    A easy way is to reinstall all the alsa packages and linux-image which will give you 1.0.20

    Or just install linux-backports-modules-alsa-karmic-generic which installs 1.0.21 to a separate place that get priority when loading modules if it exists.
    I'll definitely give that a shot, as I am not concerned about the HDMI audio.

    Simply installing the backports didn't work, so I purged ALSA and removed the backports and am now running the ALSA script to install 1.0.21. I am pretty sure that's what I had on here before, but we'll see if that re-enables my on-board sound card.

    Same thing. Though I just use VGA now (1360x786@60Hz not 1080p ) + analog audio

    Yes, that's the way. Full walkthrough:

    Thanks for that; unfortunately it made no difference. I am starting to feel like I'm hitting a brick wall; is a wipe-and-reload worth a shot? I don't know what else to do here.

    Sound over HDMI with GT220 will not work for the forseeable time (I don't expect it before jan 1st.). You could try getting other sound devices working and using that.

    That's what I've been trying to do, and now I feel kind of stupid.

    I booted into a Live CD to see if it would be any different and it was not. Then I realized that I made a major hardware change to my computer yesterday (new video card) and never checked the BIOS settings. My video adapter was set to PCI, not PCI-E, and the on-board audio was set to Automatic. I changed it to Enabled and booted into my OS and wa-la; audio has been restored.

    Good luck to you guys trying to get HDMI audio working; 1.0.22 sees the audio device but doesn't seem able to use it.

    Re: Nvidia GT220 & Audio Device "0be2"

    I just built a handy-dandy new box and threw in a Gigabyte GV-N220OC - 1GI (I remember the name due to repeated searches for it on a Chinese website), which features the GT220 chipset, so I wanna throw my two cents in on this subject.

    First, there is no SPDIF in on the card, and I'm fairly certain that this is not available on any of the GT series chipsets as I've looked at quite a few in the shops around here and none of them seem to have that, though a couple did have connectors for extra power.

    Second, I took my box to one of the local TV stores (they were impressed by the Compiz Desktop effects making the windows jiggle like jello), but were confused, like me, by the fact that there was no audio with the video. I had downloaded (with a borrowed monitor) the nVidia 190.53 driver, which is the one recommended on the site and installed it fine, so the video on the 47" LED I was testing out worked fine, the only issue was the audio.

    Third, this issue has been brought up on the nvnews forums and someone claimed that HDMI audio is not supported by Linux yet, which I can't testify to in any way whatsoever, but it does seem that this is not a problem localized to Ubuntu.

    Since I haven't bought the TV yet and I had to return the borrowed display, I have no way of checking all the useful hardware info at the moment, but I do remember lspci returning the nVidia audio device with the 0be2 at the end of it, but I seem to recall that the Realtek onboard audio chipset was not displayed in lspci, which seemed strange to me considering I could plug in headphones (into the front or back) and they seemed to work. I would really like to see audio working through HDMI, but as I plan on buying a receiver and hooking up a nice sound system, I suppose it is not necessary. It would just be a LOT more convenient for me as it would eliminate one extra set of wires running into the receiver. Has everyone given up on this for now? Has anyone tried the beta drivers for the card (I believe it was 195.30)? Has anyone ever gotten lspci to identify both onboard audio AND nVidia audio at the same time? It seems like this problem should be solvable, it just feels like I'm missing a small detail about how the set up should work.
    It's always a good idea to "man" a command before you run it. I may not know what I'm doing, but I'm pretty sure my computer does.

    I found a *bit* of useful information on this problem:

    http://mailman.alsa-project.org/pipe...er/024231.html

    It seems that nVidia is working on this problem, though I looked into the month of January as well and it seems there has been no activity on it as of yet. Might be worth paying attention to this, although whether or not it ends up in the new driver is probably an entirely different question.

    I have a different Gigabyte MB, but as I posted in my earlier post:

    Code:
    $ lspci | grep Audio
    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05)
    01:00.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation Device 0be2 (rev a1)
    So my system is aware of both the onboard Intel audio and the nVidia audio device. Could it be that your onboard is on the USB instead of the PCI bus? Check lsusb and see if it shows up there.
