Yes for HDA devices... one is analogue, and one is digital.

I take it that it's still not working ?

have you tried adjusting sound levels in alsamixer ?

That's handy info...

OK, this seems to be related to a known bug in either gstreamer, or pulseaudio... see here:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/+bug/644644/+index?comments=all

First, make SURE Synatic, Ubuntu Software Centre, and Update manager are ALL CLOSED.

Lets try adding the PPA mentioned and then updating those packages....

First let's install the ppa-purge package, so we can back out of the changes easily if necessary:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install ppa-purge

If the above command fails with ANY errors, STOP NOW, and let me know... DO NOT carry on with the following instructions yet.



OK, now let's add the PPA:
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:diwic/fighting-rewinds

then update the package cache and upgrade the system
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Now reboot, and check your audio.
