I'm having a problem whenever I open up a any game AND am using a chat app like discord or skype, after a few seconds, my mic stops working. If you look in the recording settings, the green bars are not showing up, so windows is not detecting my mic. The only way to temporarily fix the issue is by disabling/re enabling the mic I am using and leaving and rejoining the call. But the problem comes right back. There is no issue when I game/no chat app OR chat app/no game. Here is some information about what I am using.
Asus z170-ar motherboard
128gb ssd with OS / 500gb hard drive / 240gb ssd
Astro A50 (wireless) gen 3 with base station plugged into USB
What I am using:
Rainbow 6 Siege
Things I have tried:
Different headset, replaced it/tried other headsets and had the same issue
Tried different USB ports, and hubs.
tried every combination of setting default device
went into power saving settings and disabled USB ports from sleeping
updated all audio drivers.
Tried running chat app in administrator mode
restarted computer ;)
I don't think it's an issue with my mic.
If I use wired headphones the issue is not there, but I'm not settling for that, I need wireless headphones.
it's been happening for a while and i'm not sure what started to make it happen.
Any help would be awesome.
