Hi again,

Softdevice is working but I can't select the sound card I want to output 
too.  I don't know what its looking for exactly.

My command is
sudo LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1;DISPLAY=:0.1;/data/src/vdr/vdr -P"softdevice 
-ao alsa:intel8x0 -vo xv:full" -Pfemon -Pyaepg

[softdevice] ffmpeg version(0.4.9-pre1) build(4718)
[XvVideoOut]: displayAspect = 1.334975, displayRatio = 1.333333, PAR = 
[XvVideoOut]: max area size 2046 x 2046
[XvVideoOut]: using area size 736 x 576
[softdevice] Subplugin successfully opend
[softdevice] Video Out seems to be OK
[softdevice] Initializing Audio Out
ALSA lib pcm.c:2090:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM intel8x0

I have a sound blaster Audigy -0- its my default sound card, or alsa 
card 0, and I have an intel8x0 sound card as alsa card 1.

I tried -ao alsa:1 but it doesn't understand what I want.  What device 
name is it looking for?

BTW, I have the sVideo port on my computer setup as a second display on 
my X-Server, hence the DISPLAY=:0.1 -- this works just fine so far.  I 
only need to output to the second audio card and I'm good to go :)
