    Road Runner Sound / Volume Troubles

    Sorry if this has already been answered:

    In Road Runner, when playing music, i start out hearing it from all four of my speakers. When I press volume down, it'll go down, but when I get to the lower percentages, i'll only hear it from the back two speakers, and very faintly. I have to push volume up once in order to hear it from all. This is with multiple volume percentages, for ex:

    Current volume is 55%.
    I want to turn it down: Press down volume a couple times, it goes to 30%.
    I can now only hear very faintly from the rear speakers.
    I press up and go to 35%.
    Now I can hear it from all four speakers at a lower volume.

    Does this make sense?
    Why would this happen.

    Also, is it possible to set a default starting volume for road runner? Ever time I restart RR it goes to 78% for some reason.


    Thanks,
    Brett

    I probably shouldn't do this but.....

    Try putting this in the start command in config--> setvol;master;30

    30 being whatever percent you want to startup at..

    ps..the 'skin commands.txt' in your RR folder is you best friend

    I think that is actually your wiring. It seems like you are using stereo sound left/right, and 1 of the channels is going to both your front speakers, and the other channel is going to both your rear speakers.

    And what volume percentages are your lines at? Like Master and Wave? And what audio channel are you using to map out sound? (master/wave/all)

    My current audio setup follows:
    M1000 Motherboard Integrated 6 Channel Audio - Setup using the FAQ for 5.1.

    Radioshack RCA Stereo Y Adapter from blue to amp rear left & right.
    Radioshack RCA Stereo Y Adapter from green to amp front left & right.
    Nothing in Red - No subs / center speaker.

    I don't really know what you mean about the volume percentages, but i'll go out and look around for that and post back.

    Thanks for the help,
    Brett

    1. I've had a ton of problems with Winamp vers 2.95. Ended up installing the latest version.
    2. Make sure your volume is mapped to master. (In RR configuration)

    I've been just fine with 2.95 but it all depends on what drivers you have installed too.

    2.

    Because you are using 2 of the line-outs (blue and green where blue is "Line-Out" and green is "Wave") to control them at the same time, you need to set the volume to map to Master. RRConfig and then a dropdown.

    And to make sure your Wave and Line-Out levels are equal so that the sound is the same in the front and the rear, Start-->Control Panel-->Sound and click on the speaker looking thing and you can then see all the little sliders for things like "master", "wave", "line-out", "CD" (never figured that one out...), "mic" and other stuff.

    I thought the default was "All" for weak soundcards or something?

    Ok, I went into the settings and switched to "Master", and it seems to be working better now. I am not getting the same problem as before, but I also noticed that when I press "Mute" now, I can still faintly hear music from the two rear speakers. Could this be a related problem?

    Thanks,
    Brett
