Description gadxo 2006-06-18 16:14:49 EDT
Description of problem:
During  the installation of FC5. my soundcard have been detected . 
After i have configured tvtime,i got the image  but  instead of the normal sound
output on tv channels i had  a horrible noise ( gresillements). 
system-config-soundcard  works intermettency.
I try to  solve the problem by changing  few parameters in /etc/modprobe.conf
like  it is described in the alsa project documentation for my soundcard.
But  it stills don't work. 
Sorry  for the  english . 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
i add  the version of alsa.

How reproducible:
when  i try to  run system-config-soundcard i had a failure on soundcard
detection. I' don't hear any sound.
When I run mplayer  or xine  i hear sounds  but it's very low.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # system-config-soundcard  
failure on soundcard detection . 
But the model of my soundcard is right.

Does mplayer/xine work for you? Have you checked the "alsamixer" utility for
setting up your card?
Comment 3 gadxo 2006-06-24 10:36:32 EDT
Yes mplayer and xine function correctly. I used the utility alsamixer however
the channels master and master-mono does not have any effect on the sound.  Only
the channels pcm and via dxs modify the sound level.  Via dxs seems to have
taken the place of the master control.
The channel line in works when i run tvtime and the horrible noise stopped when
i mute line in.
But as i said previously only for tvtime or xdtv i have horrible noise (
gresillement) instead of normal audio output from the current tv channel.
