    We can’t find a microphone for these people


    I'm using a PXN steering wheel on an Xbox One.

    I plug the steering wheel into the console via USB and it works fine. Then I plug my normal controller to the USB on the steering wheel and that works, too. I can control my cars with the steering wheel or the controller. Then I plug my mic into my controller but the console doesn't recognize it.

    My party chat in Forza 4 shows "We can't find a microphone for these people". But if I disconnect the steering wheel and just use the same controller and mic, the chat works fine.

    Is there any way to make this work together?

    Thanks for the great suggestions. To answer a few questions.

    @Arminator and @niwshki The controller is an XBox series X. Plugged into the PXN steering wheel. The microphone is the Official Xbox One Chat Headset plugged into the controller.

    @AquarrzSudnnym The IPv6 is not the problem. If I unplug the steering wheel the chat works. If I plug it back in the chat stops. I don't change my network in between.

    @REN AERO the link you posted has no solution and doesn't mention anything about steering wheels.

    @XBF Javier R thanks for the links. My headset works when connected to my controller until I put the steering wheel in the middle of the chain. The troubleshooting steps there all work for me until I use the steering wheel.

    My setup is
    XBox One <----USB----> PXN Steering Wheel <-----USB----> XBox Series X Controller <------ Xbox One Chat Headset

    I'm trying to use the party chat and I see "We can't find a microphone for these people"

    Does anyone use the party chat with a steering wheel? Can I hook it up this way?

    We can't find a microphone for these people

    If you use a headset with a 3.5 mm plug and 3 rings on the connector, know that there are two standards for those headset connectors called "OMTP" and "CTIA".

    If you have 3 headsets with a OMTP setup, then the headset is "talking" to the ground pin of the controller, and the controller is "listening" for the microphone on the ground-pin of the headset.

    You need to get a CTIA to OMTP adapter, which simply reverses these two contacts. You can get these adapters online or in most cellphone stores.

    We cant find a microphone for these people.

    What do you use for chatting: Xbox One Chat Headset, Stereo Headset, or a 3rd party headset?

    When you check System>Settings>Network, do you have a IPv6 address?

    Support for IPv6 on xbox one has more detail which may assist you.

    What’s IPv6?

    Internet Protocol version 6 is the most current network protocol, bringing several improvements over IPv4. Most important, IPv6 expands the number of possible IP addresses (the unique numbers that represent every device on the internet).
    And—most useful for Xbox—the expansion removes the need for
    Network Address Translation (NAT)
    , which can interfere with multiplayer gaming and chat over IPv4 networks

    Hello KP,

    We understand that you're experiencing an issue concerning the message of not being able to find a microphone for your account on your Xbox One console.

    This can either be due to the headset itself, or this could also be because of the current network connection.

    To test this, attempt to follow both our Xbox One Chat Headset troubleshooting and
    Xbox One network connection solution support articles for assistance with checking both of these considerations.

    Try this out and let us know the results.

    Best wishes!
