Some Sounds Not Playing - Check Speaker Config!

Recommended Posts

An FYI for anyone else who might encounter this problem.

Windows ran some updates and all the sudden I was only hearing a few of the normal sounds from FS2Crew and nothing from RAAS Pro.  I was hearing the FO through my headset only.  I heard all of the FA and PA calls through the speakers, but never the FA asking me if it was okay to board.  I also never heard the FO through the speakers for anything, including his short responses on the dep and app briefs.

I spent quite a while searching the forums and troubleshooting... and was about to post here for help when I found the solution on my own.

Windows had selected a 7.1 surround sound setup for my unimpressive $10 stereo speakers.  I was hearing FS2Crew from the right speaker only. but when I clicked "Play Audio Test" in FS2Crew, I heard "Audio Test In Progress", an awkward pause, then "audio test complete."

Reselecting a stereo speaker setup in my windows config solved everything.  The Audio Test now plays and I can hear the right and left channels tested in the former awkwardly long pause.

Thanks for sharing that!

Wonder why Windows would select 7.1 surround when you only have ordinary speakers?  Must be a bug in Windows.  You should report it to Microsoft.
