Stereomix says "Not plugged in" when headphones are connected.

Hi, I want to record stereomix when my headphones are plugged in. When I plug in my headphones, the Stereo Mix says "Not plugged in." I have tested this with three pairs of headphones and the problem only occurs with headphones that have a built in mic - so have three rings on the mini jack input.

Even if I disable the External Microphone in sound settings, the Stereo Mix still says Not plugged in.

Conexant ISST Audio. 

However, as soon as I unplug the headphones, or plug in headphones without a built in mic - two rings on the mini jack input, the Stereo Mix becomes available.

Is there any way to enable the Stereo Mix with other headphones plugged in?

Please note, I do not use USB headphones or microphone. 

Thanks!

Does the "Sound" app within "Control Panel" look like this:

to let you choose which "input" is to be active?

Hi,

I started to have the same problem since I reinstalled an old version of the conexant driver.

 

I had to do it because the May version of Conexant audio drivers creates problems of high processor utilization

(see https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-Notebooks/ProBook-450-with-high-CPU-usage/td-p/6520063/page/1...)

 

There is a way to activate stereo mix with headphones are connected ?!?!

So, have you managed to overcome the problem? Or do you still have it with the new version of the drivers?

In reality also my old driver version (9.0.157.10) has the cpu usage problems but not has the others problems of the latest version...

however I have the problem of not being able to record from the steromix input if I have headphones connected ...

> I want to record ...

 

What software are you using to save the recording?

What options does it have, e.g., "line-in", "Microsoft Sound Mapper", "internal microphone", "external microphone" ???
