Re: Pulseaudio 6

Same problems here on Arch with PulseAudio 6. High level of white noise and garbled audio. Problem is not just with MPD but with anything that goes through PulseAudio. If I switch MPD back to ALSA all is well.

I'd welcome any suggestions.

Regards,

John

Re: "No ALSA stream available?!" after rpi-update??

Hi, I've switched from espeak to flite, and the Alsa issues seem to have gone away. It's a shame as flite is less responsive and a lot heavier on CPU, but it doesn't seem to result in any audio instability. I have no idea why espeak doesn't play well on the Pi - it would be great if someone could fi...

Re: "No ALSA stream available?!" after rpi-update??

Well I thought I could, but I think I may be barking up the wrong tree as it's just played two streams of differing bitrates fine. It looks like espeak may be the cause - I'm aware of the stuttering problem which has been around for ages, but now espeak seems to be able to crash the entire audio sub...

Re: "No ALSA stream available?!" after rpi-update??

Hi, Thanks for the reply. I've updated to latest firmware using rpi-update, and while your aplay test works fine for me, the problems start when trying to play multiple streams of varying bitrates. aplay will just hang when trying to play the 2nd stream, and I get the following in syslog: Aug 9 15:3...

Re: "No ALSA stream available?!" after rpi-update??

Hi,

Just a bit of an update: I went back to an earlier firmware version by issuing the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo rpi-update d9eb02
Error messages have gone away and I can play multiple streams again.

So it looks like it's a bug introduced in recent firmware.

Regards,

John
