Apple Video Player 1.7.3 OS 9.1 Problem
« on: July 20, 2020, 07:48:26 PM »
Hey everyone, hopefully this is the right forum. I posted on a different site, but I haven't gotten any responses.

I just set up my Power Mac 5500 with the TV tuner card up in my garage. When I launch the Apple Video Player app (1.7.3), I have no sound. I have to close the app, then go to the Sound Control Panel, and select CD-TV-Video for sound input, then everything works correctly. If I quit the tuner app and restart it, there's no sound, and I have to do it all over again. I don't remember having to do this back in the day. Is there a way to keep CD-TV-Video as the input source, even after restarting?

Thanks,

Paul

I don't have a direct answer, but do you have the system extension installed?  The one with the grey diamond with the TV with the apple in it?

[edit] as ovalking pointed out, Video Startup extension 1.7.3.

Is this your clue?
What has changed?

AVP 1.7.3 requires Video Startup extension 1.7.3.
Your OS and Sound CP versions would also be useful to anyone trying to recreate your issue.
I don't have a 5500 or a TV Tuner to test I'm afraid.

sound controlpanel always remembers settings - unless a device isnt there after boot. maybe you forgot to add some kind of driver for the card so that it now is only available when a programs starts using it?
