AUDIO DEVICES

Post by Peter Armstrong » Wed Aug 28, 2019 9:44 am

Recently, when opening my position and setting all the parameters for controlling, I have had pilots contact me via Chat box and requesting "do you receive my voice"?

After running a diagnostic throughout my entire VRC system, I happened to open my AUDIO DEVICES Box and, to my horror, the "Microphone Input Device", the "Headset Output Device" and the "Speaker Output Device" boxes were EMPTY?

Has anyone else experienced this weird problem?

Now, when I open a position, I constantly check the “Audio Devices" section of VRC - on some occasions one device box was empty.

Many times for me, my windows occasionally renames the USB headset or other type of input devices to new names then renames them back, no solution for you though I just check every session.

Yes it happens whenever my USB headset gets disconnected or plugged into a different port. Even if my main speakers don't move it wipes the whole setup page

Thanks Chris and Mike. My question is, why now after 4.5 years of controlling with VRC?
