Hi,

I'm a bit helpless with my current XBMC configuration as I cannot get sound to work over HDMI. I installed the current version of XBMC (and wiped the old version completely).

Last time I got the sound to work after following this guide (http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW...ntroller). However, now this does not seem to be working for me.

The audio channel is not muted. I get an error when trying to start a video file. The debug log can be found here: http://pastebin.com/Q90RjpYd

Can anyone help? Below is the output for aplay -l and aplay -L.

Thanks in advance.

Only thing I could get to work was by purging pulse audio and then setting the output and pass through in XBMC to HDMI (Alsa)

@TheFincher: thanks, but this did not help.

I finally got sound to work after I played around a bit. It turned out, setting the playback to Custom with 'plughw:0,3' did the trick.

Cheers,
Hans
