I haven't disappeared, just became a Kodi dev, and it's fullfil my free time.. So I just now seen Your post...
Well, I haven't got So much experience in the Entware's beautiful world, So I Can only describe my FFp experiments...
I also have a Denon sound card, but I had to forgot the alsa, because I Couldn't use the software decoder with it and the hw based play was so loud... I used the OSS drivers either.
Here are the modules which are actually loaded on my system for the card:
snd_usb_audio 62920 0
snd_hwdep 6860 1 snd_usb_audio
snd_usb_lib 15844 1 snd_usb_audio
snd_rawmidi 18816 1 snd_usb_lib
snd_seq_device 5824 1 snd_rawmidi
snd_pcm 62448 1 snd_usb_audio
snd_page_alloc 7040 1 snd_pcm
snd_timer 18436 1 snd_pcm
snd 42160 6 snd_timer,snd_pcm,snd_seq_device,snd_rawmidi,snd_hwdep,snd_usb_audio
soundcore 5052 1 snd
Load theese and create the required device nodes:
mknod /dev/mixer c 14 0
mknod /dev/dsp c 14 3
Now, see if the device is acessible. I figured out a little trick for that
. Try to cat the /dev/dsp. If it says No such device, the modules, or something is wrong. Else, if You see some other message, the card is ready.
And You are finished with the setup. Now configure the mpd config and add the output!
PS: if the mpd not works, I recommend the madplay (the package and it's dependencies are available at my repo
) package first, because it is a really cool, ligtweight mp3 player with CLI. Try to start a music, and when You Can hear it check the mpd config.
PS2: I just be notified about the PM's, when I visit the forum. So feel free to send a mail (in case, when You don't got a response) me at <my nick with small letters>[ at ]atw[ dot ]hu and link the topic.
Thanks nas-central the lot of help!
