Any FFMpeg Gurus on here?

Hey all, I'm in the midst of digitizing some old PAL format family camcorder tapes from the 80's. I have an Easy Cap USB device as follows: Bus 007 Device 007: ID 1b71:3002 Fushicai USBTV007 Video Grabber [EasyCAP] Initially I was looking for something similar to the old VirtualDUB software for wind...

Re: New Threadripper 3960x, No Audio

Okay. Not that this is of any help whatsoever, I did find the specs for your audio setup: 1 x Realtek® ALC4050H codec+1 x Realtek® ALC1220-VB codec (Rear audio) 1 x Realtek® ALC4050H codec+1 x ESS SABRE9218 DAC chips (Front audio) Support for DTS:X® Ultra High Definition Audio 2/4/5.1/7.1-channel S...

Re: New Threadripper 3960x, No Audio

The syntax doesn't matter as far as underscores and hyphens goes. They are treated the same. You can leave the present one as is. We are ordering certain id's with what I gave you, so it should work. The existing one, with hyphens, is just to make sure a USB card doesn't grab the first card number ...

Re: New Threadripper 3960x, No Audio

Okay, let's see if we can successfully reorder the card numbers this way; In the terminal enter xed admin:///etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and add this to the the bottom of the file: options snd_usb_audio id=Audio index=2 options snd_usb_audio id=Audio_1 index=3 Save the file, ignore the warnings f...

Re: New Threadripper 3960x, No Audio

Yep. /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Added the following to the end: # banishing bluthooth and wifi blacklist iwlwifi blacklist bluetooth # Troubleshooting Gigabyte Audio blacklist snd_hda_codec_hdmi This DID prevent...

Re: New Threadripper 3960x, No Audio

I don't think the Nvidia card is causing this. If you'd like to try though, blacklist snd_hda_codec_hdmi as that's the module it uses. It'll be interesting to see how the card numbers change from that. Looks like blacklist only works for external .ko modules loaded after the fact. snd_hda_codec_hdm...

Re: New Threadripper 3960x, No Audio

That figures. That's where the break in numbering happens, right after the Nvidia device. I doubt this is going to help at all, but let's see the output of cat /proc/asound/ Also, we'll probably get another Broken Pipe, but see if amixer -c4 returns anything useful. Indeed, your prediction was accu...

Re: New Threadripper 3960x, No Audio

I think I know what's wrong. Your aplay output shows cards 0, 1, 3 and 4. 2 is missing for some reason and I'm thinking this is causing the issue. I'll need some time to try to figure out how to resolve this. Just in case, make the same check with alsamixer -c3 and unmute anything muted. I wonder i...

Re: New Threadripper 3960x, No Audio

Okay, we're getting closer. Check with alsamixer -c4 if the S/PDIF connection is muted there. It'll show MM at the bottom of the column. Arrow over to the column and press the m key to toggle mute. Unmuted will show OO instead of MM, and there might be just a box, not a column. Well, we may have an...

Re: New Threadripper 3960x, No Audio

Okay, I think this will work. Install and run PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol) On the Configuration tab, one of the USB devices is set to Analog Stereo Duplex . Change that one to Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output + Analog Stereo Input then test the output. It might help to set the other profil...

Re: New Threadripper 3960x, No Audio

Hi mattlach. Let's see the outputs of aplay -l and pacmd list-cards please. It's probably just a config issue, that the second command will confirm. Thank you, appreciate your assistance! matt@Matt-Desktop:~$ aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: XFi [Creative X-Fi], device 0...

Maybe disabling automute in Alsamixer is what I need to do... Now... Does anyone know how to do this? So, I tried the command line Alsamixer. Can't seem to find any options regarding automute. It shows the USB Audio device, but offers no options for it. Tried Gnome-Alsamixer. It doesn't even show t...

Thank you, I stumbled across this thread from back in August on some other forum I am not familiar with.

New Threadripper 3960x, No Audio

Hey all, Just upgraded my aging hexacore x79 i7-3930k to a Threadripper 3960x. Great CPU. Runs very well. Downside, the Realtek sound Gigabyte decided to go with on their TRX40 Aorus Master motherboard (God these "gamer" names just keep getting more ridiculous) is not playing nice. I upgraded from 1...

Re: Upgrade from 18.3 -> 19.x fails

Alright.

Thanks for the recommendations guys.

I was hoping to not have to do a clean install, but I guess that is the best way forward after all. :/

I decided it was finally time to upgrade to 19.x I executed "mintupgrade check" followed by "minutupgrade download" and finally "mintupgrade upgrade" I tried posting the entire log of the upgrade on pastebin, but it was too large, so I'll try to summarize below. Almost immediately there wer...

Re: Spotify Repository Unsigned?

Thanks, that did the trick.

Two things I wonder

1.) How did the Software Center install it without the key?

2.) How come the first key on spotify's site didn't work?

Strange.

Appreciate the help though!
