[HELP] audio HDMI nvidia GTX 560

Postby psylockeer on Sat Apr 07, 2012 11:08 am

Hi!
Here is my system
asus motherboars with intel i5 cpu
a nvidia gtx 560 video card
LMDE installed and updated to update pack 4

I installed nvidia driver from repositories and everything went ok
Code: Select all
glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: Yes
    GL_NV_parameter_buffer_object2, GL_NV_path_rendering

$ lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GF114 [GeForce GTX 560] (rev a1)


But I couldn''t get hdmi audio to work properly
After a lot of googling I procedd as follow:

aplay -l gave this result
Code: Select all
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: VT1828S Analog [VT1828S Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 1: VT1828S Digital [VT1828S Digital]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 2: VT1828S HP [VT1828S HP]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 7: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 8: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 9: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


Then I tested the devices to found out which device was working
Code: Select all
aplay -D plughw:1,7 test.wav
Playing WAVE 'test.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 8000 Hz, Mono


Card 1 device 7 was reproducing sound so i tried to force the system to use it by editing /etc/asound.conf like this

Code: Select all
pcm.!default {
type hw
card 1
device 7
}


It worked but not on everything:
youtube is working as well as gnome mplayer but on sound options when I test the speakers nothing is heard.
I'll have to try and install vlc and xbmc but I would like to know what the problem is.
Thanks in advanced

Edit: Ok I installed XBMC and the strange thing is I can warch and hear movies and tc shows but I don't hear anything in the menu, differently from usual XBMC behaviour. Any clue?
