Linux AudioEngine testers - Linux only
Hi all!

with my "SB Audigy 2 ZS [SB0350]" under debian/sid in 12.0~beta3 (and also in beta 1 and beta 2)

the xbmc.log got spamed with:
Code:
ERROR: CAESinkALSA::HandleError(snd_pcm_writei(1)) - snd_pcm_writei returned -11 (Resource temporarily unavailable)
(means thousands of lines like that within minutes)

Also the xbmc window cant be closed - that may be related.

Any hints where to change any setting?

Thanks in advance

But my Raw Data from Moninfo look like this:

and not like your codeblock. And i dont know what to do with it in the EEdit Manager.


Well just paste in notepad and put my remarks around:
(this is the hand work!)
(copy the first column and first row from mine and then just fil it with your data)

thanks. Now i was able to create a new edid.bin.
But for me its not working. Now i have no Crackling anymore in DTS-HD Audio because my Receiver gets no Audio Signal when i play HD Audio. Normal DTS/AC3 working fine. So i think i must go back to older kernel and Nvidia Drivers

I just installed Lubuntu 12.10 64-bit desktop version and XBMC 12.0 beta 3 from XBMC unstable PPA. I tested mkv files with DTS-MA HD and Dolby TrueHD audio tracks and HDMI bitstreaming worked "out of the box" Smile I was a little surprised, because I have understand that HD audio bitstreaming should not work with Nvidia GeForce GT220 card.

My configuration:
- Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L motherboard
- Intel E5200 Dual Pentium processor
- PNY GeForce GT 220 PCI-E 1GB Silent Edition HDMI and VGA Graphics Card
- Memory: 2 x 1GB DDR2-800 Kingston
- Kingston SS100S2/16G SSD

I installed Kernel 3.7 and Nvidia Drivers 310.19 and with my custom edid HD Audio works now. I dont know why but it doesnt matter. It works and i am happy :-)

edit: IT works alsa when i dont use my custom edid. So for me with Kernel 3.7 and Nvidia 310.19 it works out of the box
Reply
Hmz, so with 3.6 it did not
I am still using kernel 3.4, with which it works with the custom edid!

I will compile a custom kernel later this week (probably 3.7) I really hope I can get rid of the custom EDID-> yes it works, but limits my options when changing or upgrading.

Which Distribution have you installed? In Archlinux i can install Kernel 3.7 from the AUR (Arch User Repository) and for ubuntu you can get kernels here
Reply
Nope, I use OpenSuSe and they are still (checked yesterday) on 3.4

So I will compile from scratch, will cost me some time to put everything together, but in the end I will have a nice small dedicated kernel.

Ok. It is interesting if it works for you too with kernel 3.7.
If you want a RPM you can use it from here
Reply
Probably tomorrow I will have the kernel available (quite busy 2day and tomorrow).
I don't want to use a standard kernel, custom build means I can select what I want and drop all unnecessary stuff.
Reply
Oke, installed kernel 3.7 and deleted my xorg.conf.
Reinstalled a new kernel module for Nvidia (standard action after kernel compilation).

Result: No Master HD

Placed and standard xorg.conf in the standard dir (made with the GUI tool of nvidia). Rebooted.
(So no custom EDID anymore)

Result: Master HD

I am still wondering if I change back to 3.4 if it will work. If I might have made a mistake while doing it with 3.4.
Anyway I will test tomorrow.

Besides that I will further tailor my 3.7 kernel.

Big thanks, the output on my Samsung EW551 Amp is awsome! Being a pretty limited linux user, I wonder one thing, does Xbmc AE use the hw directly rather than depending alsa or any other Api? Audio in Xbmc works fine over Hdmi, but I cannot get any audio in any other App (running lubuntu on a Shuttle Xs35gsV2).

No, it uses ALSA.

Pulseaudio is used in your ubuntu frontend (i suppose).
You need to configure that one in your config screen.

Alsa works fine as backend.

Unfortunately you cannot get rid of pulse if using a complete frontend like KDE or Gnome

If this has not already been taken care of can some who's able to look into channel mappings for the AE have a look at this:
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=147170&page=2

basically 7.0 and 7.1 aac audio channels are labled differently even though the actual order is as one would have expected. But the result is as stated in this thread and the channel are outputted in the wrong order. If this is something which should be fixed in the decoder it would be nice if someone can give me a hint where or who'd be the best location to address this issue to. As stated in the thread above LAV and ffdshow (libav) share the same issue. But my guess is that they're decoding it with the defined channel order and names (at least from looking at the LAV status output) but then wrongly map/mix these channels to the actual 7.1 layout.

Otherwise I really love the new AE, just had a minor issue with 24bit 192khz flac playback through spdif where the audio began to stutter, but for me this is less important than the 7.1 channel mapping issue Smile
So thanks a lot for the good work! I really love it.

edit:
as a side note: this is a wide spread isse with 7.1 channel aac files as ffdshow and lav have the same issue, too. one of the lav developer already responded to this issue and integrated a fix (remap) for the next lav audio filter.
