KnoppMyth R5F1

Posted 06-18-2007 at 07:21 AM by Caysho

I did a fresh install of KnoppMyth, and I'd forgotten how to do the sound setup for an external amplifier.
Putting it here for my records.

run alsamixer (probably as root)
Find "IEC958 Playback AC97-SPSA" and set it to zero.

Then go into the General sound setup.
I have:
Audio output device - /dev/adsp
Passthrough output device - ALSA:lec958:{AES0 0x02}
Enable AC3 to SPDIF passthrough - ticked
Enable DTS to SPDIF passthrough - ticked

If the passthrough device doesn't look like this, when AC3 passthrough is selected there will be a lot of white noise generated.

This version isn't picking up media I put in the DVD drive (such as divx).
