Audio cuts off when using Discord & BFV

Post by Projectblue » Sat Dec 15, 2018 9:02 pm

So BFV is amazing and works fine with speakers. However when I use it with headphones/mic and Discord, it cuts off after a while. There doesn't seem to be a regular point where it cuts off, it just goes.
Once it's done that, there is no audio received at all, although I believe people can still hear me when I press the PTT.

Unplugging the headset doesn't restore it.

Turning the speakers on doesn't restore sound.

Only exiting the game and discord and restarting everything brings it back. Only for it to repeat later.

Q: Does it do it with any other games?
A: No. Just BFV

Q: Does BFV work fine without USB Headset - just outputting through speakers?
A: Yes

Q: Does BFV work fine with USB Headset, but not using Discord?
A: Don't know, don't think I've tried that.

Q: Have you looked at Discord Video/Audio and selected default items?
A: Yes. It made no difference

Q: Have you looked at Windows Sound and checked it's detecting/working?
A: Yes, it says it's fine but cannot play test sounds, once it's cut off.

Any ideas? Cos this is really starting to fuck me off. And you all know how calm I normally am.

@BillBailey Corsair

@Hairy Frog 1) yes 2) sole port and then via hub to test 3) no. It worked before BFV. It works with other things, eg in game comms in Elite. (Don't know if it works with in game comms in BFV, not tried that).

Is your speakers system a simple stereo set? or more, like 2+1 or 5-1 or even more complex suround system ... ?

It's called iCue. Really good bit of software but essential.
