ok so im a live noob to the nth degree. I just got it all set up with my new 360 (never did live on 1st gen xbox either) Anyway, i plug in the headset and start up graw and hop in a game. i had the little switch on the headset moved over to the left thinking that would mute the microphone. Poeple in the room started complaining about an echo in the room and I got nervous thinking i did something wrong and unplugged my headset, the problem went away apparently as they thought someone must have left the room. So how exactly does the live headset work? can I not have it and tv sound on at the same time? does everything in the room always get broadcast over the mic? ie my wife callin me a dork etc... I also noticed if i even slightly touched the area where the headset connects to the controller, it would transmit static.
coming from a pc background im a little confused.
i would rtfm but unfortunately I cant read or write.
