[Bug 494099] Re: subwoofer stops working after playback ends


This bug is still present in Ubuntu 14.04.

Editing daemon.conf didn't help as mentioned before.

I'm using Intel HD audio ALC892 and analog 5.1 out.

If Audacious is paused on a stream, subwoofer remains working. As soon
as the stream is stopped, subwoofer goes silent.

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: pulseaudio

  Ubuntu 9.10.
  pulseaudio 1:0.9.19-0ubuntu4

  I have two sound cards - motherboard integrated HDA Intel and Creative
  Sound Blaster Audigy ES in PCI slot. Also I have TV-tuner Beholder M6,
  which also populates the list of sound devices.

  Audigy is connected to 5.1 amplifier through analog output jacks.

  In sound preferences I've choose "Analog Surround 5.1 Output + Analog Stereo Input" profile for Audigy card.
  On "Output" tab I've selected the Audigy card for output. Connector switch is set to "Amplifier". See screenshots.

  When I start playing some music through (for example) Rhythmbox
  everything works great: all five satellites and subwoofer works. When
  playback ends (because of my command or end of playlist or closing the
  player) and then started again by me, the subwoofer isn't work
  anymore. To get it work again, I need to go to sound preferences and
  switch soundcard in "Output" tab to internal and then back to Audigy.

  I tried changing profile to "Analog Surround 5.1 Output" and others
  with no luck. Every subwoofer-enabled profile give same symptoms.

  Player software is also unrelated. Totem shows up the same.
