    GPD WIN MAX ANNOUNCED

    We'll offer that service if we can receive the PCBs. We already replace PCBs in case it's defective, so I don't see a problem here :)

    Improve Volume Wheel Daemon (Bounty!)

    But would that increase the CPU usage? If it's just waiting for a value, it shouldn't keep the CPU busy, should it?

    Improve Volume Wheel Daemon (Bounty!)

    Cool :D Sounds like we're getting close to a bounty here :D Next step would be to find out why the reading takes so much CPU time - but that doesn't have to do anything with the bounty :)

    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    Please use the livechat or WhatsApp / Telegram. PM, eMail, Ticket... anything that is not live will take time at the moment, as I'm stuffed with work. Sorry about that :(

    Pyra screen

    The cable wasn't properly rolled and was damaged. :)

    Audio Driver (with bounty!)

    The firmware is for a really old kernel (2.6.x I think), so it needs to be updated to work with the latest kernel versions. And yes, it is available and I even linked to it in the first post.

    Improve Volume Wheel Daemon (Bounty!)

    It's the exact same volume wheel that the Pandora uses. So yeah, it's a poti with absolute values and an ADC. We discussed that a long time ago - and users here disliked an encoder but wanted to have a classic volume wheel. So that you can turn the volume fully down without looking. Also...

    Audio Driver (with bounty!)

    That's why we use an older one. However, some fixes that improves things (including audio driver support) have not been implemented in the one we use, so all those improvements would need to be backported.

    Audio Driver (with bounty!)

    Yes, each kernel updste caused various issues which need to be solved before we can switch to them. aTc is usally trying out the kernels, so I'm not sure what the issue is with this one. Could be non-bootable, 3D not working anymore, etc.

    I'm still alive, in case anyone cares ;)

    I'm also the one cooking here:)

    Improve Volume Wheel Daemon (Bounty!)

    I think it's not supported by the hardware. Hm. it might be possible that the system informs the daemon that music is playing, so no polling needed. Not sure. Usually, when no audio is playing, the output is being disabled (power saving). That should be known to the system. I think it's...

    Improve Volume Wheel Daemon (Bounty!)

    Good start :) Ah, another thing that came to my mind: Maybe disable polling completely while audio is not playing anything is also an idea. No need to change the volume while nothing plays. 1619974603 PulseAudio has full audio emulation, most software fully works with that. And it has the way...

    Improve Volume Wheel Daemon (Bounty!)

    This is a small bounty - but it also shouldn't be too much work. Basically, I'd like to improve the volume wheel daemon aTc wrote so that it uses less power and gives some more improvements. At the moment, it regularly polls the status of the volume wheel and changes the ALSA hardware volume...

    Audio Driver (with bounty!)

    The Pyra has some not-so-easy things that need fixing - and I'd like to offer bounties for those! The audio driver is part of that. What's the issue with audio on the Pyra? At the moment, we're using a very basic audio driver, which causes quite a few problems. * I provides ONE audio device...
