Thanks, that was very helpful. I am looking at it. I did find an issue
looking at the pointer callback itself straight away.


static snd_pcm_uframes_t saa7231_capture_pointer(struct snd_pcm_substream *pcm)
{
	struct saa7231_audio *audio	= snd_pcm_substream_chip(pcm);
	struct saa7231_dev *saa7231	= audio->saa7231;
	struct snd_pcm_runtime *rt	= pcm->runtime;

	dprintk(SAA7231_DEBUG, 1, "DEBUG:()");
	return bytes_to_frames(rt, audio->index * audio->pages * PAGE_SIZE);
}

audio->pages is the whole number of pages for all the 8 buffers; Fixed
that issue, run it again, this time arecord stated just a single
overrun

static snd_pcm_uframes_t saa7231_capture_pointer(struct snd_pcm_substream *pcm)
{
	struct saa7231_audio *audio	= snd_pcm_substream_chip(pcm);
	struct saa7231_dev *saa7231	= audio->saa7231;
	struct snd_pcm_runtime *rt	= pcm->runtime;
	u32 frames;

	frames = bytes_to_frames(rt, audio->index * (audio->pages /
XS2D_BUFFERS) * PAGE_SIZE);
	dprintk(SAA7231_DEBUG, 1, "DEBUG:() Index:%d with frames:%d, total %d
pages", audio->index, frames, audio->pages);
	return frames;
}

overrun!!! (at least 0.006 ms long)
^CAborted by signal Interrupt...

The logs do look thus now: http://pastebin.ca/2021872


Now, I do get a .wav file The contents of which seems to be junk ??

http://202.88.242.108:8000/test/test.wav

Tried to play it back with alsaplayer and mplyer with no results,
mplayer shows no issues though.. Maybe PCM corruptions ? But at least
some noises it should make  ?


Thanks,
Manu
