Noise instead of sound, why?

Asked by ronlut on 2014-02-28

Hi.
I have an AF9015 based dvb-t stick, worked very well on Debian Wheezy with Me-TV.
Now after upgrading to Jessie and having Me-TV v1.3.7, video is working great but instead of a sound I hear a very strong noise over the original sound. What I mean is I can barely hear the sound but hear a very very strong and annoying noise. Does anyone have any idea on what might be the problem?
The stick works well on VLC (video + sound) and worked well with me-tv before I updated to Jessie.
Playing with the audio drivers setting in Me-TV didn't helped too.
Thanks for any help.

Maybe you could try out the ubuntu package, which is newer. (1.4xx)
This version uses the vlc libs itself for playing the video stream.

Skip, Ubuntu packages are rarely able to work on Debian.

Ronlut, The Debian packaged 1.3.7 in Debian Sid works fine for me using a Terratec XXS picking up signal from Crystal Palace. The only way we can progress this is to work with the Bazaar branch of 1.3.8-SNAPSHOT. I can push my working branch to Launchpad if you can build from source. Otherwise we'll have to find a way of shipping a prebuilt distribution. Unless someone has the tools to build a Debian package.

Hello Russel,

I have Debian Wheezy 32bit, and I'am using the Ubuntu 1.4.0-0~46~precise1 deb from ubuntu right now - so at least for me it works.
I wonder if the Debian 1.3.7 already uses vlc for playback, maybe this might be the problem.

best regards,

Skip

Hi Skip,

No, 1.3.7 is using gstreamer. The best solution would be moving 1.3.x to
vlc. With that we would have a great "me-tv".

Cheers,
Fred

I think the 1.3.7 system on Debian actually depends on xine.

VLC is not a standard feature on Debian (nor Fedora), it is an extra that has to be pulled in. gstreamer is a standard dependency. So if me-tv depends on vlc it will mean a much bigger install, whereas working with gstreamer it is a very lightweight install as all the dependencies are actually a part of GNOME.

Hi Fred,

sorry to bother you - but what is the current version of me-tv? I remember, that long time ago there was a change to a client server model. Is this the difference between 1.3.7 and 1.4.xx?
I'm just a bit confused rigth now.

Cheers & enjoy your beer,

Skip

Skip,

Fred released 1.4.0 which is in the client/server mould a la 2.0.0 (never released). However Debian still package 1.3.7 which is the earlier architecture. I'm currently looking at them all to try and see which makes the best basis for a 3.0.0.

Can you help with this problem?
