How to set default sound source?

Postby YeOldeFarte » Sat Aug 09, 2008 19:24

Greetings! I am trying to get sound on Tvtime. The graphics are fine, but the onboard Intel HD audio chip won't relinquish control so that my Audigy card can be used to set the volume. I've had it working once--by setting the volume up on the "Aux" slider for the Audigy card.The other applications would respond only to the volume control of the Intel HD audio source however. How do I get the Audigy card set as the default sound source? Kalsamixer has a default sound source selection box--but this will not override Kmixer, which does not have such a feature. Any ideas?

Have you tried running alsaconf in a Terminal window (as root user)? Then, when that is finished, use alsamixer also in a Terminal window (use TAB to see all settings).

Have you considered turning off the onboard sound in your bios?
