I have no Idea what I'm doing. I understand some of that conf file.
It appears that some of the conf file has been lost from my post so I'd recommend following the link.

Mine works perfect and plays instantly now, so don't knock it.

Yesss! Sorted It.

Massive thanks to a post over at Doozan by PeterGunn. He has solved my issues as well as his own Smiley
http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,2840,3071

Here is what he done

Created /etc/asound.conf with the following configuration;
Code:
pcm.!default {
    type plug
    slave.pcm "softvol"
}
pcm.dmixer {
       type dmix
       ipc_key 1024
       slave {
           pcm "hw:0"
           period_time 0
           period_size 4096
           buffer_size 131072
           rate 50000
       }
       bindings {
           0 0
           1 1
       }
}
pcm.dsnooper {
       type dsnoop
       ipc_key 1024
       slave {
           pcm "hw:0"
           channels 2
           period_time 0
           period_size 4096
           buffer_size 131072
           rate 50000
       }
       bindings {
           0 0
           1 1
       }
}
pcm.softvol {
       type softvol
       slave { pcm "dmixer" }
       control {
           name "Master"
           card 0
       }
}
ctl.!default {
    type hw
    card 0
}
ctl.softvol {
    type hw
    card 0
}
ctl.dmixer {
    type hw
    card 0
}

and edit  /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

change this line from;
Code:
# Keep snd-usb-audio from beeing loaded as first soundcard
options snd-usb-audio index=-2

to;
Code:
# Keep snd-usb-audio from beeing loaded as first soundcard
options snd-usb-audio index=0

Reboot, and perfect sound using

aoss ./squeezeslave localhost

Brilliant, im really pleased. Controlling it using ipeng on the iphone and it sounds pretty good.

Has anyone ever got this working properly?

I have tried a different USB audio dongle which is confirmed as having no distortion on nas devices but I get distortion. Anyone got any ideas?

I've tried squeezeplay and madplay, both with same results. Both using aoss.

CPU usage is below 10%.

Can I made sound support native somehow?
6  General Category / General Discussion / Whats your usb transfer speed? optimisation? on: January 09, 2011, 01:40:58 PM
Just wondering what the normal usb transfer speed on the plug is. I have a few usb 2.0 drives plugged into the sheevaplug via a usb 2.0 hub.

I generally get around 10mb/s or just below. I was wondering if this is normal, and if there is anything i can do to speed it up?

My laptop can generally do 20mb/s + on the same drives.

I'd struggle to get one any cheaper!

I think it's a configuration issue with sampling rates but don't know enough about Linux to confirm this. Works fine with win7.
I've only got Linux as vmware on a pc so can't test it with ubuntu or anything. Guess I could try a live cd. However it may be related to the fact that to install a mixer I need alsa utils which stops OSS working

Hi All,

Im running debian squeeze and im trying to get a cheapo usb dongle to work with it so i can use squeezeslave to play audio using ipeng on the iphone.

I have got a cheap 5.1 usb dongle which shows up as Tenx Technology, Inc. TP6911 Audio Headset.

I have installed alsa-oss to get it working, and i have managed to get an output. However the output is crackly and poor.
I have tried installing alsa-utils to play with the mixer but this stops the alsa-oss working.

Im not sure if the issue is something to do with 48khz sampling or if its just rubbish. Id have no problems buying another one if someone knows another one which i better?

OR does anyone have a working asound.conf which will resolve the cracking issues?

Thanks for any help you can offer.
9  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / 2.6.35 Kernel Breaks NTFS-3g on: November 13, 2010, 04:40:38 AM
hi all

wondering if anyone can help me, i try to keep my kernel up to date.


I have tried both the 2.6.35 kernels and the 2.6.36 kernels from http://sheeva.with-linux.com/sheeva/README-2.6.36

Ever since then i have been unable to get ntfs3g to mount drives, it complains with the following;
FATAL: Could not read '/lib/modules/2.6.35.7/kernel/fs/fuse/fuse.ko': No such file or directory
ntfs-3g-mount: fuse device is missing, try 'modprobe fuse' as root


anyone got any clues?
10  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Re: iFolder Server on the Plug (Debian)? on: June 26, 2010, 01:22:12 PM
so if i had a sheevaplug, three computers, would this stuff be the stuff to use to keep all data the same on all the machines?
11  Linux Stuff / Android for SheevaPlug is Available! / Re: Install Android On SheevaPlug on: June 26, 2010, 01:15:21 PM
i take it that this is not suitable for a normal user?

i mean is it going to do anything new? as well as the stuff which we already use it for?
12  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Startup Scripts or monitor scripts on: June 02, 2010, 11:11:34 AM
Hi guys,

i was wondering if anyone can help me with scripting.

is there some way that i can make startup scripts conditional?

basically i dont always use my plug for the same thing, and to save power i dont always have all my drives connected.

basically, when i want to listen to music, i switch my music hard drive on and it automounts. the problem is twonky / squeezebox server for example dont like it when the drives not connected and seems to wipe my library.

So is there a way that i can get the startup scripts for certain apps to only activate only certain conditions? like a uuid of a drive being mounted. or just a directory being accessable for example?

thanks.
13  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Media Database Suggestions (Google Desktop Alternative?) on: May 31, 2010, 03:46:36 PM
well i tried it out on the sheevaplug... and it does the job. but i cannot find anyway that i can interface it to multiple clients (windows, iphone, linux) that really needs to be a webpage and cannot really find anything about how to do that which is a shame.

i thought there would be tons of software solutions out there for this.
14  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Media Database Suggestions (Google Desktop Alternative?) on: May 31, 2010, 10:55:52 AM
It would work, but it means id have to do it on every machine i wanted it available on.
15  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Media Database Suggestions (Google Desktop Alternative?) on: May 30, 2010, 12:42:09 PM
Yeah i realise it is, but i dont think im capable of getting it to run on my sheevaplug and then interface it into some sort of webpage for every remote pc connecting to the sheevaplug to search it.
