Thanks for the reply, Poly.
Tested with this:
Mixer vol is currently set to 84:84
Mixer pcm is currently set to 96:96
Mixer speaker is currently set to 85:85
Mixer line is currently set to 20:20
Mixer mic is currently set to 100:100
Mixer mix is currently set to 94:94 *
Mixer rec is currently set to 100:100 *
Mixer igain is currently set to 100:100
Mixer ogain is currently set to 100:100
Recording source: mic
On these sites:
Firefox finds the mic but no input back in
Chromium doesn't even find the mic.
The webcam works on both.
Audacity doesn't record anything from the mic.
Thanks for trying.
FreeBSD since version 2.2.8 [not Pro-Audio.... YET!!]
