I wanted to provide some feedback with my setup. I have an ASUS motherboard with ATI graphics (god forbid) and working SPDIF output.

I am using MythBuntu and upgraded to ALSA 0.19 to eliminate any problems early on. Using similar settings all things worked as expected.

Does anybody know what the 5.1 bug is about and if it is fixed in trunk? I'm getting correct digital audio, so I'm confused as to what is wrong.

Regards, Andrew

Allen, I am trying to get HDMI output working with my MSI K9N2GM motherboard and I followed your instructions to the best of my knowledge and still no luck. Any ideas on what I can do to fix it? Thanks, Dave

Dave, Send me an email and I will try and help you through it. Use this form


Allen, I just came across your how-to and your request for verification around the HDMI parameters. I've used the HDMI procedure specifically on an ASUS P5N7A-VM and it works. You will need ALSA 1.0.19 (for this board at least). Users should also note that the MythTV setttings need to be set to "ALSA:default".

For reference, the syntax I use is:

pcm.!default {
type plug
slave {
pcm "hdmi"

I believe this is functionally the same as yours. --Christ 14:07, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Thank you. This is what I had hoped to have someone verify. Good news. Allen
