on screen orbitor audio level control SOLVED
« on: May 08, 2011, 07:04:10 pm »
Hi,

The +/ -/ mute volume buttons from my on screen orbitor does not seem to work when pressed.

In alsamixer my speakers are controlled by the surround bar. Master does not have any effect on volume.

My setup consists of on board sound card and 5.1 speakers.

Any ideas what needs to be done to get the volume buttons working?

Cheers
DAn

how do you connect your speakers to your computer?

standard 3 x 3.5mm jack plugs that come out of the bass box, connect straight to my sound card.

so you have a 3,5mm jack going to the front jack, a 3,5mm going to the surround jack, and a 3,5mm going to sub+center jack?

Sounds to me, that you've mixed your fronts and the surround jacks.

Thank you posde,

Worked a treat.

Turned out to be the black sub cable. I unplugged it and volume worked. Sub works in pink connection on sound card.

I assumed things were colour coded, but obviously not.

Thanks again.
