Ubuntu :: Digital Output Not Listed In Sound Options?

Aug 18, 2010

Ubuntu seems to see my onboard audio card but I can't select it in the Sound options as my output. In Alsamixer I can adjust settings and have turned on SPIDIF. It's listed when I run the lspci command as

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller
So what is the problem?

Ubuntu :: Sound Does Not Come Out Of Headphones No Digital Output?

Sep 29, 2010

Sound comes out of my laptop speakers, but only when hardware is selected as "Analog Stereo". "Digital Stereo" does not function at all. I don't think this is a priority though.

More importantly, my headphones do not have sound unless it is only partway plugged into the headphone jack. However, this does not help as sound is still coming out of my speakers. The instant I plug it all the way in, the sound disappears from both speakers and headphones. I have not tested this with multiple headphones (no access), but these ones work just fine in Windows 7 plugged in all the way.

I have tried an amazing number of things back in '09 when I was running 9.10, but gave up as no one could provide the answer. The threads that are related are:
[URL] (Don't worry about read-only file stuff, that is all resolved) [URL]

I am now on a FRESH install of 10.04 Lucid Lynx, so any changes I made in attempt to fix it is gone.

Looking into alsamixer, I found that there is a headphones column, but no bar. It just says it's on. So headphones don't seem to have their own level of volume that's set too low.

Here are some outputs: lcat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec:

Codec: Realtek ALC663
Codec: Nvidia MCP78 HDMI

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Lost After Switching Output To Digital?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 1366x768 Not Listed Under Options With ATI Radeon HD 5830?

May 26, 2011

I've just bought a new rig. The graphics card (as listed in the title) is a ATI Radeon HD 5830. With the normal out of the box drivers I can get a resolution of 1366x768 (The native resolution of my 32inch panel) but the 3D performance isn't good.With the ATI proprietary drivers installed 1366x768 isn't in the options (The ATI menu and the normal one)So I need to generate an xorg.conf and add the resolution?[edit] OK so I checked to see if the 3D performance was any better with the proprietary drivers (despite the funky resolution) and it caused Minecraft (The only game I really play under Linux) to freeze on startup. I think what I'll do is stick with the Radeon Open Source driver (which runs all the visual effects nicely anyway) and just do all my gaming in Windows

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.4 - Lost Digital Surround Output

Mar 10, 2011

Alright so I just upgraded my 11.3 x64 to 11.4 using zypper dup and have now lost the ability to play digital output 5.1. Before doing the upgrade I was running alsa rather than phonon but apparently the upgrade decided to enable phonon, and I no longer show digital surround output. The soundcard I have is a CM8738 and I am using the coaxial output on it hooked into my receiver. In system settings->multimedia->phonon->speaker setup the soundcard shows and I have the ability to select different profiles.

However the digital output settings only show stereo and the sound output device the only one listed is CM8738 Digital Stereo (IEC958). I have selections for analog 5.1 and analog 7.1 but neither put anything out of the digital connection. As I said I was running alsa before and was able to do straight digital pass through which allowed my receiver to do the decoding and use all of my channels. How can I setup phonon to use digital passthrough, or switch back to alsa and get that setup again.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Select Digital Stereo Output On Nvidia Audio

Jul 27, 2010

I've done a search on google and on here regarding my issue and I couldn't see anything.

I have the following audio device;

00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
At the moment I have it playing through Analog Stereo Output. (See attached image)

The sound is mostly flawless and I haven't been having troubles with it.

But, because I play audio through my logitech speakers (2 speakers, 1 subwoofer) I should be able to get digital stereo sound shouldn't I?

From the drop down box of the attached image there are two options for Digital Stereo;

Digital Stereo Duplex IEC958
Digital Stereo IEC958 Output + Analog Stereo Input

None of them work for me. Even if I do a restart, I get no sound from Rhythmbox or Firefox.

I use the pulseaudio sound server and I have the PulseAudio device chooser installed. When I had the Digital Stereo Duplex IEC958 selected I used the Volume Meter playback to see if there was any sound coming through. Both left and right showed activity but nothing came through the speakers.

Hardware :: Digital Output (S/PDIF) For SoundBlaster Live! Not Working?

Feb 19, 2010

After many fruitless weeks of reading forums, newsgroups etc, I still fial to get digital output working my SoundBlaster Live Platinum. Ordinary PCM output is passed to the digital receiver witout a problem, but as soon as I try AC3 or DTS it's all silence. I have unmuted the IEC958 channel in alsamixer and added gain to them. However all still fails. find below the output of relevant commands:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Override The Default Sample Rate Of Digital Audio Output?

Apr 12, 2010

After some fudging around, I managed to get my 64-bit karmic install to output sound digitally to my amplifier. So far, so good. The amplifier indicates a sample rate of 44.1KHz, while it is capable of 48KHz (higher sample rate would be better, i assume). Also, more annoying, it indicates no signal when no applications are producing sounds, causing it to miss the first second of output when I unpause my music. Windows 7 outputs everything as 48KHz, apparently also outputting silence as the light doesn't blink when i pause a media player.

The question then being: How do I override the default sample rate of digital audio output (if this is even possible, googling suggested that this might be overridden by applications); How do I make my sound driver output silence when no application is outputting sound.

Additional info:
- Ubuntu Karmic x64 (dist-upgraded from jaunty)
- Exaile media player with Normal playback engine and Automatic audio sink
- Asus P5Q-E motherboard
- Philips DFA888 amplifier

Hardware :: Palm Device Listed In /proc/bus/usb/devices - But Not In Lsusb Output

Sep 5, 2009

When I connect my Treo 650 with a USB cable it works sometimes and not others. A little investigation showed
that it always works when I see the Palm device listed in the output of lsusb. While trying to diagnose why it appears sometimes and not others, I discovered that it sometimes appears in /proc/bus/usb/devices and not
in lsusb. I didn't think that was possible!

I've tried running kudzu (the Red Hat hardware discovery tool) and killing and restarting udevd.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Logitech Z-5 USB Not Even Listed In The Sound Menu?

Apr 10, 2011

After cheering the Ubuntu Developers team on the great work they did with hardware recognition, I was suddenly stunned by the silence from my USB speakers this afternoon. Although previously correctly recognized and fully functional, after installing several non- audio updates, the sound from my USB speakers ceased.Moreover, this pair of Logitech Z-5 USB speakers aren't even listed on the Sound menu (System > Preferences > Sound) although lsusb lists them correctly. I have an embedded sound adapter to which no speakers are connected. My PC runs on Ubuntu 10.04. What should I do to get the sound through my USB speakers?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Finally: Digital AC-3 Surround Sound With Pulseaudio ?

Oct 29, 2010

Here is the update to the old thread that somehow disappeared "HOWTO: A52 Encoded 5.1 Surround Sound Awesomeness with PulseAudio and ALSA on Hardy" thread (archived here). See also this bug report.There are two steps here: add the a52 plugin, and tell pulseaudio to use it.

Step 1:
Go to a terminal and do the following:

sudo bash
echo "pcm.a52 {[code]....

Pulse should come back on its own unless you disabled autospawn.Now pulse should be aware of your digital surround output. Go to System -> Preferences -> Sound. Click on the "Hardware" tab and change the profile to one of the 'Digital Surround 5.1' profiles. Play some sound (I like to test with www.pandora.com) and enjoy!If it doesn't show up, it probably means that alsa didn't create it correctly. To test if alsa sees the a52 device, type:

aplay -D a52:0

If it errors out (audio open error: No such file or directory) then that means it did not like your asound.conf settings. You might learn something by looking at the output of 'sudo alsa reload' or just 'aplay'.[code].....

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Convert A Digital Sound Stream To Analogue Before It Is Sent To The Hdmi Out?

Jan 13, 2011

how to have alsa convert a digital sound stream to analogue before it is sent to the hdmi out? I would like to modify asound.conf. I do not have gnome as a desktop so I need to manually input the changes to asound.conf. The reason I ask is. I have sound going out of my acer revo to both spdif and hdmi. The spdif goes to my receiver and I want digital passthrough for that. The hdmi goes to my tv and I need it to be analouge before it gets to the tv. Right now, I get passthrough to both the spdif and hdmi. (the tv is all static) I want to have alsa convert the signal for the hdmi output only.

Alright, just installed maverick, got the sound to work great on the 7.1 with pulseaudio. works great in movies, and everything else just wonderfully. the only thing i am stumped by is how to get the sound to loop from my digital input on my soundcard to my analog speakers also on the same soundcard. i know the sound feed works on the input as the makeshift VU meter/bar on my digital input in the sound preferences moves, but i can't get the sound to actually come through on my speakers.
