I can answer some of your questions.. and perhaps give you a clearer picture of what you need.
Some of your questions will have to be answered by Javier though.
I hope he doesn't mind me taking the easy ones!
The window you got saying "Needs HDAudio.device version 6.22 or better"
is NOT a failure message. It is a reminder that anyone testing this mixer should have the latest HDAudio device first.
Since this is a beta release, it's just an attempt to knock down one possible point of confusion.
In fact his Mixer has not checked the HDaudio version, and it works fine after giving this message. I assume this message will be removed for the release version of Mixer.
Now on to a few little details if I may:
There is no HDAudio.device. the file he meant to specify is devs:ahi/HDAudio.audio.
To see if you have the correct, updated version, you can open a shell and enter
version file devs:AHI/HDAudio.audio
If things go well you'll get a reply something like
That should help with your questions about the nag requester and whether or not you have the updated version.
Just to offer a bit more detail:
This Mixer will _probably_ work with earlier versions of the HDAudio driver, for main volume only.
But the recording gain and level will not do a thing unless you have the latest driver. This entire
audio pathway was moved to a separate internal channel for 6.22.
If you're really up for boring details you can read about why I moved it in this recent
Now, about Mixer specific installation stuff, I'll defer to Javier. But I hope the above has helped with
at least some of the questions you brought.
If you prefer a more difficult method,
You can cut and paste these next few lines into a file, and then save it and execute it.
You'll get a simple statement telling you if your driver is new enough for this mixer...
Version Devs:AHI/HDAudio.audio VERSION 6 REVISION 22
echo "You need to update to the new HDAudio driver"
echo "Your HDAudio driver is OK for the Mixer release"
Yes, I know it's easier to just type the version line and see for yourself..
but I like to play in the shell occasionally.
