You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Have installed XBMC Live following the Lifehackers guide and this one http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=53888. But am having some issues with sound via HDMI

I have created the .asoundrc file ftp'd it accross to Home/XBMC but I still get no menu sounds. Is this the correct place to put it?

Code:
pcm.!default {
type plug
slave {
pcm "hdmi"
}
}

I set my audio settings to -

Code:
Audio output (digital) - Digital
Audio output device - hdmi
Passthrough output device - hdmi
Downmix multichannel audio to stereo - ON

However, when I try and select either 'Video or Music' XBMC restarts. If I set the Audio output device and Passthrough device to 'default' then it works no problem.

Does anyone have any clues? Huh
Ok Heres how to get menu sounds on the acer revo.


Code:
sudo nano /etc/asound.conf

and insert the following lines:

Quote:pcm.!default {

type plug
slave {
pcm "hdmi"
}

}


Then save and exit

Thanks All. I managed to get it working doing the following.

First I changed the etc/asound.conf to

Code:
pcm.!default {

type plug
slave {
pcm "hdmi"
}

}
Thanks Lefty!

However, when I selected 'Music or Video' I was back to XBMC restarting. So I changed my sound settings to..

Code:
Audio output (digital) - Digital
Audio output device - plughw:0,3
Passthrough output device - default
Downmix multichannel audio to stereo - ON

As described in http://www.revouser.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=19

Then I ftp'd my .asoundrc file across, but still no menu sounds with the mouse, but I do get the sounds with the remote. That'll do me nicely.

Thanks again for all your help....
