Astro A40 Wireless 5.8 Mixamp.
OS: Windows 7 64 bit
Sound Card: HT Omega Striker 7.1 - Drivers up to date
Connections as follows:
MixAmp TX base via optical cable to HT Omega
MixAmp TX PC voice cable to PC USB
MixAmp RX to headsets
All correct and working with sound to the headsets.
Now here is the new issue. When connecting the PC chat cable via the USB -- it disabled the sound back into the headsets and formed a new "astro chat" option. This option needs to be disabled in order to hear anything coming out of the HT omega.
Even when the Astro Chat is enabled -- still no sound heard through the mic.
I am getting VERY frustrated with this PC set up and have spent a ton of money on what is a VERY backwards system. Only success with CHAT and SOUND has been via direct usb connection to the motherboard and NO optical out cable. I have a feeling -- that I need to adapt the USB PC cable to turn it into a 2 jack set up for the HT omega mic. But thats just me spitballing.
Any ideas? I have checked the hardware set up a million times. It is all correct and all drivers are up to date. Any ideas with regard to software mic configure for the chat?
