I'm just going to repeat some of the edit part of my post so that it doesn't just disappear.When it comes to the famous Dmix there is another thing I'm wondering over. If the "rec" button is being clicked at a yellow dot indicates that it is on but if you click on it again it doesn't change (like the mute button does) so that the yellow dot disappears. I don't know if it is supposed to be that way but that is the way it is. So I would like some comment on that issue.
Have fun all DSL users,
The bahaviour of DMIX is controlled by the behaviour of the umix command that is used by DMIX to control the sound system.
I've had a look at this & what you suggest can be easily mplemented. On the system I use most of the time there are 4 'recordable' sources: line, mic, cd, & mix. Three of these: line, cd, & mix can be set to play mode (i.e. not record) if they are in record mode. When one of these three channels is changed from record to play mode mic is automatically set as the record source. From this it would appear that one channel has to be set as the record source, and that defaults to mic.
I can make the necessary changes to DMIX if it is felt that this would be a worthwhile feature.
I have no preference as I understand how this works, but it may be confusing for those who don't realise that clicking the yellow dot 'off' on a non-microphone channel turns the microphone channel on.
