View Full Version : [SOLVED] Error when playing sound with aplay -D hw:x,x

July 31st, 2008, 12:19 PM
I have an intel-hda sound card, according to the manufacturer's website, it's ALC889A, when I play sound using the following command


aplay -D hw:0,0 "/media/sda1/Program Files/Messenger/online.wav"
note that I also tried all the combinations hw:{0-1},{0-3}

I get the following error output


Playing WAVE '/media/sda1/Program Files/Messenger/online.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 8000 Hz, Mono
aplay: set_params:906: Channels count non available
when I use -D default instead it works properly but I want to be able to specify the device because I use alsa-pulse plugin and some apps don't work with it so I have to be able to specify the device explicity.

I don't have a .asoundrc and I'm using Hardy with the latest alsa, 1.0.16-0ubuntu4

here is my the output of lspci:

Sorry for the long post.

Actually I think this is a bug with alsa(with ALC889A) but I couldn't find enough information on the web to confirm that so I'll proceed by filing a bug if someone confirms.

I'll mark this as solved as it is no longer relevant
