Hello,

I have a new external (USB) "Creative SoundBlaster Live 24-bit" but I only get 1 Channel to work. This means Alsamixer only shows 1 channel for output (PCM). Kmix show 1 channel for input and one for output.
I'm using kernel 2.6.18 and I want to use the built-in alsa for this. So I have built snd-usb-audio as a module and entered the following lines into /etc/modules.d/alsa before doing a "modules-update" and rebooting:
Code:
alias snd-card-1 snd-usb-audio
alias sound-slot-1 snd-card-1

options snd-usb-audio index=1

alias sound-service-1-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-1-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-1-12 snd-pcm-oss

options snd cards_limit=2


After having searched the internet for hours (I have seen [url]http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Install_Creative_Sound_Blaster_Live_24-bit_external_(usb)[/url] and applied it as far as possible since I wanted my internal sound card to still work as usual). speaker-test gives me this
Code:
# speaker-test -Dplug:surround51 -c6

speaker-test 1.0.14
Playback device is plug:surround51
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 6 channels
Using 16 octaves of pink noise
ALSA lib pcm_params.c:2152:(snd_pcm_hw_refine_slave) Slave PCM not usable
Broken configuration for playback: no configurations available: Argument invalide
Setting of hwparams failed: Argument invalide


I don't know what to do any more. can you please help me? thanks in advance
