So i got this gt210 because it supposedly was a good card. Guess not.
vdapu : non functional
hdmi audio: non functional.
Does anyone here have this exact card and have it working with hdmi audio?
Second. When before this previous install of linuxmce over the last few days (yes days thanks to sound problems) i had NO issues with onboard sound. Heck I never have had issues with the onboard sound. So while I know this is bad to ask, is there a fucking sledgehammer i can use to get rid of alsa and all its problems for ANYTHING else so I can move on with my life. Looking at my address bar, ive got over 20 windows open of sites with supposed fixes, but nothing works. So the question is
(1) do i keep wasting my life away with alsa?
(2) do i just try and clone my slowly going bad drive and go back to my old install?
(3) but all new hardware and hope it works? (yeah not happening)
Seriously, i know this may come of bitchy, but its frustrating to think your going forward only to have all the shiny new stuff be pretty much useless and a waste of time.
Ive tried the alsa upgrade script
ive tried god knows how many tweaks to /etc/modprobe/alsa-whateverthefuckitscalled.conf. no luck.
The only thing thats worked is removing the gt210 entirely from the system and relying on the onboard video and sound (which i can get to work without the 210 around) This is not ideal. But if its what I have to deal with, fine. I would just like a definite answer on what does and doesn't work. And please dont direct me to the hdmi audio wiki page. not really much there besides anecdotal experience and not much in the way of actual troubleshooting. Assume i have crawled over this forum already as linuxmce specific tweak take priority over the general ubuntu information ive found.
who knew in 2011 sound cards would still be a pain in the ass.
