A problem with the audio output

Post by EllsworthWisoky »

I have a USB sound card connected to my TV via an optical cable, and I have configured MythTV to use ALSA:default as the audio device. However, when I play any video, I get no sound at all. I have checked the volume levels and they are not muted. I have also tested the sound card with aplay and speaker-test, and they work fine. What could be the cause of this problem? How can I fix it?

For me it is completely unpredictable which of the sound cards detected by MythTV do actually work. I just try them all until I find one that does work. From the setup page you can play noise to check if the sound is working.
