[RESOLVED]"Failed to initialze audio device" when using AirPlay, other sound working - fredrik_p - 04-14-2012

Hey

I'm trying to use my AudioPro Wireless stereo hooked up to my ION box running OE 1.95.1, it's connected via USB (the wireless transmitter that is) and recognized as a USB Headset.

Sound is working fine when playing videos in XBMC, but doesn't work when streaming AirPlay music or video, I get the "Failed to initialize audio device" error msg.

Audio output is set to analogue in XBMC settings and my asound.conf looks like this:

pcm.audiopro {
type plug
slave {
pcm "hw:1,0"
# rate 44100
}
}
I've commented out the rate line because neither 44100 or 48000 results in audio not working at all.

What do I need to do to get audio working when recieving an AirPlay stream like it is when watching XBMC video?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Regards, Fredrik

Edit: Solved it by using default:CARD=Headset as custom audio output device in XBMC audio settings. All sound incl menu sounds now working.
