Comment 1 Jason 2010-12-08 03:02:29 UTC
Gah, mis-hit enter, sorry:

Description of problem:

Upon getting sound working on HDMI audio on nVidia ION GT218 by first performing:

$ aplay -D plughw:0,7 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Right.wav

(No other sound will work, see my Issue #1 bug# 661187)

Any sound now played through gnome will have a grating metallic sound over it.
Any .wav played from the CLI will sound normal
Any .ogg played from the CLI will sound like static

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

pulseaudio-0.9.21-7.fc14.i686
alsa-lib-1.0.23-2.fc14.i686
kmod-nvidia-260.19.21-1.fc14.1.i686
kmod-nvidia-2.6.35.9-64.fc14.i686-260.19.21-1.fc14.1.i686

How reproducible:

Works as described 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure all "S/PDIFs" are unmuted through alsamixer on the HDMI device.  They will be muted by default, essentially turning the signal off
2. Activate sound with: aplay -D plughw:0,7 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Right.wav
3. Play any sound through Gnome, either wav files from the file browser, or YouTube/Pandora.

Actual results:

Sound will yield a metallic grating noise on top of normal audio played through Gnome.
A .wav played from aplay will sound normal
A .ogg played from aplay will generate nothing but static

Expected results:

Normal audio output in all 3 cases.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 18:29:51 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
