Windows 7: No "What u Hear" recording option.

No "What u Hear" recording option.

Have a SB0770 card that I got working with help from the good people here. When I go to Audio Creation mode the only recording source listed is Digital-in. I want to record what I can hear through the speakers (eg internet radio, WMP library files, Atmosphere Ambient music.)

In Multi Channel Wave I can control the speaker volume in Playback mode but there is no movement of the VU meters in Record mode.

Will simply connecting Line out/Spkr to Line in work? I would like to use a splitter so speakers still work or will this create a feedback loop?

In Windows the recording inputs available are Digital in and Microphone. I guess I would need to switch to Microphone in Win as default recording source.

Hope someone can help.

My only suggestion would be to see if the other input sources are hiding.

Even though it's an SB card... I'm assuming you have the Microsoft speaker icon in your task bar?

Right click on it and select recording devices... then left click on any of the devices or even in a blank section in the middle of the window... then right click and make sure "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices" are selected. Any additions to recording devices? Such as "Speakers".

There isn't a stereo mix option? Usually I open up Audacity, Audition or whatever and select the Stereo Mix as the input, and it works fine.

1st and foremost you need the right card...that supports 'What U Hear or Stereo Mix"
2nd make sure there is a driver that you can download that fits your operating system... such as Win 7 x64
3rd buy a new card if yours doesn't support the feature mentioned in the first step
Determine the type of slot you will be putting the new card into ...ex. PCI or PCI express?
Buy something like Turtle Beach Montego DDL if you have a PCI slot
Buy Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium if you have a PCI express slot available
Remember to Disable / uninstall old sound drivers before installing your new sound card
Update the drivers from the website... don't use the ones on the CD furnished
I think this will help you record audio passing through your speaker
