That's a surprise! Never realised how many "things" are in a simple KDE.....

And in the Audio Dept:

Sooo  Here's the problems:

On start up, a little black window pops up saying that Phonom can't usesomething - I guess the AC97 onboard sound - reverting to Sis S17012.

The start ding dong sounds like the crystal set I built in the 50s.... 180% distortion.

Kaffeine can only see one of the 2 DVD players (Master & Slave on an ide cable) and playback is monstrously distorted.. And I don't appear to be able to set the audio-cd-device in the xine parameters...

I've opened KMix, the only controls which appears to affect Kaffeine playback is PCM & Master- the CD control seems to have no effect.

Rythmn box used to see both, now it won't even recognise a disc.... But will play one of the radio channels without distortion. Aaaah---muted the mic in Kmix & distortion has vanished!

Alsamixer either does nothing (stat up), or takes 100% CPU cycles if I click on anything,

I tried to yumex the xine -lib-extras-freeworld & keep getting
Missing Dependency: xine-lib(plugin-abi) = 1.24 is needed by package xine-lib-extras-freeworld-1.1.15-4.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free) Thought that maybe removing xine-lib & letting extras pull it in fresh might help.. but taking off xine-lib wants to take out most of kde... so didn't do that!!

Tried to play a commercial DVD; Dragon says it doesn't have the right plugins ( in extras-freeworld??). Other players "sometimes they sits & thinks, sometimes they just sits"

Tried to run Skype... Berfore I got the webcam to work, I had sound. Now I have video, I only (most times) only have incoming sound. I'm offered as sound input
Default Device
SiS S17012 ( hwSI7012,0)
SiS S17012 ( hwSI7012,1)
SiS S17012 ( plughwSI7012,0)
SiS S17012 ( plughwSI7012,1)
2 connections for the mic on the Webcam,
HDMI
Pulse

"Test sound" produces nothing, "Test call" gives me the Skype sounds but nothing back from my voice.....

Does anyone know of a way to check what's what? Can I (should I) disable various "layers" of SW ?

What's the difference between the hw 0 & 1 in Skype; between hw & plughw; why does KMix offer me mic1 & mic2; what does the "capture" do in kmix?

HEEEeeeeeeelp!  Please!!

Dave
