[Bug 1487168] Re: [Emulated AD1980 AC97 inside Virualbox 5.0, playback] volume slider problem


the reason for no master playback volume/switch is

master rename as master surround but no headphone playback volume/switch

state.I82801AAICH {
	control.1 {
		iface MIXER
		name 'Master Surround Playback Switch'
		value.0 true
		value.1 true
		comment {
			access 'read write'
			type BOOLEAN
			count 2
	control.2 {
		iface MIXER
		name 'Master Surround Playback Volume'
		value.0 17
		value.1 17
		comment {
			access 'read write'
			type INTEGER
			count 2
			range '0 - 31'
			dbmin -4650
			dbmax 0
			dbvalue.0 -2100
			dbvalue.1 -2100

static int patch_ad1888_specific(struct snd_ac97 *ac97)
	if (!ac97->spec.ad18xx.lo_as_master) {
		/* rename 0x04 as "Master" and 0x02 as "Master Surround" */
		snd_ac97_rename_vol_ctl(ac97, "Master Playback",
					"Master Surround Playback");
		snd_ac97_rename_vol_ctl(ac97, "Headphone Playback",
					"Master Playback");
	return patch_build_controls(ac97, snd_ac97_ad1888_controls, ARRAY_SIZE(snd_ac97_ad1888_controls));

  [Emulated AD1980 AC97 inside Virualbox 5.0, playback] volume slider

Status in alsa-driver package in Ubuntu:
Status in virtualbox package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Volume Slider is only controlling PCM channel and is not controlling
  Master. In effect, Master is restricting the audio level to the
  default of approximately 45 Percent. In order to raise the Master
  Volume Level, alsamixer is capable of changing Master. Without
  manually raising Master to Max Volume, Volume Slider can only control
  volume from 0-45% which is the default level of Master.
