  1. Check the settings in TS and make sure the proper sound input/output devices are set (should match control panel most of the time...). Also, if the TS server is laggy or has low quality codecs set for the channel you are in, that could also be the issue. Right click on yourself and check to see your latency while in server.

    Also, try the local test mode in the options screen and see if you can hear yourself properly. At the very least, this test will rule out any network issues...
  2. tryed all that and at times im ok and at times im not doing the local test.
    and the codec and the latencey are fine all in order and the device is set right
    in the input and output sections
  3. So sometimes the sound is OK, and other times its not?

    Did you try the HD drivers directly from Realteks site, or have you only used the PB drivers?
  4. yea tryed them both :(
  5. No yellow question marks in device manager?

    I'm stumped. Might be TS, or a possible buffer overload (my old 5.1 setup had issues, so I had to drop to 4.0 when using a Razer Barracuda...).

    Also, is it just sound input, or is output also affected? Also, does using a mic input from within a game working correctly.

    Again, I'm clueless, but maybe I'll think of something...
  6. no yellow marks its just my audio over ts everyone else come out to me clear
  7. I'm thinking its an issue with TS then; try using the mic test in Ventrillo and see if its microphone releated, or just TS being a pain.
