I wonder if someone can help, i'm struggling to get Flash sound in Firefox on my Minimal Ubuntu XBMC installation. I only seem to be able to get one of the other!! so frustraiting, so here goes:

And a /etc/asound.conf of:
Gives me lovely HDMI sound in Firefox Flash!! But not XBMC :-(. I get 'Failed to initialise audio device'.
Is it even possible to have both?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Anyone got an Acer Revo who has managed to achieve the same? I'm pulling my hair out here!

My setup is also a Acer Revo 3610 and I am outputing to my Sony TV via my Sony Reciever. I was having the same issue and found this solution here and here.
I changed my .asoundrc file to:
Now sound works over HDMI in both XBMC and in Firefox/Flash as well as xmame.

By the way, when you launch firefox via the 'Launcher' plugin does it go fullscreen? Mine doesnt, it appears top left?? And i can't make it any bigger. If i click the fullscreen button on a flash video it fills the screen though? Any ideaS?

if the settings from Zarquon doesn't work for you (it won't work for me either), just add to your ~/.asoundrc or /etc/asound.conf like musti already said:
Sound in Flash will work correctly, to get sound in XBMC just change the audiosettings from hdmi to default in XBMC.

I have a fresh install of XBMC 9.11 running on Ubuntu Karmic minimal (installed by this tutorial: http://peter.wurmsdobler.org/bricols/xbmc.html.) Now I would like to have a possibility to use a web browser launched in XBMC. I couldn´t find a simple HowTo for that purpose. I´m a more-or-less newbie with Linux so what I really need is a list of commands/very basic and simple tutorial how to make this happen. I would really appreciate your help.
