problem with volume level after reboot

problem with volume level after reboot

Postby tux » 24 Jan 2014, 13:00

Hi all,

i am experiencing a volume level issue after each reboot.

When i boot runeaudio for the first time, mixer is disabled and volume is set to a very low level. I enable the hardware mixer temporarily, set the volume to 100% and then i disable it again. If i power off or reboot the OS, the volume level is reset, and set up to the initial level.

Is there any way that runeaudio remembers my volume settings?

Thank you in advance.

Re: problem with volume level after reboot

Postby tux » 27 Feb 2014, 17:47

I read your reply on the other thread so let's continue here regarding both the level problem and the pops and clicks!

My Dac is not asynchronus.

The main problems i have with pops and clicks are when using the NAS. If i use my external USB disk i get no pops and clicks with16/44.1 and with 24/96 i have but less that when using the NAS.

I tried all kernel profiles and many combinations of rsize and wsize. I saw no difference and at the moment i am with stock settings.

I have tested with 2-3 different pdus. The one I use at the moment is 5V/2A and it is supposed to be a trusty solution.

I see you are using SMB/CIFS for your mount. Do you have the possibility to use NFS protocol with your NAS? In my experience it performs better and solves pops/clicks problems in some cases.

I tested with an NFS share and performance was worse but i will check again.

Have you other peripherals connected to your Pi, draining power from USB ports?
Maybe your DAC is more power hungry than the average, and this could create problems to the shared Eth/USB bus. That's the Pi's Achilles' heel, all the USB related problems are because of its poor implementation. A friend of us has a similiar problem with an old adaptive USB DAC and he cannot get completely rid of pops/clicks, although not so frequent.

My dac is not usb powered. I have an external PDU for this:

http://hifimediy.com/index.php?route=pr ... uct_id=108

when i use the NAS i have nothing but the DAC attached.

To be honest i do not care about 24/96 (i just do my tests with 24/96 to test my limits). I just want a problem free FLAC 16/44.1 reproduction!

I decided to try again a NFS setup (i had tested it many days ago with another linux distro) and it seems that 16/44.1 is trouble free with this. I'll stay with this a while to test.

As far as the sound level problem, it keeps resetting after each reboot back to 67. I had that problem long ago(in my desktop installation) and i had found a solution for alsa to remember the last level setting, but unfortunately i don't remember what I had done.

I think I found a solution to the alsa volume state.

I logged in using ssh and gave the following command:

alsactl store

Now after reboot the level is always set to 100.
