RIG: How to Set up With a PS4
How do I set up my RIG headset with a PS4?
Before Setting Up
Before you set up RIG with your PS4 you'll want to be sure you have a TOSlink optical cable, which is sold separately from RIG. This cable can be purchased from your local electronics retailer.You'll also want to ensure you have the latest operating system installed on your PS4, as it is required to use the voice communication features of RIG. To do this, follow the steps below:
Connecting RIG to Your PS4
In the PlayStation Dynamic Menu, select Settings > System Software Update.
Follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the latest operating system.
Configuring Your PS4 Settings
Connect the TOSlink optical cable from the optical input on the rear of the RIG Mixer to the optical output on the back of the PS4.
Connect the USB cable from the RIG mixer into an available USB port on the PS4.
If RIG is not detected by the PS4 then Output to Headphones will be grayed out under the Audio Output Settings. If this is the case, simply unplug the RIG USB cable and replug the cable into the PS4. The PS4 will prompt you to assign the “Headset” to a user. At this point, assign it to your user account and the Output to Headphones option should be available to you.
In the PlayStation Dynamic Menu, go to Settings > Sound and Screen > Audio Output Settings > Primary Output Port > Digital Out (Optical)
Under Audio Output Settings, select Output to Headphones and ensure Chat Audio (default) is selected and not All Audio.
Under Audio Output Settings, select Audio Format (Priority) and ensure Linear PCM (default) is selected.
If your voice chat suddenly stops working mid-game, press and hold the PlayStation button for around three seconds to pull up the quick settings. Select Adjust Device and ensure that Volume Control (Headphones) isn’t grayed out and that Output to Headphones is set to Chat Audio and not All Audio.
