My brother has just noticed that I'm not hearing the right channel in my Mythbuntu (10.10) setup. I'm using a Stereo to RCA splitter cable (like this) and I've downloaded the sweep left and sweep right test sounds here but I can only ever hear the left one.
If I plug only the right channel in, I still hear the left test sound, and if I only plug in the left channel, I naturally hear the left sound, too. But I never get to hear the right sound. If I plug in a pair of headphones, I hear left in left and right in right.
Does anybody else use these Stereo to RCA splitter cables? I'm guessing (and would hope!) that it's not a "feature" to duplicate one channel in both the red and white RCA connectors. So mine must surely be faulty?
I've never noticed a problem until now (except that sometimes I have to turn the volume up when certain people speak, so I guess that was a symptom all along).
I'm going to buy a new one tomorrow but I'd like to hear from anybody using a similar setup, to see if yours is similarly plagued.
