Full Version: XBMC Audio Mixer does not change volume

I have downloaded the add-on XBMC Audio Mixer to control system volume via the GUI, however changing the volume sliders for either setting (PCM, Master etc) does not result in any change in volume.
Shouldn't it impact overall system volume and thus lowevering volume levels of XBMC also?

This is how my asound.conf looks like:

pcm.!default {
        type plug
        slave.pcm "dmixer"

pcm.dmixer  {
        type dmix
        ipc_key 1024
        slave {
                pcm "hw:0,8"
                period_time 0
                period_size 1024
                buffer_size 4096
                rate 44100
        bindings {
                0 0
                1 1

ctl.dmixer {
        type hw
        card 0
I did some further testing: I opened Alsamixer on a remote SSH connection and than changed settings via XBMC Audio Mixer. Result was that the corresponding volume bars in the Alsamixer did change, but still without effect on the overall volume.
Solved by defining the softvol plugin for Alsa. I have now as channel HDMI_volume with which I can change the overall software volume.
seems you linux guys get all the cool toys firstTongue

do you know of a similar product for winblows?
