Stereo Mix greyed out on Realtek HD Audio

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The Stereo Mix in HD Audio by Realtek seems to have an issue on recording sounds. I've did a lot of research onto why FRAPS wouldn't detect and record my sound, and the reason was because of Stereo Mix being disabled.

I've read in many other forums that other users with HD Audio have their Stereo Min grayed out and they're unable to record sounds.

I've yet to find a solution. Do you guys have any ideas?

Make sure that you have recording set to "Stereo Mix"

If you have HD Audio, it might be a bit of a bear because that whole convoluted interface makes switching devices a project.

If you have Windows Vista, Microsfot hid the option.
Control Panel > Sounds > Manage Audio Devices - rightclick in the window
Check both "Show disabled devices" and "Show disconnected devices"
You have to enable Stereo Mix before you can use it.

Shoot me an IM and I can help you get it working.

I believe Stereo Mix is the problem.

I think it was Tech Smith or something, sounds doesn't detect in there as well. =/

EDIT:

Sound problem solved. Please refer to EDIT #3 on first post.

When recording, don't go through stereo mix, go through wave.

Hi, I had a somewhat similar issue with Realtek on WinXP. My stereo mix slider is greyed out (but I can still mute/unmute it, which is wierd cause most people have select checkbox). Any ideas on a fix?

Would that Microsoft patch fix the problem?

I just want to adjust the stereo mix volume; it's already enabled.

Thanks.

Apologies for bumping an old thread but I found it from Google. I have this same problem with my Stereo Mix slider being grayed out but I'm still able to mute and unmute it. Anyone know how I can enable the slider so I can adjust the volume?
