i can not record my voice.


Hi All,

Running Debian 3.1r2 with kernel 2.6.15 and have proble mrecording my voice in my headphone's microphone.

Intel motherboard with "snd-hda-intel" driver.Also sound works good.

My headphones microphone recorder is working well since I have tested in windows too..working good in windows.

And i have not altered any hardware from out of windows works.I directly switched to debian from windows;to check recording working or not in debian.so there is absolutly software or debian setup problem no way to hardware problem..

well,here r my problem goes.

First look at my alsamixer screenshot here,

http://rootshell.be/~navaladi/index.html

I think they are strange problems.

Also i have very doubt,to chose a recording device either Mic, or Line In or Igain..I don't know pls guide me here.


I have used arecord to record my voice..it recorded but while play it in mplayer ...i don't hear my voice.

Well this shows the mic capture is off so in the alsamixer highlight the mic setting and hit the m key to unmute and perhaps see if there is a volume raise possible.

Code:
