XM/Music sound being output simultaneously (VISTA)
Please list your phone carrier you are using to test with.N/APlease list the manufacturer of the phone you are using to test with.N/APlease list the model of the phone you are using to test with.N/AIs the system that is listed in your CarPC specs under your user name the same system where you encountered this bug?
If no, please describe your system here.Are you able to reproduce this bug at will?
Please list the steps required to recreate the issue you are reporting.I have read that the following bug was fixed in an earlier version, but it still exists for me. I am using Windows Vista, and it's possible that the bug still exists for Vista since Vista handles sound differently:When I am listening to XM, then try to go into Music and play an MP3, the XM sound continues to play along simultaneously with the MP3 sound.I am using the Sound Blaster Audigy 2NX, USB soundcard with the Vista drivers, and an XMPCR with optical S/PDIF out going into the optical S/PDIF In of the Audigy.Please provide any relevent information regarding the issue you have encountered.
I have read on the forums about certain changes to the Sat. Radio Settings that can remedy this, but I tried all combinations of changes in the settings, and nothing remedied the problem.
For your reference, the sound-related choices I have in the Sat. settings are:
-Speakers-Creative USB Audigy 2 NX
-Line-In/Mic-In Creative Audigy 2NX
-Bluetooth Audio In
-S/PDIF In- Creative Audigy 2NX
I have tried every combination of the above settings to try and get XM audio to mute when I play an mp3, but it does not work.
I have tested this in CF and it works as expected, so it seems Vista's audio routing can be "deciphered" for this...
In Windows volume control, there is a level for S/PDIF In. If I mute that, it mutes the XM audio.
So I went into Sat Radio Settings again, and selected the S/PDIF choice for Sound Card. I tired this before, but I did it again just to make sure. When I hit Save, it mutes the XM output right away. So I think, good. I close SD and restart it just to make sure. When I restart SD, the Sat Radio settings has put the sound card setting back 'Speakers-Creative Audigy' on its own. Repeat the above steps. Same thing. No matter what I do, SD resets the soundcard setting back to 'Speakers-Creative Audigy.'
Not sure if this will help, but when I do restart SD after trying to change that setting, SD starts with a big red MUTE showing. When I click on an mp3, I hear the mp3 fine, but 'Mute' stays showing on the screen, and a dialog box comes up saying something along the lines of "It appears that your audio level is inaudible... would you like to adjust it now?" It's not inaudible though, I hear it fine.
It must be how SD is interacting with this particular soundcard in Vista? Or maybe it's just Vista's new sound engine.
Chuck, not to get off topic, but I thought I'd point something out regarding this log: You'll see that the majority of this log's size (1.5MB) pertains to every single one of my mp3's being listed as not being able to be Indexed. Thing is, when I go to the Music module and under Artists or Albums, all my music is there. I do get the error every time I start up that says that one or more of the files were not properly indexed.
Just for verification, please test on 18.104.22.168 and report back with your findings.
Here are two more points I've come across that may or may not help you in figuring this out:
1. I've discovered that the Sat. Radio Sound card setting automatically resets itself back to whatever is set as the Default sound card in Windows sound settings. That's why it kept jumping back to "Speakers-Audigy..." on its own. So, I set the 'S/PDIF In' as the default soundcard. The sat radio settings will then retain the S/PDIF setting as the soundcard. Unfortunately, the same behavior is still exhibited: You hear both mp3 sound and XM when switching from XM to mp3.
2. Every time I start XM now, I get the message that it appears my audio is inaudible, and do I want to adjust it now. When I hit 'Yes' and go to the mixer, it won't allow me to raise the "Media Playing" level. It will move with my finger when I try to raise it, but as soon as I let go of the screen, it jumps back down to zero on its own. This does not affect the audio at all though... I can hear everything fine even with the Media Playing level all the way down.
One more thing that will hopefully help: In Centrafuse, switching from XM to mp3 works without issue. In the Sat Radio settings in CF, one of the settings is called "Line-In Device" (which I assume is the same as "Sound card" in SD sat settings). One of the options for CF's Line-in Device is "None." That's what I have mine set to, and get perfect results with it.
I will report your additions to chuck. Thank you for the input.
