[SOLVED] Trouble selecting Line-in instead of Mic

I'm trying to use QSSTV to display SSTV signals from my ham radio. The only problem I'm having is that it's listening to my laptop's built-in mic instead of the line-in jack. The input soundcard option in QSSTV is set to default, so I presume I'll have to play around with ALSA to make line-in its default input source.

Please help me here, I'm a bit stuck.

Re: [SOLVED] Trouble selecting Line-in instead of Mic

Just to be sure, you tried muting the built-in mic and unmuting the line-in channel in alsamixer, right?

Yes, the mic's muted, line-in's unmuted and at 50% volume. But for some reason, QSSTV's still reacting when I tap on the mic.

EDIT: Silly me - a noob mistake. I had to go into alsamixer, press F4 for the entire capture menu, and change the input source to Line instead of mic. D'oh!

Hi phillid,
Welcome to Arch Linux.  One of the things we ask is that when you regard something as solved, edit the title of your thread and prepend [SOLVED] to the thread title.  You do this by editing the first post in the thread.  We ask that you do this because you are the only one who really can determine that the problem is solved, and (aside from the moderators) you are the only one who can do that.  And -- I hear the moderators are all lazy tongue
