[Bug 198523] Re: Optical Audio Out Plays At Wrong Speed..


Its because its not synced the frequency between the output and input..

In other words, if you play a 96 kHz audio (or 48 kHz audio) via a 44.1
kHz output, it gets faster "trying to squeeze everything in the 44.1 kHz

It could be a problem at your digital input (yamaha), but I dont think
it is there because they sense what kHz is beeing used and adapts the
input accordingly.

The error is somewhere between the kHz of what you are trying to play, what the soundcard is sonfigured to play up sounds at, and at the digital output at the card.

Its a missmatch between the kHz of what is beeing played and the
configuration of the mixer.. there lies the problem.

  Optical Audio Out Plays At Wrong Speed..

Status in pulseaudio package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  I have my 'Hard Heron' Alpha 5 Desktop computer hooked up to my Yamaha receiver through a Fiber-Optic Audio Cable.
  If I set my 'Sound' settings to go through 'Intel ICH5 - IEC958' I can get it to play sounds, but the sounds play at a faster speed than regular.  So when I listen to music the music seems to be at double speed..  I have looked around on the net for this problem and could not find anything..

  Help would be much appreciated! :)

  P.S. the sound through this cable works perfectly fine in Windows XP.
