Re: Asus Eee Netbook Stereo Mic Input?
- Hi Paul:
Wow, I will check out the device manager thoroughly. Some how I feel that this problem is software related. There is indeed a Left - Right slider on the input, but it does nothing regardless of a single tome on one side or on the other. Makes me wonder why they might have set it up this way. I really appreciate the help, and if I find out what the "magicical touch" may be, I will report back to this group.

There was no balance adjust control like on my desk computer. A stereo source only had one channel. I tried different drivers and even called HP tech support which was an exercise in futility. They knew less than I did about my laptop and if it wasn't on their trouble chart - well, you get the idea. After almost two years of accepting that my laptop was mono I decided to take it apart and see for myself if the jack was stereo and maybe there was a broken connection or solder splash or whatever. The circuitry was indeed set up for stereo. Grabbing at straws I tried several things and found it. The solution makes me feel a bit senile. In the device manager for the microphone there is a small box that you click if you "want to listen through this device". Since whatever I fed to it was audible anyway and any audio or SDR program worked (although in mono) I never saw a need to click on it. Well, long story short - if I click it then it is stereo and unclicked it is mono. Nowhere is this documented! I could even select 24 bit sampling and 96khz bandwidth. Noise is just above -120db. It may not be top shelf but it works great for general SWL and DRM and I'm a very happy camper. Maybe that option box is your solution, too.

> I am having trouble finding out how to get my Mic jack on my Asus Eee netbook 1005HA-PU17-BU to get stereo input. I have read in this list where several have use this machine for SoftRock IQ input, and many have stated that the Mic input is indeed stereo. For some reason, mine seems to be mono. Are there any tricks or set up quirks of which I am unaware? As I receive this list in digest form, please copy me directly as well as the list.
