I am using a sound card with the C-media CMI8788 chip. This card has both analog and digital outputs, which Linux sees as two different output devices.
The Problem I am having with VLC is that it always changes the output device in its settings to analog. I constantly have to be going into VLC advanced settings and picking Alsa: Digital for the output.
After that the sound outputs fine.
This only happens with VLC. All other programs on my pc output sound perfectly fine. I am using Lucid.
How can I set the default to be the digital output?
