iecset



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 com-
       mands 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 argu-
              ments 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.

       -n index
              Specifies the IEC958 control element index,  in  case  you  have
              multiple IEC958 devices and need to choose one of them.

       -x     Dumps the status in the form of AESx bytes.

       -i     Reads  the  command  sequences from stdin.  Each line has single
              command.


COMMANDS
       professional <bool>
              The professional mode (true) or consumer mode (false).


       lock <bool>
              Rate lock: locked (true), unlocked (false).  This command is for
              the professional mode only.


       sbits <int>
              Sample bits:  2 = 20bit, 4 = 24bit, 6 = undefined.  This command
              is for the professional mode only.


       wordlength <int>
              Wordlength: 0 = No, 2 = 22-18 bit, 4 = 23-19 bit, 5 = 24-20 bit,
              6 = 20-16 bit.  This command is for the professional mode only.


       category <int>
              Category:  the value is from 0 to 0x7f.  This command is for the
              consumer mode only.


       copyright <bool>
              Copyright: copyrighted (true),  non-copyrighted  (false).   This
              command is for the consumer mode only.


       original <boo>
              Original  flag:  original  (true), 1st generation (false).  This
              command is for the consumer mode only.
