How do I change the default sound card?
#1
I would like to change the default audio to the headphone jack. I am running dietPi (no gui/de).  I know I can change the alsa default card with an environment variable or asound.conf, but I think that only affects alsa utilities. I'm also using sox, so I just want to change the default (first) card at the OS level.  Actually I could settle for getting sox to pick up a different card by default but I have not been successful in that.

So I think I need to create a file in /etc/modprobe.d, with lines like 


Quote:options sunxi_sndcodec index=0
options sunxi_codec index=1

I also tried reversing them:
Quote:options sunxi_codec index=0
options sunxi_sndcodec index=1

but it's not working. The hdmi output is always listed as the first card.


Code:
[email protected]:~# cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [sndhdmi        ]: sndhdmi - sndhdmi
                      sndhdmi
 1 [audiocodec     ]: audiocodec - audiocodec
                      audiocodec

I'm just guessing at the driver names based on lsmod. Any ideas? Thanks.

here's the output of lsmod.
