Strange behaviour for Envy24 (Aureal Space 7.1) @ FBSD 5.3

Postby calyx » Wed Jan 12, 2005 2:10 pm

Hello,

whenever a new Song is advanced in XMMS the left Speaker turns off totally (mono). It will then `magically' turn on after increasing or decreasing (doesn't matter, lets say adjsuting) the volume (vol.master or vol.front - doesn't matter aswell).

Do you have any ideas how I can get rid of that strange behaviour?

Greeting, Calyx

p.s.: If your XMMS volume slide won't control the mixer simply map the ossmix utility to some key with the following command (for increasing the volume use a $2+1):
/opt/oss/bin/ossmix vol.master `/opt/oss/bin/ossmix vol.master | awk -v FS=':' '{print $2-1}'`

whoops, the thing is called `Aureon' of cause... ;-)

the ugly hack to solve that problem would be to increase and decrease the volume once using the nice Song Change XMMS plugin using the command posted in my previous (just in case anyone got the same problem)

Greets, Clx

p.s.: use ugly monster.... /opt/oss/bin/ossmix vol.master `/opt/oss/bin/ossmix vol.master | awk -v FS=':' '{print $2-1}' && /opt/oss/bin/ossmix vol.master `/opt/oss/bin/ossmix vol.master | awk -v FS=':' '{print $2+1}'

Hi,

same soundcard (Aureon Space 7.1) different platform (Linux, latest gentoo 2.6.11 kernel) -> same effect :-(

I use OSS 3.99.3a. The "Mono"-Effect appears with xmms and amarok.

VIA82xxx onboard sound is also enabled (as 2nd device, obviously working, haven't tested the effect there - will do that).

Any hints for further testing/debugging?

Hi,


Try to update the OSS drivers - we found that there was some kind of timing bug in OSS that has been fixed up and perhaps this helps your problem.

If you're on FreeBSD-5.4-RELEASE, run ossupdate - otherwise download the OSS drivers from our website - the version is 3.99.3a but the internal build version is different.
