Setting up an MD on a new core that I have installed at home (one of the latest snapshots)
Everything went ok-ish (once I dealt with the end of life intrepid issues)
Anyway... Setting up a new MD. AVWizard goes through OK. Get to the audio settings and need to turn the volume right up and jump over to a terminal (ctrl-alt-f2) and turn all the levels up in alsamixer. This is not a major issue - it seems to be fine I can hear the sample music at the required volume. Finish the wizard and assign the room etc, screens are generated etc All seems pretty normal.
Reboot the MD and go to watch tv, video or audio and there is no sound. So I switch to another console terminal to see if the sound card levels are wrong or have been muted and as soon as I switch consoles I can hear the sound. I switch back to the X screen and the sound stops. This consistently happens for all media types and all consoles. ie: I hear the sound that is playing when I switch to any other console screen other than F7 but when I go into that the sound stops.
