Description Cole Van Vlack 2008-06-16 16:51:14 EDT
Description of problem: I've been trying to use a USB sound card by Turtle Beach
called the Audio Advantage Amigo. When I plug the device in, I instantly hear a
concert crescendo sound, and when I autocomplete in a terminal I get a beep but
I have been unable to get sound working from other components, including when I
go system->preferences->hardware->sound. 

In fact when I try clicking test in system->preferences->hardware->sound, for
sound events when I have USB Audio selected I get the error "audiotestsrc
wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Could not
open audio device for playback."

system-config-soundcard has been removed from F9, sound cards are managed by
pulse audio now.
Comment 2 Lennart Poettering 2008-06-17 13:23:41 EDT
Start "pavucontrol" and make the USB device your default (by right clicking on
it) or move playing streams to it. PA will then remember that setting.
Comment 3 Cole Van Vlack 2008-06-17 14:06:45 EDT
This allowed me to hear my system sounds, and after I reinstalled xmms I was
able to hear audio on it as well. I'm not able to adjust the volume through
pavucontrol or by using the volume control in the upper right corner. The
system->preferences->hardware->Volume Control only one of the settings will
allow me to adjust the volume, and for some reason the lowest volume setting is
extremely loud, and as you adjust it higher it quickly becomes unbearable with

The audio also, still does not seem to work with flashplayer type things, like
Comment 4 Lennart Poettering 2008-06-26 14:29:45 EDT
install libflashsupport for audio in flash. This is documented in the release notes.

It's a limitation of the hw if the lowest volume setting is not total silence.
In one of the upcoming version we will try to extend the volume range in
software so that we can provide the same volume range on all hw, regardless of
its capabilities.
