Re: GT430 no Sound? - Andro - 07-21-2011

nothing... i did try 7,8, & 9

still getting the popup inside xbmc... failed to initialize audio device, check audio settings

Re: GT430 no Sound? - Andro - 07-21-2011


this is the graphic card I am using, any concerns there?

did i miss a step somewhere during downloading openELEC? do i need to manually download drivers or something?

Re: GT430 no Sound? - Andro - 07-22-2011

ok, im going the wrong direction here. while continuing to google and cus my way through this i must have broken something even worse.

now ...

root ~ # cat /proc/asound/cards
--- no soundcards ---
root ~ # aplay -l
aplay: device_list:240: no soundcards found...
root ~ #

how should i proceed? clean install?

since you are at that point try this out
they are the kernel and system files only difference is that it included speaker-test rename both files KERNEL SYSTEM and place them in the update folder of openelec

follow the steps i had post do not included the asound.conf at least not yet

now a couple of questions

do you have the computer directly connected to your monitor or do you have a switch/splitter/stereo if you do disconnect it and go direct from computer to monitor

print output of aplay -l and post after you do the upgrade that will help out to give me the card and device number for the next step

speaker-test -c 2 -r 48000 -D hw:X,X where X = the card and device number you get this will give you static coming out of the speakers everything works out well

if it does not ls -F /proc/asound/cardX where X= card number from aplay -l post that on the thread

we can go on from there when you post back

Re: GT430 no Sound? - Andro - 07-22-2011

Ill try this when I'm home! Thanks.

After I download those files what's the best way to put them in the update folder? Use the same tool I had previously used to edit asound.conf?

The computer is connected directly to my TV via HDMI.

same way

Re: GT430 no Sound? - tom_say - 07-23-2011

print out of

dmesg | grep HDMI or hdmi


cat /proc/asound/card1/eld#1.0


cat /proc/asound/card1/codec#1

you did remove / rename asound.conf at least for now ?

Yes, I have removed asound.conf.

Re: GT430 no Sound? - tom_say - 07-24-2011

For HDMI audio to work, both monitor_present and eld_valid must be 1

for some reason your monitor is not reporting the edid value correctly so you will not get audio

lets try this please edit modprobe.d/sound.conf and put a # in front of the last line that says options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=0 probe_mask=0xffff,0xfff2 and also print the output of

ls -F /proc/asound/cardX again thanks

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.0.log | paste

dmesg | paste

aplay -l
and paste the links

basically what you will have is a list of more hdmi devices after modify the sound.conf you can try them all with speaker-test -c 2 -r 48000 -D hw:1,X where X is the device number if you do get static sound from one of them use the card and device number within xbmc

good luck
