Question for Egghead as a point he made prompted this question, but I'd welcome others' input if anyone would wish to respond.

Egghead, you pointed out that the picture my son saw of me depended not on my video card but on both our camera settings (more likely mine). (As I write we've not had a chance to change the settings.)

Now with the audio end of things, well we have audio cards and microphones and earphone/speakers). I am inclined to think that the situation is analogous to the video. My son's hearing me, I would assume, depends on any microphone setting I make (if this is possible) but on any earphone/speaker adjustments he can make. What he hears would have nothing to do with MY sound card.

If I'm incorrect please letl me know how it does work.
