    Nvidia GT220 & Audio Device "0be2"

    I just bought an OEM GT220 on eBay, it is the PCI version of the GT216. It's also the highest end VDPAU Feature Set C chip available for the desktop. I've seen numerous references to it including an audio decoder on board (instead of having SPDIF in).

    Sure enough it shows up:
    Code:
    > 03:00.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation Device 0be2 (rev a1)
    However linux has no clue what it is and ALSA doesn't know how to use it. Does anyone have any patches or hacks to get this working?

    I currently have
    Code:
    00:07.0 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP72XE/MCP72P/MCP78U/MCP78S High Definition Audio (rev a1)
    On board, but without getting the '0be2' working I can't get audio out via HDMI.

    I feel your pain I have a GTS 250M and can't get the hdmi audio working because I can't get the audio device working. Although mine is 0be4. Hopefully they are close enough that drivers can be made for both of us easily.

    I have read someone got it to work with aplay, as in speaker test. However, still no sound. I have geforce 210 with this device:

    02:00.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation Device 0be3 (rev a1)

    It shows no kernel modules or drivers loaded for this device, and aplay of course doesn't see it.

    This is the forum where I was reading:

    I'm in the same boat as everyone else. Hopefully someone gets this working soon in ALSA.

    Code:
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT200 [GeForce GT 220] (rev a2)
    01:00.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation Device 0be2 (rev a1)
