I have connected a VCR to my PC via audio line out/line in sockets. I can hear the sound but Audacity does not record - just “flat line”. I was using v 2.1.1 but in an effort to resolve issue I have now upgraded to latest version. My settings are MME, Line-in and 2 channel (stereo). I am running Windows 10 and have checked the settings there. The line-in device is enabled, volume 100%, 2 channel, 16 bit, 44100Hz. Privacy settings seem OK. I have done this before with no problem. What am I doing wrong this time? Any help gratefully appreciated.
Did you try the next?
Right click on volume control.
(and the different options that appear there)
Thanks very much for your help. It’s not exactly as you say but by trying various things I managed to find the DELL Audio main screen which showed that line-in was muted. So, having un-muted it I can now record as desired.
