Re: Change audio device PID and VID name?

Ok I tried that and it didn't work for some reason. However I discovered that it's the ATTRS{product}== that needs to be renamed, not the ATTR{id}==. So rather than renaming my HDMI ports, let's try with a USB DAC instead. I discovered how to pull up all the detailed info on this USB DAC by running ...

Re: Change audio device PID and VID name?

Do you happen to know of any Linux guru's that might know what to do? I found this link but it's over my head:

https://www.alsa-project.org/wiki/Chang ... _with_udev

If you understand what he's saying better than me, and can decode it into steps that achieve how to do it, please let me know.

Re: Change audio device PID and VID name?

I'm referring to what is given by the hardware itself. The firmware in the hardware provides the PID and VID information to ALSA. Here's what comes up when I list my audio devices" **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Audio [Intel HDMI/DP LPE Audio], device 0: HdmiLpeAudio [Intel...

Change audio device PID and VID name?

Hello,

Is it possible to edit my audio device PID and VID to give it a custom name? My goal is to make a custom name for my audio device so when I use Roon my audio device is listed as the custom name I assign it rather than the standard PID and VID name of the device.

Thanks in advance!

Re: upsampling options

Great to hear! Please let me know how to set it up. I'm not having any luck the other way. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. SoX is far superior upsampling anyways if we can get it going. It's more CPU demanding, but theres different quality levels to choose depending on available CPU power.

Re: upsampling options

Thanks I'll give it another shot. However I did a bit more digging and the Shairport-sync developer added the ability to integrate SoX upsampling with shairport without Pulseaudio. More info here: https://github.com/mikebrady/shairport-sync/blob/master/LIBSOXR.md I'm not sure exactly how to configur...

Re: upsampling options

I tried the trick you shared but could not get it to work. I used Nano to do it. I don't know anything about Linux. Am I supposed to type "device" where it says "device"? Or does "device" represent the hardware name under soundcards in the audio config menu? Also do I n...

Re: upsampling options

Thanks for the tip. Would doing that force all source sample rates to the sample rate you set it to? Another concern is I was reading elsewhere that Alsa on its own does a very lousy job of upsampling. Where SoX and libsamplerate are designed with quality in mind. You can also set it up to only upsa...

upsampling options

Hello, Is there anyway to globally upsample audio using either SoX or libsamplerate? I'm pretty sure if there was an option for Pulseaudio output it could be one easily. Basically I would like to see the options that we have under the audio settings for MPD, work for all audio plays through the syst...
