Weird sound issues Fedora 13 - SB Xtreme Audio + ATi HD4870 HDMI

Hi there,

I've followed some instructions that I've found searching this forum and what I've concluded was that my audio plays only from the HDMI port of the VGA...

Changing the settings around to use the SoundBlaster card does nothing.

I've installed pavucontrol and setting the HDMI port to profile Off does nothing. When enabled the bar under the levels seems to play music. (It shows activity) But when I send the stream to the Sound Blaster the bar stays 100% and doesn't do anything. (no activity and no sound)

Btw... I can't verify that the HDMI port actually plays out audio...

Tanks!

P.S. I'm new to Fedora and linux all together. I've tried Fedora in the past F11 I think but that's all.

The "cat /proc/asound/cards" command produces this:
0 [HDMI ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI
HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfbaec000 irq 33
1 [Generic ]: HDA-Intel - HD-Audio Generic
HD-Audio Generic at 0xfbbfc000 irq 16

The "/sbin/lsmod | grep -c snd" command produces this: 12

"yum update" has been executed several times without the need to update anything.

It sounds like just a bug with the Creative card...can you follow the steps at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_t...sound_problems and https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_t...Audio_problems ? Thanks.

Re: Weird sound issues Fedora 13 - SB Xtreme Audio + ATi HD4870 HDMI

I've uninstalled the alsa-plugins-pulseaudio but this didn't do anything.

How can I disable the HDMI output? It seems that it selects that as default.

lspci gives this output:

Re: Weird sound issues Fedora 13 - SB Xtreme Audio + ATi HD4870 HDMI

that was my initial guess - we generally have trouble with new Creative cards - but if it shows up in pavucontrol / gnome-sound-properties, it must be supported on _some_ level.

The entry on the wiki is somewhat ambiguous - it just says "[ ] supported [ ] not supported ". It reads like someone didn't fill in a template entirely correctly.

Disabling the HDMI output shouldn't really be a problem, when you tried to send a stream to the Creative card with pavucontrol, that was a good test. The HDMI output on the video card wouldn't be able to get in the way of that.

I suspect that snd-hda-intel does support the card to some extent, but doesn't work exactly correctly, hence my suggestion to file a bug report, after going through the various debugging steps in those pages.

Re: Weird sound issues Fedora 13 - SB Xtreme Audio + ATi HD4870 HDMI

I've installed my old card (Audigy 2 ZS) and with pavucontrol I've disabled the X-Fi and HDMI output and now I can enjoy sound with linux.

No on to RT2500 Wireless and the extremely slow download rates...
