Analog or digital audio?

My Acer Revo 3610 frontend is currently outputting analog audio with a
stock Fedora 12 install. The only changes I remember making were to
change the audio device to ALSA:front, and change the ALSA:default
mixer to control the Master control rather than PCM. I haven't tried
to set up the optical output on this machine, and haven't removed
pulseaudio either.

'aplay -L' and 'aplay -l' will provide details of your configured ALSA
devices. The mythfrontend logfile will provide details which may be
helpful in determining why sound is not working.
