    Hi, I just got a cheap usb tv card (Geniatech UTV3), and it works just fine for all I want it for, but I have problems getting audio when recording. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite M45-S351. I plugged the audio in into the microphone port (since there is no line-in). When setting something to record, it doesn't record sound. I know I'm supposed to go into my volume control and make sure the record device selected is the microphone. I do that and double check after closing it to make sure its still selected. BUT, when it starts auto-recording, apparently it automatically switches back to the line-in for recording device. I tried unchecking that option under options, but it still did it. Does anyone know why it does this...or even what I'm trying to explain (I probably didn't do a very good job of that). Thanks a lot.

    Oh, I use XP Pro. It does record with sound as long as I leave both the WinTV program AND the volume control window with the microphone option checked under record volume. But if I close the WinTV program and let it automatically pop up when the scheduled recording comes on, the record volume check for some reason switches from microphone to line-in.
