So i followed this guide to the letter and immediately the VU meters on the OBS software jumped up and down with the inputs How to setup a X1800 or X1850 Prime in OBS for Live Streaming using the 9/10 output (mixer was using channels 2&3)
A quick look at the windows driver mixer status app showed “hardware connected” and “streaming”
YAY that was easy
Turned everything off, had some tea. Came back to the set up, booted laptop, ran OBS turned on equipment, played some music… Nothing, no VU change in OBS
Checked the status app “Hardware Connected” but not streaming
Tried everything, unplugged usb cables, turned off/On broadcast mode, changed the settings in OBS. Removed and re-added the mixer.
Checked windows to ensure all apps can use MIC and no problems there.
