    Soundstorm audio problem


    Hey,

    I am currently using Fedora 4 and i get no audio. I have an NF7-S with built in Soundstorm and i am trying to get sound from the optical out, to a receiver. I can hear sound if i hook headphones up to my comp but nothing from optical. Does anyone know what i am doing wrong or does linux not support the optical out? Please help and TIA.

    Well i think i am a little closer to solving the probelm but not quite there yet i am very new to linux and not used to all of its config settings so i have been messing with the audio settings and i found the IEC958 output aka S/PDIF and i now have that enabled but still no sound i also found an option for an external receiver and enabled that and still nothing. is there something i need to disable to make the sound go to the optical out?

    Does anyone have any suggestions????

    Well anyway, the optical out seems to be working kinda. The only time i get anything out of it is when i am looking at a flash based web site i only discovered this when visiting quake4game.com and whoa! suddenly i had sound but still no sound for music movies or anything else.

    you could try the offical nforce drivers on the nvidia site, I would of thought it would be a matter of enebling spdif or optical in any alsa control program

    Thanks, but i already have the official drivers installed and have the optical out enabled in the ALSA control panel.


    Anyone else?

    You might want to play around with Alsa a little, it can sometimes be a little temperamental.
    If your sound troubles are connected to cd's and dvd's you should check that you have an audio cable connected between your soundcard and the cd/dvd device.
