I am trying to get sound working on kernel 2.6.39 (under archlinux
x86_64 bit distribution) over HDMI to my digital receiver but without
luck. Before this post i asked in #alsa for help, and everything we
tried over there didnt get the sound over HDMI.
I connected headphones to the green jack and ran speaker-test and
there is sound over jack, analog sound plays fine. But runing
alsamixer un-muting spdif/iec958/spdif (1) and trying to re run
speaker-test doesn't output sound over HDMI to my digital receiver.
I tried to use /etc/asound.conf for global settings (tooked from
2.6.35 archlinux i686 installation) but does not work with 2.6.39
installation, even I am not able to play analog sound:
speaker-test -c2 -twav -l1
This above works without asound.conf, and it plays analog sound on headphones.
This is how i tried to play sound over HDMI:
speaker-test -c2 -D plughw:0,3 -twav -l1
The above command does output sound on 2.6.35 (but just over Fron Right)
I run alsa-info.sh script on both installation and it can be found on
(2) kernel 2.6.39 and (3) kernel 2.6.35.
I was hoping to get sound working with 2.6.39 (current official
archlinux kernel) over HDMI by just un-muting spdif with alsamixer,
but it seems not to be that easy.
