Thread: 5.1 digital sound

  1. #1

    Default 5.1 digital sound

    I am trying to get 5.1 digital surround audio working with MythTV. All of the guides/troubleshooting guides say start by making sure everything works outside of MythTV before trying to get sound working right in MythTv. Makes sense. I've got audio working outside of MythTV, however, I am having trouble getting 5.1 digital surround to work.

    Here's what I've got:

    Video capture card: pcHDTV-5500 - audio out plugged into line-in jack on sound card
    Sound card: Turtle Beach Santa Cruz (cs46xx) - digital output going from "versa jack" to Multi-channel input on receiver
    All sound will be played through receiver
    SUSE 11.1 64-bit with GNOME

    After reading a bunch of stuff all over the net, I ensured that Pulse is disabled, and in fact, I removed all of it I could.

    The user has been added to the "audio" group.

    If I run speaker-test -c6 -Dplug:surround51 -twav it goes through all of the tests, but I only get audio from my two front speakers. If I play a DVD using VLC, all speakers work in Dolby Surround and DTS Surround.

    I've got everything unmuted in alsamixer, and all volumes turned up to at least 79%.

    Default Re: 5.1 digital sound

    I do not have 5.1 hardware, so I can not pass on any experience. Unfortunately the openSUSE users who do have 5.1 working have not written a wiki nor how-to.

    Here is a link to a thread of a user who managed to get this working with pulse audio:
    sound card, surround 5.1 not working in opensuse 11.1 - openSUSE Forums

    If it were me, and if I had this hardware, and if I was stumped on this, I would go on an IRC chat channel (install the program "xchat") on freenode, IRC #alsa and ask the guru's there for help. One may need to ask 1/2 to 1 dozen times, at different times of the day, before one finds a guru who can help.

    Great idea. I'll try that.

    speaker-test does not do digital output, so it will never work. It will only work if you have your outputs hooked up analog (front speaker out to front speakers, rear speaker out to rear speakers, etc.)

    I had thought it might be possible to configure the speaker test to check digital audio. But I do not know the details, since I do not use digital hardware. You could google on this and see if that is the case.

    I did find confirmation that this is the case. speaker-test does not work with digital output.
