Hey, im on windows 7 final release 64bit. Having the same problem described above, is there any solution? (please direct me if their already is). Im currently going to try setting the compatibility to windows vista.
I have the very same issue, when I'm inside World of warcraft or other games suddenly there's no reply on ventrilo for a while, and then when I tab out and force a sound from ventrilo (by reconnecting to the server) I get the the whole past 5 min where everyone has been silent.
I have priority on high and that didn't fix anything and I'm using version 2.1 since that's what the server I am on is using so I can't do anything with direct sound like you can in 3.0
I recently installed Win7 and I started having this issue. After checking various sites and suggestions (including the screenshot posted here) nothing worked. Lastly, I tried resetting the priority of the program and thank goodness it worked.
Here is what I did:
Opened Vent and signed in.
Ctrl+Alt+Delete > Open Task Manager
Under the programs tab > Right click the program and click on "Go to Process" (this take you to the process tab)
Right click on the process, scroll down to Set Priority and set it to 'Realtime'
Unfortunately, I've had to make this change each time I login however I'm sure it can be fixed. Regardless though, this has eliminated the issue and I'm back to normal.
Oh... for reference I'm running:
Vent 3.0.5 WIN32 version
I've read where this regedit has been used to address install crashes and such however I haven't heard it used for the Ventrilo lag issues. Is this reply in response to not being able to install a vesion of Ventrilo or the actually lag issues which have occured?
