    Series X, Console thinks headset is connected, So TV has no sound


    Hi All,

    My 2 day old Series X does not provide sound to my TV. It previously did. I had watched Netflix. Later I played online with friends. The next day when I got on, I was asked to do an update on controller. I did the update. My console thinks my headset is connected so there is no sound to TV.

    I have tried cycling through TV inputs.

    I have attempted to connect a different controller. The controller was recognized, but the still no sound.

    I attempted to reset console.

    I re set up the console.

    Still no sound to the TV. Has anyone else ran into this problem? Any suggestions?

    :)

    Xbox Series X - no optical audio port?

    I too was very disappointed when the lack of optical out came to light with the Series X. I also thought this was a stupid omission by Sony on the PS4 Slim. I'm happy with my current headset solution and its Dolby Digital 5.1 performance, but it relies on
    an optical connection.

    Edit: Having done some tests with my current setup, I cannot get surround sound to my headset without optical out directly from the console, so to continue to use a headset with the Series X, I will have spend more money. I've been with the Xbox brand since
    the OG Xbox, but this has definitely tarnished my feelings towards the Series X a bit.

    Turtle Beach+HDMI

    Yeah I have the same set up, hdmi connected to the tv which provides the TV with both picture and sound and then the turtle beach connected to the xbox audio adapter to supply the headset with sound.... So yes with this set up, both the tv and the headset
    receive audio :)

    One Guide - Freeview Sydney Australia - No info available

    I really think they (Microsoft) are dropping that OTA TV Guide (Option) due to the fact that the Xbox Series X has no HDMI In. So There will be no OTA TV option so they are phasing us out. Very disappointing!!
    I use the dvb-t usb tuner. Why would that be unsupported on series x?
