[WT-support] Internal DVK and Windows 7

I’ve been using the DVK Function with my Lenovo W500, running Windows-7 64-Bit, for approximately the past 2 years using a very small and inexpensive external USB “SoundCard” – the Turtle Beach “Amigo”.  It has since been replaced with newer models. I know if can also be down with a SounBlaster X-Fi Extreme Audio SoundCard.

The Internal Microphone and Speakers in a Laptop are so close that feedback between them is inevitable.  Laptop Drivers are usually limited so that the Microphone and Speaker Output cannot both be enabled at the same time.

This Windows 7 "audio delay" issue is still true for many (most?) sound cards that are built-in to Notebook computers, such as the "Conexant HD Audio" sound cards.  Apparently some high-end external sound cards have a way of monitoring the mic. audio in real time under Windows 7.

A simple solution is to create a two-position mic. switch to move the mic. between your sound card input and your radio's Mic. connector, but that only works if your radio has one input for Mic. and another available for external audio, such as from the sound card "SPKR" output.

just found an older message to this topic:

Using the internal DVK is not possible on Windows 7 with the mic. > plugged into the sound card during the contest (no audio monitor > function in Win 7 or Vista), but otherwise it works OK.

Is this still true?

On the XP machine I get used to just plug in the mike into the notebook and hookup the speaker/hedphone output to the line-in of the K3.
