I have a Shuttle XPC, specs are here
l and a Dell SP2208WFP Monitor. The sound on the computer is via an onboard
Realtek ALC888DD and the monitor has a usb OmniVision Tech. microphone in
addition to the usb OmniVision camera built into it. I'm running Fedora 10
with a KDE login manager, and a KDE desktop. The system is up to date as of
Here's the problem.
If I boot the computer with everything plugged in, the only thing the mixer
sees is the microphone. No other audio devices appear. Obviously, no sound
If I unplug the Dell usb cable from the monitor, then the onboard audio
system (RealTek) is recognized and works fine. I can plug the Dell monitor
usb cable in after my login completes, and I can get the camera and the
microphone back. The mixer tabs are "HDA NVidia" and "Monitor Webcam
(SP2208WFP)" at that point.
It would be nice to leave everything plugged in, and still have it all
work, but for whatever reason, the system seems to think that the
microphone built into the monitor is a priority to the exclusion of all
else. I have a work-around, unplugging the usb cable, hopefully it is just
a work-around, and not a final solution. ;)
