Windows 7: maximum microphone lead length?

19 Oct 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, & Mac OS X 10.9.2
maximum microphone lead length?

this is another computer too far from the tv issue.

My pc is 4mt from my tv so everything has to run under the carpet. I want a microphone for when i play games online, and i plan to run it off of the mic jack thats built into my saitek cyborg keyboard.

Now i bought 2 5mt extension cables, and am testing it with mobile phone hands free cable. it works fine when plugged into my mac (yes i know boo hiss) normally, but doesnt when its plugged into it via extension, and it doesnt work at all when plugged into my pc through either front port or rear sound card.

Now im not sure if my configuration is stopping this from happening, but im running an optical cable from my pc to my AV receiver using my pcs built in optical socket.
im not sure if using that renders the rest of the sound card useless as its already sending out a 7.2 signal to my av reciever. home cinema system doesnt have a mic in port...
