Hope someone can help or point me in the right direction:
MD - SPECS
ASUS Mobo 3.2
4 Gb RAM
320 Gb HDD
Yukon GB eth0
SBLive 5.1 Card
Onboard Audio - ICH5 - Disabled
Digital Coax connected to Receiver
I get no sound with this card or the on-board. I went with this card due to the fact that it was one of those identified as "working out of the box", based on some of the pleas for help that is not the case.
Here is what I've done:
Alsamixer config -
I set all of the IE958 settings to un-mute as well as AC97 and saved it (boy this took a while to get through) but I did.
In KDE loaded a DVD in drive, it autostarted with the XINE player - NO Sound
Launched KMIX - used a myriad of settings (bad thing about this utility, what is on and what is off, no way to really tell) (light reds, dark reds, greens, yellows). You would think that GREEN (being a standard for on/go/proceed) would indicate that an option is on. Go figure.
Ok, so I am a little frustrated and am willing to buy "whatever works with this system out of the box", I just want to finally see it work.
You guys have helped me struggle through the slow speed and really pointed me in the right direction, hopefully you can do the same here.
THANKS IN ADVANCE - HAPPY NEW YEAR
