View Full Version : [ubuntu] No IEC958 device listed in alsamixer?

September 14th, 2010, 03:08 AM
Hello, I have an ASUS P5W PH Deluxe motherboard with HDA Intel sound, and I want to send that sound via S/PDIF to my NVidia GeForce 240 (and then out via HDMI).

I have been following the instructions found here (http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php/DigitalOut), but have run into an issue. It wants me to set my IEC958 channels to PCM in alsamixer, but I'm not showing any IEC958 channels.

Have I configured something incorrectly that I don't see IEC958 in alsamixer, even when I do see it using aplay -l?

I am attempting this on Lucid Lynx. I have updated alsa to the latest version (1.0.23) to attempt to resolve the issue, but it hasn't helped.
