    I have my PS4 (and not only) connected to my gaming laptop to pass through the audio.
    Unfortunately few days ago when I was half asleep, I remember doing something, just not what, and now I don't have audio from the console (any console) passing through. When I say I did something I mean in Windows (8.1), some setting, I just can't for the life of me remember.
    I checked the volume mixer and the line in at rear panel is not muted.
    I can't see any device blocked or muted elsewhere and I can't afford to get myself hypnotized to remember what I did that day.
    Any suggestions?

    Disabling front panel jack detection sometimes causes something similar to this for me...

    Have you checked the settings in the PS4 in case your action on the laptop auto changed an output/input setting on that?

    I sometimes have an issue with Audacity using my surround sound headset to listen via the Line In on my PC. I have to change the surround sound setting to stereo in order to get audio to the headset. Error message indicates "feature issue" of some sort.

    Well, for some reason it now works, after doing exactly nothing.
    Thank you for your input guys.

    LOL! I hate ghost issues. I swear one of my PCs in the past had so many on and off ones I thought it was haunted. Hehehehe. Glad everything's working now. :)
