Windows 7: Both 'What U Hear' and 'Stereo Mix' not picking up anything

Both 'What U Hear' and 'Stereo Mix' not picking up anything

Hi,

Noticed today that although I have both Creative 'What U Hear' enabled and Realtek 'Stereo Mix', they are both not picking up anything at all, from any playback source. They are enablde devices under Recording devices and show as working etc but I cant get anything to record. No green levels showing or anything for them. I am pretty sure this used to work under Vista?

How long have you had this problem ? Or has it only happened since you installed the soundcard ?

>Overall the point I would make is, I have a creative soundblaster Audigy SE which I admit is a cheaper card, Creative disabled Stereo out recording for it on win7 drivers, and it barely worked on XP anyways. Just thought I'd let you know. It's a piracy thing.
It's probably not the problem.
