Task Type Bugs
Category Music playback
Status Closed
Assigned To No-one
Operating System iAudio X5
Severity Medium
Priority Normal
Reported Version
Due in Version Undecided
Due Date Undecided
Percent Complete 100%
Votes 0
Private No


Device: iAudio X5
Rockbox-Version: Newest CVS-Build
Affected setting: Sound Settings -> Balance = +15

When i set this value, the balancing changes correctly.
But when i reboot rockbox or start a new playlist, both channels are playing the music at 100%. The value in the Sound Settings -> Balance is still displayed correctly. In this case ajusting the balance or ajusting the volume +- 1 step (!) corrects the balancing.

My assumption: The balancing has to be set when the music playback initalizes.
This task depends upon

Experienced the same thing, although I noticed it in connection with track skipping and crossfading.
With Balance set to <> 0%, when I skip a track the balance remains ok if it successfully crossfades. But if the buffer or whatever isn't ready and it doesn't crossfade on skipping, the balance seems to be reset to 0% (although still correctly displayed in the settings). A volume change brings back the correct balance.

I don't have this issue on my H300 with the latest SVN. Can someone try an SVN build with their X5 and say if the issue is still present?

Balance seems to be set correctly all the time now (when skipping tracks or after rebooting) on my X5 with a recent SVN build.
