without the actual Lenovo PC model number there is no way we (or you) can try to find the correct driver.

I just bought a Gateway laptop (Win 7 64-bits) with a Realtek high definition. I listen a lot to classical music and I am disappointed with the sound quality of the card.

I listen the music with a good Seinheiser headphone. The problem is not the headphone because I switched back and forth between the new laptop and a 6-years old Compaq desktop and the desktop sounds much better. On both computers, I have the equalizers set as flat and no audio effects.

The problem on the laptop is that the sound sounds "muffed", with no treble and no color. I checked the drivers and they are the latest.

I am pretty sure that this is a good quality card and the sound should be good. What should I try?

Thanks,
Tom

Yesterday i installed a game however, when i went to play i got a message saying my 'Sound-Driver was occupied by another application and i needed to close that application in order to play the game'. Trying to figure out this problem i visit multiple websites and many people tell me to delete the sound drivers from my PC and re-install them. The only problem was i had no CD that came with my laptop so i had to find the drivers online. I went to Acer.com and put in my model number and found the right laptop. I went to the Audio tab and 3 driver options came up. Not knowing which was the right one i downloaded/installed them all.
Before we go any further ill give the spec's of my PC and what driver i deleted.

Hello everyone, well, for the past few days now. I've been experiencing this issue of having no sound. On the lower-right corner of the system tray, there is a Speaker icon with a red circle with a white "x" on it. So naturally, I assumed that this must be due to the sound drivers corrupting. So I went to the manufacturer's website for my Notebook. Which is an Acer Aspire 4730Z running on Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2.

The drivers I downloaded were Realtek High Definition Audio, after the files finished downloading I reinstalled them, only to encounter yet another problem. Which was that they failed to install. The specific error message that appeared was "Install Realtek HD Audio Driver Failure". So I tried to install it again, this time through the Device Manager by updating the driver software. This also, did not work, the error message for that was "This operation returned because the timeout period expired".

I've also tried the System File Checker tool, Microsoft Mr. Fix-It tool, the Check Disk utility, editing specific Registry entries in the Registry Editor, resetting the Services back to their defaults. Absolutely nothing has been successful so far. I've even attempted to reboot into Safe Mode, and install the software. Which surprisingly enough, worked.

Do you have the VIA HD Audio Deck installed with your sound driver. It may be in the control panel, systray or not installed. It should be compatible with your realtek onboard audio.

Assuming you have a Win 7 (or Vista) RealTek driver installed.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the RealTek entry and then LEFT click "uninstall". DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. If there were some type of corruption between RealTek and Windows this will fix it.

The Conexant HD Audio would be the device that supplies the Stereo Mixer, if Gateway enabled it. Some vendors have not enabled it to avoid DRM (Digital Rights Management) issues. I've seen a couple of Dell's that way.

Have you tried reinstalling the Gateway supplied driver? If not, give that a try first.

Gateway Support - Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / NV Series / NV54

If that does not work, unless you can find a compatible Conexant driver somewhere else you may be doomed.

Hi everyone, I would be very grateful for some help please!

My laptop recently installed a BIOS update - I don't know what this was but since it happened I have been having sound problems with my laptop. After the update I had no sound. I read around and found how to get the sound back on - I did this by uninstalling AMD high definition audio device and high definition audio device. I would then restart the laptop and the sound would be working again. But when the laptop would be turned off, on turning back on it would re-install the above 2 things again automatically and the sound would no longer work.

I noticed that when the sound was working realtek high definition audio was listed under sound, video and game controllers in the device manager and when it wasn't working this wasn't there. Every time I uninstalled the AMD high definition audio device and high definition audio device the realtek one would be automatically installed when the laptop was restarted but then taken off on the next restart. I tried disabling the first 2 to see if that made any difference but it didn't. I noticed the drivers could be removed for the AMD high definition audio device so I tried that - that is now fully removed but I still have the problem with sound.

A:realtek high definition audio and high definition audio device problem

First, the AMD High Definition Audio Device is ONLY for HDMI audio. It has nothing to do with the PC audio (speakers and/or headset).

Are you sure it was a BIOS update? Those are normally not automatic. The BIOS is the heart of the PC and controls the hardware configurations.

The basic Windows installed High Definition Audio Coded/Device is a generic audio driver. It can be installed for the PC audio and/or the HDMI audio. As this is a generic, basic function driver, the correct hardware driver needs to be installed.

Without the actual HP model number, I can't research what actually belongs on your PC. Apparently it is RealTek, but as it isn't functioning properly, or conflicting I still need to research the PC's specs.

Hi Lenovo and everyone, I have two issues with the sound of my Y700-15ISK:I.When any Realtek driver is installed that includes support for the subwoofer, a high pass filter is applied on the main stereo speakers, making sound poorer and more mono-like, especially with enhanced bass using an equalizer.(High pass filter removes low bass frequencies from the main stereo speakers.)(When the default Microsoft driver is installed that does not have subwoofer support, no high pass filter is applied on the main stereo speakers.)Is there a way to disable the high pass filter? I would like bass to come from the main stereo speakers as well. I see no such option on any of the available GUIs, is there such an option from a Command Line Interface?If there is no such option currently, could you put this option in a subsequent driver release, or simply remove the high pass filter from the driver?If you do not have the resources to do so, could you enable us to modify the driver source code and create a custom driver without high pass filter? I am sure the community would love the enhanced music coming from this and similar laptops using the updated driver.(Win 10 or Win7) II.Only on Win7:Subwoofer is out of sync with the main stereo speakers resulting in echo.Happens using Lenovo's Win7 64-bit, Win10 64-bit, and Realtek's generic driver as well. Could you guys fix this? Does anyone have a solution for these? Thanks,Andras

Hi,

Noticed today that although I have both Creative 'What U Hear' enabled and Realtek 'Stereo Mix', they are both not picking up anything at all, from any playback source. They are enablde devices under Recording devices and show as working etc but I cant get anything to record. No green levels showing or anything for them. I am pretty sure this used to work under Vista?

A:Both 'What U Hear' and 'Stereo Mix' not picking up anything

How long have you had this problem ? Or has it only happened since you installed the soundcard ?

>Overall the point I would make is, I have a creative soundblaster Audigy SE which I admit is a cheaper card, Creative disabled Stereo out recording for it on win7 drivers, and it barely worked on XP anyways. Just thought I'd let you know. It's a piracy thing.
It's probably not the problem.

im using now a sound driver default "High Definition Audio Device"Driver
do i need to uninstall it first before changing to realtek sound drivers??
and how do i uninstall it in safest way??and was there an option to undo if something goes wrong??

im using windows 7 ultimate 32bit. ..

A:Asking :SOUND DRIVER High Definition Audio Device Driver

That is the default Windows audio driver, and I don't think it can be uninstalled. Best is to not worry about it and just install the Realtek driver.

Uninstall the Realtek driver or do a system restore to before you installed it.

Dear helpful people

I was uninstalling some programs last night, and I somehow accidentally uninstalled my audio driver. Now whenever I turn on my PC, it says there is a new audio device on high definition audio bus, but that it can't find the driver for it. All advice on other sites said to download and install RealTek, which I have and restated my computer, but I still get the "not finding the driver" error. Is there some step I am forgetting to do, or could there be something else wrong?

I assume you need more details, but I am not sure what to give, just ask and I will get them to you right away.

A:No sound from audio device on high definition audio bus

I have now found out that device is SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio, but now whenever I try and install the setup for the driver, I get an error saying
"The audio Driver files do not support your computer hardware"

I am starting to think I uninstalled something really important, do you have any idea what I should check to ensure all the proper audio files are there, or how to replace them?

Hi,

I am running XP SP 2 on Intel Motherboard DH55TC, Core i5 CPU. UAA High Definition Audio class driver is resulting in high hardware interrupts that uses upto 10 to 12% of CPU. The interrupts goes away if I uninstall UAA Bus driver through Device Manager. But this also disables RealTek audio driver which means I hear sound no more.

I tried updating the UAA driver to Version 1.0a but still the hardware interrupts wont go away. Please help how to fix this issue.

The 1GB is barely minimum even for a 32 bit OS. I don't know how much you can install on that PC but at least an additional 1GB of RAM is needed. 4GB total if it will allow.

I recently ditched my cablebox and subscription. I get 16 DTV channels via risking my life mounting a home made db4 onto my chimney. I've purchased a ULTRA converter which inputs toslink/digital audio and DVI-D from the PC and outputs hdmi to my plasma tv. I have an older (really old) ATI 9800 PRO video card which has 128mb onboard ram, has its own power input from the powersupply, and outputs DVI-I (both analog and digital).

I've also purchased a good pc tv tuner (ATSC) which I will be able to use my PC as a dvr and watch anything on my plasma from online or recorded.

What will be the real quality of streaming video, say from a network show that has full episodes online in supposed "high definition," compared to live hd from an actual hd cable box? I'm wondering if it will actually be high def coming from the pc, from the internet...

Hello again everyone,
i am unsure if any of you will know the answer to this one so here goes.

I have a 9 month old baby and want to purchase a High Definition camcorder but i am unsure of when i store the video files from the camcorder to my PC if windows vista can pump out high definition video footage on to my large screen television.

I currently have my computer set up to my 46 inch LCD television and the picture quality is absolutely brilliant but just want to know as to when i save a video file from the camcorder to pc if vista can produce high definition pictures to my television.

Hope some of you understand my question and can give me some advice.

My problem is that afer installing the Beats Audio software I get low quality sound, but it was necessary for me to install Beats, because my main notebook speaker was not working without it. I really enjoy the generic  Windows driver when I use headphones, the quality is really great. However, Beats audio does not fit my needs when using headphones but if I uninstall it I cant hear sound from my main speaker. Is it possible to play sound throught headphones using generic drivers and Beats audio when watching movie without headphones?

Hello,

I was wondering if there was any such program from IDT for High Definition Audio for my computer. The program I am trying to find allows you to adjust (referred to as an equalizer) the sound, for example like the one built-into Windows Media Player, as well as enhance the overall sound (by giving more control over microphones such as boost, etc). On my desktop, there is a similar program called Intel Audio Studio if that helps to describe the program more sufficiently.

My computer is the HP Mini 1000 and it is currently running Windows XP Home. Thanks.
