As above I am a total newbie to linux in general and Manjaro in particular, Manjaro was recommneded to me for ease of installation and it was very easy. However, a few small niggly issues have arisen that I would love to resolve. Please forgive the lengthy post as I feel the more information the better.
First my setup:
Dell Optiplex 790 i5-2400 CPU, 16GB RAM Nvidia GeForce GT730 GPU
Samsung 42" TV connected via HDMI to PC
CMI 8738 PCI sound card
Analogue 5.1 speaker system (3.5mm jack connections)
3.5mm lead from TV to line-in to play sound from TV to 5.1 speakers (works perfectly in Windows 7)
Manjaro Linux Plasma 21.0.7 with 5.10.49-1 kernel, all updates done and totally fresh installation, nothing addes or removed as yet.
My first issue:
There is no line-in option in the audio configuration for the sound car, so that I can get my TV to play through my 5.1 speakers. Can someone please advise what needs to be done/installed in order to get access to the line-in option?
My Second issue:
in the Configure Audio Devices" option all 6 speakers show correctly, however, the front left, front right, rear left and rear right are at 77% volume while the sub-woofer and the centre speaker are at 100%. If I push the first four (front and rear L+R) to 100% and then go out, when I go back into the same settings, then the speakers are back to 77%.
When I run the command inxi --audio this is the output I get:
[mark@DELL-Manjaro ~]$ inxi --audio
Device-1: NVIDIA GK208 HDMI/DP Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
Device-2: C-Media CMI8738/CMI8768 PCI Audio driver: snd_cmipci
Sound Server-1: ALSA v: k5.10.49-1-MANJARO running: yes
Sound Server-2: PulseAudio v: 14.2 running: yes
I do also have PipeWire installed by default however, it seems it is not running, although it was yesterday when I first ran inxi --audio.
So please, any assistance for the two above issues would be most appreciated.
Hi all, thank you, but I no longer need assistance with this as I an no longer continuing with Linux. I am simply too new and experiencing too many frustrations and issues.
