Unhappy Crystal cs46xx (Hercules GTXP), ALSA, no Subwoofer/Rear/Center output


I've looked around for an answer to this but I haven't really been able to find anyone who had the problem and fixed it.

On the Game Theater XP (GTXP) the breakout box has outputs for Sub, Center, and Rear (surround) channels. The output doesn't work for any of them. I have the most recent ALSA drivers installed (1.03) and I have messed around with all of the volume settings. I would assume adjusting the LFE volume would adjust volume for the sub, but it doesn't.

I have noticed my alsa.conf file has this section:

# redirect to load-on-demand extended pcm definitions
pcm.cards cards.pcm
# some links for easy use
pcm.front cards.pcm.front
pcm.rear cards.pcm.rear
pcm.center_lfe cards.pcm.center_lfe
pcm.surround40 cards.pcm.surround40
pcm.surround41 cards.pcm.surround41
pcm.surround50 cards.pcm.surround50
pcm.surround51 cards.pcm.surround51
pcm.iec958 cards.pcm.iec958
pcm.spdif cards.pcm.iec958

I can get output for pcm.front and pcm.rear

but the pcm.center_lfe link doesn't work:

aplay -D pcm.center_lfe melting2.wav
ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1056:(snd_pcm_hw_open) open /dev/snd/pcmC0D3p failed: No such device
aplay: main:502: audio open error: No such device

What am I missing?? :(

TIA

EDIT: I do know that the outputs actually work; they work in windoze just fine. But who wants to actually boot into windoze?

Well 1.0.3 is not recent. The recent stable version is 1.0.7, but IMHO its not if you count on compiling. I have an Turtle Beach Santa Cruz which has a similar chip that the Hercules Game Theater XP has. I use surround51 for the alsa device or I just use default. The command aplay is too stupid to understand that you want to play the sound on another channel instead the front channels. You will have to use a program like mplayer, xine, or vlc to output 6 channels. For mplayer, I use "mplayer -channels 6 -ao alsa:device=surround51 dvd://1". Also make sure subwoofer, center, and surround mixer level is up. Unmuting External Amplifier will help too.

If you want 6 channel output from a 2 audio channel file, you have to write some lines in $HOME/.asoundrc to include ttable to copy the channels. Though ladspa plugins does not support multiple channel output because its mono.

There is a lot information about this in this forum. If you search, you will eventually find it.

slackware 10.2 optical output problem(solved)

now works newer version of alsa disables optical out by default,enabled it. Can't test other surround channels because I don't have any dvd's with surround sound.
-----------------------------------------
I'm having problem with new alsa v.1.0.9a and gtxp 6.1 with 4630 chip. The optical output worked fine with alsa 1.0.5, but no more with v.1.0.9a, which comes with 2.6.14 kernel. RCA (main speakers) and headphones work fine. Is it possible to compile kernel with the older alsa? Or maybe there is something else causing this.
