• \[Workaround?\] Volume issues and Plantronics Gamecom 780


    Hello!

    Recently I have been having issues with adjusting the volume for my Plantronics Gamecom 780 since it’s too quiet. In other distributions I have tried out, I never had this issue, however the kernel version on the other distributions were less than 3.14.

    Here is my current system information if this helps

    What I have tried so far:

    1. Open up the alsamixer to adjust the volume; came to a dead end since playback is apparently not detected. All PCM capture sources are blank as shown below.

    2. Installing Pulseaudio and adjusting the maximum volume with pavucontrol, but the sound quality decreases greatly when I do this and it’s still not as loud in comparison to the previous distributions.

    3. Running the HDA Analyzer python script; First I got an error message where I had to change the python references in the script to python2 in reference to [this[/url:nb04yuk4] and then I got this error message.

  • Volume issue was solved by downgrading the kernel to 3.13.8-1. Weird how this happens in newer kernels.
