Debian :: SoundMax Integrated Digital Sound - Audio Disappeared

Feb 11, 2010

I have been so happy using Debian Lenny. But just lately my sound has disappeared. I have checked the system and apparently it is SoundMax Integrated Digital Sound that I have on board. I have tried lots of things to get it going but to no avail. I have the Debian CD's. Is there a chance that it might be on these and I could re-install it?

No Sound On Ubuntu 10.04 With "soundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio" Soundcard

Nov 2, 2010

i would like some help, i wanted to setup a ubuntu 10 desktop on some amd64 comp to make it a comp to watch movies and listen to music, but no luck cos i cant get the sound working. i noticed lots of ppl with same soundcard than me having the same problem. ("soundMAX integrated Digital HD Audio" its an onboard video card on my 64 bits nvidia motherboard thats about 5 years old..) old thread about this: [URL]....


-Update BIOS (not even sure if that is required step, but it generally always good idea to do that).
-Get latest ALSA drivers [URL].... I got "1.0.12rc1" but "1.0.11 final" should also do.
-Put "options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1 model=3stack" to "/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base".
-Worked for me after reboot.

i skipped all the parts about *updating, i downloaded that ubuntu install from [URL]... yesterday im pretty sure the alsa drivers should be up to date.........

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Integrated Audio / Video Podcast Player For OSuse 11.2?

Nov 24, 2010

When I was in Win XP I was happy with iTunes; now in OSuse 11.2 it has been difficult to find a functional replacement for it. Banshee donwloads my video and audio podcasts but can't replay them within the program. I have to go manually (Dolphin) to the corresponding folders and replay them using mPlayer, which is not very handy / fiendly. I tried to install Miro, and so far has not worked (see post here)

Debian :: Cannot Get Audio - Sound From Speakers

Jun 9, 2010

I've dedicated most of today attempting to get some sound out of my Debian Lenny installation and I'm getting nowhere. I've tried a varity of potential solutions and still no peep from the machine. I'm using ALSA (and ran the 'alsaconf' utility with no errors and then used 'alsamixer' confirming that the volumne is set and not muted) for sound playback but nothing works?!? Here's some of the output that may resonate to some people...





I've tried everything that I could find online and installed a variety of alsa related stuff, but at this stage my lack of experience (coming from a Windows background) is really beginning show. The only unexplored thing is that the device is not listed in the xorg.conf file, but there doesn't seem to be many mentions of this online and a possible red herring. The only other thing is that when running the 'alsaconf' utility it does show two cards installed on the system, these are: via82xx and legacy. I've always selected 'via82xx' as the other options prompts 'Probing legacy ISA cards might make your system unstable.' I'm plugging the speakers into the 'green' audio out socket.

Finally, when running videos on mplayer it does report that it is using alsa as the audio output option and it doesn't highlight are errors...Oh yeah - the speakers have been tested and do work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Select Digital Stereo Output On Nvidia Audio

Jul 27, 2010

I've done a search on google and on here regarding my issue and I couldn't see anything.

I have the following audio device;

00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
At the moment I have it playing through Analog Stereo Output. (See attached image)

The sound is mostly flawless and I haven't been having troubles with it.

But, because I play audio through my logitech speakers (2 speakers, 1 subwoofer) I should be able to get digital stereo sound shouldn't I?

From the drop down box of the attached image there are two options for Digital Stereo;

Digital Stereo Duplex IEC958
Digital Stereo IEC958 Output + Analog Stereo Input

None of them work for me. Even if I do a restart, I get no sound from Rhythmbox or Firefox.

I use the pulseaudio sound server and I have the PulseAudio device chooser installed. When I had the Digital Stereo Duplex IEC958 selected I used the Volume Meter playback to see if there was any sound coming through. Both left and right showed activity but nothing came through the speakers.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Using Non-integrated Sound By Default In Natty?

May 3, 2011

So I did the update to Natty and it went pretty smoothly, with one exception. My rig has two sound cards in it: the integrated motherboard sound card (Intel HDA audio) that I don't use, and a Sound Blaster Audigy (the original Audigy 1) that I do use.

This setup has worked fine in Ubuntu for as long as I can remember, but after the upgrade to Natty it appears that GNOME no longer knows that the Audigy is the card that's in use. It insists on routing things like volume changes via gnome-volume-control to the motherboard. I can confirm this by watching the volume levels for each card in alsamixer while modifying them in gnome-volume-control; the levels move appropriately on the integrated card, and stay stuck on the Audigy.

What makes this bizarre is that it's not that the Audigy isn't recognized -- it's shown in the "Hardware" tab of Sound Preferences, and the system plays back audio just fine through the speakers connected to the Audigy. It's just that I can't change the volume on the sound through the panel applet anymore. Normally I would fix something like this by using the Hardware tab to switch from the one card to the other, but in this case when I make that change it doesn't stick -- if I close the Sound Preferences and then open it again, it's right back to being set to the integrated audio.

Maybe this is a PulseAudio issue with older Audigy cards? I have no idea.

I can change the volume with my speakers' volume knob and my keyboard's media keys, I suppose, but I'm so used to be able to change it via gnome-volume-control that not being able to feels bizarre. Has anyone else out there with add-on sound cards installed alongside motherboard audio experienced this?

Hardware :: Integrated Sound Card Not Detected (Ubuntu)

Apr 8, 2010

I have a DFI RS482 mobo with integrated sound. I am making a car puter and only have a 2GB CF card, so I installed a server install of Ubuntu. Then I got xserver-xorg, mplayer, and fluxbox. I downloaded and installed the latest nvidia driver. Mplayer spit out tons of sound errors and that's when I realized the server install has no sound. So I installed the 'alsa', 'pulseaudio' and 'pavucontrol' packages. Now mplayer does not complain and acts like it is playing sound, but nothing happens sound-wise. Pavucontrol shows mplayer as playing sound and the volume as unmuted. However the PCM output is going to "dummy output" and the configuration tab says there are no cards to be configured.

So I think my sound card is not being detected. I don't know what to do at this point.
lspci shows "Multimedia audio controler: ATI Technologies inc. IXP SB400 AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 80)"
alsamixer fails on "function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory"
lsmod | grep 97 returns a bunch of stuff, but I'm not sure what it is.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Override The Default Sample Rate Of Digital Audio Output?

Apr 12, 2010

After some fudging around, I managed to get my 64-bit karmic install to output sound digitally to my amplifier. So far, so good. The amplifier indicates a sample rate of 44.1KHz, while it is capable of 48KHz (higher sample rate would be better, i assume). Also, more annoying, it indicates no signal when no applications are producing sounds, causing it to miss the first second of output when I unpause my music. Windows 7 outputs everything as 48KHz, apparently also outputting silence as the light doesn't blink when i pause a media player.

The question then being: How do I override the default sample rate of digital audio output (if this is even possible, googling suggested that this might be overridden by applications); How do I make my sound driver output silence when no application is outputting sound.

Additional info:
- Ubuntu Karmic x64 (dist-upgraded from jaunty)
- Exaile media player with Normal playback engine and Automatic audio sink
- Asus P5Q-E motherboard
- Philips DFA888 amplifier

Debian :: Recording Streaming Audio From Sound Card

Apr 13, 2015

Is there any way in Debian to record streaming audio from the soundcard, after it has been decoded by a player or a browser?

Of course, the best way to record streaming audio is to grab the stream directly, but with emerging technologies, before the stream grabbers catch up, it can be difficult or impossible to directly grab a stream. The Akamai HDS format is a good example of this. The fragment packets are hard to grab individually and hard to combine. Something like [URL] .... didn't work for me.

Furthermore, as technology advances, stream grab techniques will have to play catchup.

But what normally works is capture from the soundcard, after the stream has been decoded by the player or browser. I have used Total Recorder [URL] .... on windows to do this for many years.

Is there a debian package that can capture sound from the soundcard, and save it as mp3 or ogg? And will this package run on the raspberry pi?

Debian Hardware :: Audio - Random Loss Of Sound

Jan 9, 2015

I'm having problems keeping audio working. Using Sparky with 3.16.0-4 kernel on a homebuilt PC. AMD A10-7850K CPU on a Gigabyte F2A88FN-WIFI mobo.

I'm using a set of Logitech Z-5 USB speakers and I repeatedly lose all audio output. To get it back I need to do 1 or all of these steps:

1) Unplug the speakers
2) Kill all processes that may be producing audio (Chrome beta, IceWeasel, Exaile, etc.)
3) Start Alsamixer and select another source in sound card list then reselect USB card #2.
4) The weird one - Remove and then re-add the volume applet that I like to have in the panel. When I lose sound th slider gets "stuck" and will not move. It will not recover.

I may need to repeat this several times but it will come back. Not immediately after any step but after a few attempts it just begins working as long as nothing is trying to produce audio at the moment. Sometimes Alsamixer says that my USB Card has no controls when I reselect it, not every time though.

Most of the time if I have more than 1 source open at any time it is likely to die again, for instance I like to stream Google Play Music. If I pause that but leave it open, then try to watch a Youtube video or other source I will either get no audio from either source, or lose the streaming audio source when I try to restart it. Going through the above routine 1 or more times usually restores it.

I have created asoundrc.conf file to tell system to use USB audio as described here -> [URL] ..... In my case USB is # 3 in the list. So this is my file:

Code: Select allpcm.!default {
type hw
card 2
ctl.!default {
type hw
card 2

Ubuntu :: Sound: Mic Doesn't Work - Audio Input Level Graphically Shown In Sound Preferences Shows No Fluctuations In Sound

Aug 3, 2010

I was just using the mic and watched it stop working suddenly. I was in the middle of a skype test call when the graphical mixer level died down to zero in the middle of the call. When the test call was played back, the first part sounded fine then the sound got lower until it became inaudible. Since then I can't get any sound from my mic in skype.

Also, the audio input level graphically shown in Sound Preferences shows no fluctuations in sound as it used to before. The input device is enabled. I tried using Sound Recorder to record some sound clips and that worked fine. So the mic is working but Sound Preferences and Skype seem to have the mic level really low. I'm not sure what else to think considering it was working perfectly a few minutes ago. I've tried restarting, but that didn't fix it either.

Debian Multimedia :: Sound Won't Work Audio Connection Refused

i have both pulseaudio and gstreamer installed, my "multimedia audio controller" claims to be a ESS Technology ES1988 Allegro-1 in the system information window and in the report i generated it says my Audio Adapter is "MPU-401 UART - MPU-401 UART" PulseAudio tells me Connection failed: Connection refused and the volume control that came with the system says No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found. I am not understanding, here. do I need some driver that i don't have? i installed all the gstreamer plugins that seemed to pertain to volume that i could find. If i am not very much mistaken, I am using Debian Lenny.

Debian Hardware :: Playing A52 Audio Kills All Sound After Few Minutes

Mar 28, 2016

Whenever I try to play AC3 audio, after a few minutes, the audio dies and never recovers. This doesn't occur with mp3's / etc, although once the audio dies because of AC3, it's gone for good. So this is probably related to surround sound(?).

After I lose audio, speaker-test produces

Code: Select allWrite error: -5,Input/output error
xrun_recovery failed: -5,Input/output error
Transfer failed: Input/output error

K-Mixer won't even open afterwards. I flipped from GNOME to KDE because of this problem (PulseAudio freezed the system entirely).

Ubuntu :: Sound Does Not Come Out Of Headphones No Digital Output?

Sep 29, 2010

Sound comes out of my laptop speakers, but only when hardware is selected as "Analog Stereo". "Digital Stereo" does not function at all. I don't think this is a priority though.

More importantly, my headphones do not have sound unless it is only partway plugged into the headphone jack. However, this does not help as sound is still coming out of my speakers. The instant I plug it all the way in, the sound disappears from both speakers and headphones. I have not tested this with multiple headphones (no access), but these ones work just fine in Windows 7 plugged in all the way.

I have tried an amazing number of things back in '09 when I was running 9.10, but gave up as no one could provide the answer. The threads that are related are:
[URL] (Don't worry about read-only file stuff, that is all resolved) [URL]

I am now on a FRESH install of 10.04 Lucid Lynx, so any changes I made in attempt to fix it is gone.

Looking into alsamixer, I found that there is a headphones column, but no bar. It just says it's on. So headphones don't seem to have their own level of volume that's set too low.

Here are some outputs: lcat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec:

Codec: Realtek ALC663
Codec: Nvidia MCP78 HDMI

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Terratec EWX 24 96 : No Sound With Digital Input

I'm using a terratec EWX 24 96 sound card with ubuntu studio, and I have sound with the digital output, I have no sound with the digital input.

I had sound with the same configuration in Windows XP, and all the hardware is ok.

I think I have no sound at all, with Ardour or Rosegarden, that's like if the digital input was not here in jack.

Ubuntu :: Acer Revo, Audio Devices Disappeared?

Jul 17, 2010

I've just been setting up my new Revo with Ubuntu for use as a HTPC with XBMC etc..
Previously I had audio coming out through HDMI, but now I have lost all devices under the sound settings.

I was using alsa mixer, is there any way of getting this working again? A HTPC without sound is a bit useless!

I can't really say what I've done, as I took a few approaches to it, but I've tried to remove everything so it's back to normal. I think maybe it happened after updating some NVIDIA drivers..
