I set line in to capture then muted it. (no sound recording yet)
I set capture to capture and turned it up to 75% (sound is now recording)

Muting line in has no effect, it still plays to output.
turning down capture and it quits recording.

any other ideas? I did try enabling the on board sound and using it for
recording, and the sblive for playing. It works but now I remember why I
bought a sound blaster live, the sound is awful.
