The former is also STAC9205/04/ since it is the only one with analog loopback and two ADCs
I have question, I talked with the reporter of 354981, and I don't know why but his amixer
gives very strange results:
[root at itse68482 ~]# cat amixer-contents-kernel-18.104.22.168-36
numid=0,iface=MIXER,name='Master Playback Switch'
numid=0,iface=MIXER,name='Master Playback Volume'
How can that be?
According to his lspci, he doesn't have a second sound card.
Besides that it seems that VolumeKnob is physically broken on STAC9205s,
Can anybody here with STAC9205/STAC9204/STAC9254/STAC9255 test it?
And last question, about STAC9254/STAC9255
There is no datasheet for that chip on the web, is this just STAC9205 + modem?
