Windows 7: Can't get Stereo Mix to work!

Can't get Stereo Mix to work!

Currently having a lot of trouble to even get any sound out of stereo mix. I'm wanting to record sound from my PC but I'm not too sure if i can with the current set up I have. I'm using my Samsung TV which is plugged into the HDMI port on my PC and using the speakers already in/on the TV. I've went to the properties of stereo mix changed the "playback through this device" to my TV and I don't get any sound coming from Stereo mix on any program and the green bars aren't going up and down either.

Could i get some help with this?

Thanks in advance!

Try Sound->Playback->select your TV here. If you don't see it, Rt-click and "Show disabled devices." You might need to make it the Default (?).

Then Recording->Stereo Mix->Properties-> playback thru this device = TV or Default Device.

If you use a RealTek driver, get version R2.65 or earlier for recording from Stereo Mix.

If you are using HDMI, that bypasses the sound card and may be why the Stereo Mix isn't working.

Is there anyway to get around this?

You can try setting the "Speakers" as the default audio playback device. That MAY get it to work. You will probably have to use PC speakers or a headset to hear the sound.

Ah, thanks for that! Plugged my headset in and messed around with it a bit and got it working.
