Hoster only plays on one speaker

I had to go to my backup player because the music from Hoster was only playing the left speaker. All of my other players played perfectly.

Re: Hoster only plays on one speaker

Never heard of this problem before.

When you say your backup player play OK, is it using the same computer and same operating system ?

Are you using an external sound card, if so is the backup player running from the same sound card ?

I would check your sound cards properties while Hoster is running, specifically the Balance settings that are shown from the levels tab.

Have you tried listening though a pair of headphones strait from the PC headphone jack to see if the problem is from the computer or after that link ?

Re: Hoster only plays on one speaker

Did this happen all of a sudden ?

If so did you change any settings just prior to it happening.

you could try creating a backup file from the Help menu/backup restore function an see if it will attach to your reply, I might be able to check your settings on my own computer.

Re: Hoster only plays on one speaker

I made no changes whatsoever. And it\'s only happening with Hoster. I can\'t see any setting in Hoster that could cause it to happen.

Re: Hoster only plays on one speaker

So is it still only playing out of left side ?
Did you switch players strait away at venue while everything was hooked up ?
This has never been reported before and sounds like a hardware hook up problem to me.
Example a jack plug not fully inserted or a faulty wired cable to plug.

Re: Hoster only plays on one speaker

Played a song off of winamp without touching any cables and played on both speakers so wiring is definitely ruled out. Only software doing the single speaker routine is Hoster.

Re: Hoster only plays on one speaker

Is it still doing it ?
If not was it just a particular song that was playing at the time ?
Which would indicate a faulty recording.

Re: Hoster only plays on one speaker

Have not been able to test it out yet. I would have to bring my speakers and my rack or detach my sound card which is velcroed to the rack and hook it up to my backup mixer.

Re: Hoster only plays on one speaker

Why canít you just plug a pair of headphones into your laptop to hear if its playing out of both. If it plays right through them then the problem must be further along the chain.
