What is the story with this 0xf0f0f0f[02] overload stuff? I've been doing the same, subbing in 0 and 2 as others have been mentioning. However, unless I'm missing something, I am using the latest code. I just upgraded to python2.4, manually removed all the 2.3 site-packages, rebuilt from scratch.

Are you talking about picking up a new usrp firmware? (I think I haven't done that in a while)

The performance impact was almost negligible. I am still having trouble with the fully updated usrp/gr-usrp code at home. tvrx_wfm_rcv.py complains bitterly about 0xf0f0f0f[02] yielding an overload it hates. Here at work, in an older version of this code, I just subbed in 0 and 2 for these numbers and everything seemed to work but this "trick" does not work
on the new stuff at home.

Guidance needed.

Even though the Delta 44 has only four inputs and four outputs (all
balanced monoaural), it reports twelve through ALSA to jack.  I can
tell this is happening since dial_tone.py and tvrx_wfm_rcv.py both
blow up with complaints about the number of sinks.  multi_tone.py
works perfectly since it loads stuff up for all gazoutas.

Has anyone done a general work around for this?

Try using plughw:0,0 instead of hw:0,0 as the pcm device (second arg
to audio.source and audio.sink.  plughw:0,0 should send something (not
sure what) to all i/os.  Not sure of the performance impact.  A bit of
measuring with oprofile will reveal all.

It sounds like a fix for the Delta-44 ALSA driver is in order too.
This assumes that the driver can tell the difference between a
Delta-44 and other boards with the same chip set.

You might want to post this question to the JACK or ALSA mailing lists.
