Often the audio quality is very bad so I've to restart the audio backend.
When I'm using
ALSA I can't since the command to restart it seems not to find the file (strange as ALSA works..) when I'm use pulseaudio, I can restart with
pulseaudio -k in a terminal.
OSS never worked to me. When Ubuntu used ESD, the audio always worked (Ubuntu 10.04 or maybe earlier).
Someone encountered similiar problem? Which backend do you use?
I've an integrated nvidia soundboard (MCP77/78 HDMI).
