There seem to be an issue with new-installer.
It do not contain apt-cacher-ng stuff.
Gonna solve that asap.

Not so sure that xine is going to be the issue, that seems to be transparent. The device template could certainly easily setup the basic parameters needed for PulseAudio to initialise in a basic sense..... however, I think that the PulseAudio device will likely need to be a DCE device so that it can respond to commands coming from the media plugin telling it to bifurcate and sync a stream... media plugin is the source for that coordination, not xine... it will effectively take the problem out of the hands of xine, and handle the audio at the virtual "hardware" layer, and so need to respond to some kind of DCE commands from media plugin... which in turn will need to be mod'd to know to actually send those commands to the PulseAudio device in the first place... that being said, all seems very possible and very interesting.....
Sorry I was assuming you knew what I was saying when I was refering to Modulators
In the cable industry a modulator usually takes in Composite Video and Left/Right Audio in order to pump its signal to a specific channel frequency. It the case of a computer a 1/8 stereo mini headphone plug which is Y split out to RCA style plugs.
If a core computer had multiple Audio cards within it... could it do audio switching. Does Linux allow for multiple audio cards at once to within one computer? Would they be at almost perfect sync?
If this is possible I could assign an audio card to a particular room and viola I could have a multi-room controller built within the Core.
I wouldn't need to have a bunch of cheap media directors to play audio only within them.
Is it possible to do this within a core or a media director?
Link for what I am talking about... obviously this is made for a car so range could be an issue. I will try to find some specs.
Is PulseAudio capable of providing synchronized audio playback over the network for movie players like MPlayer?
Yes! Unless your network is congested in some way (i.e. transfer latencies vary strongly ('jitter')) it works perfectly. ...
thanks for the rundown. seems like there's hope for the PSS on the eeebox yet. Did you happen to notice any performance difference between 2.1.1 and 2.4.1 other than those related to the PSS?
The xorg.conf that I have posted here is still the one we use...its generated by the AVwizard when the B202 is added (we do non manual changes at all).
Where you able to figure out the PSS issue ?I have disabled the PSS device on the eee box as having it enabled at all caused lockups.
As far as I can tell, 0810 allows upgrading (or includes) newer graphics drivers. If someone is running an 0810 alpha on an eeebox (jondecker76?) perhaps they could comment on whether they've tried the latest graphics drivers on the eeebox.
Could LinuxMCE use PulseAudio sinks? PulseAudio was incorporated into Ubuntu and implements a 'glitch-free' synchronous multi-output network sound server system. It is the best sync for a networked sound system that I have heard. It's still not perfect. Just a thought.
Hmmm... that sounds promising and definitely worth some research as Thom says.
