I created a fresh install of debian stretch amd64. In that, I created
a qemu/kvm guess install of win8. It only accepted hda as a valid
sound card. All others show us without drivers. So, I am limited to
only HDA as -soundhw. Further HDA sounds so broken if I try to test
with any sound file or youtube video. It is grainy/distorted and
Google searches mentions something about MSI and those approaches are
simply not accepted by win8. So, I could not use them. I am wondering
if there is something fundamentally wrong with windows guests or is
there a setting that I am missing?
More info needed:
- HW (cpu, graphics, soundcard)
- BIOS (cpu power-states)
- Host setup (power states,audio setup)
- VM config.
Most important: where have you looked trying to solve this?
PS: I run Xen, not qemu, but issues are same. I have max c-state 2 on
xeon E5-2620, HDMI graphics passed thru as PCI, with good HDMI-audio in
windows 8. Needed to drop spice because load on host got too high,
