Until recently I had an Ubuntu 10 mythtv setup (sorry, I forget the
mythtv version). I could watch content in mythtv with sound coming
out over the SPDIF. When I wasn't watching content in mythtv I could
get sound out of apps in another X session, or using mpd, etc over the
I've just upgraded to Mythbuntu 12.04.1. Now mythtv (0.25.2+fixes) is
the only application that can output sound, even when I've shutdown
the mythtv front and back ends I don't get any sound... even when
root $ aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav
Any tips on how to diagnose and fix this sorry state of affairs?
Thanks very much.
