Hi!

I recently bought a USB 5.1 Headset. Everything incl. the 5.1 stuff is working very well with the snd-usb-audio module (kernel 2.6.15-gentoo-r1). But poorly the microphone is not working as I expect it to do ;-)

I can listen to my voice very nice through the microphone. I can record stuff as well, but the sound is very poor quality, and it always stops recording after arround 1 second.

Any idea? Thank you very much in advance for your help, and have a nice weekend :-)

Here some (maybe) relevant output:
