Part 2 : Getting HDMI Working on Nvidia ION

This page is part of a sequence of steps for creating a tv-true platform for viewing TV streaming websites on your television:

  1. To get the HDMI audio output working you need to unmute the S/PDIF using the alsamixer and ensure the HDMI is the default audio

    alsamixer 
    

    In the alsamixer, use the right arrow key to highlight S/PDIF and press M to unmute.

  2. Create the .asoundrc in home directory to set HDMI to be the default:

    nano ~/.asoundrc
    
     pcm.!default {
      type plug
      slave.pcm "hdmi"
    }
    
  3. Run "speaker-test" command to check default audio.

    speaker-test -D default
    

Now move onto the next part of the installation
