new sound card: FYI

Postby Circulus_Equatorus on Mon Feb 22, 2010 12:24 am

I have Mint 8 on my USB thumb drive. I built the computer with a Gigabyte MainBoard and it has a Realtek sound chip on-board. It gets 5.1/7.1 analog/digital in Windows but in MINT 8 it only gets stereo analog duplex. However I bought a PCI sound card from AuzenTech. The X-Plosion Cinema 7.1
When I booted into my MINT 8 it started working without so much as a "howdy-do". The sound card has at least ten choices from Analog or Digital stereo duplex to 5.1/7.1 Analog and also Digital SPDIF I/O.
Thank You Linux!
So who can tell me which MINT 8 program will play my 5.1 Concert DVD's?
Is there a way to play Blu-ray? It has a Blu-ray drive.

Glad your new sound card works. On blue ray it's not so good however, see
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
