Re: USB headset ... ?



Quoting "Marc G. Fournier" <scrappy_(_at_)_hub_(_dot_)_org> (from Wed, 17 May 2006 22:52:23 -0300 (ADT)):


has anyone ever used something like this under FreeBSD?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00005A9AU/104-0319067-3554367?n=172282

like, are there drivers needed, or ... ?

Skype has it listed, and I like the fact that I'm not going to end up
tying up my sound card ...

You should be aware that our USB stack doesn't allow full duplex communication by default ATM. For uhci chipsets you can enable it by changing the source and it should work.


If this Plantronics headset is just an ordinary USB audio device, it should work (FreeBSD 6.1 or -current is a good choice then).

In case you want to play music at the same time you are using a headset, you can activate the virtual channels for the audio device with a sysctl. This way the sound system allows to open /dev/dsp multiple times and mixes everything together and you don't need to have more than one soundcard.

Bye,
Alexander.
