Enable navigation sounds over hdmi in xbmc

Navigation sounds in xbmc didn’t work for me in linux when using hdmi as my default audio device. This is quick and easy to fix. Simply add the following to /etc/asound.conf

pcm.!default {

type plug
slave {
pcm "hdmi"

Save the file and reboot. You should now have navigation sounds working over hdmi in xbmc.

    Great tip – thanks! I modified that to my output device (iec958) and although it didn’t fix navigation sounds, i do have other sound working (finally) that wasn’t working before like audio previews in nautilus.
