Soundblaster Live! with A1200T Mediator

Hi,

I recently acquired a Mediator board for my 1200T project and after some trouble configuring the Radeon video card I managed to get it working.

Now, being time for the next challenge, I'm trying to get the sound-card working. I'm using a Sound Blaster Live!.

I've downloaded the AHI drivers (emukx10.audio) but can't seem to get it working at all. Starting AHI to get it configured I get the error message:
"(emukx10.audio) - unable to openpci.library version 1".

I really don't see what I'm doing wrong, but I can't seem to get it working at all... Any help is much welcome. Thanks in advance.

I didn't think the Soundblaster Live was supported. I was using a Soundblaster 128 and also tested an FM801 based sound card using the Elbox Drivers from the MMCD, all working fine.

Only issue I had was unless I put the Sound Card in slot 4 (from the top) I would get an error 'unable to open mixer' on booting (and of course the Soundcard didn't work.

So if you're using some special driver I didn't know existed you could try another slot

that's the thing, on the Elbox site (http://www.elbox.com/products/mediator_pci_1200_tx.html) they mention that SB live is compatible:

"Address and data parity control support
Address and data parity are supported in all Mediator slots. Parity support is necessary for using PCI cards like Sound Blaster Audigy, Sound Blaster Live! or ForteMedia FM801-based PCI cards. "

However, this TX version has been replaced by a new model that I have (LT4), and for this model I can't find any mention to SB live!

I think I'll have more luck if I manage to get a SB 128 card... shouldn't be too expensive on e-bay.

check what happens when you get to your card on the list.

Soundblaster Live! with A1200T Mediator

Tried both SB128 and F801 cards, both are recognized by PCIinfo, neither works at all with AHI +\- Mixer\Ghostmix and proper audio files (not emux10 -- for UAE). Don't know what causes the lack of function: sx, Rx, or LT4. Works ok it my Big Box Mediators.

soundblaster live series are not yet supported by mediator official drivers
plus mediator suffer irq problems like a PC if a pci card requires specific irq
for example a soundblaster live requires a free irq 5, and can't be shared

oh,before i forget.

if you get a sb128 make very sure that the "ctxxxx" number listed under "sound card model" matches the one you get otherwise it may not work.

im saying this because theres alot of versions of the sb128 out there,i checked mine before i bought it.anything other than the one tested is a risk and waste of money no matter how cheap it is.(the card will still show in the system even if its not supported)

if in dought as to what it is looking at it,simply ask the vender what model it is to be sure.

i got mine for 5 including shipping.
