I am using a Winfast Leadtek TV 2000 XP card and TVTime 1.0.2 to watch analog TV. The TV card's sound output is hooked up to the CD-in of my mainboard (MSI Intel X58 Platinum).
Just recently I managed to get ALSA to correctly recognize the CD-in (see How do I enable CD-in?).
Now I would like TVTime to adjust the ALSA CD slider when turning the volume up and down in TVTime. However, TVTime refuses to do this and I always have to use
alsamixer to control the volume.
I have tried different settings for the
MixerDevice setting in the
tvtime.xml configuration file as suggested e.g. in https://askubuntu.com/a/217462/9598. When using this value, this is the output when running TVTime:
Running tvtime 1.0.2. Reading configuration from /etc/tvtime/tvtime.xml Reading configuration from /home/chrisipk/.tvtime/tvtime.xml ALSA lib control.c:953:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL mixer: attach error: No such file or directory mixer: Can't open mixer , mixer volume and mute unavailable.
This is what I currently have:
<option name="MixerDevice" value="default/cd"/>
This is the output when running TVTime:
Running tvtime 1.0.2. Reading configuration from /etc/tvtime/tvtime.xml Reading configuration from /home/chris/.tvtime/tvtime.xml mixer: find error: Success mixer: Can't open mixer default, mixer volume and mute unavailable. mixer: Can't open device default/cd, mixer volume and mute unavailable.
The current setting seems to be somewhat right as the output no longer complains about missing a file or directory and contains "find error: Success".
What do I need to do so that TVTime can adjust my CD-in volume?
