I am very new to Ubuntu and linux as I have used windows only until yesterday.
I am attempting to send my audio signal to my pioneer receiver using a single digital optical cable which is plugged into my M2N SLI Deluxe motherboard.
I am sending video with a Geforce 8600GT video card through HDMI. That card does not support audio through HDMI.
The only thing I have got to work so far is my left channel speaker acts as a stereo left and my sub woofer is trying to act as a stereo right.
I was able to achieve this through altering the alsamixer settings. Can anyone point me in the right direction on this?
