His name is Marvin and he was just as surprised as I was to find no volume control. He also said they would change thier web site to indicate that information. I'm fully aware that you can't use USB software with analog modes. My concern was the lack of a volume control for the analog connection method. You can set the volume from you sound card or windows,but once you're in game,there is no way. Apparently,CM has a module or something in the works.

Now I agree that it does not say a lick of info about analog anywhere on that page so it would be safe to assume that they are talking about USB connections.

The console requires two USB ports to be connected. If the user chooses the analog connection, he/she forgoes the console, but still needs to have a spare USB port to light up the CM Storm logo.
IDK , and dont take me the wrong way it is the internet, but I knew that if using the analog connections that the software and chipset's higher functions would not work and after seeing the 2 different connections on line figured out pretty darn quick that the pod was not used in analog mode.

I will write up something on the CM Storms FAQ though that clearly states that the Tactical Pod is only available to use in USB mode tonight.

I do agree that at least volume/mute/micmute would have been damn useful via the pod.
