I'm building an HTPC. It used to be a Windows 7 with no issues, but, since I want to use mdadm for my disks, I'm changing to Ubuntu with XBMC.
Core i3 2100T
I went to
Hardware tab and changed the Profile to
Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output. This is the only way I can hear something coming from the speakers on my TV. No other profile sounds anything. So this tells me the drivers for Intel sound are working.
However, I can't hear anything else from any other program, including Ubuntu sounds. So, I believe there's a misconfiguration somewhere; Ubuntu has another sound Profile as default, so I that I can't hear anything from the OS or XBMC.
