Sound Issues with FSX Steam Edition

Sound Issues with FSX Steam Edition

Postby hoosierflyboy » Tue Dec 10, 2019 1:53 pm

Whenever I connect to PE, I can't hear any of the radios unless I mute all of the sound in FSX. With the sound muted, or when FSX is minimized, I can hear the PE radios loud and clear, but once I unmute the FSX sound, the PE radios become inaudible, even when I open the sound settings in FSX and turn off the AI atc and turn the engine sound down. Anybody else run into this? Thanks!

Sounds like it may be an administrator issue. Have you checked that the PE software and FSX are being run as administrator?

Just closing the loop in case anyone comes across it at a later date.... it's a "helpful" feature in Windows which reduces the volume of background applications if the foreground application is producing its own audio. Solutions are posted here: ... %20changes.
