NO sound on MD used to work out of the box.
« on: December 10, 2012, 09:01:58 pm »
Hello guys,

install from reasonably recent snapshot, I have no sound on my MD.

The soundcards were detected on AV wizard but upon selecting Asus Xonar D2 , optical output , I have no sound. Used to work out of the box.

Please look at the screen shots of alsamixer from MD. what else am I suppose to do?

any help, greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I would expect this to work ootb.

Your cards native HDMI is another issue. I am in chat now, and while you asked for help I cannot raise a reply from you.
I never quit... I just ping out.

I don't understand how this ever worked but doesn't now...

I need to change how I am dealing with these device numbers. All sorts of chipsets use their own designation for device types. Please replace /usr/pluto/bin/SetupAudioVideo.sh with the following:

It is still not working.  This stopped working sometime over the last 6 month.  It was working on an install I did in May/June, that I had not updated till last week, After the update it stopped working.  The other 3 MD's did not have any audio problems.

Can I see tail -4 /etc/pluto/xine.conf

The thing is, it is setup correctly outside of one oddity.

Please rm /etc/asound.conf   edit /etc/pluto/xine.conf (go all the way to the end of the very long config file) and delete everything below the line:
#vcd.title_format:%F - %I %N%L%S, disk %c of %C - %v %A

leaving a space... then run /usr/pluto/bin/SetupAudioVideo.sh
It will spit back a few things, including FATAL: Module such-n-such in use. You could paste that output as well...

I am expecting the configuration, the way you have it, to be creating a slightly different asound, and we will see about the /xine.conf

If you could drop into IRC this would probably go faster.
