[LINUX] HOW-TO get quickly started with Acer Aspire Revo 1600 - Guide for XBMC Dharma
#65
myrison Wrote:Thanks, OP updated!

Myrison,

I wanted to share some things that I encountered with my update to Dharma RC2 since we both have a Revo 1600 and I believe a Denon 3808ci. I used the stock xbmc Live image and have been upgrading with the package tools. I manually upgraded the Nvidia drivers to NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.21. Everything worked fine except for the multi-channel audio. My speakers were switched for each respective side/rear speakers. I wanted to share how I fixed this so others don't have to go all over the place looking.

Testing the speaker channels:
1. ssh into the Revo as root and kill xbmc. (/etc/init.d/xbmc-live stop)
2. start the X11 server w/o xbmc. (startx)
3. ssh into the Revo from a 2nd window as user xbmc (i.e. your xbmc user ID that you installed with)
4. Run the speaker test for the number of channels you have. I used 8 channels for 7.1 (speaker-test -Dhdmi -c8 -r192000 -FS32_LE)
5. note where the sound is coming from with respect to what the test is indicating. The number next to the source is used to figure out the mapping below.
6. if you have speakers switched in order, edit the /etc/asound.conf file that was mentioned at the beginning of this thread.
7. in asound.conf, find the pairs of speakers switched and swap the number of each to the right of the '.' in the ttable list. (ex. If 0.0 and 1.1 are switched, change them to: 0.1 and 1.0)
8. Save the file, reboot and start over from step 1 until the channels match up.

Here is my modified map file:

Code:
pcm.!hdmi-remap {
type asym
playback.pcm {
type plug
slave.pcm "remap-surround71"
}
}

pcm.!remap-surround71 {
  type route
  slave.pcm "hw:0,3"
  ttable {
    0.0= 1
    1.1= 1
    2.6= 1
    3.7= 1
    4.2= 1
    5.3= 1
    6.4= 1
    7.5= 1
  }
}

Hope this helps someone.
