Good question. I think everything is enabled. I started up
KMix and put every slider, both input and output, above 80%.
Then tried all the various switches. But no sound comes through.
Reading the KMix manual, it says that if I have multiple sound
cards a selector will appear, to choose which sound card. I have one sound
card, but should the Hauppauge card appear as another sound card?
I tried to add the Hauppauge card as a second sound card but,
among maybe 100 sound card vendors, Hauppauge isn't listed.
The existing sound card works - when I connect the VCR audio out to it
I can hear it. But then I lose the synch between video and audio.
Shouldn't I be able to get the audio through the Hauppauge?
