Greetings,
I am a regular reader of this group and appreciate the solutions you
recommend to various Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger problems.
However I have observed that whenever somebody has an audio problem you
do not offer any suggestion or solution. I wonder why.
I am running XPPro(no SP1 or SP2), dial-up connection, Windows Messenger
4.7.2009. and have audio problem. Sometimes I get good audio connection and
on some occasions, under identical conditions, I cannot send or receive any
audio.
Any help will be much appreciated.
-ram

Greetings,

Actually I don't ignore them, I just simply don't have time nowadays to deal with every audio
issue that I encounter because they can get quite complicated.

In your particular case, more than likely the problem is on your contacts' side as a dial-up
connection usually doesn't have nearly the same amount of possible issues (NATs, poor UPnP
support, etc.)

I don't use dial-up and audio does nhot work for me under version 6.0 That
is why I went back to version 4.7. Now if I can onlu get WindowsXP from
telling me that I have an update for messenger, I would be happy as a lark.

Try SP2. Many bugs have been fixed. And XP without any SP will not be
supported anymore very soon.

I can hardly believe I'm reading this; I hope you realize how insulting this is.

I have spent three years here, everyday, at nearly 20-40 posts a day. Do a quick Google
Search:
http://groups-beta.google.com/groups?safe=images&as_uau...

Most MVPs are awarded on a few hundred posts; not 35,300.

Yes, if they're standing behind the counter or in this case, replying. I am not -- should
soup kitchen volunteers be dishing out soup when they're shopping with their kids? walking
down the street?

I am more than capable of handling an audio problem. If you want Microsoft, go to
http://support.microsoft.com (and good luck, as they'll redirect you here). If you have an
audio problem which isn't being answered, I suggest you start searching in Google Groups,
using my name in the advanced search; there is nothing more that can be said that hasn't be
said before.

Greetings Jonathan,
I am really sorry that my comments offended you. Please accept my
apology. Keep up the good work you are doing. No audio is not the end of
the world.
