A couple of things - the PPC comes standard with system 7.5. That includes
Sound Manager 3.0. Adding 3.0 to the Extensions folder can cause conflicts.

Secondly, ensure that you are using the corect Plaintalk Mic for the PPC.
Also, that you are using a recent enough beta of CU which supports audio
send/receive.

The last thing - if you are on a slow link (less than 64k) then your sound
will be such a hash it may not be the effort.

I'm on a 14.4k and I can receive sound - but only as blips and blurts. When
on a fast line there are no problems. There may be a fix for this - anyone
know (like ideal data rates/compression for audio receive?).
