After living with a Creative Sound blaster and M-Audio Delta DiO in my HTPC for a year I wanted to try the Revolution 7.1. I got it a few days ago, but it seems that I didn't do my homework on this one.


I'm having problems getting the line in on the Revo to work. I need this for the sound from my TV tuner card, and this was the reason I still had the Creative in my HTPC.


After searching the forum again I found a few post mentioning the problem with line in on the Revo. Has anyone else gotten the line in to work? I find it hard to believe that the Revolution can't do this, when my cheap, 3 year old Creative can do it.


I'm having the same problems as a few others with the signal peaking with the adjustments almost all the way down. In addition to this I have never been able to get sound on any recordings with the Revo. Slipped the old Creative card back in, and everything is just fine (at least when it comes to PVR sound).


Is this a driver issue that is worth waiting for, or should I just give up and find another solution? I'm almost at the point where I give up having a HTPC that will do service as both PVR and DVD/Scaler. I can't seem to find a setup that will function for both. At least not without lots of fumbling with Windows Control Panel and PVR/DVD software when changing functions.

Goran - I, too, discovered the line-in oddity this weekend when I installed the Revo to use with my Visiontek Xtasy Everything TV tuner (which uses an outboard tuner box - the "green box"). You probably know this already, but the line in works when I have the control panel open, but as soon as I close it, the line in ceases to function. So, I guess, the temporary work-around is to leave the control panel open.


Of course, be sure that your DVR software is setup to use the M-Audio sound card as its source/playback device.


Also, copied from another thread/post: "You have to click the "enable Monitoring" box in the "Input/Other" tab of the Revo control panel. This will only work while the Revo control panel is open. You close it and it turns off. This will get you sound, but it wont be synced properly to the picture. "


Rumor is that the synch problem should be fixed in forthcoming driver update - who knows when.

I've sent a note to M-Audio tech supt asking if this is normal behavior. And if it is, how can I auto-launch the control panel at Windows startup.
