ION and HDMI/Optical Audio
I've read all the threads and none answer my question specifically (either wrong card or wrong problem). I apologize if this has been resolved already but after days and days of trying to fix this problem I am at my wit's end.
I have ASRock ION 330HT with HDMI and Optical audio out. I am trying to run it as an HTPC using Ubuntu. I can get the video working on HDMI with no problems.
My issues start when I try to get audio working. Here's what DOES work:
1.) 2.0-channel audio over front-speaker analog port.
2.) partial audio over optical port
What doesn't work:
1.) Multichannel audio, period.
2.) HDMI audio out
Here's what I have tried:
1.) Upgrading to ALSA 1.0.23
2.) Unmuting SPDIF outputs in alsamixer
3.) Changing asound.conf with multiple different things (don't remember them all now)
4.) Upgrading and downgrading NVIDIA drivers
5.) Banging my head.
Can anybody please let me know what I need to post here to help solve my problems?
