System is up to date:

 there is nothing to do


Reinstall alsa packages:

Code:
[root@mythlounge ~]# pacman -S alsa-lib alsa-utils

There is no ~/asoundrc:
Code:
[root@mythlounge ~]# updatedb
[root@mythlounge ~]# locate asoundrc
[root@mythlounge ~]#


Speaker test command:
Code:
speaker-test -Dplughw:0,7 -c 6 -t wav

I have tried it with and without -D but obviously the -D is needed if I don't have the asound.conf file correctly configured.

My current /etc/asound.conf is:
Code:
pcm.!default {
  type hw
  card 0
  device 7
}

ctl.!default {
  type hw
  card 0
  device 7
}


asound.conf when configured via the MythTV interface is:
Code:
pcm.!default "plughw:0,7"


Where to next?

The asound.conf should be something like plughw:nVidia,7 if you are on the release repos and up to date. What version of mythinstall is installed?
Code:
pacman -Ss mythinstall
And check your /etc/pacman.conf

Code:
[root@mythlounge ~]# pacman -Ss mythinstall
core/mythinstall 8.3-7 [installed]
    LinHES installer/systemconfig GUI.


I removed my personalised asound.conf and attempted to setup it up via the LinHES setup menu however it never created a new file. I have copied back an old version that has the configuration as suggested.

The repos in my /etc/pacman.conf are:
Code:
[core]
SigLevel = Optional TrustedOnly
Server = http://bits.linhes.org/repo/$arch/$repo/

[extra]
SigLevel = Optional TrustedOnly
Server = http://bits.linhes.org/repo/$arch/$repo/

That is the correct version of mythinstall. Select another device hit finish then go back in and select the original device. It should backup asound.conf and create a new one.

I attempted to do that however it didn't work in this case.

I have restored an earlier copy of my asound.conf and have not had the opportunity to test it again.

Then there is another problem. Please run
Code:
sudo systemconfig.py -m audio
Then post your /tmp/systemconfig_debug.log

It all looks normal. Did it create the asound.conf this time?
Code:
ls -l /etc/asound.conf*

I have checked and it did create a new /etc/asound.conf and it is as expected
Code:
pcm.!default "plughw:NVidia,7"


But I have confirmed without a doubt that my suspicion is correct in that the issue is with my Amplifier. I connected my Myth box directly to my TV and can get sound out of Chrome and Trailers, thus the problem is my amp.

Could anyone suggest where I could get some help on this one?

Cheers

You said that your amp sees PCM for both system files ad and videos. Are you running stereo or multichannel? For either or both? I think with my amp the system was showing PCM when nothing was going on

Hi Matt,

When there is nothing running on my Frontend my amp does not detect any audio is passing through, it is only when playing something does the amp detect anything.

Thanks for the thought though.

Just this week I experienced the same problem. I am using an NVidia GT220 connected via HDMI to a Onkyo receiver. Sound from Myth worked just fine but anything using the ALSA asound.conf the receiver would show audio being sent but no sound. Plugging the HDMI directly into the TV and playing sound the TV would show a message of an unsupported audio format. I narrowed it down to a corrupt ALSA state. Here is how I fixed it:
Code:
sudo sv stop alsa-utils
sudo rm /var/lib/alsa/asound.state*
sudo reboot
ALSA should be set back to defaults and that asound.state file will be created on the next shutdown from the current ALSA settings.
The SPDIF outputs default to muted so use alsamixer and unmute the SPDIF outputs.
Then test sound in LinHES Setting -> Audio or some other way that failed before.

This worked beautifully, the only addition I would add is to delete the file /etc/asound.conf as well before you reboot as I had a little trouble but got it resolved.

There are now only a couple of more little problems but I will start new threads for these. I appreciate everyones assistance and especially thank brfransen for finding the solution.

Odd you had to delete the /etc/asound.conf as I didn't. And I am not sure what it would help unless it was modified from what LinHES > Audio had set.

I have also modified the LinHES > Audio Test audio button to unmute digitial outputs before it tries to play sound. This is part of LinHES-config 8.3-23 or later.
