I'm trying to watch a DVD on my laptop using VLC. The background sounds and music play fine but the dialog is non existent. In VLC the Audio > Devices and Audio > Channels are both inactive. If I look at the Sound Settings there doesn't seem to be anything there except volume and balance. The speakers and headphones are the same. The laptop is a Dell 1525 and lspci reports
Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)
If I rip the dvd using handbrake everything is fine.
