Can you give me the output of
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/X11/xorg.con* | grep Driver
and if this page bumps, I edited my last post so do that as well.

I would also try and use 6stack-dig as the model with the previous steps... and if not that, try auto.

Finally I got it to WORK!!!!!!!!

in the end it was a combination of things you and someoneelse posted./....... someone posted to disable the onboard audio (seems counter intutitive) but after that it worked in the AVWizzard and I was able to complete LinuxMCE.....  now I have to copy my media back.....

e warned I may need more help, I ave a MD that I want to setup with onboard Nvidia and I havent been able to get the onboard audio over digital (SPDIF)...

Thanks again for helping me L3mce (I owe you several beers if we meet in person)!!

Glad you are up and running...

Can you tell me what line you ended up with in alsa-base.conf and if you installed alsa-modules-xxx?

Ok Im narrowing this down, I have isolated my sound issue to I think the fact that root can use audio but my user cant  when I login as my user to KDE (startx) I dont have any audio but when I loginto KDE as root (using sudo su) i have audio.  This is starting to look like a permissions issue to me.  does anyone know what user is used to run LMCE and the AVWizard?  Is it the user I setup whenI installed Kubuntu?

Again if anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Thank you,

Bret

Add your username to the 'audio' group in the file /etc/groups and your user will have access to all the same audio functions and capabilities as root does.

HTH.
