Missing audio settings

Added by ramaza - over 8 years ago

Unfortunately I can no longer find the audio output settings in the latest version of Showtime. In the older versions (I think before 4.0) there was a separate audio submenu under the "settings" menu with a few things like "phantom center" and so on. Without this menu I can't activate my HDMI audio output and have no sound :-(

Thanks for your help.

I know. It's gone.

I cleaned up much of the audio pipeline. The idea is that you should just rely on pulse audio on Linux.

There was a tiny bug though that made it use ALSA anyway on Linux. I've pushed a fix for that right now.

Please upgrade and see if it helps. (I suspect not, there won't be any new settings inside Showtime)

Can you please paste the output from pacmd list-sinks from your system?

Now I understand. I only had ALSA installed because I am working in an embedded environment and wanted to keep the dependencies low. I will add PulseAudio and try to do the missing audio configuration via command line.

Here's the output of pacmd list-sinks on an Nvidia ION board. I will post the output of an ION2 board as well.
