Question about IBM Lenovo ThinkCentre M55e PC Desktop
I'm running a winxp pro (sp3) on a Lenovo M55e desktop pc. I would like to keep a permanent connection between my pc and my home cinema system. Since keeping such a connection, meaning permanent one, halts my system audio and tunnels all audio information exclusively to my home cinema system, I bought a second soundcard, TurtleBeach Amigo USB soundcard. I planned to connect the home cinema to this usb card, while leaving my onboard soundcard operative for pc system sound outlets.
Well, when I connected the new USB soundcard to the home cinema system's cable, my pc lost its audio (keeping home cinema as the exclusive active audio outlet.
Is there a way to satisfy my preferences? Can it be done on system level? Is it possible via software level (For example, is it possible to configure quicktime to use the external soundcard and Windows Media Player via onboard sc?
A windows computer can only use one sound card for one function
you can use the internal sound card for output
you can use the usb sound card for input / recording.
you can't use both for both.
Start -> control panel -> sounds and audio devices properties
open up audio page
You can have one device selected on Sound playback
You can have one device selected on Sound recording.
you can change which sound card is used for which function on this page. if you want to use the internal sound card set both settings to the internal if you want to use the external change both settings to the external.
