Problem with using Xbox headset with Thrustmaster wheel

    Hey everyone. I followed the instructions on the Thrustmaster website and had it work properly for me once. But now my controller keeps falling asleep and I loose my chat capabilities. Anyone have any ideas. Here is what I have been doing.

    Procedure:


    Step 1: Connect the headset to your gamepad
    .

    Step 2: Power on the console with your gamepad
    .

    Step 3: In the console’s menu, log in to your profile with the gamepad.
    Step 4: Start up the game
    .

    Step 5: In the game, press the A button on your racing wheel
    .

    Step 6: Log in to your profile with the racing wheel.
    Step 7:
    You can now access multiplayer mode with your racing wheel, and use the headset

    while playing using the wheel.

    Please note:


    To avoid the gamepad automatically switching to standby mode, connect the gamepad to one of
    the console’s USB ports using the USB cable or the Xbox One Play & Charge Kit.

    yea, I have been doing this for a few weeks, but I never considered it that much of a "workaround" since I have to put the headset half in one ear and cover it up with one half of the turtle beach headset. I think there is an adapter for the TB, but just have not been able to get around to buy it yet. Ripoff at $22.

    Well after reading my own post I have realized that I wasnt plugging the headset into the USB on the Xbox. I was plugging it into the wall outlet...I am using Astros for a headset with the Headset adapter....and I agree with you its allitle high but money well spent......

    I refuse to use my Thrustmaster TX with the pedals that come with it...Im waiting for my CSP adapter from Basherboards......When I plug everything back up Ill try plugging into the Consoul itself and see if this keeps my controller from falling asleep

    I have a pair of Turtle Beach G12 (I think is the model) but they don't have the right chat connection wire, so I went to get a 2mm to 2mm wire (the kind with the 2-3 rings around it) and it was too long for the xbox controller adapter!!! WTF? Cant find any solution but to talk in a party withthe xbox headset under my TBs.

    The prong on the 2mm to 2mm adapter cable (used instead of the headset to wheel chat cable in my old 360...that was too long. Strange, because there seems to be no workaround except to buy Kinect, which I refuse to do.

    Short question: Anyone able to chat on the xbox one using a headset (if so which one) and DO NOT have a Kinect?

    I think your doing it wrong or Im misreading your post. You can purchase a 3 inch adapter cable that plugs into the headset adapter and the female end lets you plug your headset in.....I think I bought it a walmart or gamestop...I cant remember. I have the Kinect but I dont use it to chat I also am using Astro A50's..hope this helps

    I have the 3" adapter cable that came with the chat adapter that attaches to the controller. When I plug my TB g12 chat cable in (with one ring arounf it) it's dead. So I bought the 2mm to 2mm to substitute for the cable on the TB Headset. No go...it's too long even though it has two prongs and fits otherwise.

    I know this sounds stupid but did you try pluging your TB directly to the adapter??...Bypassing the jack that comes with it??...Im not even sure if this is possible since Im not infront of my Xbox. But surely there has to be a solution..There are to many Turtle Beaches out there not for it to work

    Probably did. Its the 12 model in any case. It has something to do with the rings around the adapter. They transfer different data.

    Well acording the diagram you use your 2mm-3mm adapter cable that comes with it,,if it still doesnt work you must have a bad headset

    Hmmm. This may have gotten lost since the headset worked fine with the Fanatec on the 360. I'll look for it again...thanks!
