Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000

I am participating in a LiveMeeting Webinar on SBS 2008 in about 5 minutes.

I am personally very green to the LiveMeeting stuff as the last and only one I have facilitated in the past was for the Fresno User Group (Susan Bradley) and that one was a phone in setup.

This one requires a headset, and we don't have any around!

I had to run down to the local multi-drug-computer-grocery store to grab one.

The Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 USB headset looked to be what I like in a headset: Good sized ear muffs for comfort and a decent sized head band.

Being a n00b at this stuff, it was a pleasant experience to plug in the disk to install the driver into Windows Vista, then plug in the headset and everything just worked!

*Phew* since it was a last minute jump to grab the headset! :)

Well ... the Webinar is starting! You can register here!

Wade,

The driver should be freely available on Microsoft's site.

I'm trying to use LC3000 with outlook 2007 dialer. I can hear people I call, but they can't hear me. Suggestions?

A,

Check to see which microphone, if any, your communication application has picked up as the default.

Make sure that the software has not put your mic on mute.

There may be an audio configuration utility in your software that can be used to configure both audio and recording capabilities for your LC.
