Are you sure you get actual stereo output in Windows? I also got a cheap
usb cassette player last year, and I got a stereo recording, but both
channels were the same.

years ago, and I've run into a slight issue with the detection of the
device.

The device identifies as a JMTek USB Audio Device (Vendor 0c76, Device
160a). =A0I'm using openSUSE 12.2.

When I plug the device in and connect to it with Audacity, and I only get
a mono channel (rather than a stereo setup). =A0Looking at the output of
"lsusb -v", I see that the input terminal is identified as a micr=
ophone
with one channel. =A0(Output of lsusb -v is at the end of this post)

If I start a Windows XP VM in Virtualbox and connect the device to that,
it is recognized (in Windows) as a stereo device, and I can record left
and right channels, so the hardware should be recognized as having stereo
channels via USB. =A0There are no special drivers installed for the Windows=

VM (it was just "plug and play").
