View Full Version : Sound over HDMI?

January 25th, 2009, 12:44 PM
I can't get audio to work over my HDMI connection. Gigabyte GA-M78SM-S2H motherboard, Mythbuntu 8.10 64 bit.

I posted about this before, and someone helpfully pointed me to the instructions at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6589810#post6589810. I ran the Alsa upgrade script, and according to the instructions there, I should be able to see the HDMI audio when I type aplay -l.

Trouble is, I don't. This is what I see:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: ALC888 Analog [ALC888 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 1: ALC888 Digital [ALC888 Digital]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Any idea what to try next?

Many thanks
