What is going on with the sound settings?
« on: April 08, 2008, 10:32:22 pm »
It's looking to me like the sound settings don't work properly.

1. No matter what settings I choose for audio output the /etc/asound.conf is always:

pcm_slave.convert48k {
        pcm "spdif"
        rate 48000
}

pcm.spdif_playback {
        type plug
        slave convert48k
}

pcm.asym_spdif {
        type asym
        playback.pcm "spdif_playback"
        capture.pcm "plughw:0"
}


2. /etc/pluto/xine.conf has device hard coded no matter what settings I choose for audio output type, so basically overrides the asound.conf:

audio.alsa_front_device:plughw:0


3. When I specify multichannel analog the speaker arrangement in /etc/pluto/xine.conf is always stereo:

audio.speaker_arrangement:Stereo 2.0



This is beta 4 amd64 from DVD. Does anyone know what is going on here? And where do VDR and Mythtv get their audio device argument from?

Cheers,

Chris
