Re: No Sound - Puzzle

From a terminal run alsamixer, f6, select Xonar DSX

On another terminal cd to a directory of ogg files, start a playback of a file.

Oh the desktop start pulse audio volume control. Monitor shows strong active playback levels

Switch to terminal running alsamixer, mute master front which mutes all output channels.

Return to desktop pulse audio volume control, monitor continues to show strong active playback levels even though alsamixer thinks all output channels muted!

The music goes down and around and comes out nowhere!

I just installed an Asus Xonar DSX pcie card. Alsamixer recognizes it and PulseAudio Volume Control show a strong signal level during playback but no sound from the speakers. The system works with the onboard Nvidia sound, no problems.

I assume the problem is a missing linux driver for the Xonar but I have seen claims that Xonar works out of the box on linux systems.

Does anyone have this working?

I am using Debian Stretch.
