View Full Version : [mythbuntu] Sound issues after upgrade

Hi Guys,

In the last couple of days i've upgraded from 8.10 ro 9.04 to 9.10 to 10.04 - mythbuntu variant.

I run a an optical SPDIF out to my yamaha amp, and have had no issues with 8.10 (except that i could never get 5.1 working - but i gave up a long time ago)

However after the string of upgrades, i now have the amp struggling to 'decode' the sound? eg, i'll get a second or two of sound, and then it will drop out? come back after a 5-10 sec delay... that sort of thing.... unless i play an mp3.. which is fine from within myth front end.. but if i try to play it from vlc on the desktop.. it doesn't work.

I'd love some help where to start to chase this down - I've tried lots of the settings within mythtv, and they seem to have done very little to change it (except of course turning off the spdif etc)

but as the problem persists in the desktop - im hoping someone here can help me track it down.. i've tried the alsa mixer etc and all the levels seem fine.. but im not sure where to start after that.

so there's some crazy shizzle going down right now..

i followed the link in that thread, - this one http://alsa.opensrc.org/DigitalOut

had some interesting results.. when i run alsamixer, if i try and go to system information (F2) it exits.. or any of the other things, played around isolated the device.. if i played a few things fine.. using mplayer and specifying the hw device.. until i tried playing a different file... and as far as i can tell the only differences is that the one that won't play properly is a 48khz vs the ones that do are 44.1khz.

so i continued reading and tried to reconfigure xine - but when i tried to select speaker arrangement on the audio preferences tab, it hung up..

NFI what is going on here.

Did you install the codecs (http://medibuntu.org) and restricted extras (xubuntu-restricted-extras)?
They reset on an upgrade.
Solves most sound and video issues... ;-)

Repo re-enabled and "xubuntu-restricted-extras" installing now.

Repo re-enabled and "xubuntu-restricted-extras" installing now.

Did you install the w32/w64 codecs too from the medibuntu sources?

not specifically..

really... 44.1k stuff plays... 48k doesn't... hmm i suppose the codec could be an issue..

w64codecs is already the newest version.

Right-click the alsa-info script link in my sig and "save as" to your user folder. Then run this command in a terminal:

sudo bash utils_alsa-info.sh

I'm still fighting this..

this is going to sound odd.. but its almost like its trying to pump two types of signal down the spdif...

even upscaling to 5.1 seems to work ok, but drops out.. the amp gets confused as to what its being told.

i read something about turning all the other sounds off.. but as i don't have the prefs/sound interface.. im not sure how i would go about it...

so i bit the bullet today and re-installed 10.04 mythbuntu from scratch... and i still have the same problem.

*tirade that would make a sailor blush ommitted*

I haven't used mythbuntu - does it not use a sound server?

Also have you unmuted the spdif entries in alsamixer? <M> key.

What is the make/model of this PC?

May 6th, 2010, 11:01 AM
really its just a cut down version of xubuntu, with the mythtv stuff already implimented...

to isolate the issue from the mythtv stuff, ive been trying the audio using vlc and speaker-test from the command line etc.

Its a Gigabyte motherboard, AMD Athlon X2 6000, nvidia 9200gt?

So this is not a standard PC, like a Compaq or HP? How many analog audio jacks are there? Digital?

SL666
May 6th, 2010, 11:12 PM
Not at all a standard pc.. ordered it specifically for a mythtv box (nearly two years ago) its got 5 drives, two dual HD tv tuners etc

hmmm lots?

this:
6 x audio jacks (Center/Subwoofer Speaker Out/Rear Speaker Out/Side Speaker Out/Line In/Line Out/Microphone)

according to the info sheet on the motherboard

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2931

and then im running audio out of the spdif on that.

Last night i loaded the 32bit version of mythbuntu - same issue, tried a live version of straight ubuntu 32bit had some unbroken sound out of it.. but i'm going to install it for a real comparison.

So that's 6 analog, 1 spdif and 1 hdmi.
You re-installed, so previous changes are undone.
OK. Update your kernel:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Now reboot so we can work with the latest kernel.
Install alsa backports:

sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-alsa-lucid-generic Reboot again.

Righty ho.. so

Current install:
10.04 ubuntu 32bit
only extras i have installed is vnc, vlc and ssh.

I am using the NVIDIA driver for my video card (9600gt)

I have unbroken sound out of the optical, from both vlc and the stock movie player.

However i do not have any surround, nor DTS passthrough etc.

Thinking i might clone this partition before i touch it.

so at least i can go straight back to a known good.

This does lead the question though.. what breaks it?

So, after loading clonezilla ready clone this partition before messing with it.. i went and messed with it... and i now have the problem.

I installed the medibuntu repository.

even with everything except the spdif and master muted, the signal to the amp gets screwed up..

as a bonus, i now have delayed audio.

SL666
May 8th, 2010, 03:38 AM
oh, and for some reason vnc doesn't work properly since this rebuild..

1. it asks for someone to unlock the default keyring before i can connect.
2. it does not refresh the screen after that.

OMFG!

I have 5.1 surround, unbroken, undelayed.

I did two things - i unplugged the spdif feed to the video card (which shouldn't have done anything - but i thought i would mention it here)

and i did the


sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-alsa-lucid-generic



so now... to go back to mythbuntu 10.04 and try that fix.

sigh...

so, in the last week i have managed to:
upgrade 3 times, do 4 fresh installs, to go back for 5.. sigh..

Thanks for helping out all, i'll report back when i've done this last bit.. :)

good news bad news.

so - i have mythbuntu 64bit re-installed, and have not had the sound issue (although between the kernel updates i may have had... noticed some peculiarity, but not tested)

So it probably means that it was the spdif cable that joined to the video card for hdmi out that was causing the issue (even though the amp is configured to not use the hdmi audio)

so "solved" but as to why this became an issue only after upgrade? nfi..

thanks for your help.
