    Need volunteers to help do some testing to solve a problem

    I am at the end of my rope and I need answers. I am trying to record using the StereoMix device and my Headphones Mic at the same time.

    What happens is If I enable either Headphones Mic (Logitech headphones with Mic) or StereoMix the other one becomes " currently unavailable" I cannot get them both to work together. I can get StereoMix and the Internal Mic to work together ( both enabled at the same time) but the sound quality is bad because the internal mic picks up noises from the PC. I need to have both my headphones mic and stereo mix enabled at the same time for use of dual headphone and mics while recording a podcast and inserting sound bites as i record live. ( I don't have the dual headphones hooked up yet so that's not causing a conflict).
    I know this was possible in earlier versions of windows.

    The driver I'm using is the one provided by HP with the laptop. It is called sp59620.exe It contains this driver:
    TITLE: IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio Driver

    VERSION: 6.10.6425.0 REV: A
    This package contains the driver that enables the IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system.

    PURPOSE: Recommended
    SoftPaq NUMBER: SP59620
    EFFECTIVE DATE: November 30, 2012
    CATEGORY: Driver - Audio

    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_76D9="IDT High Definition Audio CODEC"
    Windows says this driver is the latest driver for my audio.

    I have asked in this forum once - How to use the StereoMix and Headphones mic at the same ?

    I have asked in the Microsoft Community forums.
    I have asked in the HP forums
    I have asked in the Logitech forums.
    I have asked IDT support.

    I have gotten no answers in any of them except in this forum by member Firebred in the above thread. (apparently he didn't have any more answers for me)

    What I am asking now is if some of you who had experience with different drivers.. even custom drivers people make/hack to help me find what is causing my problem and how to fix it. I need you to do some testing for me.

    I also want to know Can ANYONE make this work with Windows 8 at all - and if so - what driver are you using?

    Please folks help me out, try to make this work and get back to me.

    Remember my audio is provided by IDT so you must have IDT audio also. StereoMix will be grayed out and or "Currently Unavailable" by default with Windows 8. You have to select it as the default device for it to show up as a device you can use.

    Here are my specs:

    System Manufacturer/Model Number HP Pavillion G7-2251dx
    OS Windows 8 64 bit
    CPU AMD A-8 4500M
    Memory 8 Gigabytes DDR3 sdram
    Graphics Card Discrete ATI Radeon HD 7640G with 2 Gigs
    Sound Card IDT Audio
    Monitor(s) Displays 17.3
    Screen Resolution 1600x900

    Here are the drivers my system uses Software & Driver Downloads HP Pavilion g7-2251dx Notebook PC | HP® Support

    Here is the main HP support page for my system: HP Pavilion g7-2251dx Notebook PC Product Specifications | HP® Support

    I look forward to your replies. Thank You.

    are both of these mics 1/8" jack or is any of them USB?

    Have you tried a physical splitter?

    You can get this at radio shack, not sure about the cost, online is cheaper but local radio shack is faster.
    bestbuy and microcenter may have them as well, but they wont be cheap there.

    Or you may even need a mechanical audio mixer for your mics

    what model is your logitech headset? And how does it connect via USB or jack?
