Ventrillo and bootcamp (Mac)
I can't get voice activation or PTT to work. The PTT hotkey works for a little a few seconds, then stops working. I have a feeling the bootcamp keyboard drivers or whatever are interfering with the hotkeys, but that still doesn't explain why voice activation doesn't work.

Can anyone help?

when testing with voice-activation, set the sensitivity to 3

what version of windows are you running with bootcamp?
32 or 64bit version of windows and vent?

Windows XP, 32 bit

After further testing in the setup:

My voice replay sounds slow and deep, as if it were recording twice as fast, and then replaying in real time, causing my voice to sound twice as slow.

Direct sound input only works for a few seconds, and then stops responding altogether.

Without direct sound, I eventually get the "Ventrilo is transmitting data too fast" error.

I also get the same problem (deep, slow voice) in Audacity (recording program). But strangely, there is no problem in microsoft recorder or team speak.

I'm pretty sure it's a driver problem of some sort. Recording works correctly in some programs (microsoft recorder, TS), and ventrilo works perfectly fine in OSX. The audio driver under output and input device is "Cirrus Logic HD Audio."

If someone can provide any insight on how to fix this, it would be much appreciated.

since Audacity has the same symptom it might be a driver problem.

in vent setup/misc, try setting 'process priority=high'

[FONT=Verdana]Try changing the “sample rate” in the audio manager program for the sound device.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]From Windows Control-Panel/Sound Setup, select the Recording tab, hilite the correct recording device and click the “Properties” button. Select the “Advanced” tab and set the Default Format to the lowest sample rate available.[/FONT]
