Mic does not pick up any sound, even after boosting the input volume. Other than this my 5K+ works flawlessly.
Is this even an issue I would be permitted to send my HMD in to get repaired for?
Regardless of the answer to the first question, is this something you personally would send in your HMD for? I don’t play a lot of social games/apps, but I have been enjoying OrbusVR lately and the non-working mic is occasionally an annoyance. OTOH I’m not sure I would want to be without access to my shiny new gen2 VR HMD for that long. Thoughts/opinions?
(Sorry, I made a duplicate topic in the other subforum.)
If you need a mic later down the track you’ll be stuck with needing to somehow attach it to the hmd and run another cable…so yeah I’d want it fixed.
Flying is always better with a wingman so a mic is a must for me.
So the microphone is working after all. I figured out after other microphones weren’t working either that it was a Windows 10 issue, thankfully not a problem with the HMD. Tip before anyone else panics: if you’re running the newest update of Win10 (1803), then be sure to check your privacy settings if your microphone has stopped working. Microphone access for both the device and apps needs to be on, though you can turn it off for individual apps still.
My PC is not picking up ANY mic from the PIMAX. Only mic options are those from the motherboard onboard sound driver (realtek high definition audio) - which works fine.
But cant mute or unmute something that cant be seen by Win10… is there a driver missing/faulty firmware installed/something I stuffed up in the very convoluted installation to make it work the first time/ or is it physically faulty?
