Question about Microsoft MS Xbox 360 Common Controller (DHC8G00004)

Xbox 360 Vontroller makes my audio fuzzy

I have an onboard soundcard and it works great. As long as I don't plug in the xbox controller.

When I plug it in, my audio sound has an anoying noize on it. This stays like that until i restart my computer with the controller unplugged.
I've tried to download new audio drivers and other xbox controller drivers but this did not work. 

I hope you can give me a quick solution 'cause I've send already mails to xbox support and microsoft who just send me links to eachother.

Thanks anyway

Same problem here. searching for a solution to this problem is like running around in circles. I'm getting to the point where I'm about to go out and buy a decent sound card and hope it works. If it doesn't I'm going to return this POS and go back to good old Logitech equipment.

Xbox 360 makes televison screen fuzzy and difficlt to see

Firstly check the system configuration blade on your Xbox 360 startup screen and check your display settings, if you've got an Xbox Elite/New Premium and have HDMI cable then it should be set as Intermediate/1080i/p settings, if you have the component cables then it should all be set as default.

If that isn't the problem and your games are still loading up with a fuzzy screen then there is either something wrong with the cables in your Xbox or your TV can't handle the graphics that the Xbox is producing and you will have to go into display settings and try setting them as either lower settings or higher settings depending on the TV you have.

It will help if you can provide details to me on your TV too, I'm not as good with TV's as I am Videogame Consoles/PC's but it will help me if I want to solve your queries further.

Check your connections to make sure that they are plugged securely into your television, if they are, make sure the selector switch on the cable is set correctly. The last thing that I would do, is to try another video cable. If that one is damaged in any way and taking on some sort of outside noise it would explain the fuzziness. Monster makes a great cable that is heavily shielded and takes on minimal noise from outside devices.

Xbox 360 controller for windows

I also registered to post the solution. This is actually a very easy fix.

Goto > Start > Control Panel
Open > Sounds and Audio Devices
Goto > "Audio" Tab
Change > "Default Device" back to your sound card rather than the x-box controller.
Press > "OK"

When you plug in the x-box controller it makes itself the default audio playback because it has a headphone jack on it.

Xbox 360 Controller for Windows causes fuzzy sound

Found a solution! Came here to post it, since I could not find the solution ANYWHERE on the internet...

Using an Xbox 360 controller or any other Xbox 360 peripheral with 95% of USB sound cards or headsets will produce HORRIBLE sound input and output. It sounds like a robot has swallowed and spat back out the waveforms. Even if the 360 peripheral is removed any USB audio devices plugged in after the fact will still sound corrupted until a fresh reboot without the 360 peripheral plugged in.

I believe that the problem is somehow linked to the "generic root hub" driver, which hasn't been updated since 2001, thanks M$.

The solution (pick one of 3):
As long as the 360 peripheral is on it's own internal virtual root hub it will not interfere with other devices. You can force it to use another root hub by doing ONE of the following:
1) Fill up your usb ports with other devices till it shifts to using a secondary root hub, then plug in the 360 peripheral. This could take up to 10 USB things, depending on your motherboard and the maximum devices on each root hub.
2) Use an extra internal PCI-USB card for the 360 peripheral.
3) Use an extra external USB hub for the 360 peripheral.

NOTE: A reboot is usually required to clear up the driver's confusion.
