Sorry about that, it was my fault. I just sent my hacks, to get it to do what I wanted it to do, over to Rein and they appeared in the code. I'm not confident enough to add in a config option for using the soundcard mic, so hopefully you might do that Tom? I presume that's what's needed?

Can you really get soundcards without a mic input? Or is it just called something slightly different on that soundcard?

TLF tries to mute the microfone input on your soundcard.

The problem lies in the hardcoded assumption that there is such an
input device on your soundcard.

As a quick fix I would suggest to comment out lines 1236 and 1238 in
src/callinput.c and recompile. That will drop the amixer invocation.
Keep an eye to the possibility to catch additional microfon input
signals during sending of one of the F-key audio tracks.
