I have a Thinkpad z60m with a HDA snd card, using Ariff's drivers from 25th Feb
( THANKS for the drivers, Ariff!!:
$ cat /dev/sndstat

I'm using Skype 1.2 from ports , skype-126.96.36.199_3 . I've been using it for as
long as I've been using FreeBSD as desktop/laptop ( a year), both on a Toshiba
A2 and this Thinkpad, never a problem.
since I moved to ariff's low latency drivers, my colleagues tell me they can
hear quite a bit of echo / feedback - I've confirmed today this only happens
when both someone else and I speak at the same time. I cannot hear any kind of
this didn't use to happen with the hdac.ko driver that was around before
The settings I'm using are :
- all the default sysctl settings
- $ mixer
Mixer vol is currently set to 61:61
Mixer pcm is currently set to 89:89
Mixer speaker is currently set to 49:49
Mixer mic is currently set to 89:89
Mixer cd is currently set to 40:40
Mixer rec is currently set to 66:66
Recording source: mic
These mixer options are the ones that allows my colleagues on a conference to
hear me ok - but they still produce some feedback when we talk over each other.
I don't think it is headset related : i have a Sennheiser tiny mic that has
only 1 ear bud (non usb), and a logitech, non usb, with big ear-mufs and mic on
the RHS - same result.
Is there anything I can do?
thanks in advance!!!
