Postby Cariboo on Thu Jun 11, 2009 7:51 pm

Facts:
Gloria on HP Pavilion dv4 1320.ca
Sound Card:
a) (This is the information I got from Windows Vista Device Manager.)
"High Definition Audio Device" and "IDT Definition Audio CODEC"

b) (This is how Gloria sees the Audio Device.)
cariboo-laptop ~ # lspci -v

01:05.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RS780 Azalia controller
Subsystem: ATI Technologies Inc RS780 Azalia controller
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 19
Memory at d2410000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 3
Capabilities: [a0] Message Signalled Interrupts: Mask- 64bit+ Queue=0/0 Enable-

Problem:
Playing Music CDs (.wav files or mp3 files) with "Rhythm Box Music Playe"r or
Movie DVDs with "Movie Player (Xine)" I cant get any sound... :?:

I guess it is a missing driver, but what can I do....Any ideas :?:

You may need to edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base (make a backup 1st)
Probably need to change it to options snd-hda-intel model=

In my case it is "/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf"
I followed the instructions given at the ubunruforums...
At the end of the file I entered options snd-hda-intel model=hp but was not successful yet...Using Rhythmbox Music Player, I can watch the play bar moving and see visualization, but no sound.
Do I have to be connected to the Internet for this alsa reload procedure... :idea:

try this

Postby pdc_2 on Sat Jun 13, 2009 11:36 pm

can I ask you to try something, to see if it is any help?

If you go to Sound and Video, and select Pulseaudio volume control; click on the left most tab, Playback

If you select that with no audio stream running;

then start an application playing sound: a sound stream should register; RIGHT-CLICK on that; it should offer move streams; click to the stream you want;

do you now get sound?

Thanks, pdc 2.....It didn't work... I get the message "Connection failed: Connection terminated", before I even can open the Playback tab...See Screen shot...
