    I have been using REW for some time now but since the recent Windows creators update I cannot get it to see the microphone input. It sees the sound card and it is the same settings as previously but nothing comes through! The sound card still works with other software ok. I bought a separate USB...

    I have a powered sub, Polk PSW10 connected to my Onkyo Sr-535 with a standard subwoofer cable, not a y-sub cable. I was told to turn the Low Pass all the way to 150 to essentially create an LFE. I then placed my Sub into Auto On. On my receiver, after doing the auto calibration, the...

    OK, I use the REW every few weeks and last time I used it about 2 weeks ago my mic and SPL sound pressure meter worked just fine. But now I can't get it to work.

    Ok, so I have had a Pioneer Plasma Model PDP-42A3HD for a bit and the TV itself it works great and looks amazing. My problem is the remote sensor on the TV does not seem to work. The reason I say remote sensor is when I hold up the remote to a camera, you can see the IR blinking purple, so I...

    Is anyone else experience this issue? When I'm running sweeps, all of my measurements are defaulting to 1/48 smoothing even though I have no smoothing selected in the analysis preferences. What's strange is, I ran sweeps a few weeks ago and it didn't do this so I don't know if there's something...

    Hi, I noticed that ever since I updated to OSX 10.11.4 I could no longer get a measurement to generate. When I try to run a sweep I cannot get REW to generate a measurement. It just shows a -180db line. RTA doesn't work either. I use to be able to make measurements prior to 10.11.4. I tried...

    Hi, I've been using Rew for a couple of years, so I do know the basics. I have an old laptop running XP that I use to take room and frequency measurements. I've never been able to make it take an impedance measurement though, so I've always used my desktop for this. I use a homemade jig and it's...
