I mean that Ivisit says "Failed to open audio device" even if the "full
duplex" option is not activated. It just refuses its work ! I am using
the drivers "Soundblaster-Wiedergabe 220" (e.g. "Soundblaster-Playback
220) and "Soundblaster-Aufnahme 220" (e.g. "Soundblaster-Recording 220).

I reported my message as bug. Hopefully, its just a bug and not a
missing feature ! But I remember that I reported the missing audio
support (or bug) for Soundblaster-Pro cards (or at least for *my*
computer) some time ago, and nothing changed with new releases. So I sit
and wait....
