Description Erik Schilling 2013-08-11 10:36:40 EDT
Description of problem:
If i play music in banshee, then turn down the volume using the gnome system volume control, As soon i get under like 60% banshee suddenly mutes itself.
Even if i pull up the system volume again to maximum banshee stays muted.

If I bring the system volume to a level where banshee accepts it it is still freaking loud on my headphones. I am only able to turn it down to a decent volume via pavucontrol. Banshee however displays that volume itself as muted (icon on the right has a cross through)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
play music in banshee, turn down the system volume until banshee mutes itself, then turn it up again

Actual results:
banshee stays muted

Expected results:
banshee just becomes more silent

Additional info:
I am using headphones.
Packages are all on latest Fedora 19 status (I updated all today).
I had to configure flat-volumes = no in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf to be able to use my volume control in a proper way at all.

lspci about audio:
00:09.0 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation MCP73 High Definition Audio (rev a1)

My headphones are connected via 3.5mm line out

Hi Erik,

Could you please file this upstream as well, at https://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=banshee ? We don't really have anyone fixing issues with Banshee code at Fedora and you'd get more feedback at upstream.

Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience.
Comment 2 Erik Schilling 2013-10-05 08:44:56 EDT
I will test wether i can reproduce it on my fedora 20 system too and will forward it then (if it is the case). (might take a few days though)

Description: The same here. When I adjust the volume under 20% then banshee gets muted.
Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 14:24:26 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 11:42:53 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
