Default PTT key not working - unable to talk even without PTT.

Just today I started having an issue with Vent in which I'm unable to make my PTT button allow me to talk (I can still hear people).

In addition to that, even if I take off PTT I'm unable to talk (mic doesn't go from red to green).

I'm using a MacBook, with a regular input/output headset if that has anything to do with it. Up until now Vent has been running flawlessly.

I've tried:
  • Enabling access for assisted devices
  • Changing my PTT key to another key (have been using command/apple)
  • Changing from a headset to internal mic/speakers
All with no luck.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

this first:
on vent main window at bottom, is 'mute mic' box checked

a regular headset won't work on a macbook as that jack is for line-level input, not a microphone. in order to use a standard headset you need a device like Griffin iMic.

I feel awfully stupid now; that was exactly the problem.

However a regular headset works perfectly fine with my Macbook, I also own a Griffin iMic, but people have reported my regular headset works perfectly fine.

Could we still try and get a fix for this problem?
I've tried the above as well, and nothing worked.
