    I was able to use OBVS without any trouble in the past. I reformatted my computer, and then OBVS would not work anymore. All of my 'equipment' has not changed, except for reformatting my computer.

    When I do run obvs, I have Aero disabled. I have Turtle Beach dx11 headset. I am running the x32 version of OBVS.

    I have read this thread audio sound, more info in log file#p28886

    and I have "allow apps to take exclusive control of this device" and "give exclusive mode applications priority" disabled.

    I've tried to switch the default sound options here:

    It hasn't worked for me. (I use the headset, but my computer doesn't see it?)

    Try setting your default device to speakers.

    It does not work when I set the default to speakers.

    Could you try disabling all audio devices except for the speakers? Without OBS running, obviously.
  5. waxfreeointment New Member

    That worked! Thank you so much!

    Still means one or more audio devices are either not configured properly or are not connected properly. At least, something along those lines. I had trouble finding an exact definition for the error code but from what I gathered, it's related to an audio device not sending/receiving data.
