for some reason when i use the xim4 manager/commander for pc streaming with the xbox one my pc headset doesnt register on the app. i still hear in game sound and stuff but i cant speak to other people.

but when i unplug the xim4 and use it with just a controller for xbox one streaming the pc headset works just fine?

To understand your scenario better, you are using X1 streaming to a Windows 10 PC and your XIM4 is connected to your PC and your headset isn't working (which is connected to your controller), correct?

There is likely a compatibility issue there with how we enumerate as an audio device on console vs how it looks on PC.

Can you connect your headset directly to your PC instead?

Make sure you have the Xbox one headset set as your default communication device in the windows 10 volume options. It's at the bottom right, right click the speaker and left click playback devices.


Also. When your streaming an xbox game in windows 10, the chat is muted by default. At the top of the stream where you see the option to stop streaming, there should be a little mic icon to the left of it. When you highlight it, it will say unmute chat. Selecting if will unmute your mic.
