Topic: HDSPe Raydat
I'm wondering if anyone has had any success with the Raydat card in Linux. I tested the card in windows latest drivers and updated to the latest firmware and everything worked fine so the hardware is functional. I've seen some posts on the net where people say they have this working in linux so I'm interested in how they achieved this, in particular which alsa version and firmware version is required.
I've built and installed the hdspm module ALSA 1.0.22 from the source code. The module loads and I can send audio to the card but the audio is choppy. If I play a continuous sine wave, I get a gated sine wave like it is being turned on/off every half a second or so. Also the output channels are not in the right places, for example the Alsa output channels 1-8 don't map directly to the ADAT channels 1-8
Changing the buffer size or samplerate doesn't solve the problem.
here are the results of my cat /proc/asound/card0/hdspm...
RME HDSPM MADI (Card #1) Rev.d3 Status2first3bits: 0
IRQ: 10 Registers bus: 0xfaef0000 VM: 0xffffc20000c20000

Inputs MADI=NoLock, WordClock=NoLock
AutoSync: Reference= Word Clock, Freq=0 (MADI = 0, Word = 0)
Input: Optical, Mode=56 channels
Should the Raydat be giving 56 Channels? I thought this was specific to the HDSPe MADI.
I checked some posts on here by florian with regards to his changes to the alsa hdspm module code. I couldn't get his code to build but I looked through it and noted he changed a clock rate setting from 105 MHz to 100 MHz in some raydat specific code so I added that change to my driver and my external ADAT box can lock the sync on 48kHz now.
I'm hoping I can get 32 ins/out via adat at a fixed rate of 48kHz working.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
