[XB1] Audio passthrough stopped working
« on: 07:44 PM - 04/03/14 »
I've been using 20140329 since it dropped, and chat/audio have been working great until tonight. I can hear my friends in party chat, but they sound far away and my mic is not working.

I've tried a hard reset, different controllers, nothing seems to work.

My Xbone system firmware is 1404.140331-2200. I believe this was new today, so it may have broken something.

EDIT: Titanfall ST is drifting again too. Tried with Drift Guard on and off, no difference.

Can anyone else confirm that this latest X1 controller firmware did or did not break audio passthrough?

Updated my controller and now everything appears to be working OK now. Although the voices in chat are very quiet.

There was a new controller update today?

I think it might be a Mixamp issue. I see some other posts about it on their website.

Not sure, it might have been the old update which I never applied because my setup had been working fine previously.

Sorry for the false alarm.

I'm in the April beta, the work TEAM XIM have done is working fine, whatever problems there are, are on Microsoft's end but once the beta goes retail it should sort their issues.

I do however not use a USB HUB and have everything directly connected to the XIM4e, no BT adapter used either as I have all ST's setup.

Everything works fine.
Be humble

+1, just got the update and everything is working fine and dandy. No volume issues or anything else. So the controller update is safe guys.

EDIT: Occasional matrix sound still exists BTW.
