Muse Proto with Assist - mic not working


There is so much confusing information out there. most of it old nd no straight up guide and am not sure where to start troubleshooting,
Home Assistant 2024.2.1
I plugged the device in and adopted in ESP home and the speaker works just fine in media player with both TTS and local files. TTS works with both cloud and piper.
Now how do I test the microphone on it ? I have a wake word but speaking it doesn’t show anything in the logs.
