View Full Version : [ubuntu] Help disabling HDMI Audio

August 1st, 2008, 06:45 PM
I have an ATI card with an HDMI port, I also have two delta1010 cards for audio capture and playback. I have an asoundrc card making them one virtual device. The problem is that the HDMI seems to randomly either be assigned to HW:0 or HW:2. Since I use an asoundrc file to bridge my cards that means that if the HDMI switched when I reboot I have to go back in and change the card number from 0,1 to 1,2 and back every time. This is getting really annoying, I would like to either set the ATI HDMI to one of the two permanently or disable the audio altogether, and suggestions?

This is how I got my HDMI sound to be consistently listed as last. Edit /etc/modprode.d/alsa-base and put this at the end.

options snd_hda_intel index=3

The problem is that pci devices are not assigned the same irqs and so, device numbers on every boot. You should really set up your 1010 cards as index=0 and index=1 anyway. There are directions for fixing all that here:


You can ignore all the PA stuff since you are probably using jack exclusively.
