I'm stumped yet again trying to do the most elementary
kindergarten excercise of plugging in a cheap mic into
my early SBlive and capture the input via arecord. I've
managed to get it working, once upong a time, by turning
everything up but now I'd like to isolate exactly what
is required in alsamixer to get this to work so I can
document it at alsa.opensrc.org.
Simple wav playback...
Master 71% (unmute)
PCM 71% (unmute)
... is the above correct ?
Simple wav record...
(as above, plus...)
Mic 71% (unmute) (capture on)
Mic Boost (unmute) - optional
What do I need to add to record the SBlive mic ?
On a related note there is something strange with the
3 screen views of alsamixer... the F4 Capture page shows
CD | Mic | Video | Phone without volume sliders but hese
4 items do not appear, as is, on the F5 All screen ?
Specific bonus question, how do the 4 items on the F4
Capture page relate to the 4 similar named itmes on the
F5 All page that do show volume sliders, mute and capture
That kinda leads to yet another question, what is the
proper proccedure to deal with either or both these
sets of options ?
