z8700 Kangaroo sound not working

Postby hanasaki » 2016-09-26 02:09

Trying to get it to work over HDMI. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Tried custom kernel since the stock 4.6 did not work from jessie, jessie-backports or stretch (config attached)

Everything I can find at present says there is no support in the Linux kernel for the Kangaroo hardware. It was designed for window$. If there is enough demand, and someone to write the drivers, then, maybe ..... some day....

Looks like newer kernels might support it. No longer a worry for me... The unit died after ~10 months and the new N4100, N4200, N3450 systems are alot more powerful at about the same price and well supported.
