View Full Version : [ubuntu] Strange sound problem with 5.1

August 5th, 2010, 01:07 AM
Hello all!
This is my first time submitting an issue over here.. so, let me first apologize for my bad English, it's not my native language.
I'll try to be as much specific as i can.

Firstly, i use Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, 10.04 64bit
I recently updated ALSA Drivers to the latest ones.. (Still the problem described bellow exists)
This is my ALSA Information from the script.

Now... whats my issue..

When ever i'm playing a file in any player, Rhythmbox, Exaile, Totem...
and i mean a sound file, i can't listen to my 5.1. Actually... when ever i choose from Sound Preferences -> Output -> Profile: 5.1
I can listen to the Bass kicking, and all my speakers works.

Now, when i change manually the song, or automatically... or even when i Stop and then Start again the playback, i loose the Bass and not all my speakers works as intended.

When i go to Output Profile again, 5.1 it's still selected.
I have to change back to something else, like 4.1 or stereo and then back to 5.1 so the Bass and all speakers work again as they should.

I hope that makes... umm, sense.. nah i don't think so :p
I hope you can understand my problem. Again sorry for the bad typed description.

I thank you for your time spending on reading this and thanks in advance!
