AV-Linux HDMI No Sound on a Asus p8z68 deluxe/gen3 MB
Please Help
My system: Asus p8z68 deluxe/gen3 w/Intel i7 chip and 16gb of ram, also a wd sata drv 1tb and a dvd/bluray writer cd player and a nVidia GeForce 560 GTX Ti 1040 Graphic Card using the HDMI for Video and Sound going thru my Pioneer Receiver.

Operating system: Dual Boot; Windows 7 and AV-Linux 5.0.3, But the only way I could get av5 to boot off the CD or to Install on my hard drive was to enter this bit of code “pci=noacpi acpi=off” without the quotation marks, why? I would like to know, But it works. And It has its Problems, Like:
The Problem with av5, I have NO SOUND and av5 can't see the CD player, also av5 can't see my network printer HP Officejet pro 8600 plus

Windows on thee other hand works great, and that's what my wife likes to use for her stuff.
I gave up my Apple and ProTools because I saw Ardour and liked what I saw. But?

AVLinux has only a 32 bit version and is aimed at older hardware, IIRC. Using a 32 bit version on your machine for producing music makes no sense at all, I would recommend to go for a system were 64 bit versions are available, like Dream Studio or Ubuntu Studio.

I'll Keep Searching
I'm a musician and some of the problems that some of the other distros has had with audio has been cleaned up in AV-Linux 5.0.3.
I have given up on Apple and ProTools just so I can start using Ardour for mixing down.
So it looks to me that nobody on this site works with av5 or I have created an unsolvable problem. I shell keep searching for another site. I'll come back later to see if anyone knows anything or if somebody wants to help.

“To help us to help you, please include the following information in any new thread you start:
- Which distribution and version are you using?
- What exactly are you trying to do, what have you tried and what is not working?
- Hardware related question? Which hardware is involved and which drivers are you using?”

I thought that I had covered all that in my post.
I'm running AvLinux 5.0.3 and the nVidia video card and using the HDMI for video and sound and I'm not able to get any sound. I need to run multi tracks for mixing down for my music (Ardour). Some systems will not handle multi tracks. AvLinux looks to be moving in the right direction.
Driver: nVidia driver that comes on avlinux.
And if I'm at the wrong site. Just tell me and I'll move along, I'm a newbie so you will probably be talking over my head anyway. I need someone that knows how to talk to a newbie.

OK, you have misread that. The text you have cited is part of my signature and appears under any of my posts, it was not related to this thread, the information you gave was sufficient.

IMO its always a good idea to link to other threads you have on the same subject, it can reduce duplicated advice.

AFAIK the floowing is correct. Sorry if I make any mistakes/ommisions.

nVidia GTX 560 Ti-
Running new 'cutting edge' hardware on a older linux distro, or 'stable' linux distro is hit and miss at best. Dont know why you got a GTX 560Ti unless you are a heavy gamer, a cheap card would have been a better option. For a musician I would suggested $100-150 on a sound card and $50-100 on a video card, not $200+ on the video alone. But its done now....

You will need the nVidia drivers for HDMI sound output. AVLinux is based on debian stable. Debian stable has nVidia driver 195.36.31 in the repos. The GTX 560 Ti needs nVidia driver version 270.26 or higher to work, earlier drivers are not suported by that card. That is why running the script to get the nVidia drivers results in a blank screen....

trulan on the remastersys is wrong, you dont need a newer kernel for nVidia HDMI to work. The link he/she posted is specific to the GT520, not nVidia cards in general.

It might be best to ask the AVLinux forum about getting newer nVidia drivers than is in the repos. I *should* be able to give directions, but I'm not that familiar with that distro. So it would possibly save you a lot of effort and possible reinstalling to ask them before following any advice I might give you, ;)

HP Officejet pro 8600 plus-
Have you got the drviers? hplip should do it-

You might have to d/l and install the file from HP. Before doing that, I'd try getting hplip and associated packages from whichever package manager you prefer or is stock with AVLinux.

CD player-
Unlike windows, with many linux distros the CD/DVD drive wont show up in whatever file manager you are using unless you have a disc in there.
