When I talk with a friend on Skype, he has full-duplex sound, but I don't. Whenever I make ANY noise, the sound from his side is muted down to nothing.
I'm on a new MacBookPro using a Logitech USB Wireless headset.
I've been unable to find any settings to fix this.
first of all,
I feel your pain friend ;]
let me say this right away,
Skype is a half-duplex application, it seems that the loudest sound/noise will take the available one channel
and mute the second one.
one of the following should work for most situations :
1) use a GPRS mobile call and mute skype while keeping the video feed.
2) SIP phone such as teamspeak will do just fine, play around with the codecs on both sides for best results.
3) Viebr/fring for voice and skype for video.
4) bring up a secondary Skype with a second user name on both computers, each Skype will handle one channel, one Skype is muted but plays remote sounds, and the other is not muted but has the speakers disabled.
Good luck ;]
