1004 beta 1 hdmi audio issues
« on: August 26, 2012, 12:51:56 pm »
I am not sure what happened, I was able to hear the test sounds when choosing hdmi for audio, was able to hear the first past through but not the second. I was also able to hear sarah for setting up Media Player; this is an MD. Now I have finished, I am not getting any sound for videos, dvd or audio; all channels unmutted

This is my aplay -l

root@moon43:~# aplay -l

Fix one thing, break another.

I will look into it. I have one so it shouldn't take too terribly long.
I never quit... I just ping out.

guys,

     I was working on getting AC3 audio via HDMI on LMCE 1004 today...   after much searching the last two mornings, I found this:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1608804   Something about a52 not set up causing the problem.
My board is an MSI 870A-G46 with the Realtek ALC-892 chip.   I was only getting PCM (stereo) from my Media Director into my Denon receiver via HDMI (and also thru SPDIF).   I havent tried HD audio yet... but will be firing up a movie later today.

I can do:  speaker-test -Da52:0 -c6 and all speakers check properly. Unfortunately I have to figure out how to get the Media Director to know about it.

Good luck,

Dennis

Yeah... like I said... I have an acer revo 16xx ion1 and all of my stuff looks exactly like yours... and I am fully upgraded... however it was setup under the old scheme. We have made a lot of changes trying to get all of the ion2/GTxxx series to work automatically with hdmi audio. If yours no longer does, then it is likely we broke it. I have been gone all day. Will be gone most of tomorrow. Will figure it out tomorrow afternoon or Tuesday.
I never quit... I just ping out.

at a terminal, the following command will play on all speakers:
                    speaker-test -c 8 -r 48000 -D hw:1,7    *** this works for 7.1 channels


While running AVWizard, I get a screen (#5) to select which audio controller to use... then select HDMI... but i get no sound at all during the test.


Can someone tell me what I am 'missing' (besides a few screws!!!)


Thanks,
Dennis

Okay I got sound for all my files by disabling ACS/DTS pass-through.

The first test worked in avwizard, while the second did not, maybe its my tv

Thanks all
