Description Bastien Nocera 2008-10-27 10:24:30 EDT
W: alsa-util.c: Device hw:1 doesn't support 44100 Hz, changed to 16000 Hz.
W: alsa-util.c: Device hw:1 doesn't support 2 channels, changed to 1.
W: module-alsa-source.c: Your kernel driver is broken: it reports a volume range from 18.00 dB to 18.00 dB which makes no sense.

The device is a UVC webcam, and the device uses USB audio.

$ cat /proc/asound/cards

Comment 1 Lennart Poettering 2008-10-27 10:48:05 EDT
Yepp. PA is right. Your dB range is 3072 steps between 18 to 18 dB. Which of course is bogus. Your USB hardware apparently exports bogus dB information. The USB kernel driver should detect bogus dB data and not export that to userspace.

Reassigning to kernel, since this should be filtered out by the kernel drivers, not by PA.
Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2008-10-27 14:36:46 EDT
This is an alsa problem, not a v4l problem, re-assigning.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
