Hello everyone!
I had strange goings-on this morning. Yesterday night, I left some sound
playing, which looked like it had finished allright. But on another console I
saw, that a paused mplayer had some errors and wouldn't unpause again. I quit
it and restarted. No luck, I discovered, that ALSA wasn't working properly.
So I rebooted a couple of times. The first time, no Delta soundcard at all.
I turned the computer off, felt, that the Delta was properly screwed in its
place. Yep. Rebooted, found the soundcard.
But the alsamixer settings were a bit wrong. The S/PDIFF items at thwe
beginning were set to IEC958 in-l and r, although I'd ALWAYS left them sitting
on pcm out. So were the "hw in" elements all set to the same in-l and in-r
device. The internal clock was set to iec958 input and couldn't be changed,
the default rate was set to 96000, which is always 48000.
I rebooted and could changed the internal clock to 48000, I heard a pop,
when I did it. Only after that, were aplay and mplayer -ao alsa,default
showing movement. Before then, they started and paused at 0, unable to move
forward.
Still: No Sound! I can start my jack as well. All the volume levels are
check. ALL, that I can see in the playback view.
In jack I tried using mplayer - with -ao jack) and a direct connection of
in/out ports of the card itself. No luck!
So please, what else can I do, to eliminate possibilities, that would
frighten me.
Warmly yours
Julien
