Ok, new weirdness, noticed on some streaming video sites...

MP3 audio that is NOT 48k is not playing. Video playing fine. ACC fine, AC3 fine. MP3 48k ok (haven't checked 44k)

Eden Beta 3

aplay -l

Code:
:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI]
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

aplay -L
Code:
:~$ aplay -L
null
    Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)
hdmi:CARD=NVidia,DEV=0
    HDA NVidia, NVIDIA HDMI
    HDMI Audio Output

Have audio and passthru both set to default.
Audio is HDMI (goes straight into a Toshiba TV)
downmix is checked, AC3 and DTS unchecked.

asound.conf
Code:
pcm.!hdmi-remap {
type asym
playback.pcm {
type plug
slave.pcm "remap-surround71"
}
}

pcm.!remap-surround71 {
  type route
  slave.pcm "hw:0,3"
  ttable {
    0.0= 1
    1.1= 1
    2.4= 1
    3.5= 1
    4.2= 1
    5.3= 1
    6.6= 1
    7.7= 1
  }
}

have tried plughw:0,3 for both audio and passthru, nada
suggestions?

I recall having a similar issue once. Turns out my TV only supported 48k and 44k.
Anyway, the fix for me was adding rate 48000 to my .asoundrc
I don't have the config any more, but think it looked something like this
Code:
pcm.hdmi_hw {
        type hw
        card 1
        device 3
        channels 2
        rate 48000
}
