#10899 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

Add option for ALSABufferOverride

Reported by: joe@… Owned by: JYA
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.26
Component: MythTV - Audio Output Version: 0.25.1
Severity: medium Keywords: alsa, buffer
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Hello, after talking to jya on IRC, he suggested that I add a request in Trac to allow the user to override the size of the ALSA buffer in the settings. Currently, I have to remember to start mythfrontend with -O ALSABufferOverride=113

In 99e2ebe124f579ed746bdf842f7028c837aae773/mythtv:

Attempt several retries should setting ALSA hw buffer time failed.

For some people, the call to snd_pcm_hw_params_set_buffer_time_near fails with an invalid argument error.
So attempt to loop several times until we find a value that work.

Fixes #10899
