This is regarding my saa7133 "FlyTV mini Asus Digimatrix" tuner losing sound
in MythTV on channel changes.
I suspect strongly that
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/224265#224265 has the answer
to my problems, but I just don't have the gumption to patch my stock debian
mythtv binary. Here's what I've done instead.
Create a shell script called "mixer-fixer":
for i in 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55; do
amixer -q -c 1 sset Video,0 nocap
amixer -q -c 1 sset Video,0 cap
Then run that every minute from cron:
* * * * * /path/to/mixer-fixer
These two will set the mixer every 5 seconds. It's definitely a hack, but it
works well enough for me and it was easier than getting the source and
Hope this helps somebody.
