Uri,

After much frustration, I found that one problem can be the various model
microphones supplied with different model Macs. Yes, you will need to
connect a mic to the input at the back of the CI, but check that the length
of the minijack plug is correct. I use a small Quadra 605 and found that
none of the existing Mac mics worked with this model, until I discovered
one with an extra long jack pin (5 mm longer than standard) and suddenly I
could talk. Strangely, this mic does not work with all the other Macs
around here.

Also, don't leave the push to talk box unchecked. That never seems to work.
I leave it in "push to talk" mode and get reliable results.
