I have recently installed FC4 (latest patches as of today) on a new Shuttle XPC (with the latest BIOS):
- Zen ST62K
- ATI IXP sound device
I have followed the directions on these two sites (except I have an /etc/modprobe.conf):
The analog output is working fine, as I have tested with:
# aplay -D plughw:0,0 ringtone.wav (from the Gnomemeeting install on FC4)
But when I try this:
aplay -D plughw:0,1 ringtone.wav (this being the port for the SPDIF output)
I show that it has accessed the device and thinks it has played, but I hear no sound at all. I know that the receiver (a Harman/Kardon) and the fibre cable are fine, as I have tested with a Kiss DVD Player that I have and the sound is fine.
I have also gone into alsamixer and ummuted everything and turned the volume all the way up.
So, in net, it appears FC4 may see and access the device (no errors) but no sound. Any ideas?
