    Unable to activate microphone

    I've installed ( and re-installed TS3), followed the tutorials, everything is fine including the sound level setting. But I can't find anyway to activate the microphone.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you trying to activate PTT off a joystick or throttle button?

    If so, you'll need to install this: Gamepad and Joystick Hotkey Support addon

    God only knows why it doesn't come as part of the standard install!

    Also found that for me, if I ran Cliffs as admin but not TS, the PTT didn't work while in game. And the addon that Pans has posted was essential for me.

    Cool Re: Unable to activate microphone

    S!~

    This may help you. Last week there was a Nvidia video card driver update- my son tells me. I did not know this- because I don't really check that stuff. Drivers auto-updated and caused a conflict between my TS and the Nvidia audio driver - I think.

    After a great deal of chasing after sound settings that were fine- I did a system restore to about a week ago. This reset whatever TS settings / Nvidia audio settings and now my TS works as it did. Another player- Mustache- had been missing from comms for a few days- he finally types in chat " help! " - and I threw him this info- he applied these measures- and his TS also works now. Good luck. If you do not have a Nvidia card- then perhaps others can help you. Good luck mate.
    Blast you soon!

    I was facing some problem with the microphone in a few pages in my browser. Then I tried to forcefully allow the microphone and change it but suddenly chrome keeps crashing which was creating huge problem. The chrome is now not responding at all.

    No, I'm using a keyboard letter to activate PTT. Thanks anyway.

    Re: Unable to activate microphone

    So Accipter when you get into the ts3 setup window

    MIC 2.PNG

    and set your push to talk key, then begin test, nothing happens?

    If you go to this window does it show that a push to talk key is active?

    Also. I am sure you have done this, but when I could not get any sound from my mic the other week i realized that i has the sound turned down

    Re: Unable to activate microphone

    After some problems involving starting the game as well as TeamSpeak sound/Microphone problems, I discovered in Windows Device Manager that many of my devices, especially Universal Serial Bus controllers' "Power Management" features had uncommanded changes: The "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option boxes had been checked. This historically has caused problems in CLoD.

    It's a tedious chore to examine EVERY device in the Windows Device Manager in order to assure that this power management feature is NOT enabled, but it's a half-hour well spent if you're having troubles. It seems to have helped me.

    My recent downloaded changes include NVIDIA Drivers, as well as the recent Windows 10 improvement updates but I have no proof which is the culprit.
