    Internet Phone & Skype Update

    Hi,
    I have just updated to the latest version 3.6.0.216 of Skype and now find that when I try to use my Tevion internet phone the calls come through my pc speakers and microphone. With the previous version of Skype plus Skypemate I could make calls through my usb phone or unplug it and use the speakers with microphone if I wanted that option.
    Can anyone help and advice me how to get the use of my phone again.
    Any advice appreciated, thanks.

    Re: Internet Phone & Skype Update

    Discovered on the new skype Tools / Options / Audio Settings it keeps going back to the default setting of "windows default device" on the pull down menu at each startup, although I select "USB audio drive" and save. Re-setting skype each time to "usb" allows me to use my internet phone as before, although its now a minor nuisance to change every time at startup.

    According to a couple of threads at Skype forum Search Results you need to uninstall and reinstall your audio drivers.

    Thanks Joe, that was a help and searching for "audio drivers" on that link did produce some good threads. Obviously giving some problems.
    Cheers

    Yes, there appears to be a bit of controversy in those threads. The Skype side says just uninstall and reinstall the drivers - it is not the Skype software. The user side says that sound has been working just fine why is a Skype update forcing this. Hope you got it worked out.
