Subject: [gentoo-user] Laptop - Switch video/audio output to HDMI?
Date: Tue, 29 Nov 2011 23:20:01
1 Hi,
2 I'm finally joining the 21st century having purchased my first new
3 TV in more than 13 years. My laptop runs KDE with Nvidia drivers. I'm
4 wondering what the process is to switch the audio & video output of my
5 laptop the its HDMI port? I'd like to try using xine to play DVDs. I
6 assume in Linux I'm going to have to mess with both Alsa and X which
7 in the end sounds like a disaster waiting to happen but I figure I
8 might as well see if it's actually easier than I think.
10 When running as a normal laptop the machine uses the nvidia-drivers
11 package and the kernel's Intel HD Audio driver. If I want to deliver
12 audio over HDMI do I need to switch to the Nvidia audio device? Makes
13 sense but creates more problems testing if it doesn't work really
14 easily.
16 Anyway, just looking for someone to point me in the right direction.
18 Thanks,
19 Mark
