I bought a Wireless Xbox One Controller (Covert Forces) + Charge Kit a couple days back and it works fantastic on my PC. The Covert Forces version has one of those new 3.5mm Audio Jacks and I am trying to use that with some simple earplugs so I can keep murdering monsters in Witcher 3 without everyone annoying me to turn the volume down.
Now comes the problem, it doesn't work, like at all. The controller does not show up in the Audio Devices menu so I can't set it as my default playback device.
I've manually installed the drivers multiple times, I got the drivers here http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/accessories/controller-pc-compatibility, so that should not be the problem.
I've also read the other topic on here that describes how you can fix this, but you'll need an older type Xbox One Controller which I sadly don't have. Topic: http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/xbox_one_support/f/4677/t/2008400.aspx.
Is this a known problem? Is it going to get fixed? How do I make this work? Please help, etc etc.
Edit: Oh and by the way, I'm running Windows 8.1, that's usually what troubleshooters like to hear.
