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.

       -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).

       audio <bool>
              The audio mode (true) or non-audio mode (false).

       rate <int>
              The sample rate in Hz.

       emphasis <int>
              The emphasis: 0 = none, 1 = 50/15us, 2 = CCITT.

       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.
