Post New Requests Here / Backup and restore sound volume profiles
« on: December 04, 2018, 03:37 PM »
I have a 5.1 sound system.  I often adjust the volumes of the various speaker channels to give me the best sound for a given application - e.g. Netflix streaming, music player, You Tube videos, etc.  It's a pain to continually readjust each channel.  I'd like a way to make a sound setting, back it up, then reapply it when I need it.  I'd like to store several different profiles from which to select.  Can anyone pull this off?


Post New Requests Here / Volume fader for 5.2 channel sound card
« on: September 19, 2016, 04:09 PM »
I have a Logitech THX 5.2 channel external sond card.  I like to fade the front and center channels while leaving the rear channels at full volume.  This makes for the best balance in my room at the spot where I sit.  On some videos, dialog is muddled or sent to the audio background in that config, and I need to bring all channels to 100% to understand.  That's the easy part, since all I have to do is crank the volume dial on the card, and all channels are maxed.  When I want to return to my preferred config, with different channels set to different levels, this involves bringing up Windows volume control, navigating to "Levels," then "Balance," where I can manipulate the sliders individually.  It's not huge, but it's annoying.  I'd like a way to store and retrieve my preferred config(s) without jumping through the hoops in Windows volume control.  Anyone interested in figuring this out?  Thanks,  Stephen EarleVolctl.PNG

Finished Programs / SOLVED: "Dressed" links
« on: December 31, 2013, 08:09 PM »
I use Thunderbird (linked to my Gmail accounts) as my mail client, and I often send links for articles to those I think may be interested.  Within Thunderbird, one has the ability to create a link with the title of the article, underlayed with the link itself.  So a link that appears in my email would look like  Start new topic -, with the raw link - https://www.donation...tion=post;board=71.0 - hidden beneath.  Firefox has, as r. click context menu item, "Copy page title and locatiopn as...".   This I do, then compose my email, adding the link with the Thunderbird link creation option, which is done with a popup box.  There are two fields in this box, one allowing specification of a title and the other specification of the link itself.  I have to copy the title and location as plain text, then paste it into both boxes, editing the first to show only the title, and the second to contain only the URL.  This works great, but it's kind of a pain.  Since I have no idea how this stuff is programmed, I don't know a way around this process.  I would like a utility to extract and format the link in this fashion, copy it to clipboard, and allow me to paste the "dressed up" link directly into my Tbird mail.  Perhaps I am missing something or just do not know the trick.  Short of such a utility, enligthtenment would be welcome.
