Hello to all,

I suffered a meltdown of my core just before the weekend and did rebuild using the net install script (Update 23579). Had a bit of trouble with nvidia-install.sh but that was resolved by using the file from changeset 23588.

Now when rebuilding my MD based on Foxconn nT330i (ion) I can't get sound over hdmi going. Last time (about a month) ago it was nothing more then choosing the right option in the AVWizard (HDMI) and unmuting alsa channels. Now I can get it to work. Even went into destop and put all the sound preferences on HDMI and unmuted the lot. Before I start tearing down my new build, can anybody give some hints to see if I have forgotten something?

What I did is written down in http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Foxconn_nT330i

Got a bit further with the help of Merkur2k. Used the wrong nvidia-install.sh script and so my version of Nvidia was stuck on 173. Now with the new script I am.... still stuck on 173:

My system is ION based but according to the script (afaiks) because I tried a few lines on the commandline does not contain a NVidia card

so finally I installed 195 manually, will let u know what the result is.

It turned out that after installation of nvidia 195 there was another issue: mythtv was gone.

I decided to rebuild the md, but before starting up the md for the first time to make adjustments according to the wiki and replacing the nvidia-install.sh script in /usr/pluto/bin with the one offered by Merkur2k in #linuxmce:

http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/browser/branches/LinuxMCE-0810/src/BootScripts/nvidia-install.sh?format=raw

Booted the MD and...... tatatata its in working order again.

Basically as far as I can see now the MD was stuck on nvidia 173 and that has no support for HDMI audio so hence no sound.

Sorry Han,

I dont understand what was the fix? I have an Zotac Ion MD and my HDMI sound isnt working...yet... I havent had much time to look into it.
Did the custom nvidia install script do the job? Can you pls explain in more detail how you got it working?

Thnx
Karel

it's not a full install script, but a script that decides what version is best for your setup

the original would see that 260 is not available and NOT install 195 instead.

With this "new" nivida-install.sh it will correctly default to the 195 driver
