Isn't that the default value? Anyway, I tried it and the sound is still
not good. (Only one 'native_blitbuffer: select error occured')
It's a little weird. The default is
Sound card with one output channel -> maxautovchans=1
Sound card with multiple output channels -> maxautovchans=0
Can you also experiment with soft mixing, (I'm forgotting what
we actually call it), y'know auto-rate/format conversion.
I guess you mean hw.snd.report_soft_formats ? I tried 0 and 1, for both
soundcards but the problems persists.
Anyway I decided to give up for now, the trick with reboot/demo works
for me. (playing in -current is not an option; sound is OK but framerate
too low probably because I can't use the nvidia AGP driver there).
Thanks for the help, at least I learned some new things about pcm!
