9 I won't be telling you what to one way or the other about pulseaudio,
10 but I don't expect ALSA to stop working any time soon. Just for
11 reference, to get sound to my TV when playing video with mpv
12 (originally a fork of mplayer, so possibly accepts most of the same
13 parameters that would work for you in smplay), I use this parameter:
15 --audio-device=alsa/hdmi:CARD=NVidia,DEV=0
17 Looking at your aplay output from the old kernel, putting this in
18 Smplay might work:
20 Output driver: alsa/hdmi:CARD=NVidia,DEV=1
22 I wonder though if it means anything that in the new aplay -l output
23 for your TV it says, Subdevices: 0/1.
25 Cheers,
