Can anyone assist with the 0's and 1's for a Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221 sound card to enable the "WaveOut Mix" option for sound recording to an HP dv2845se laptop running Vista Service Pack 1?

I just purchased an HP dv2845se laptop. For the week I've had it, I haven't had any fun.

When in the sound menu, I choose the "recording devices" option, and I only receive a Conexant microphone option. There is no "stereo mix" or "waveout mix" option. I've tried showing disabled and disconnected devices, and there are none.

I use a virtual synthesizer program which I need to record at the same time using the "WaveOut Mix" option that isn't present on this computer. I have searched for days for a solution, and I found this to be the most helpful, but it was not relevant for my sound card. http://www.notebookforums.com/showthread.php?t=193323 <---- read what Ezradv wrote

If I had that sound card, I could probably fix it by following the instructions provided, but Conexant is different.

I re-download the sound driver, and went into (what I thought was the meat and potatoes of this soundcard) a few different folders, and found "WaveOut Mix periodically throughout the code, meaning there is such a thing present in this sound card. To make things more tricky, there are 2 different folders in the conexant driver setup named "Hermosa" and "Venice". I can post the contents of both folders, or whatever you need. I am completely lost, and any help would be very much appreciated, thanks.

I've paid close attention in particular to a quote from this blog:

"Basically the software (driver) is built to do everything including Stereo Mix. They are all that way. Well most of them are as it's much easier to design a driver to do everything and then disable functions in a config file. Redesigning a driver is very expensive. Disabling the Stereo Mix is a requirement that is artificially imposed so you don't capture (stea) audio streams. "

Is this a measure taken by sound card companies to comply with regulations? If so, it is most certainly legal to alter these barriers, while jeopardizing a warranty. I am definitely fine with negating my warranty, so please let me know, thanks.

p.s. I have this thread bookmarked and will check every day for the next few months until someone has a solution.

Make sure when you enable the disabled device that you set it as default or it looks like it will not capture (makes sense). Hope you found this useful.
