I’m trying to use XBMC Live via usb with an MSI N210 MD512H graphics card. I’m attempting to use audio via HDMI. So far, I am able to stream youtube and shoutcast with sound working fine (receiver indicates PCM). When I attempt to play a DVD or video file, I don’t get any sound. When attempting to see what the signal is from the receiver, it flashes, occasionally saying no signal. Will these instructions work for my MSI N210 graphics card? Has anyone seen this and if so, what can I do to correct? I am using Beta 3.

All these pastebin things do not work

The pastebin logs are still there, you can check them in any browser: http://pastebin.com/f5f9654bb
With that said, the post you are referencing is over a year old. The methods described in the first posts were priceless at the time they were written, but they are no longer necessary using the newest versions of XBMC Live / Dharma. Check out the link in my signature for a quick run-through. My guide is for Dharma 2, but the same steps apply, just change the link to download the latest XBMC Freak version, which is currently Dharma 3. After that upgrading to Dharma 4 is quite easy.

i discovered recently that I didn't have multichannel sound (which is my case meant I didn't have a center speaker, as I currently have a 3.1 setup) when playing multichannel soundfiles. So I tried to follow this guide to correct it. After a lot of time spent on this I did fix it, but definitely not with this guide. Just a word of warning to people who read this thread. The things I found:
So my advice would be, use the newest nvidia driver and first check if you actually have a problem before you try any tips from this thread.

Is this included in Dharma or are these steps still necessary to achieve proper sound through HDMI (I will be using a GT430)?
