Hey Marty, No. Nothing at all from it. I think the quad it’s working though, because I can hear when I speak into the mike. But I get no audio except that. no audio works when I tab around to other programs I have open.
So, I have to use my other USB head set to discover what’s going on.
It all started when I uninstalled the UCX phone system from the computer, and the only other thing I did I took off Jaws 17.
But I kept all the shared components and I have Jaws 18 and 19 that work fine.
Thanks so much for your help. Dave’s advice helped me, too.
I can be reached personally if this is too much “back and forth” on this list.

Judy, Is this a laptop computer that you are using? Do you get any other sounds in your headphones like Windows sounds?
Love in Christ
No it was not muted.
Now I still had another set of ear phones hooked in while trying this, because my speaker doesn’t work in my computer. But it showed sound forge, and also the quad. Neither looked unmuted.
I had the quad plugged into another ear phone USB port and no sound came out in any of my tests.
Steps I used:
Opened sound forge.
Went to sndvol and made sure my levels were at 100 percent.
Made sure neither sound forge nor quad were muted.
Went to the sound mixer.
Checked that each was recognized and volumes good.
double checked for muted or unmuted.
What steps am I missing?
Is it unmuted?
Love in Christ
I went in to the sounds mixer and it shows the quad there. The volume was 100 percent.
I am not at all familiar with that Mixer but have you looked at the default Windows Sound Mixer to see if the application driving your mixer is there?
You would also need the application from which you are expecting an audio output to be running.
You would need to see if the volume levels for it are normal if that is the case.
Just press windows R and type Sndvol and enter.
In fact you can do this just by pressing windows key and typing sndvol into the search box.
Then tabbing will navigate you to each of the applications running and show an individual volume level for each and a mute /unmute check box.
If the application is not there it sounds like you would need to consult your mixer hardware sound properties.
Okay, Here’s what I need to know, related to this story:
I used to use a UCX client for answering work phone calls from home. When I uninstalled that to use voices.com, suddenly now no audio comes out of my computer when I try and use my quad capture mixer and headset. In fact, when I plug in my headset, hooked to that mixer, no audio works.
You can either respond on the list, or email me privately at jredlichspeaks@...
Thank you much.
Haha, nice. I had a feeling you should check that actually, but maybe I never sent a message here about it. I don’t know what would have changed the setting either but, I think I have seen things like that happen before.
I thought I would just post to say how I had resolved my VLC difficulty.
Some may recall last week that out of the blue VLC suddenly refused to play any media for me.
Altering settings in VLC, including adjusting volume made no difference.
I therefore uninstalled and reinstalled VLC – still no difference.
I then had to install WinAmp to provide a replacement for the last week.
Tonight I suddenly remembered that I had not checked the Windows Sound Mixer.
I typed sndvol after pressing the Windows key.
Sure enough when I came to the VLC slider in the Windows Mixer I found that VLC had been set to 0%.
I changed this to 100% and VLC suddenly blared back to life.
Quite what had happened in Windows to set VLC in the Sound Mixer to 0% is a complete mystery to me. I am the only person using this PC and I have been nowhere near the Windows Sound Mixer since last year.
Some errant electrons have obviously strayed where they should not stray.
Anyway I have VLC back working again and thought I would post this in case someone else encountered this or a similar issue.
