I have an HP Pavilion DV2278ea laptop running Vista 32bit and have all OS updates apart from those announced in the last few weeks. I recently upgraded the software for the Conexant High Definition onboard sound card to the latest August 08 version 184.108.40.206 C. All seemed fine until I came to do an audio capture from an internet stream using Roxio. The only capture device listed was the microphone - there used to be one that said Conexant Audio 'What you Hear' to capture anything heard through the speakers. On checking Sounds in Control Panel the only recording device is the microphone. Sound works okay from both the internal and external speakers. I've tried rolling back the drivers but its still the same. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

Ok this has driven me mad for the last few days but I found the solution:
Windows Vista Recording Input Source selections for recording streaming audio, sound from media players or just about anything you can hear coming through your speakers are Hidden from view and Disabled by Default. (I'm sorry - but why!!?! )
If your sound card/system supports recording streaming audio Input Source selections such as: Stereo Mix, What U Hear, Wave Out Mix, Wave or a similar selection, here's what you need to do to Enable it for recording:
Right-Click on your Speaker Icon in your System Tray, (near your clock), select "Recording Devices".
In the Sound window that opens, near the top, select the "Recording" TAB.
Move your cursor down to where devices are shown.
Right-Click in the blank white area and select "Show Disabled Devices".
If supported, new selections will appear such as: Stereo Mix, What U Hear, etc. Right-Click on "Stereo Mix", "What U Hear" or similar and select "Enable".
Right-Click on the same item again and select "Set as Default Device". Click OK.
Now in the recorder's Options in the "Input Source" box, you should have the "Stereo Mix", "What U Hear" or similar source available to select for recording streaming, etc.
(You can also Enable other hidden selections like Microphone, Line In, etc. if they are not already shown).

Didn't work here. Used to be able to record streaming sound from the internet until I had a hard drive failure and had to reload from scratch. Even though I downloaded all the drivers and ran them, the conexant audio sources show ONLY the microphone, no other options..any ideas?
