USB audio modules from Xtreamer after few modifications are working also on PlayOn!HD.

In order to use USB soundcard you need following items:
  • PlayOn!X rev 5.1 firmware
  • Optware 0.5

Please take a note, it has been confirmed only with USB adapters based on snd-usb-audio.ko module. Personally I'm using Virtual 5.1-Surround USB 2.0 External Sound Card bought on DealExtreme for less than 2 euro (including shipping):


    1) Plug-in soundcard to USB port including speakers/headphones

    2) Enter Telnet and execute following script:
    You should see following messages:
    Creating /dev/dsp..
    Creating /dev/mixer..
    Adding audio modules..
    nrpacks are set to 1

    3) Now you can use madplay to play audio files from Telnet:
