    Headset chat mixer grayed out


    The headset chat mixer is completely grayed out to where I cannot click on it to adjust it. The main problem with this is I cannot hear game audio because the cursor is completely at the right and obviously stuck. How can I fix this? I see posts saying plug the headset in slowly but this does not work.

    :)

    headsets not working after last update Xbox one

    Are you plugging your headset into your controller? If so then have you checked the console Chat Mixer settings to see if it has been set to 100% Game Audio? The newer Dashboard has the Chat Mixer at the bottom of the Xbox nexus Home tab (bottom right speaker
    icon). If you see the Headset Chat Mixer slider is all the way to one side (eg Game) then move it towards the other side. Normally it would be at 50/50 mark.

    If you have an older Dashboard then you'll have to look for the tab that includes the Chat or Audio setting (sorry, I don't recall whether everyone has been updated to the newer Dashboard style yet) and check/change the adjustments there.

    If you have a wireless headset (eg Astro A50 series) then the Chat Mixer setting is adjusted on the headset itself. I'm guessing you don't have this type headset though as the Chat Mixer setting usually resets back to the middle (50% Game, 50% Chat) every
    time the console is restarted. Note that when an Astro A50 series is connected, the console Chat Mixer settings are grayed out since you have to make the adjustments on the headset itself.

    Good luck!

    headset chat mixer

    Can you supply me with more info ?

    What do you mean you can't "move" the chat mixer?

    Is the slider grayed out?

    If it is you can try putting the headset cord in slowly, and I mean very slowly. If you do it right, you should hear static as it's going in, then it will let you adjust it. Hope this helps!

    Xbox one elite series 2 no audio

    UPDATE.

    I figured it out.

    Hard reset the xbox with the headset plugged in. The new controller has the chat mixer turned all the way to chat and not to game . Put the mixer back to the middle and it works. Without the hard restart, the option to adjust the chat mixer is gone.

    Settings

    Display and sound

    Volume

    Party chat output

    Set as (Headset)

    Also on chat mixer put it as headset only. Its should cancel out feedback on your side.
