I have it up now....the choices in recording section properties is General, which says it's working normally, Listen, which is set to "default playback device" with "speakers conexant smartaudio HD" as an alternative. It's set on "default playback device". Levels where the mic and boost are located and Advanced where I see there is an "audio enhancements" box that is checked. NO stereo options in the Recording section.
