I tried playing around with all those sound settings too. I never associated
the sound loss to any particular application, and I almost never use ichat
on this computer which is an older G4 sawtooth. Seems like it might be a USB
issue that relates only to the sound. There are a very few other people who
describe the same symptoms, but nobody has an answer. Do you live in Austin?
I lived there years ago when it was still small. I miss it.
