I have successfully been able to install my new Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102002
) into one of my PCI slots on my ECS motherboard. I run Linux and the Alsa drivers have successfully been able to detect and configure my soundcard accordingly. So yes, I can run alsamixer and the channels are all un-muted. Alsaconf also does list the Audigy Soundcard in the list (along with the legacy choice)
The problem is, when I begin to play some audio, it plays without any errors, but there is absolutely no sound coming through. The Creative speakers I use are plugged in correctly. When I try to listen with headphones it is still silent. All mixer levels are un-muted so that isn't a problem.
I noticed on this soundcard there are 4 pins for AUX. Would I need to connect this with a cable from the soundcard to the AUX pins on my motherboard? There is also about 9 pins on the soundcard which is labeled "CREATIVE" .... I want to know if I am missing something such as needing to use one of those speaker cables to connect the soundcard to the board with that cable? I don't have any "speaker" labeled pins on this soundcard, just the AUX and the Creative pins ... What can I try? Has anyone been able to use this card in Linux?
Again, any audio player is able to play an audio file fine, just that sound is not coming through. All soundcard modules are loaded with modprobe too. Any help is much appreciated.
