Re: Ultralite AVB

Follow-up AVB Ultralite ESS with Drumfix's ua101.c module: It's been two days running this device and trying to isolate what's causing the issues. After exploring various tweak combinations I can summarize as follows: 1. Any kernel 5.8.X with default options + Drumfix's module: a few seconds of soun...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Since they started to build USB interfaces RME completely ignores Linux. So buying any of their newer interfaces is a complete waste of money. TotalMix doesn't work at all. Only USB class compliant work. @tvaz Having a computer where the problems shows up very quickly is actually a good thing for d...

Re: Ultralite AVB

1. Something closely related to USB communication in some hardware that makes the Ultralite totally unusable, as you get artifacts and then silence in a few seconds of operation. This happened to my Lenovo X1 Carbon. For this situation, my solution was disabling EHCI and compiling xHCI as module in...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Some update: The sound indeed stops after a few hours (regular channel hopping issue..) Still much better than when I have a kernel with EHCI enable, which lasts no more than a few seconds. root2 , along with disabling EHCI, I compiled the kernel with xHCI HCD (USB 3.0) as a module, not as built-in....

More testing results, this time with some good news: MOTU Ultralite AVB ESS, kernel 5.8.5 with Drumfix ua101.c patch. Debian Buster. After having sound stopping/distorting with a Thinkpad X1 Carbon 4th gen, I tried with two other laptops: Lenovo X220: works! Tested for about 1h without issues. Asus ...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Hi mxxxl ! The new one with ESS chips and FW 1.3.5+637. The driver works like a dream on my T430 Laptop with kernel 5.8.5 whereas on an Lenovo Thinkcentre with kernel 5.7.0 I still get one channel hop after approx. 12 hours. This is very encouraging!! I have the very same model/firmware and can't ge...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Still on Ultralite AVB ESS using the recent ua101.c from Drumfix: I'm having different results when testing the same kernel in different computers. For instance, in a Thinkpad X1 carbon it doesn't last 10 seconds of proper sound before getting artifacts and stop. In a regular desktop machine I can k...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Hi bluebell , I can confirm that I get the same output as root2 for my Ultralite AVB ESS. The only difference is the serial number and the bus device: -Bus 001 Device 004: ID 07fd:0005 Mark of the Unicorn UltraLite AVB +Bus 001 Device 005: ID 07fd:0005 Mark of the Unicorn UltraLite AVB zeigerpuppy ,...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Hi, thanks Drumfix and other folks who are putting efforts on this. I've just tried the ua101.c on a brand new Ultralite AVB with the ESS chip. Sadly it doesn't work as it should :-( I used the recent ua101.c file shared here in the forum against kernel 5.8.10. EDIT: same for kernel 5.8.11. MOTU fir...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 2nd Gen mixer driver

Hi, I've just came to this thread after a few days trying to put a 18i20 2nd Gen to work in my Debian system. First, a huge thanks to geoffrey and others involved for their amazing work. My device is working as it should, finally. I didn't try it enough, but I couldn't wait further to come here to s...
