Hi,
I am trying to setup a new Hermes lite 2. I have the audio working if I set Thetis to use the onboard speakers and mic. Both receive and transmit work fine. I am using a Microsoft Surface pro 6 table with Win 10(?). When I use a wireless headset (two different models... one Bluetooth and the other wireless 2.4g dongle) I can set the receive audio to come into the head set, but when I set the headset mic in Thetis all audio goes quiet...  I have to shut down the radio and restart Thetis... and go in and redefine the audio as the on board stuff and it works. I can also assign the receive audio to the headset and leave the onboard mic defined and it all works, but the second I select the headset mic in Thetis... all quiet. Am I missing something simple?

I am running 2.9.0.8. It's been a pretty good struggle and I feel so close now.

Thanks, 73
Tony

Hi Tony,
I have had similar reports with Spark SDR which I fixed.  The problem is some bluetooth profiles can only offer full resolution audio out or compromised audio out and in, I've not tested in thetis but if there is another option in the audio device list that suggests both out and in for the wireless audio device, it is worth trying it.

I have tried a wireless headphone once and was completely disappointed.
There is a lot of latency added on top of what you normally have. For
CW, you can completely forget it.

USB-headsets work fine though.

Thanks for the suggestion, Alan. I set the audio setting in Thtis to the default windows setting (forgot the actual verbiage). It worked great. I just assigned the headset in the windows sound manager and Thetis picks it up from there.

 Performance is excellent! I can put this one to bed and off to other lessons learned.

I got around a few of tho issues using VB Potato to look at the wireless headphone mic and then select VB for the TX Audio VAC. Works well will a wireless lapel mic also.
I can set the wireless headphone/mic speakers to either run natively off the pc - or use VB as a mix out.
