    Question HDA NVidia sound, but NO mics work

    So last night I was trying to get my fancy firewire mixer and mic set up, to no avail. I couldn't find any linux drivers for the thing, so I figured that was the problem, no drivers. So I went to the store and bought a cheap headset, with a mic that plugs right into the mic jack in the back of the computer. I can hear sound fine from these headphones. I am however having problems with recording, just like before. If it makes any difference, I want to use skype with my mic, but it doesn't work in any application. Heres a screenshot of my alsamixer and some other things:

    Here's some other console code:

    All of the tests in the sound config screen work, except for the recording one, which lets out a screech that makes me want to weep, and then die. If you have any info regarding this, please share. If I can VoIP working, I really don't need to go back to windows. Thanks.

    Re: HDA NVidia sound, but NO mics work

    This is really interesting.

    On my old IBM notebook of 2003 with Ubuntu 9.04
    it was actually impossible to use Skype and Ekiga.

    Now they work well with OSS4.

    On a power box with quadro core inside, it might be possible
    to use Skype with Pulse. Or not?
