Installed Radeon HD 5550 card - now festival speech crashes


Hi,

Debian testing:
$ uname -a
Linux jilldando 2.6.32-trunk-486 #1 Sun Jan 10 05:53:18 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

Today I upgraded my PC with a Radeon HD 5550 video card, it has HDMI o/p with sound on it. After boot up I get get the usual sounds from the mother boards onboard intel sound card EXCEPT speech.

Initially I thought it would just be that alsa might be piping synth usuage to the Radeon card so I edited the alsa-base.conf file.

So I added the following to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
alias snd-card-4 snd_hda_intel

and changed:
options snd_hda_intel index=0
to:
options snd_hda_intel index=0,4

and rebooted, but this made no difference. Still startup sounds and sounds etc but no speech.

I used the alsa project to check and these are the results:
Code:
wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh
http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=04...28941598581e0d

I have re-installed festival: still no good.

Do you think the speech is going to the HDMI of the radeon HD 5550 card?

If I run festival, (that works ok) but when I make it speak:

ah... on doing some more research I tried the following and that has solved the problem, but I have no idea why and would love to know why.

added to the beginning of my /etc/festival.scm file:
Code:
(Parameter.set 'Audio_Command "aplay -q -c 1 -t raw -f s16 -r $SR $FILE")
(Parameter.set 'Audio_Method 'Audio_Command)
