Question Creative Sound Blaster Live! Controls madness


Hello!

I have a really annoying problem. , since I've changed my sound card.

I used to have Creative Audigy in my machine. I have FC4 installed. After changing the sound-cards, I've enabled Kudzu at startup, shutdown my box and replaced the cards. Next, I've turned on my box and kudzu recognized new SB card and sound is working fine. I've also ran system-config-soundcard again, just to make sure. Ok, so this is great.

The ONLY thing that's bothering me is that controls (in Gnome volume Manager) are really messed up Changing Master volume is only balancing volume from front to rear speakers. Same goes for other mixers. There is really no mixer that would allow me to change volume from 0 -100 (The all four speakers at once), it's only changing balance volume from rear to front speakers

I'm not sure where else to look for this...

Btw, only in Totem-xine movie player the volume button is working as it should.

So please, any ideas? Where to look for some mixer configs? Why isn't Master working as it should?

Thank you.

Anze

Do these from a terminal (shell) :

$ su -
Password:[rootpassword][Enter]

# amixer set PCM 100% unmute
# amixer set 'Master Digital' 100% unmute

# /sbin/alsactl store

Show available controls on your sys by using amixer without arguments :

# amixer

Look for something similar to 'Master'
