Description

I've tried several versions of Uniaud drivers, including the latest, but none produce any sound on my system. Checked with both Unimix and Lbmix: all channels open. Hardware is OK: sound with Linux an WinXP.

there are a lot channels not open. like the front playback volume and the front playback switch.

When Unimix and lbmix show that all channels are open there must be a discrepancy. I'll try to provide screen captures of both

the problem is those gui's don't show all possible channels. you have to play with the cmdline unimix

comment:4 Changed 9 years ago by robh

After some trial and error with the commandline version of Unimix I managed to switch on Front Playback and set its volume to a high value. And now I have indeed sound! I may have to play a little more with it to get it completely under control. I could not find any documentation, only very brief help info.

But now I have sound, I experience that the PM version of Uniaudio Mixer does exactly nothing. Regardless how I set volumes or switches the sound doesn't change in any way.

If this is the way the eCS user has to control sound: terrible!

Following a recommendation which I found for a Thinkpad T61 on OS2world I have created a startup.cmd on my boot volume with the following contents: unimix.exe -loadp:\mmos2\unimix.ini unimix.exe -id3 -cnt0 -val31 unimix.exe -id3 -cnt1 -val31 unimix.exe -id4 -cnt0 -val1 unimix.exe -id4 -cnt1 -val1 unimix.exe -savep:\mmos2\unimix.ini exit Now sound is present from boot time.

And I have to add: my comment about Unimix is incorrect. PCM Playback and Master Playback Volume and On/Off? swithhes are working properly (have not tested the other controls). I don't understand why it seemed to be crippled two days ago.

Reformatting startup.cmd:

unimix.exe -loadp:\mmos2\unimix.ini
unimix.exe -id3 -cnt0 -val31
unimix.exe -id3 -cnt1 -val31
unimix.exe -id4 -cnt0 -val1
unimix.exe -id4 -cnt1 -val1
unimix.exe -savep:\mmos2\unimix.ini
exit

i know the gui's suck big time. but the cli version always works.
btw after you did a unimix -save you don't have to set the id's every time you boot. a unimix -load is enough.
