I am trying to follow Cron0's method to get sound through NVIDIA HDMI.
In all 3 of my PC's and using Ubuntu 10.04, there is no file called /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf. The /etc/modprobe.d directory is present but no file called sound.conf. However, there is a file called alsa-base.conf.
Also, no file called /etc/asound.conf
Can anyone tell me if these files have been moved in Ubuntu 10.04 ? or should I create them ?

Hm, I am running xbmc under ubuntu on my Zbox, and everything is working perfectly...well almost.
I am using DVI out to my TV and the optical connection to my 5.1 amp.
Now...the only way I can get sound is to set the audio output to analogue, and if I do that, I lose the 5.1 audio.
If I set it to digital out I get an error about the audio hardware not being initialized.

I am trying to get this dam Sound working, I have spent about six hours on this now, I have tried:
and even the version on Ubuntu forums:
Each of them take an average of 40mins to complete (downloading files etc etc esp the LONG way round downloads 550mb of Linux headers....)...
Each time it goes through everything and every time when I go back and do a :
it doesn't update it to 1.0.23....
I am running all the commands as sudo, its running on a writable USB stick... what else could it be I would really appreciate the help!

automateXBMC Wrote:Hey guys,
I have also been struggling with sound issues with my Zotac Ionitx 330 FE board. That script from ubuntuforums has worked every time that I have
used it. You just have to be carefull (and patient) and do every step just as described in the guide ..it takes time.
Personally I have met a weird problem with my audio setup.
If I install a Full Desktop version of the Lucid with Gnome I can get the sound
working with doing the tricks as Alsa to 1.0.23 version and the NVIDIA drivers
256.35. Then unmuting all the muted things from alsamixer.
The BIG thing was the selecting the output device System -> Pref -> Sound options.....but,
If I want to use light Xfce desktop I don´t have those options to choose the output deviceas HDMI for audio...and therefore it stays muted??

automateXBMC Wrote:Hey guys,
Your links don't work for me, but I recognize that you were trying to reference cr0nos' instructions in one of them.
I just started over, and installed the latest version of the XBMCFreak Live CD. Then, I updated to the 256.35 nvidia drivers, and followed cr0nos' instructions (all I really did was substitute the latest nvidia driver url in his how-to).
Which version nvidia driver have you been using? Does the Alsaupgrade script appear to run ok? Each step (particularly the -c part) took about 5-10 minutes for me. It should work, I have been able to get 5.1 sound from dts/ac3 movies in mkv containers on a local hard drive, as well as mp3 audio over the network, and menu sounds. Seems to be working pretty well so far.

I installed Ubuntu 10.04, 195er nvidia drivers and managed to get audio working with the alsa update script. But I had trouble when using the latest 256er nvidia driver. Is there any advantage of using the 256 driver over the 195?
My major issue still is getting DTS converted to AC3 and passed through via HDMI.
I'll backup and rebuild the whole system again to check I did everything correctly.
Any suggestions are welcome.

encouraged by You, I tried also that last livecd from xbmcfreak and added cron0 advices for other stuff. Installation went fine....but system boots up to login screen and there blinks following error (when it tries to start xbmc, I think
GLib - WARNING **: get pwuid_r ( ) failed due to unknown user id
and it won´t go further.
Any helping hands for this one?
