    Can't switch between Sirius and HD Radio in CF 3.1

    I have mitchjs's sirius interface and a boomzbox configured to work in CF 3.1. I assigned the recording line-in for sirius to be the line-in port of my sound card and the recording line-in for am/fm to be the recording device created with the boomzbox drivers. Everything works great if I only ever play one or the other, but if I try to switch between sirius and radio, things go belly up. For example, if I am playing sirius and then switch into radio, the scrolling text seems to indicate that it's locked on a station, but Sirius continues to play. If at that point, I close centrafuse and restart it, the radio station I selected begins playing at startup. Now if I go into Sirius and select a station, the radio stops playing, but it doesn't pick up sirius. If I close at that point and restart centrafuse, sirius beings playing immediately.

    I submitted this to CF support and they think it's a problem on the boomzbox side.

    i set up a sc-c1 and boomzbox hd...

    NO issues switvhing back and fourth...

    you need to define "playing"

    i did notice, CF doesnt set the mute on Sirius when going to radio...
    one thing for sure... in the radio settings, you SHOULD NOT have a PLAYBACK line SET!!!
    only the RECORD, and since CF doesnt enumerate Audio devices correctly you cant select that in XP...and have to use the external program


    sounds like you are using the word "playing" to mean i still hear it...

    double check your audio settings!!!
    which is really hard cause of issues with CF, i have pointed this out to them years ago!
    -Thanks

    since you imply buffered audio with sat... make sure the SAT PLAYBACK line is set to none

    and hopefully CF mutes it...
    i cant set that up 100% (long story), but i do know they dont PROPERLLY mute SAT, when its not inuse

    i just messed with CF in xp, very much an issue with setting of the devices
    in Win7, no issue

    now... at least we can set the device manually with editing of files

    the winmixer.log file helps!

    Sorry, this is Windows 7 x64. For both radio and satellite settings, only the recording device is set. Playback is set to none for both. Buffering is also set for both.

    Yes, by playing I mean hear it. If I'm in Sirius and switch to HD Radio, I ONLY hear Sirius. CF updates to show the station, but the only sound is from Sirius. If I'm in HD Radio and switch into Sirius, the HD Radio device mutes, but Sirius never starts playing.

    ah, at least we on the same OS

    i have no issues

    maybe they not switching thier internal audio souce...
    for buffered audio...
    i cant set up sirius as buffered audio, do to cable limitations, in a few days that will change
    or maybe your input is muted and they not unmuting it... you can check in recording devices...

    for sure not any issue with Boomzbox HD itself



    not to mention, what version of CF? v3.1.

    like i said, reviewing the mixer log...

    Code:
    Switching to Sirius:
    
    19:45:72> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 1, name = HD Radio (USB Audio CODEC ), selected = False
    19:45:92> SetMasterVolume(): device = -1, volume = 23593, vctrl = CFVOL_VOLUME
    19:47:83> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 0, name = Line In (Realtek High Definition Audio), selected = True
    
    Switching to HD Radio:
    
    20:14:76> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 0, name = Line In (Realtek High Definition Audio), selected = True
    20:14:97> SetMasterVolume(): device = -1, volume = 20971, vctrl = CFVOL_VOLUME
    20:15:00> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 1, name = HD Radio (USB Audio CODEC ), selected = True
    both set up as record inputs, buffered audio...
    clealy you can see its setting one to false, and one to true

    Here is a snippet from an abnormal execution. Here I exited while Sirius was playing and restarted:

    Code:
    ------------------->SIRIUS GOOD
    ------------------->EXITING
    
    58:54:38> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 1, name = Line In (Auzen X-Meridian 7.1), selected = True
    ************************************************************************************************************
    10/13/2010 7:59:06 PM
    59:06:47> LoadMixers(): startup
    ************************************************************************************************************
    59:06:47> LoadMixers(): Vista = True
    59:06:49> LoadMixers(): Vista default audio endpoint: Speakers (Auzen X-Meridian 7.1)(ID {0.0.0.00000000}.{1a268290-9a68-4b6d-be6a-ed510b11cae9})
    59:06:50> LoadMixers(): MinDB=-96, MaxDB=0
    59:06:51> LoadMixers(): Current Balance = 0
    59:13:58> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 1, name = Line In (Auzen X-Meridian 7.1), selected = True
    
    ------------------->SIRIUS GOOD
    ------------------->SWITCHING TO HD RADIO
    
    00:06:09> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 1, name = Line In (Auzen X-Meridian 7.1), selected = True
    00:11:82> SetMasterVolume(): device = -1, volume = 16535, vctrl = CFVOL_VOLUME
    00:12:32> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 4, name = HD Radio (4- USB Audio CODEC ), selected = True
    
    ------------------->SIRIUS STILL PLAYING - BOTH RECORDING DEVICES SHOW ACTIVITY


    The above clearly looks like a problem with centrafuse since it set both sirius and hd radio to true when going from sirius to hd radio. This next example isn't quite asclear.

    Here is another example, where I exit after HD Radio is active, but there is no sound. After starting up with HD Radio playing, I switch to Sirius and there was no sound. I switch to the media library and centrafuse started playing a mp3. Then switching back and forth between the two worked. However, I exit with either HD Radio or Sirius active and start back up, I'm still not able to bounce between them.

    Code:
    ------------------->HD RADIO SELECTED BUT NOT PLAYING
    ------------------->EXITING
    
    ************************************************************************************************************
    52:34:93> LoadMixers(): startup

    52:34:98> LoadMixers(): Current Balance = 0
    52:48:25> SetMasterVolume(): device = -1, volume = 16535, vctrl = CFVOL_VOLUME
    52:49:00> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 4, name = HD Radio (4- USB Audio CODEC ), selected = True
    
    ------------------->HD RADIO GOOD
    ------------------->SWITCH TO SIRIUS
    
    53:04:36> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 4, name = HD Radio (4- USB Audio CODEC ), selected = False
    53:05:72> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 1, name = Line In (Auzen X-Meridian 7.1), selected = True
    
    ------------------->UGH NO SOUND
    ------------------->SWITCH TO MEDIA LIBRARY
    
    55:16:29> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 1, name = Line In (Auzen X-Meridian 7.1), selected = True
    
    ------------------->SOUND!
    ------------------->BACK TO HD RADIO
    
    57:06:99> SetMasterVolume(): device = -1, volume = 16535, vctrl = CFVOL_VOLUME
    57:07:09> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 4, name = HD Radio (4- USB Audio CODEC ), selected = True
    
    ------------------->HD RADIO GOOD
    ------------------->BACK TO SIRIUS
    
    57:58:27> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 4, name = HD Radio (4- USB Audio CODEC ), selected = False
    57:59:15> RecordLine(): inputdevice = 1, name = Line In (Auzen X-Meridian 7.1), selected = True
