    I am getting this error. What happens is that I join a server and all of a sudden the client blue orb stays lit and can't hear what other people say. They can hear me.

    Which soundcard are you using? The log looks like the card was removed/unavailbale and could not be restored after that event.

    Does that happen every time, when you connect and start talking?
    Please try another USB port, if you use and USB Headset/soundcard.
    Update your sound card driver, if you use an onboard card.

    Teamspeak freezes/seizes

    Well my last thread got closed... because of lack info. I thought I was pretty descriptive. OK I will provide more info....

    Windows 7 x64 machine. ASUS Z87-Pro motherboard with realtek sound onboard. Using DirectSound for playback and capture. Sound device is Plantronics GameCom 780 usb headset. Have installed latest drivers with no effect...have updated usb 3.0 motherboard chipset firmware to no effect... have reinstalled the usb 3.0 hub/software and removed the sound system and headset via device manager and had them discovered again to no effect.

    The client will freeze... lock solid and some of the logged in users lights will light up as the client locks solid. The only way to get access again is to close the client and log back in whereupon at some random time the client will freeze again. This is both the 3.0.13 and 3.0.16 clients that do this. Previously I have had the soundboard software installed and everything was working prior to me updating to 3.0.16

    I do not currently have logs but if you'll tell me where to find I will provide... I turned off logging because one technote I read say that log files/chat logs might be part of the problem.

    Definitely frustrated... teamspeak had always worked and been pretty reliable until the 3.0.16 update or some other change occurred and I am struggling to find out what that was.

    New info...have logs client froze and got stale decoder detected:

    ok well removing the usb host controller and allowing the system to re-scanit at boot fixed this... go figure.
