M-Audio Revolution 5.1 and FC6
I'm in the process of installing FC6 with a M-Audio Revolution 5.1 sound
card. I want to use digital out for my music and DVD... does anyone else
currently have this setup running?

Just wanted to let everyone know that this setup is currently working
for me using the DigitalSoundHowTo
(http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/DigitalSoundHowTo). I can listen
to music and movies (in 2 channel) without a problem. I still have one
issue that I'm hoping someone can help me resolve...

When I enable AC3 and DTS passthrough I get no sound. Here is the output
of 'mythfrontend -v audio':
2007-02-02 19:10:49.482 AFD: Warning, video codec 0xa0fecb0
id(MPEG2VIDEO) type (Video) already open.

2007-02-02 19:10:49.555 AFD: Warning, audio codec 0xb9bcfb0 id(DTS) type
(Audio) already open, leaving it alone.

I am set to:
Audio output device: ALSA:digital
Passthrough device: ALSA:digital
I'm using the /etc/asound.conf from the DSHT on the Wiki. It should also
be noted that I can't get ANY sound to work in either mplayer or xine,
but I think that mostly from lack of effort since Myth is so close to
working the way I want.

I have a M-Audio Delta 410. To get the S/PDIF on it working, I had to add:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
pcm.ice_spdif {
type plug
ttable.0.8 1 # S/PDIF left...Delta 9
ttable.1.9 1 # S/PDIF right...Delta 10
slave.pcm ice1712
}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To my /etc/asound.conf (or ~/.asoundrc) file.

Then, in myth, use ALSA:ice_spdif

My /usr/local/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf has

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ao="alsa:device=ice_spdif"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You can also do something like this:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm ice_spdif
}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

at the top of your /etc/asound.conf file.

Hope that helps.

John

You da man! What I have now is this... To my /etc/asound.conf I added:

pcm.ice_spdif {
type plug
ttable.0.8 1
ttable.1.9 1
* slave.pcm digital*
}

And I also dropped that ao line in my mplayer.conf file and now mplayer
acts like it's playing the audio fine although it doesn't actually
output audio to my speakers. Then, in my MythTV terminal using
"mythfrontend -v audio" is throws 1/2 a million "waiting for space on
soundcard" messages when watching a DVD which are similar to the
messages it logs when I can actually hear sound on 2 channels... so I
think that you have me pointed in the right direction, but could those
ttable lines be different for my Revolution 5.1 card? Do you happen to
know where I might be able to research that so I can play with them on
my card?

Sorry, I left out a bit:


pcm.ice1712 {
type hw
card 0
}

ctl.ice1712 {
type hw
card 0
}

pcm.ice_spdif {
type plug
ttable.0.8 1 # S/PDIF left...Delta 9
ttable.1.9 1 # S/PDIF right...Delta 10
slave.pcm ice1712
}


A google for "ttable.0.8 revolution", turned up this:

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/doc-php/notes-full.php

Which may help you.

I posted this to the ALSA-User list, but I'll post here too cause if
it's true I have to get another card and start from scratch, again.

Here is the message I'm getting from mplayer when attempting to listen
