So, I have an iMac, 2011 model updated with latest OS and a Sennheiser U320 Headset with Mic. At the beginning of the year I set up my headset successfully with LOTRO and was able to use it to communicate. As I have not been doing much group content as of late and always have voice enabled, I did not realise my voice chat is not actually working... until recently. In the LOTRO Audio options I have Voice Enabled checked, My Sennheiser headset is selected for "sound features" yet at the bottom of the audio page, 'voice playback device' and 'voice capture device' are both greyed out and I cannot click my headset.
I have looked online for similar issues and what info I have found have been for Windows users, or not helpful for my situation.
I have double-checked my Sound settings on my Mac system preferences. My headset appears in both input and output and I have it highlighted. When I speak into my headset mic the sound levels rise, indicating my Mic is in fact working. I have seen forums suggesting the Audio MIDI Setup, however, these have been 5-6 years old and are hard to follow, for me any way - not the most tech savvy person
I have restarted my computer, tried different USB ports for my headset but nothing is working, with increased group content underway it's frustrating not being able to hear or speak to other people on LOTRO. I really do not want to have to buy another headset, especially considering the fact my Sennheiser is working out of game.
Could it be the OS updates, LOTRO updates?
If anyone can help it'd be appreciated.
