I recently installed (a.k.a "plugged in") a new Plantronics .Audio 910 Headset. Upon restarting the machine, dmesg
reveals the following:
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 2
usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
input: Plantronics Plantronics BT Adapter as /class/input/input2
input,hiddev96: USB HID v1.11 Device [Plantronics Plantronics BT Adapter] on usb-0000:00:03.1-1
This is what happens when I open Skype (running as root to prevent permissions issues):
The sound is fine through the built-in soundcard. Everything can be heard properly.
When the sound device is changed to the "Plantronics BT Adapter", however, the test call gives an error message -- "Problem with sound device".
Also, when opening alsamixer -c 1
to see if there are settings to be changed on the adapter, there are two options available: PCM - which is set to "53" and cannot be changed; and Mic - which is set to "0" and cannot be changed.
Same situation in kmix
What is happening here? Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
