November 19th, 2011, 04:51 PM
I'm installing a frontend on our netbook to play files from our main backend. The problem is that there's no audio. Also, when I press esc to get out of the video it goes to a black screen. This is on 10.04 & the frontend audio settings are ALSA:Default. I tried looking at the the Mythtv How To to configure settings but I didn't see the Line slider in alsamixer that is discussed. Here is my log file:

scan for audio devices in frontend |settings|general and use one of the scanned devices.

Also check using alsamixer that the device is not muted and the volume is not too low.

Thanks that worked. It's so funny, I've been using Myth for so long & I never realized that was a button! It's so big that it looks like a Title to the page or something.

It was introduced in 0.24 I think.
