Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:49 EST
Description of problem:
Rear surround channel sound level fluxuate while watching video with a
SoundBlaster Live 5.1 (4.1 Altec Lansing speakers)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Reproducable on Fedora 4, 5 and 6 (can't remember, but probably 2 and 3). Not
reproducable on Windows ME/2000/XP/2003 on same computer. This is affects
stereo and surround.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Watch a video with Realplayer, xine, etc
2. Sound will most likely will jump up and down during video
Rear sound volumes keep changing, so I have to keep adjusting rear volume.
Volume should maintain current selected state.
Could you please check the latest drivers / packages? (ALSA 1.0.14rc1)
How-to is here:
I was playing with my subwoofer. It seems that the problem stems from the
connections on the unit and is most likely not a software issue.
