I just finished building my dream myth system:
MSI RX480 Neo2-F Socket 939 Motherboard
NVIDIA GeForce 6600 256MB DDR PCIe w/DVI/TV-OUT
Westinghouse 37" 1080p Monitor connected via DVI
AMD Athlon 64 Dual Core FX60 Socket 939 CPU
Kingwin Big Air BA-12 CPU Cooler for AMD FX60 (silent fan)
Dual 7200 400GB SATA drives in RAID1 (hardware) for speed
HD5000 HDTV PCI Card for QAM HD Digital.
Two Hauppauge HDV-1600 dual cable & ATSC Digital tuners for us-cable/us-cable digital HD.
One DVD/CD R,W,RW
4 Double bearing silent fans
500 watt silent power supply
D-Link Wireless 54MB card
RCA 5.1 Surround Sound system w/SPDIF hookup
I installed Ubuntu 6.10 and ran system update no problem. I installed the LinuxMCE software from a CD I burned off the iso downloaded via bittorrent - no problems. I then ran through the Pluto configuration wizard - no sound even though I select SPDIF as the connection. So I figured it might be a driver issue or an asound.conf issue. So I continued on and rebooted as instructed after the setup finished 30-40 mins later.
On reboot the system comes up to a blank grey screen with the mouse cursor in the middle and that's it.
1. Can anyone point me to a way to get the sound working via SPDIF?
2. What's up with the grey screen?
