I think I may look at his code and see if I can get a list of compatible devices. Or devices that maybe compatible.

Still would like to know if others have seen consistent failure with this or other Startech devices.

Hi

Anybody have any experience with the Startech ICUSBAUDIOB audio device? I got one that was dead on arrival. Nothing shows up on lsusb and dmesg | grep USB shows
Code: [Select]
[  205.776071] usb 3-2: new full speed USB device number 3 using xhci_hcd
[  206.295284] usb 3-2: new full speed USB device number 4 using xhci_hcd
[  206.814525] usb 3-2: new full speed USB device number 5 using xhci_hcd
[  207.333741] usb 3-2: new full speed USB device number 6 using xhci_hcd
[  207.741171] hub 3-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 2

Should at least give me a vendor:pciid right?

I just don't want to waste my time exchanging this and having them die.
Using it for multiple zone audio with squeezeslave. They are very cheap $13US on newegg.

Thanks

Hi torontob

For my experience I have run a headless core (No MD) to just do automation. You can control this through the Web Admin portal if you are just having the automation respond to events (motion detectors, sensors tripped, sunrise, etc.) You can also install as many orbiters as you want to manually turn on or off devices or open close shades. I have done this with an old HP that ran for about $250 maybe 6 yrs ago. You could probably find a friend with one ready to go to the curb. The core just doing this does not require much computing power. For this setup I would spend very little on the PC, nothing if your crafty. You can always upgrade to make use of the other features of LinuxMCE.

Ok added both to Backports_Required in /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh.

rm xorg
rebooted
AVWizard started fine
No sound device shown
No sound
Wizard finished fine
Tried to play video
Does not play and no sound. Looks like remote is starting though.

Rebooted
Looks like it attempted to install backports after restart.
Looks like it ran into trouble.
Saw something like;
Code: [Select]
Setting up linux-backports...blah
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-44-generic

Usage: modprobe [-v] [-V] [-C config-file] ...blah
modprobe -r [-n] [-i] <modulename> ...
modprobe -l -t <dirname> ...blah

Then hung there for a while.

Rebooted
Now at startup screen says "Alsa backport modules already loaded"
Lmce starts fine
Does not play video
No sound

Removed the files you mentioned above again.
Added both to Backports_Required in /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh again
Removed xorg.conf
Rebooted
AVWizard started fine
No sound device
No sound
Wizard hangs at blinking curser after completing
Forced reboot
Startup screen says "Alsa backport modules already loaded"
Lmce starts fine
Does not play video
No sound

Anything I can do let me know

Thanks

Installation issues / Re: Failed to set up x on media director
« on: October 24, 2012, 02:59:05 am »
Ok this is solved.

The video driver was not being loaded. This is now working as of 26592. The card, as mentioned above is an "ASUS GT218 GeForce 8400 GS".
I liked it because it was fanless and cheap. Newegg like $29.00. The good news is it looks like HDMI audio is working too but not tested.

This is all due to L3mce efforts with much thanks!

Sorry my last post got lost... my fault

Yes I understand the confusion.

I have an MD that was giving me the "Failed To Setup X" issue. That is now running perfect after
[quote ]Please edit /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh
under DRIVER_260_SUPPORTED=
add 10c3
[/quote]

And is also running perfect with the core running 26592. So that issue is closed with much thanks!

I have now my hybrid/core that has always had sound issues with 10.04. I have been fixing this by updating the alsa driver to 1.0.25. I do this all outside lmce at initial install. I swap this machine between a "Production" system and development so that I keep the same hardware. I do this by swapping hard drives. I also do clonezilla but not today. It is currently set up with a fresh install of 26592 from USB iso. It does not play video or sound.
Hopefully that helps a little

Ok so for
Code: [Select]
lspci -nn | grep VGA | grep -wo ....\:....
10de:0614

I renamed the files you mentioned.
Got the new ones with wget.
Changed nvidia-install.sh and added 10de under Backports_Required
removed xorg and restarted
AVWizard started fine.
No sound device shown
No sound

Also
Code: [Select]
aplay -l
aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...

Let me know if I can do anything more. And thanks for your time.

Ok here's what I have

Installed fresh 26592.

AVWizard started fine (this usually does not happen until I update alsa driver)
No sound device shown in wizard.
Selected stereo analog. No sound at test
Wizard finished fine.

Setup wizard started fine.
No Sarah video (this usually happens when I have some sound issue)
That wizard finished fine.

Ran AVWizard again
Selected SPDIF Optical
Still no sound

Loaded some video media onto hard drive. Tried to play but would not play. Interesting though is that the remote came up. Also no sound.

Did
Code: [Select]
jim@dcerouter:~$ sudo aplay -l
[sudo] password for jim:
aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...
jim@dcerouter:~$

Plugged in that MD I was having that "Failed To Setup X" from other post.

Installed perfectly

AVWizard started fine
Sound devices showed up. Interesting to note 2 devices showed Generic and Nvidia. Audio over HDMI? Nice surprise if so.
Selected stereo analog (all I have here and what I'm planning on using)

Setup wizard started fine with the Sarah video and sound.
That finished fine.
Played same video loaded onto core from above and plays fine with audio.
This MD is good to go with much thanks to L3mce. I will update that thread to reflect that when able

I usually run a script that gets my WinTV HVR-2500 going and upgrades the asla driver to the 1.0.25 version and that gets my audio going. I had previously upgraded to 26592 after running that script and had static at the stereo analog as well as whatever sound was playing. SPDIF Optical was perfect.

I converted back to my "Production" setup which is running 26373 with the asla driver upgraded to test the stereo analog.
I ran the AVWizard
The audio device was shown.
I chose stereo analog.
No sound at the test.
Wizard finished fine.
Tried to play video and did not play (no remote this time) also no sound.

I have one more test I can run. I have an USB audio device that I have not yet used. I am planning on using this for whole house audio of which I am just starting to look at.
I would like to see how that performs under 26592.
Should I check this?

Anything else that might be help full?

Take care

Hi L3mce,

Output of sudo aplay -l before latest upgrade
Code: [Select]
jim@dcerouter:~$ sudo aplay -l
[sudo] password for jim:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

Static through analog stereo

After upgrade
sudo aplay -l

Still sound staticy on analog stereo but clear on spdif optical. I think sound was fine on the analog before but I'd like to test to see if it is a hardware issue before saying there is an issue.

I would like to also try this again as a fresh install. I had run my alsa driver upgrade script on this before the last upgrade. I should have that done by this time tomorrow.

Also video plays fine.

Once again thanks for your efforts!

Worked like a charm!

You are a saint.

You work tirelessly at this and if there is anything I can do to help you pm me.

I will convert back over to the development setup tomorrow and get you the aplay info. I'm UTC - 5 right now. So around UTC 15:00

Thanks again!

Did it on both. On the moon seems to make most sense right now.

See what she does..

Should this be done in the moon or on the core? I'm back to having the MD1 machine as a MD.

Hi l3mce,

Hi SBCC, what is this hardware?
lspci -nn | grep VGA

I have loaded lmce onto the machine that was giving me the problems with the "Failed To Setup X".
Installed with no AVWizard start. Sarah started ok and went through that. UI1 started with sound. Restarted with AVWizard and now I get "Failed To Setup X"
On that machine which was the new MD I get;
Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1031922:/home/jim# lspci -nn | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation Device [10de:10c3] (rev a2)

Check to see that you indeed do NOT have internet (ctrl alt f2) ping -c4 google.com

Also
Code: [Select]
ping -c4 google.com
gives me a good response

If you DO have internet, simply rebooting should solve everything... it will pick up and start rolling. My guess is you are using the nouveau driver.
lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A3 to be sure.

Here I get
Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1031922:/home/jim# lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A3
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation Device [10de:10c3] (rev a2)
Kernel driver in use: nouveau
Kernel modules: nvidiafb, nouveau
01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: nVidia Corporation High Definition Audio Controller [10de:0be3] (rev a1)

I will try rebooting here now

On the other machine that has the upgraded 26373 (i believe I see some 26579 software in that upgrade.) After running the alsa fix I can play video and have sound but it is bad. I'm going to run the AVWizard again there and see what that does. I will then put it back to where it was when I was adding the MD mentioned above.

I know I am kind of mixing threads here so let me know how badly I have confused you.

By the way. My external router does not clear out its client list often and I can successfully ssh into the hybrid with several IPs Seems wierd??

Thanks for responding

Let me know if I can do more.

Update;
I rebooted the MD that is currently running its own lmce install 26373 (not upgraded) and get the same "Failed to Setup X"
The post screen did show it installing the nvidia driver.

Another update;
The hybrid that I did the upgrade on that had no sound. I upgraded the alsa driver and now the pci sound device shows on the AVWizard. After selecting stereo analog (what I have to test with) I get static. So that trick it out of my bag of tricks. I'm going to set up my hybrid/core as "Normal Operating" now. If needed I can try to install that "Failed To Setup X" machine (will refer it as MD1 from now on) as an MD and see what we see as far as internet if you like.

Thanks again

Update;

Did a fresh install of 26373 and can play video. Upgraded and cannot play. All on hybrid MD.

Also noticed that core/hybrid never gets registered so must not be that and I'm just taking shots in the dark
