I remember when these came out. Around the same time as the original iMac, IIRC. They made a few different versions, plain analog, USB, bluetooth. I bet if you open it up that you will find a spot to solder an analog 1/8th jack, between the amplification circuit and internal USB sound card.

You can make easy links to the Kodi Wiki Manual using double brackets around common Kodi words: [[debug log]] = debug log (wiki), [[Video library]] = Video library (wiki), [[SMB]] = SMB (wiki) , [[userdata]] = userdata (wiki), etc

I might check that out. These were actually made before the analog version. I bought them along with my lime flavored iMac (mid 90ish).

Someone figured it out for the iSub. Not sure if it would be the same for the whole sound stick set, but this might be a starting point: http://www.engineershed.com/?p=91

I didn't search too long, but a ton of people seemed interested in converting them to accept analog input, so that's a good sign. Someone has likely figured it all out, if possible.

@Memphiz: I wonder if we could ASSuME a sample rate (e.g. 48kHz) if none is given?

If no sample rate is given, assume it handles 48kHz? Worst case the audio would be too fast or slow or something. Best case it'll just work?

Thats like crystal balling if you ask me. I could think of using the requested samplerate instead. So the user could force a fixed sample rate and we would assume he knows what he is doing.

@wgstarks please try this testbuild:

http://mirrors.xbmc.org/test-builds/osx/...x86_64.dmg

Set your audio config to "fixed" and try to set it to 44100hz or 48000hz. Please report back with a debug log (wiki) (in both cases - on success or on fail).

Thanks Memphiz. Should I do anything special with the audio settings on my computer just to get this build to launch? Not sure exactly what to expect.

Ok thanks. I'll give it a shot and post the logs.

Launched with no problem.
Set audio config to "fixed" "44.1".
No system sounds. No audio with video playback. Really bad video stutter.

Debug Log

Tested with 2 videos with different audio codecs. Same results for both. Since I also don't have any system sounds I'm guessing that I won't get any audio at all.

It's a good thing one of us is paying attention.Blush

Here's the new log at 48. Worked great. Also changed output device from "default" to "soundsticks" but I don't think that would have any effect since the system was already set to soundsticks.

Thanks for the changes. Let me know if you want more testing.
