Audio problem on custom board

Hi all,


I'm trying to get audio working on our new custom board. Starting off testing with aplay and a 16 bit .wav.


Unfortunately it fails with:

playback write error (DMA or IRQ trouble?)

aplay: pcm_write:1939: write error: Input/output error


The board is modelled after the reference designs and uses the SGTL5000 connected via I2S from the output of AUDMUX3.


When I scope the I2S clock line (CSI0_DAT4) it does not wiggle.


Looking at the pinmux, I can confirm that those pins are configured to alt 4. (AUDMX3). When I configure them to be GPIO I can wiggle the clock line through sysfs gpio150 - gpio5_22.


This worked fine on the previous rev of the board which was a solo core board.


My device tree is attached.


I've seen a few people posting about this same error message, but they either have no solutions or are due to a different issue.


Using linux 3.10.17

I also checked that the SDMA firmware had been loaded correctly.


imx-sdma 20ec000.sdma: loaded firmware 1.1

imx-sdma 20ec000.sdma: initialized


Any suggestions?
