Ionitx-p-e Audio: Analog whining/HDMI popping with Generic Build - govgeek - 05-05-2011

After setting up my su2300/ion board with the generic build (ion specific would not work - media not found errors), I used the asound.conf settings listed under the ION A Series audio help to get hdmi audio working - specifically:

pcm.!default hdmi:NVidia
pcm:iec958 hdmi:NVidia

I experienced popping sounds every time I started/paused any audio sources and appeared to clip the very begining of mp3's. I then removed the asound.conf and switched to Analog audio, and now hear a very high pitched whine on the speakers. I tried booting to a standard xbmc live cd (usb key) and the whine is not present on analog, so I am guessing this may be driver related? Not sure if/how to update/change the audio drivers.

If anyone has suggestions let me know and I'll give them a whirl.

Also just installed audio mixer plugin and mute 'line',0 , the whine goes away and I still have sound, but the mute setting does not stick after a reboot.

can you attach the output of "amixer" before and after the change here? then i can integrate this as default
