My setup is a BCD996T remotely monitored via Proscan. Proscan uses the regular laptop microphone input. I have the radio tapped and a separate audio line from the tap to one of the small USB type sound cards.
I would like to be able to run Proscan for regular audio and decode TRBO via the tap. While monitoring that over Teamserver.
You need to specify to us what operating system you are using.
Linux: dsd -i <input audio device> -o <output audio device>
- ex: dsd -i /dev/audio -o /dev/audio
- ex: dsd -i /dev/dsp -o /dev/dsp
It all depends upon what audio devices you have
Windows: DSD Windows binaries [aka DSD4Win as somebody suggested it be called] are set to use the default recording and default playback devices. You can't switch via a command in DSD.
For your version of Windows, go into Control Panel --> Sound (or Control Panel --> Sound-related-choice). There will be a tab where you can set the default input device and the default output device.
In Win7 it's Control Panel --> Sound --> Playback | Recording
- highlight whichever playback | recording device you want to be default and click "Set Default"
In Windows XP it's Control Panel --> Sounds and Audio Devices --> Audio
- choose your default Sound Recording and Sound Playback devices
