Grey 'line in' is local input on the player computer. It is not a remote connection. In the case of station with a soundcard, the digital satellite feed goes into that input. The line in feature on the server, where you can schedule line in content, is the exact some input that's connected to the line in button on the live assist.

local_streamer program is a RTP sender. It sends audio packets over UDP from the laptop on which it is run to the player computer. Run the local streamer and the pavucontrol program on the laptop from which you're sending. When you click the start button on the local streamer, it will add an entry on the Recording tab of the volume control. You can then select additional usb audio adaptors in Pulse Audio volume control>Configuration.

With the local_streamer program still playing, click on *only* the RTP button on the live assist. You don't need to click on any other buttons. A triangle > will appear next to the RTP button, count down timer will appear below and the VU meter in the lower *left* corner will show a signal.
