Sound Issues

Thu Aug 15, 2013 7:49 am

Users are noticing sound delays with Wheezy using 2013-05-25-wheezy-raspbian. The Emulator 'Stella' is displaying serious sound delay (it seems to be caused by a pcm_underrun). Have the sound drivers been changed? There was previously an issue with Pulse Audio drivers being made 'default' (causing slowdown or program malfunction), this isn't the case here, does anybody know of a 'Change' to the O/S sound Drivers?

I haven't tested the new Image myself and most of the problems are being reported by users of 'Retro Pie', as I don't use it its of no consequence (I have just reverted to an earlier revision). I have noted before, it would be useful to have a 'Changes' doc/log with each new revision of Wheezy so users could ascertain if they could be any problems/issues.

All changes are well documented in git. At least for me that will do just fine.

the only thing you have to do, is updating your firmware with:

sudo rpi-update
sudo reboot

that's all... :D
