I have a simple problem... my mobo has both spdif and analog outputs. I
want to squirt sound out BOTH of them simultaneously. Seems like it
shouldn't be a hard thing to do, but after spending a few hours trying to
literally *decipher* the alsa wiki on the subject (
it's like trying to learn french from the deaf. All you get is a different
form of *wrong*.
Here's what I have in my .asoundrc so far:
And that works in the following manner... by default, everything goes out
the SPDIF. If I do an "aplay -D digout song.wav", it'll (also) go through
the spdif. If I do an "aplay -D anaout song.wav", it'll go through the
It's at this point I'm stuck. I need to beat it into alsa that I want to do
BOTH, but can't find a single example on the net of how to do so. It
certainly seems like it *should* be possible with some form of copy or
slave, but I can't figure out the proper syntax from the alsa wiki.
Someone HAS to have done this, so I figure I'd ask and quit beating my head
against the wall.
Thanks in advance!
