Thanks Fernando, I'm sure you're right that this is a very basic
on-board chip, that emulates many functions in software. I used the
ALSA pages relating to the emu10k1x chip to initially get any sound
from my box. I'll search again to see if they have any info about
recording from this chip. 

This weekend, I thought I would try plugging line out to line in and
see if I could record audio streams that way. Is that reasonable? 

Would it just be simpler for me to install another card, say a true
SoundBlaster Live! or an M-Audio AP2496? If I did that is it likely
that my FC3 system would easily recognize them? I don't want to spend
too much on a new soundcard, since I'll mainly be recording voice
audio and don't need exceptional quality. If I get a new card, should
I remove the ALSA module for the emu10k1x chip? 

I've learned a great deal from the ccrma list. Thanks very much for
your effort!
