Default Problem with Alsa and HDMI audio output

Hi!



I have a computer with a HDMI output. If I use the default audio output (3.5" jack) it works fine, but when I try to use the HDMI one, I have some problems.



I tried to configure it using the pulseaudio GUI, I can't get it working. If I use a program that allows to select which audio output use (mplayer for example), I select the hdmi output and works fine.



I tried using a .asoundrc file, but pulseaudio seems to ignore it...



Any idea? Thanks in advance

Yes, I've got an idea, but I'll be quiet, since I don't like o be called
a troll . I'm kidding.

What do you think? The answer already is in your question.

Why do you have pulse installed, resp. for what exactly do you need
pulse?

If you're using Linux there's something we call self-responsibility. If
pulse cause an issue, than why do you use it? Pulse isn't needed. If
it's a dependency of your DE, than get rid of that odd DE.

Regards,
Ralf

Default Problem with Alsa and HDMI audio output

PS:
If you should insist in using Debian for audio, than test
http://www.bandshed.net/AVLinux.html . I don't recommend to use it, but
for audio it's better than a clean Debian install, since for good
reasons, it ships without pulse.

Yes, of course. The user belongs to audio group. If it doesn't, I won't
be able to play any audio using mplayer or the 3.5" jack output.

Hi troll! ;-)

I agree with you. The only reason I have to install Pulseaudio is that
Debian installed "at the beginning of the times" for me. It's a
dependency of Gnome, I think. I know some adventages of using Pulse (it
must be more flexible to configure... but I can argue that).

The Debian I'm tuning is only for HTPC usage. I want to run a standalone
XBMC and forget about the rest... but I can't configure the audio of XBMC.

I assume that configuring Alsa with a .asoundrc will be helpful, but the
point will be uninstalling the not-desired software (Gnome and Pulse,
for example) and keep the system as lightly as I can.

I hope that when I uninstall pulseaudio I will have more control about
my system's sound :-)

P.S. AVLinux looks great, but 32 bits??? It's sooooooo 2000's :-P

That's one drawback. There at least is one other drawback, it installs
and starts with Compiz and for Nvidia cards it installs nouveau by
default.

I have XBMC both from stable (debian-multimedia.org) and unstable
(Debian proper) working fine[1] only with alsa. There was nothing
special I had to do.

[1] Well, from time to time I seem to loose AC3 pass-through, but
shutting down all audio apps (to free the module) and reloading the
module (snd-hda-intel) has fixed this for me every time. But this
happens also with other apps (e.g. mplayer)

Kind regards,
Andrei
