Yoga 730-15 Microphone in

2018-09-16, 22:48 PM

I would like to plug a microphone in to the Yoga 730-165 (it was one of the main reasons I purchased this laptop) and it does not appear to be possible.  When I plug a device directly into the single 1/8" port, it does nothing.  I can only plug in headphones.  So, I purchased a splitter because I saw some conversations online (with other lenovo laptops)which suggested this may work, but when I plug an extenral microphone into the splitter, this does not seem to work either.  When I look into "recording" devices, I only see "Microphone Array" which seems to be the internal mic and "stereo mix".  Is there a driver I need? Or something else I should be doing?  Or is it just not possible to use an external microphone?
