  • Sound Card Not Working after Installing ver 2.5

    I just did a clean install of Vortexbox ver 2.5 on my PC which had previously been running ver 2.4. The S/PDIF output for the onboard sound card worked fine with ver. 2.4, but it will not work now that I did a clean install of ver 2.5. I still have the ver 2.4 hard drive, so I have been able to verify that all of the hardware/cables are still working correctly. When I boot the server with ver. 2.4, the sound card initializes and I'm able to see light from the S/PDIF cable prior to the server getting to the login screen. However, when I boot the server with ver 2.5, the S/PDIF cable never lights up.

    I have compared the "Configure Player" screens from the Vortexbox and ver 2.4 and 2.5 are both using the same ALSA device driver. The list of audio ports is also very similar, but ver. 2.5 shows two additional playback ports. Here's info from each Configure Player page:

    Vortexbox ver 2.4:

    ALSA device list
    0 [PCH ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH
    HDA Intel PCH at 0xf7140000 irq 130


    List of audio device ports
    1: : sequencer
    2: [ 0] : control
    3: [ 0- 0]: digital audio playback
    4: [ 0- 0]: digital audio capture
    5: [ 0- 1]: digital audio playback
    6: [ 0- 2]: digital audio capture
    7: [ 0- 3]: digital audio playback
    8: [ 0- 7]: digital audio playback
    9: [ 0- 8]: digital audio playback
    10: [ 0- 0]: hardware dependent
    11: [ 0- 2]: hardware dependent

    Since the card initializes during boot-up under ver 2.4 but not ver 2.5, I'm thinking something needs to be revised with ALSA so that the correct configuration is used during booting under ver 2.5. Any advice/suggestions on how to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Problem resolved. Something changed with the ALSA device driver between version 23 and 25 of Fedora. I ultimately had to use ALSAMIXER to unmute a channel for "S/PDIF16". Vortexbox Player setting also had to be revised to "hw: 0, 1".
