FS#7364 - Line-In Recording doesn't seem to work on iAudio X5

Summary says as much as I know. I’ve tried several builds, and am presently using the current build. Recording using the Microphone works as expected. FM Radio recording also works as expected.

Mayhaps everyone already knows this? I couldn’t find any other bug reports regarding it.

I find this odd since FM Radio is technically on Line-In also. The line input on the audio chip is multiplexed between Line-In and FM Radio. There is another report in the Users List. I cannot not reproduce the problem myself. Does it go away if settings are reset?

Michael, I'm sorry to waste your time with this. I'm guessing the Line-In port is incapable of supplying power for a microphone, in which case it is no surprise that routing the microphone through my computer then back out to the X5 works fine. I double-checked the OF, as I seem to recall using a headset to record some notes… I must have fooled myself there, unless the headset I was using was somehow providing a much louder signal…

Correction, I guess my headset is just a piece of garbage. On a hunch, I plugged the iAudio X5 earbuds into the Line-In port and used them as a microphone. Worked fine, so I guess Line-In must supply power.

Once again, sorry to have wasted your time!
