I went to the Minidsp forum and found I wasn't the only one with this issue, seems you have to push really hard on the usb cable where it enters the mic until it clicks. So now my rew is seeing the mic, but when I do the next step in set up (per the umik1 set up guide w/hdmi) for the output dropdown, I don't have 8 channels to choose from, only 2, and when I hit the generate tab I get no sound through my onkyo 1010 with the hdmi hooked to it's front panel

Things to try:
  1. Check the ASIO control panel. Make sure the HDMI output is selected and the normal audio device output is not.
  2. Recheck the sound properties in Windows and make sure the HDMI is setup for 7.1 output.
  3. If that is not an available option you may need to enable multi-channel capability in the BIOS.

Let us know how you do either way.

I have the same problem -no 8 channels to choose from and no sound out of my HT speakers but I do get sound out of the laptop speakers instead , did you ever figure out what the problem was?

Why not post ( about your challenges ) in a more appropriate thread ? That would be the one called Using the UMIK-1 & REW with HDMI output

Some Important Points :

(i) HDMI ( multi-chnl ) output only works when REW is using ASIO mode ( & this is a Windows only option, btw ) .

(ii) One typically needs to have ASIO4ALL loaded onto ones computer ( & it must be setup properly ) to get signals into the HDMI outputs .

(iii) ASIO4ALL must be chosen as the ASIO driver ( from within REW's preferences window ) .


This ( & other important info ) is covered at the miniDSP link that is mentioned in Sonnie's sticky .

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I did check all my settings, I even removed asio and reloaded it, booted, reloaded REW. I actually took 2 steps back. Now it doesn't see the mic ( umik ) nor does it acknowledge 8 channels. This is very frustrating, I get the emails from htshack touting their new relationship with minidsp and I figure they finally have the bugs worked out from a year ago when I first saw the umik1 thread. Apparently not

If REW and ASIO4ALL are configured properly, Does this help...?

If you're on WIN7 open the Control Panel-->Sound.
In Playback tab, if your computers Speakers are listed above your AVR try right-clicking them (computer's Speakers and/or any other entries listed above your revceiver) and clicking Disable.
Tip-also click Show Disabled Devices so they don't disappear.
