Rob and Petro,
As Petro alluded to, there are two primary drivers for Replay Music in the 
Settings Input pulldown: Audio Driver and Windows Audio Driver.  If you have a 
microphone or other input source, other items might also appear in the listing. 
 The Windows Audio Driver will pull sounds out of the Windows system, and, 
consequentially, it could get mixed with system sounds or other audio on your 

The Audio Driver can pull audio right out of your browser which will not get 
mixed with other sounds.  Up until Windows 8 this worked fine.  However, 
Windows 8 introduced Secure Boot into the BIOS which may disable the 
functionality of the Audio Driver.  Depending on your system, you may need to 
disable Secure Boot for the Audio Driver selection to work properly.

mode now but it is not recording yet for you until you play the media. Press

To stop recording go to Replay music 6 and choose the stop recording button. 
Examine the list view within RM6.

Can you provide me the website URL you are trying to capture?

Greetings all,

Replay Music Version 6.10 01-23-2014
Windows 8.1
Firefox 29.0.1
Internet Explorer Version: 11.0.9600.17107
JAWS Version 15.0.8021

Previously, when I was using Windows XP, I had found a technique that worked 
every time so that RM would record the stream and not JAWS or other system 
sounds.  However, that technique does not seem to be working here on Windows 
8.1.  There has got to be a better way to have RM record what is desired 
without having it try to guess what  to record.  If there was a button or 
checkbox that simply stated record what is being requested by browser “fill in 
the blank”, then it wouldn’t be so difficult to have it not record speech 
produced by an accessibility service.  In addition, the “Open Browser” button 
has not helped with this issue and it has its own draw backs.  Currently, I use 
Firefox as my default browser, but I do not have Flash installed.  The site I 
want to record uses Flash which would be fine if I could pick Internet 
Explorer.  This way, I am forced to either install Flash on Firefox or switch 
my default to IE, which I did do temporarily just to see if it made a 

So is anyone using a similar configuration to what I currently have 
successfully?  If so, what steps or settings do you use?

Thanks for any assistance with this issue,
