    please report 1.2b1-specific issues and bugs here

    if you think the bug requires additional information or discussion, start a new topic and do only post a very brief description of the problem in this thread (as well as a link to your new topic)

    PLEASE do not post suggestions, ideas, 'thanks', 'how do I' questions here!

    Volume is still many times louder than in windows. My monitors are attenuated as much as they can be and the lowest volume in osx (1 bar) still blows my head off. 2 - 3 bars is about the same as maximum volume in windows.

    Is there a way to have edspctrl run at startup?

    -Music ok, in last betas the sound is a little "crispy" but in 1.2b0 the sound is OK, no kernel panics 1h use.
    -Played a 5.1 movie, sound is OK, all channels right but get always kernel panic in <1 min.

    No bugs after ~1 hour of use, Tiger 10.4.11 / SB Live! ct 4670/10k1
    this is looking very good.
    (Not a bug, I know, but I thought it was worth a mention)

    [edit] I spoke too soon.. sound degradation bug set in after ~90min :/

    No kernel panics for an hour or so. It seems OK. As with 1.20 sleeps to S3, then needs a kextunload-load and the sound is coming back.

    1. volume:
    Are you comparing the results with kX/Windows or Emu/Windows?..
    Is volume high on all outputs? [including digital ones?]

    2. Add a link to start up items or modify start-up scripts
    (pls search different mac forums -- if you find a convenient way, don't forget to tell us) : )

    Everything working wonderfully (no distortion, even for System sounds), no distortion EVER!!! :) - except for the following:

    Volume WAY too loud...

    Epic fail with starting movie for RealPlayer 11 Gold.
    Starting movie works fine with RealPlayer 10 Gold (wtf???)
    World of Goo fails with message "Unsupported audio - "8 Buffers" "1 Channel", or something similar. Uses irrKlang audio...

    Computer not shutting down fully - shuts down without the kX driver :(

    PS. Using retail SB-Live5.1 PCI and Kalyway OSX86 10.5.2 with Kabylkernel and smbios by Netkas (from the installer DVD).

    PPS. YOU ARE DOING A FANTASTIC JOB! KEEP GOING!!!

    I posted this message in the wrong thread, sorry. Re-posting in the bug reports thread.

    I'm experiencing sound distortion/buzzing with certain sound files. I'm trying to play back this movie trailer: Apple - Trailers - Star Trek It's the HD 1080P Trailer #2. There's definately a background buzz when playing the file. When playing with my standard OS X sound driver, it sounds fine.

    Also, FYI, I discovered yesterday that there was also terrible distortion/lag/sync issues using 1.20b0 playing this same file, but never had time to report it before 1.20b1 was released. The lag and sync issues now seem to be resolved, with just buzzing/distortion problems remaining. The driver is definately coming along nicely!

    I can't test the digital at the moment, but it is at least the same on core audio 1/2 (dock 1L / 1R) and core audio 3/4 (dock 3L / 3R).
    If people with 1820m (and possibly others) have their system volume all the way up and their speakers turned down, they would definatley be getting distortion..

    Oh, and I was getting random kernel panics running logic with the last release, but so far so good this time around!

    btw, check the output of edspctrl for mac and for win -- are they the same?
    I wonder if the issue is 1820-specific or mac-specific or analog-out specific etc.

    HEADPHONES: I hear surrounded sound instead of main (no voices when watching movies), earlier I thought it was OK in Windows (obviously I was mistaken as my drivers at that time was CT instead of kX :p).

    My model SB Audigy 2 ZS (035x) 10k2 [d8c0]. Cables are connected in front headset port. Device Manager specific info string is here PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0004&SUBSYS_20061102&REV_04\4&5855BE9&0&18F0

    EDIT: Strange thing I noticed in headphones mode is that, all system sounds (stereos) are playing correctly in headphones (which I thought would not play without surrounder/copy or Rear/Front toggle option as they're unimplemented). So its just 5.1 media having some problem...

    Greetings from Argentina
    Hi all, this is my first post here.
    I have a Sound Blaster Live! Value.
    With 1.2b1 I had sound distortion after like 7 hours of running.
    Still, thats good enough for me!!
    I can´`'t wait to have mic in, and midi!!
    Keep up the good work!!!

    Juan, if it's not too advance for you, I'd say you better do these things and provide E some info (before his next reply)

    Can't put all info load on E alone :)
