X1 Carbon (2014) and OneLink Pro Dock LINE IN Failure

2015-02-16, 17:18 PM

I want to record the audio from another PC's Windows Media Player by plugging its LINE OUT to the X1 Carbon's OneLink Pro Dock LINE IN (Headset/microphone combo connector). 


I know that this PC's LINE OUT works because I can plug either earphones into it or external speakers and this works for me.


Setting the Enable for the external Microphone under the recording tab the Sound dialog box of the Hardware and Sound of the X1's Control panel does not do it.  Even if the X1's embedded microphone is disabled, this also does not work for me.


I can record sound via the X1's embedded microphone, but I want to record via the LINE IN of the OneLink Pro Dock.


I have the latest Windows 8.1 updates and I have the latest OneLink Pro Dock software installed, Version 1.08.31.


Thanks, JW
