The only problem we are having is volume. The connectivity is good. The sound is
good. The audio volume is low. The reason I post here is that between Skype,
X-Lite, Logitech Vid HD, Paltalk, TalkShoe, and Ustream (the audio applets),
Blink is the only application with which we are having a problem. I'm extremely
experienced in PC audio and am a former broadcast and recording engineer with a
degree in Electronics Engineering. The only reason I mention these things is to
establish that I'm not a hobbyist just playing around, although I will admit
that I must be doing something totally stupid.

If I could find someone with Blink who would be willing to make or receive a
call, I would have a better chance of troubleshooting the problem. However, my
appeals for a volunteer here and elsewhere have gone unanswered.

Thanks for your help. Even if I never get Blink to work between us individual
users, I absolutely love it for TalkShoe.
