July 12th, 2009, 05:42 PM
Hi all,

I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. For watching TV I use TvTime with Sox (for sound) in Ubuntu. Some time when I try to run SOX Intance with parameter (sox -c 2 -s -w -r 32000 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp1 -t ossdsp -w -r 32000 /dev/dsp) , I'm getting an error mention below and instance will never run.

sox soxio: Can't open output file '/dev/dsp': Device or resource busy.

Can any one help me on this Please...

Best Regards,
Vipin Balakrishnan
