Hello friends. I have a big trouble,
I’ve got Raspberry Pi 3B and creative usb sound blaster x-fi sound card.
That is the one that the best for passthrough ac3 and dts via optical cable to my hi-fi amplifier.
My tv doesn’t support dts 5.1 passthrough and i have a lot of movies with dts codec.
2 of 3 times at the boot my raspberry doesn’t recognize that sound card, and only shows me HDMI, Hdmi + analog or ALSA default in settings gui.
That was awkful but i figured out few month ago, if I force in file guisettings.xml option:
It works, to leave that option never changed, i changed attributes on file with,
sudo chattr +i guisettings.xml
As also a solution for november/december 2017 settings crash.
Since that i loved that option, and to updated system with osmc upgrades, i detected that I need to take off attributes and put them back to leave inmutable guisettings.
So i have successfully updated to febrary update, and i noticed that with aditional option of “LFO” channels, now if i leave it inmutable is always drops:
22:24:12.874 T:1926044160 FATAL: unable to load settings
Please help me to force raspberry always detect sound card without guisettings, or any other option…
p.s. sorry for my bad english
