  1. Stereo cuts itself from playback devices when I start a game


    Hello everyone, As seen in the subject, everytime I launch a game my stereo bluetooth, e7 cowin headphones cuts itself off and I mean by as in not whenever bluetooth disconnects, it cuts itself and then goes to my free-hands AG audio which is poor mono sound. It's happened in games for some reason, and I've updated my pc and other drivers possible to this, and in control panel service properties. Does anybody know this?For your extra information, it cuts my E7 Stereo playback output and then when I close the game E7 Stereo comes back. I'm using a mic not from my headphones, as its a desktop

    :)

    Sennheiser GSP 350. Microphone stops working when I open any game

    Wow, ok. I think I've fixed it by accident while fiddling around.

    It appears to be the Realtek audio being the issue here. I don't use my onboard sound card as my headset is a USB headset only and my speakers are plugged into an ASUS sound card.

    Step by step fix:
    • I went into recording devices
    • I enabled STEREO MIX (Realtek High Definition Audio)
    • Then I set that Stereo Mix as the DEFAULT DEVICE (At this point it took over both input and output devices without my permission )
    • Then set my Sennheiser headset as default recording and playback devices in their respective windows even though they both still said they were the default devices when they weren't
    Headset microphone is currently functioning while in game now. I'll update the thread if it goes again. Should I completely disable Realtek audio??? Or will windows just force it to work again?

    Stereo cuts itself from playback devices when I start a game

    Playback devices

    Before I received the Creators update, plugging my headphones into the front jack socket did not automatically switch the default playback device from speakers to headphones. I had to go to the playback device menu and do this manually. Since the update, plugging in the headphones works exactly as it should but, oddly, the headphones no longer appear as an option in the playback menu. Any suggestion why?
    It has also been some considerable time since I was able to access the via hd console. Clicking on VIAAUD in Program Files has no effect whatsoever. Any views on this?
