I have an GT520 graphics card and I am trying to get the sound working with my XBMC setup and I'm having trouble.
Things I have completed:
List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
01:00.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation HDMI Audio stub (rev a1)
which is set to unmuted
Everything looks well, so ran:
aplay -D hw:0,3 /home/ollie/Music/alex.mp3
Playing raw data '/home/ollie/Music/alex.mp3' : Unsigned 8 bit, Rate 8000 Hz, Mono
aplay: set_params:1059: Sample format non available
with no luck..
Playback device is default
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 1 channels
Using 16 octaves of pink noise
Playback open error: -2,No such file or directory
also tried running through
plus 20 other websites with selective "fixes" etc.. but no luck >_<
I am a complete beginner with Ubuntu so this is a really steep learning curve for me, not sure I'm learning much though as its all just headaches atm!
Thanks for any help
