Linux Radeon OSS with vdpau (howto)
I've been having trouble with audio on 3.13 kernel. Works fine on 3.12.
Just using 2 channel line out from the motherboard straight to TV. Made sure nothing (except front/rear mics) is muted in alsalmixer.

Here's my logs:

there is no hdmi audio device coming up. Are you using the xbmc.conf the howto provides?
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

I had the old startxbmc.sh version. Just updated, rebooted, and same issue. Although, I'm not using hdmi audio, I'm using 3.5mm audio jack.

All there. Sadly that device only support exactly one sample rate 48000. In Audio settings try to set it to Fixed 48000. Make sure it's not muted (alsamixer -c0 or amixer)

Tried with no luck. I realized I had an old sound card, so I threw that in, but still no sound.

Here's the logs with the new card:

amixer | pastebinit
aplay -l | pastebinit

Take your iphone and make a screenshot of your audio settings.

And remove that other card, it's drivers are highly problematic.

Edit2: Why the hell did you force Deinterlace to On? .... keep that one Auto for all files. It terribly bails out.

XBMC audio settings?

Other card removed, and was messing with deinterlace and forgot to revert it.

EDIT: XBMC audio settings: http://i.imgur.com/1SAVctN.png
speaker-test -c2 -D plughw:0,0
speaker-test -c2 -D plughw:0,0 -r 48000

And play some mp3 in xbmc and post the logfile, thx.

No audio output with speaker-test

Here's the log after failed mp3 playback

fritsch: when I resume my system from suspend, my screen is black requires a hard reset. Is there something I should edit in the suspend/resume scripts in "/etc/pm/sleep.d/" to get the video drivers to load properly?
@beschmid: No idea - i did not see any logfiles and my crystalball is away for repair.

@jaymax: Besides that it's still full of deinterlacing errors, It seems vdpau does not like your system :-)

Please whipe your .xbmc directory, don't install that "trackt" thing for now and get me a clean logfile when doing playback of

a) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/5572...lannad.mkv (has no sound)

and b) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/55728161/fail.flac

Only redo the settings the howto wants.

Alright, I'll do this tonight. I live with roommates, so I have to do it when nobody is watching anything. Just wanted to say thanks for all the help!

@beschmid: The modelines are totally broken on resume, furthermore your imon device goes nuts. Try overwriting the EDID (as shown in the audio workaround, perhaps that helps).
