RE: Anyone success in ALSA driver for Delta 44?

There are some mixer programs, they do not allow a change of the
sampling speed but they show what speed the Delta44 is running at.
Are those programs showing 48000 or 96000?
One under X and the other was probably aumix. I think the X program
allowed a change to 96000 but when checked with another program
the speed was still 48000.

No, go on with the current version. When you have the Delta44 running
at 96kHz you will find that Linrad causes a lot of overrun errors
so the system becomes useless. Once you report this I will upload
00-54 immediately. If it takes some time I will wait. John, NI1B,
has a problem with all versions after 00-48, his system crashes
when he clicks on a signal on later versions. I would like to 
have this corrected in 00-54 but there is not really any problem
to make an extra version if you need it.

The antennspecialisten.se and ham.te.hik.se computer is under
reconfiguration. The ham.te.hik server will be closed. Several things 
will change, the SM5BSZ home page will be moved to some new place
among other things. I do not know hat went wrong and why, but
I hope it is soon corrected.
