I'm having difficulty getting Stereo Mix to work at all.
I have searched a ton on Google and these boards, but nothing helped me.
Windows 7 x64
Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H mobo
VIA high definition audio driver
which includes Stereo Mix
Intel Display Audio for HDMI (I believe)
HDMI from mobo to TV input
Sound and video are via HDMI and simply come out of my TV
The problem I am having is that the Stereo Mix option is not functioning. What I mean by this is that Stereo Mix does not receive any sound. I can confirm this because the green bars to the right are not moving when sound is coming through my TV speakers (HDMI), the option titled Speakers, or any other playback option.
I have Stereo Mix enabled, not muted, and set as the default.
I would prefer to have sound come via HDMI, and be able to record it in Audacity via Stereo Mix. I know the problem is not with Audacity because Stereo Mix never receives anything in the first place.
I recently clean re-installed Windows 7, and I was able to record Stereo Mix before the re-install. I am wondering if the HDMI output uses a different driver and is not compatible with Stereo Mix from VIA. If this is the case, then I will need help figuring out what has changed with my system so that I can get it back like it used to be.
If you need more info, I will gladly provide.
