btw, want to say big ups to m3freak for the workup on this.

Here is what I am going to do... I am going to automate the process and make it available in web-admin... so you can just select an upgraded alsa version if your hardware requires it, keeping the rest of the world on our rock solid version.

My only fear is the people who think that they HAVE to have the newest bluest, and break something trying to get it, simply because it is there. I will try and adequately warn users not to select it if they don't need it.
I never quit... I just ping out.

so...

Either I need to put together a matrix to hard map some of the configurations to specific hardware, or I need to work out a way to test/detect it automatically.

However, for the lazy at heart... I did find this which should make your lives a little easier.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-iquik/alsa

Then we dont need to download source and compile it ourselves.

Don't mention it.  I'm glad I got my problem resolved, but if it helps you out with LinuxMCE overall, it's a bonus! :)

BTW, I've noticed lately I'm having problems getting some MKVs to play that played before without any issue.  I don't remember the exact error - I'll have to recreate it.  I'll start a new thread for this new problem.

This sounds yummy.  Can't wait to see it.
