Muted SPDIF after each reboot

Post by jean67 » Sun Jan 28, 2018 4:36 pm

Hi guys,

Bellow is my config

I tried different things but can't fix this issue. My first question is how do we know which file is used when we open Alsamixer
I can't get this information, some people say asound with one path and other people with another ...
I want to understand where this setting is stored and what I should do to debug this kind of problem in the future

Same question for pulse audio, in the GUI there is a gap between the config of alsamixer and pulse audio.

Is there any log files that I should look first?
