Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Xbox Chat doesn't work properly..

It works fine when I'm in Xbox Live and chatting in the game, but whenever I'm in a private chat, i can still hear everyone that ISN'T in the chat just as loud as they are in the game (correct me if I'm wrong but, aren't the people that aren't in chat with you supposed to be quieter than the one that IS in chat with you??) ALSO.. if i try to chat with somebody while watching any media content or movie: I CANNOT hear them but they can hear me. I checked all the settings and tried a ton of different things but it still don't seem to work. I called Xbox and I'm just passed the warranty so they won't help anymore. Any suggestions?

    I can't seem to get the Private Chat to work at all with mine -- even when not using wireless it doesn't work!?!?!

    In a Private chat, you should ONLY hear the person in the chat with you. If you're in, say Halo, playing a Ranked playlist, everyone on your team (if not in a private chat) will come through, as well as proximity chat. But there are also game-specific settings for Halo. Not sure what game you're playing, though.

    As for during the media content, no clue. 8004myxbox should still be able to help you; you're not sending them any hardware.

If you are in a private chat, the only person you will hear is the person in the chat with you. You will not hear anyone else and nobody else will hear you.

When playing Halo Reach online I cant hear any friends in custom playlist. This is both in game and in lobby. If we join a chat party then we can hear each other fine though. When in matchmaking I can hear...


Depending on which type of chat session you are connected to... everyone needs to be in the same chat menu. Sometimes when switching from game chat to party chat you might still be stuck in game chat while others are in private chat or visa versa.

To talk to only players in your game: Press the Guide button, then select Party, Party Options, Chat Channel, and Game Chat.

To talk to only members of the party: Press the Guide button, then select Party, Party Options, Chat Channel, and Party Chat.

To mute an individual: Press the Guide button, then select Party, the player's gamertag, and Mute.

It is a possibility that you are not in the same chat session with your friends. they might be in a party chat with others while you are in game chat. (note you can only have a max of 8 people in one party chat) Or you might still be in a party chat (that everyone else has left) and they are in game chat.

In the settings menu for under Xbox dash board, there is a place to select how you want to listen, either through the stereo or TV speakers or through the headset. There is also a selection for headsset/stereo..

Xbox Live Chat don't work properly


I don't think you should hear people not in your private chat at all. Make sure you are signed into the private chat and not the game chat. Push the center button on the controller and go to chat. If you already tried this I don't know what else could be the problem. Sorry.
