I have an m-audio fw1814 working currently with ffado-mixer. The computer is sending audio via virewire and it is playing out of 2 stereo monitors hooked up to the device! I am not a developer and I do not know what I did to make it work, aside from installing the packages and disabling pulseaudio auto start.
Currently pulse is not started, I can only control volume from inside ffado mixer… if someone would like to have a remote session with me and analyse my configuration I would be more than happy… lets get this device officially supported!
contact me at brad87(at)gmail.com if you would like to talk more about this… I have been trying to get in touch with members of the project but its harder than i thought as the irc channel is all but empty.
