okay, I got one problem solved
I updated Alsa on the MD to 1.0.21...I did a little digging around the net and arrived here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1046137They provide a script, that automatically downloads, compiles and updates the drivers, if I understood it right.
(you have to be registered to download the script)
So now I checked with alsamixer and suddenly I got all the controls I needed...sound optical is working nicley now.
I haven't tried hdmi, but right now I don't care that much for it.
Right now I have only two issues remaining here: getting the sound from the core
and getting MythTV to playback TV on the MD. MythTV-stup still claims that there non-exisiting paths for storage, but they are all there.
Interstingly, like I mentioned earlier, TV is working on the core.
My system was working and i lost sound all of a sudden. My soundcard is detected in alsamixer. I want to try updating alsa there are few problems.
I found similar script but it has tobe in /home folder. for some reason I can not copy it in /home
if you can give me steps to follow with commands,, i would appreciate.
