    Re: TVTIME Solved Sound in Ubuntu 10.10

    $ lspci | grep SAA
    It will output something like that :
    04:08.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7131/SAA7133/SAA7135 Video Broadcast Decoder (rev d1)
    04:08.0 is the address of your card.

    • Then, the following command

    $ LANG=C pactl list | grep -A2 'Source #' | grep 'Name: ' | cut -d" " -f

    ex: $ LANG=C pactl list | grep -A2 alsa

    now select your tv card alsa_input.pciXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    follow below steps
    will list all source detected by Pulseaudio.
    For example, on my computer:
    alsa_input.pci-0000_04_08.0.analog-stereo
    alsa_output.pci-0000_00_10.1.analog-stereo.monitor
    alsa_input.pci-0000_00_10.1.analog-stereo
    The source name to use is the one with the right PCI address. Here the third one: alsa_input.pci-0000_04_08.0.analog-stereo

    • Edit the file /etc/pulse/default.pa with your favorite text editor:

    # gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa
    Add the following line at the end of the file (replacing source with the one you found):
    load-module module-loopback source=alsa_input.pci-0000_04_08.0.analog-stereo

    • Restart Pulseaudio

    $ pulseaudio -k

    I wish this made more sense to me, I'm having the no sound problem.

    I get an error after your second command:
    $ LANG=C pactl list | grep -A2 'Source #'
    Connection failure: Connection refused

    am I doing something wrong?
