Sigmatel was sold to Freescale and is not doing well after the sale. I just found this note on Wikipedia;
"On February 25, 2009, Freescale laid off 70% of the former Sigmatel team as part of a company-wide reduction in force. No new products under the old Sigmatel design teams will be created. A 'skeleton crew' was chosen to stay and support existing OEM customers that are using the existing chips until the chips are 'End Of Lifed'."
Regarding my drivers
; the jpeg below is the maximum detail I can find in Windows 7. The driver
may well have been written by someone other than MS.
I have a 3 year old Intel board and Intel has stated they will not be developing Win 7 drivers for it.
MS has no newer driver than what I am using.
Sigmatel no longer has a website. I haven't yet checked the Freescale site; it was a Motorola spinoff I think.
I have also tried to get recording going with my standalone Creative Labs sound card, which has Windows 7 drivers.
No luck there either. Playback is fine.
The "stereo mix" (aka "record what you hear") option is not shown in the sound control panel, regardless of whether I am trying onboard sound or Creative Lab.
So, the question is has anyone got "record what you hear" going with Windows 7?????????
If so, with what onboard sound chip or with what standalone card??
I may try Vista drivers next. Recording worked well under Vista.
Thanks for any further info. I may be overlooking something.
