NAME

iecset - Set or dump IEC958 status bits

 

SYNOPSIS

iecset [options] [cmd arg...]

 

DESCRIPTION

iecset is a small utility to set or dump the IEC958 (or so-called "S/PDIF") status bits of the specified sound card via ALSA control API.

When iecset is started without arguments except for options, it will show the current IEC958 status in a human-readable form. When the commands are given in the arguments, they are parsed and the IEC958 status bits are updated. The resultant status is shown as well.

The commands consist of the command directive and the argument. As the boolean argument, yes, no, true, false, or a digit number is allowed.

 

EXAMPLES

iecset -Dhw:1
Displays the current IEC958 status bits on the second card. This is equivalent with -c 1.
iecset -x
Displays the current IEC958 status bits in a style of the arguments for the PCM stream. The output string can be passed to the iec958 (or spdif) PCM type as the optional argument.
iecset pro off audio off
Sets the current status to the consumer-mode and turns on the non-audio bit. The modified status will be shown, too.

 

OPTIONS

-D device
Specifies the device name of the control to open
-c card
Specifies the card index to open. Equivalent with -Dhw:x.
-x
Dumps the status in the form of AESx bytes.
-i
Reads the command sequences from stdin. Each line has single command.
