I am using an E22 to archive my vinyl collection into Sony Sound Forge.  I have recently noticed that the input volume faders have no effect.  The meters in Lynx Mixer and Sound Forge never change whether the faders are at max or mute.  Anyone have any idea what's up?  Thanks.

Those are not input volume faders.  Those are monitor feed-through volume faders.  Lynx Mixer let's you control a completely independent mix for each output.  The top row are the record sources and the second row are the play sources to feed each output.
Thank you,

I guess my question is how do I control the signal level reaching my recording application?

You should control the levels from the signal  source. Its generally not something that is desirable to do in the digital domain. If your signals are way too low, you could set the E44 input trims to "variable" and that will be 14dB hotter.

Good tips, thank you.  Source isn't variable as it's the REC out of a pre-amp.  I was hoping for a simple fix for minor adjustments based on LP levels but I can work with this.

So after following the above advice I have a new concern.  When I use the +20 dBu FS setting Left and Right are very closely matched however when using the variable setting the left is about 10 -12 dB hotter.  I assume I can correct this via the trim pots but was wondering if this is normal or do I have a hardware issue?

That is a big disparity, Yes, could be that the trim pots shifted a bit. If you can pass tones and adjust them to match that would be a good idea.

Being stupid and clumsy I have managed to dislodge the pot from the board.  I have support a support request form but have not heard a reply yet.  Hoping for the best, thanks.

Hmmm, I don't show any open support requests. Can you resubmit that?
