can't do it
Authored by: gretver on Jan 03, '05 02:31:42PM

Ephramz , thanks for your reply. On my pb all the checkboxes for the mic are greyed out. http://gretver.spymac.net/midi2.jpg
I tried fiddling with all properties boxes and buttons, but it doesn't help. I am using an admin account and I repared the permissions. I even rebooted...

I got an email from another macosxhints user saying that for him the trick was disconnecting his iSight, he then was able to select the checkbox. I don't own an iSight, so I can't try that trick. I did try using an external mic, but to no avail.

I notice one difference between the screenshots each of you linked: one is for an "external" mic, and the other is for an "internal" mic. Could that help?

I don't think it's an Internal Mic vs. Sound Input issue. That screen grab was just from my Desktop with no internal mic, but when I tried it on my PB Pismo with the internal mic selected, the same thing happens- only the top Thru checkbox for the Master input is clickable.

I just read that GarageBand may be making these boxes unclickable: http://discusssearch.info.apple.com/webx?50@724.y1CCaBMGH9a.3@.68a21abb If you have Garageband installed, trying running that and setting the monitor on or off in that. I did not install GarageBand on these machines, so that couldn't be what caused the original feedback for me.

Hmmm... I don't have Garageband installed. It's a pity, but the hint doesn't work for me on my powerbook g4
