For others; to get sound working over HDMI:
Sound Output to HDMI
Custom Output to plughw0,3
Drop to a shell, run alsamixer and un-mute the channels
Make a .asoundrc file in xbmc user's home folder
I'm having an issue with any nVidia driver after 190 wrecking the refresh rate of the HDMI so my TV refuses to show anything (works fine on my monitor). I think it's a known problem with the nVidia driver however.
Thanks for the sound info!
Well this is what mine does when I turn it on:
1. The power light doesn't come on immediately.
2. The fan starts up straight away and is running fast.
3. The power light comes on and at the same time the unit makes a high pitched noise.
4. A second or so later the machine beeps, the fan slows down, it displays the startup screen and the hight pitch noise stops (or at least goes very quiet).
Does anybody else experience this?
I don't think it is the fan as I've disabled the smart fan in the bios so that the fan is running full speed all the time and it's very noisy and continues to run fast and noisy past the boot up screen, but the hight pitch noise stops as soon as the machine beeps.
It's not a big problem - as soon as the boot screen is displayed the high pitch noise is gone and doesn't come back or at least you can't hear it... just wondering if I've got a slightly faulty one or whether this is just the way they are and would be considered acceptable and within normal parameters by the manufacturer/retailer.
