Default Enable audio through HDMI on GT240

I just got the new GT 240 card that does not require SPDIF wire hookup. According to EVGA I need to have nvidia HDMI audio driver if I want to have audio through the HDMI output.

Is there a kernel driver that will support audio over HDMI for nvidia cards. if there is how do I make the kernel detect my NVIDIA card.

I have Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit version) running on quad core dell computer.

Thanks

You should only need to upgrade to ALSA 1.0.23. Complete details here.

Do you know if it will be included in the final version of ubuntu 10.04 (in the current beta version it is not included, 1.022.1 is included.)

Highly improbable, as 1.0.23 arrived so late in the release cycle for 10.04 (about two weeks from release, and after Beta 2). I know I wouldn't take it if I ran the Ubuntu release process.

Default Re: Enable audio through HDMI on GT240

Anyone figure out the needed /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf settings for a GT240?

I have GIGABYTE GV-N240D5-512I GeForce GT 240 512MB 128-bit GDDR5

installing 1.0.23 was not enough by itself. alsamixer will show the card (F6), but aplay-l does not list it.

There are reports (lost when the XBMC site went down) for working GT240s; I believe they were using settings similar/identical to G210 users. It was all the 220s that had problems...

I've tried playing with modprobe, but so far I still do not see any nvidia devices in aplay

Can you copy all the same diagnostics that odror did at the beginning of the thread, zim2dive--for your system, of course.

Default Re: Enable audio through HDMI on GT240

I finally figured out the trick to getting 1.0.23 installed...

from the XBMC page: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title...T220,_or_GT240

Quote:
Note for Ubuntu users make sure to remove linux-backports-modules-alsa-`uname -r` or your newly compiled alsa drivers will be ignored.
I can now see my GT240 with aplay -l

Can't test yet tho.. my @#%@#% Denon does not decode HDMI audio... but a new one is on order.
EDIT:

Your receiver can't do LPCM? Piece of crap.

Decodes digital audio over coax/SPDIF, but not HDMI.

EDIT: one of those nasty tricks Denon plays... things you don't even know to look for before you buy. But since nvidia didn't have HDMI audio until just recently, it didn't matter. Mobo has digital out.
