Post on mythtvusers to get hdmi audio working

For HDMI cards run aplay -l and look for an output like this:

Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI]

For this case, the key is card o device 3.

Setup for Myth:

Audio output device: ALSA:hw:0,3
Passthrough output device: ALSA:hw:0,3
Max Audio Channels: Stereo
Upmix: Passive
Enabale AC3 to SPDIF passthrough checked
Enable DTS to SPDIF passthrough checked
Aggressive sound card buffering off
Use internal volume controls off

For mythmusic:
Utilities/Setup -> Setup -> Media Settings -> Music Settings ->
General Settings
and then set Audio device to ALSA:plughw:0,3

asound.conf may be deleted for myth or changed as below:


pcm.!default {
type hw
card 0
device 3
