Re: Auto Switch between Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound Depending on Source

I have put everything back to how it was before we started our experiments.

Code: Select all

speaker-test -t wav -c 6
is working fine. Should I still change the defaults as you suggest?

Re: Auto Switch between Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound Depending on Source

Thanks for your efforts MrEen, much appreciated. Let me know if anything else pops into your head. I did notice one thing, the default sound card in AlsaMixer is a motherboard, built in Via card. The Audigy one I use (and which the system recognises as the one to use) is not listed as the default in...

Re: Auto Switch between Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound Depending on Source

Hi,
The only one I could see in MM state was Surround Phase Inversion, which when un-muted wouldn't let me adjust its level from zero. There was no sound from the rear speakers.

I cannot see a "Rear" channel at all, here's a screenshot:

Re: Auto Switch between Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound Depending on Source

Ok, so I removed the semicolon with mixed results: Stereo played stereo through the front L & R speakers, great. A 5.1 source played only through the front L & R, the LFE speaker and the centre speaker, i.e. the rear speakers were silent. I should also note that the rear speakers worked with the vol...

Re: Auto Switch between Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound Depending on Source

Thank you for your messages.
MrEen, sadly the process you suggested didn't work although I can see the logic there.

Anyone got any other ideas?

Auto Switch between Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound Depending on Source

I am running Mint 19.1 in a stock audio set up, except for the addition of Pavucontrol. My sound card is a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy model: SB0090. I take the analogue signals from the 3.5mm jacks to my various amps and speakers. Under Windows 7, without any configuration, the output for stereo ...
