HDMI AUDIO PROBLEM
« on: December 29, 2012, 08:44:42 pm »
I have a M3N78-VM.  I used apt-get update and apt-get upgrade today and now I dont have audio (HDMI).  The command: aplay -D plughw:0,3 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav plays sound through the speakers, but no sound in xine and no sound in myth.  What are the correct steps to get it working? I already went through the avwizard again selecting hdmi audio and restarted various times.  This is on the CORE/Hybrid.

Thanks.

I would expect the m3n78-VM to not want a device assignment (3 in your case).

add "AlternateSC = 1" to /etc/pluto.conf without quotes. rm /etc/asound.conf /etc/X11/xorg.con* and reboot. This will take you to avwiz.

Though, again, would ONLY expect it to work with "AlternateSC = 0" (it will not exist currently in pluto.conf, which is equal to 0).
I never quit... I just ping out.

First of all thanks for the reply and for all the work you have done with hdmi audio in linuxmce. 

I'm a little confused about what you said:
     You would "expect the m3n78-vm to not want a device assignment"?
and:
     then "would ONLY expect it to work with 'AlternateSC = 0'...

not sure what you meant by that; anyway I edited /etc/pluto.conf and delete both /etc/asound.conf and /etc/X11/xorg.con*, then rebooted. This seems to have configured xine correctly (I have sound when using xine), but myth (tv) still has no sound.

aplay -D plughw:0,3 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav plays sound
-D = device
plughw = output to hardware (and resample based on DAC)
0,3 = Card 0, Device 3

I would expect that board to only work as hw:0

As your sound is now working, if you cat /etc/asound.conf I expect you will see that is what is being output to.

In myth, you will need to go to the frontend (not backend) setup. Go to General... after a couple of menus you will see Audio. Move it from "Default" to the hw:0,3 and change it to hw:0.

For some reason backspace in myth is interpreted as a "go back one menu"... so use delete. I am working on fixing this default problem in myth.
