    [Windows 8] Playback device

    Hi there,

    I just downloaded the final release of Windows 8 and the first thing I did was installing Teamspeak 3.

    Although I manage to connect to servers and communicate with other users, my Logitech USB set does not work in any way. When it is set as playback device, the 'no playback device found' icon appears in front of my username.

    The microphone works sometimes. When I go to options -> Playback and test the headset, the following error is shown:
    "Error opening playback device, could not open playback device."

    Is there any way I could fix this? I'm kind of frustrated right now because our clan uses TS3 as #1 priority communication system.

    Thanks in advance.

    /Edit I'm using a 64-bit version of Windows 8 Professional.

    Try a different USB Port, preferably one directly on the mainboard without any cables, hubs, switches in between. Might also be that the Logitech drivers are having issues with windows 8 still...
    I was using TeamSpeak just fine with my Roccat Headset on Windows 8 x64, though it has 3.5mm jacks.

    My built-in microphone works fine. But there's a reason why I have the headset which is better sound quality.
    Anyway, none of the 4 usb ports I have work, and they are all plugged in directly to the main board.

    It looks like TS3 is not supporting W8 at all...

    Team speak work ok with direct connection with the audio input device. Have a realtek on-board sound device.

    With my wireless headset I have the same problem.
    Windows 8 Pro 0x64
    Headset wireless HP H8000 -> connection usb
    Audio is working fine with windows, winamp, games.

    Microphone works fine with team speak, the audio output does not.

    Team speak gives error:

    ---------------------------
    Error
    ---------------------------
    Error opening playback device:
    could not open playback device
    ---------------------------
    OK

    You can try and set another format for the device in the windows sound settings (right click speaker icon in systray -> playback -> select device -> properties -> advanced)
    Try and set it to a 16bit mode.

    Also what is the current mode that was selected before changing it?

    I know this is a bit old but I was able to resolve this issue for a friend. I wasn't able to find the solution via google.

    You have to turn off 'allow exclusive access' in windows 8 for teamspeak 3 to play nicely with the device.

    Right click Speaker Icon in System Tray ->
    Playback devices ->
    Select the xbox 360 mic ->
    Click Properties ->
    Advanced Tab ->
    Uncheck both checkboxes (exclusive mode & the other)

    Then back in teamspeak force the playback and recording devices to the x360 controller. It should work just fine.

    Thanks to Chris above for pointing me in the right direction =)

    Problem with microphone/headset wireless

    Hi guys!

    So, I have a little problem with my headset.

    In Skype, and others programs the headset works properly, but if I try in TeamSpeak 3, I can talk, but I cannot listen anything.

    After connecting in some servers, appears this information:

    "The configured playback device was not found.
    Instead using: Auto-falantes (Rapoo Wireless Audio)

    Press OK or apply the changes or press Setup to change the configuration manually"

    Okay, I press setup and change settings to:
    > Playback mode: Automatically use best mode.
    > Playback device: Auto-Falantes (Rapoo Wireless Audio)

    And if I click in "Play test sound", appears this information:

    "Error playback device:
    Coud not open playback device"

    But why? In others programs the same headset works normally, I change the playback device to: "Defaut", in configuration of Windows, I put this headset as standard and nothing.

    I really use this headset in TeamSpeak too. Actually my microphone works properly, but it doesn't work as it should in Team Speak, because only the microphone is working (I can't listening).

    I have a Windows 8 32 bits, with Realtek High Definition Audio on board driver and the headset is Rapoo H8000 wireless.

    Anyone have any idea to fix it?

    Thanks for attention.

    Same goes for me.
    My mic is recognized, but my playback device is not.
    Updated TS3, updated my drivers, tried the tips written in this thread... Still nothing.
    I got a wireless Logitech headset and the new Windows 8 OS.

    Same exact issue.
    Xbox360 Wireless Headset, Win8 x64, mic works, playback does not.
    Updated everything, tried everything noted here.
    Worth mentioning - if you go into the playback settings in Windows and play 'test' in the advanced settings window it works just fine, so I'm guessing it's either a TS issue or something similar.

    I seem to have found a solution. See, there are several issues here.
    As it seems, there is something wrong with the RECEIVER driver, not the headset!
    Also, the TeamSpeak app doesn't connect to it naturally, so you need to change the way it polls for sound.

    The way to tell if you have just the driver issue or not, is in windows sound options right click the earpeice, go to properties -> advanced and try to play the test sound. If you hear it alright, just skip to step 8 in the list below. If you hear nothing, garbled or clicking sounds, follow this entire guide:

    (For good measure, uninstall all existing drivers before doing this and connect the receiver and let it auto-install first)

    1) Download (but to not install) the latest drivers for Windows 7 (from here)
    2) DO NOT INSTALL the software - instead, right click the EXE and use Winrar or 7ZIP or a similar program to EXTRACT it.
    3) With the receiver plugged in, go to device manager (right click on 'Computer' -> 'Manage' -> 'Device Manager'), find and double click the Receiver (Under "Xbox 360 Peripherals").
    4) Go to the "Driver" tab and click "Update Driver..."
    5) Now select "Browse my computer for driver software" and then "Let me pick from a list of devices..."
    6) Click on "Have Disk" and direct the dialog to "\Xbox360_64Eng\xbox360\setup64\files\driver" (of course, Xbox360_64Eng being the directory you extracted from the EXE file in step 2
    7) There select "xusb21.inf" and click "OK" until it start installing.
    8) Launch TeamSpeak and go into Settings->Options
    9) Under "Playback" in "Playback Mode" select "Direct Sound" and click "Apply".

    Now everything should work fine.

    Possible test waspi backend fix

    I currently have no way to reproduce this error. But I have a suspicion about what is wrong. I made 2 "fixed" backends for wasapi that either fix the problem, give you strange noise, or gives me more info in the logs

    In your teamspeak installation forlder in the soundbackends dir, please backup windowsaudiosessions_win32.dll and backup windowsaudiosessions_win64.dll (save them to some other place) and replace them with the 2 dll's attached to this post. Please let me know if it worked, or if not, please post a logfile so i can see what happend.
