Running speaker-test and alsamixer - Christian - 10-26-2011

Hi,

I just tried the latest pvr version contributes by Gujs. It works as expected, but I have some trouble configuring "Audio over HDMI". Anyway, I would like to use specker-tst and alsamixer to configure, bugfix and test my configuraton.

alsamixer seems not to be available, but I'm sure I have used it in a previous version of openelec. Have you removed it?

The speaker-test doesn't work, because the devices are busy... is there a way to stop xbmc blocking the device?

Thanks a lot!
Christan

To my knowledge alsa has not been included as long as i can remember. The text based version (amixer) is included tho.

Hi
For running alsamixer you can look at my post here.
For using speaker-test I guess you can kill xbmc from ssh
Code:
killall xbmc
