I have the G110 Keyboard, and the G35 Headset running on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and the problem is? Well, I bought this board for the Microphone and Headphone jacks, AND purchased the G35 Headset at the same time, without bothering to read the box on the G35 to find out it was a USB Headset, and not a Analog Headset like my old one.
The issue with this is, the headphone/microphone mute buttons on the keyboard don't work when your Headset is plugged into the USB port, no matter how much I would LOVE that. The microphone mute button isn't a big issue, as there is a convenient button on the Headset for muting the microphone, but I would have thought that Logitech products would work together better than this.
Considering the Keyboard cost me $80 bucks, and the headset cost me $130, I'd like to see some uniformity between the two products. Is there ANYTHING I can do to get my headset to work with the microphone and headphone mute buttons even though its a USB Headset? And, in addendum to that question, if it IS possible, is there any way for the Microphone mute on the keyboard to sink up with the Microphone mute light on the Microphone boom of the Headset?
Is there any software support that I'm missing for this? As it seems as though it would be a simple driver issue. Please give me a hand with this if at all possible.
P.S. For anyone who uses the analog format for their Headset, when muting the Headphones, will the sound go through your speakers then, and STILL allow you to use the mic? Or does it simply mute the whole sound system? If thats the case, then please ignore this until if/when the driver support is there to allow that. I'm disappointed that Logitech's own products don't naturally flow together better than this, I guess they have spoiled me with their quality up until this point. Still a solid fan of Logitech though, will always choose them over another brand.

I think it may be possible in the keyboard software to map that button to mute your Microphone through Windows...Although I'm not sure exactly how I would imagine it's possible.
However whether or not it will sync up with the G35 is a different story, maybe you can use the mute through the G35 software, but if that's not possible I doubt the red LED will come on the mic boom if it was muted through Windows.
