I'll test in on windows first then to see if the driver can detect the mute
button and give some feedback. As I said in another post I have a feeling
something odd happens with multiple mics on the system. I'll investigate
further to see if I can find a logical explanation. When I did a quick test
it seemed like all mics were operative no matter which one I selected. That
could explain why the mute button didn't seem to work. :-)
