On windows XP i used to be able to listen to line in audio as well as have my microphone enabled in chat programs(or what have you). I lost that functionality when i moved to Vista then Windows 7. It seems impossible, its either one or the other, i tried searching but no go. So friends, any REAL way of having them both on? If it helps i have two sound cards i can use.
Also: I did it before so that i use the mic on one card and the line in on another, but every few hours, if im idle, i had to restart because on the windows speakers configuration, it would say "microphone unvailable"
