I'm having a problem with my Ubuntu and my subwoofer. It won't work until I go into sound preferences -> output tab and re-select the device. Two devices are displayed: 1: Internal Audio analog surround 5.1 (this is the one I have to use) 2: HDA NVidia Digital Stera (HDMI)
The problem is that this isn't something I have to do just once after boot. No, I have to do this everytime I want to listen to anything. IE: Whenever Rythmbox changes songs, the new song will not play through the subwoofer. I have to change the prefence on every single song. OR, whenever I watch a video, or open youtube, or do anything. And it's not really just the subwoofer. It's bass in general.
Basically, I can't even listen to music anymore because I always always always always have to re-set the sound preference on every song.
Now, I never had a problem before until I added a bluetooth adapter (dongle?) to my computer. After the drivers installed for that, my sound preferences won't work.
Why won't it just always work?
Please help if you can. Thanks.
