I'm actually fairly new to 'nix (with a GUI anyway), so forgive me if I ask daft questions.
I am in the process of setting up an HTPC:
- Linux Mint 5 Elyssa (Ubuntu 8.04)
- Motherboard bundle:
- FoxxConn M7VMX (with 5.1 channel HD Audio, Realtek® ALC662 onboard)
- Intel Dual Core E2200
- 2GB DDR2
- XFX GeForce 7200GS
- Philips 32PFL5522D 32" HDTV
- via DVI>HDMI convertor
What I can't see is how to persuade Linux Mint to push the audio through the HDMI cable, and I'm beginning to believe that it's not actually possible.
Any help/advice would be massively appreciated.
