the device has one cable, attached to it via a mini-usb type connector. That cable splits into
an S-Video 'din' type socket
and also three coloured sockets for Video(yellow) & Audio left (white), right (red) (Composite)
I have been testing with S-Video and component inputs both separately connected and also with both sets connected.
The device itself plugs into a standard USB port.
It has no other connection ..... and thus no separate analogue audio connection.
I must get audio and video from the USB connection.
As my previous post indicates, the audio is present, and is recordable by gnome-sound-recorder.
The puzzle seems to be that some apps can see this audio, while others cannot.
I don't know if you use KDE ..... but if you do could you try using KMPlayer with the device?
It does give very detailed and well formatted output in the video window, when the 'Console' icon is ticked. This is what it tells me .....
Audio: no sound
So, to recap, I am puzzled that I can record from the audio channel, but neither TVTime not KMPlayer will lock to this audio and VLC will only 'see' it if the audio channel's hardware location is specified.
KMPlayer has the facility in the GUI to specify the hardware location of the audio channel/stream, but nothing I have tried so far has resulted in audio being present on the output.
I suppose the solution will be obvious when it is discovered .... but I am not seeing it yet ....
