July 9th, 2010, 04:01 AM
I'm having sound problems. I get sound but it sounds horrible. It seems to be worse when i'm playing something in xbmc. When i type this command
aplay -l i get this
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: ALC880 Analog [ALC880 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I'm not sure what i can do to get this working.

What version of ubuntu and was it a fresh install or upgrade?
Can you post the output of these terminal commands for me please:

uname -a
aplay -l
dpkg -l | grep "alsa"
head -n 1 /proc/asound/card*/codec#*
Please also include the make/model of your PC/Laptop.
Please post text output using code tags (the # in toolbar)
