[SOLVED] My Audio is screwed up (again)

Postby mdavidg » 31 Dec 2016 06:32

I'm not blaming it on pulse audio this time. I screwed it up all by myself.

Basically my sound card thinks it is a mixer so it can't see that I have a 5.1 system with a subwoofer. It just sees my headset and microphone.

Kurotsugi, I reinstalled pavucontrol and that seemed to correct the problem. Go figure. Not sure what LFE Mixer is but since the Pavucontrol option worked I'm going to close this thread.

Thanks.
