I give up. I can't sign up to TinyPic, it keeps sending me to Photbucket. I don't know what I used to log in to that, and there does not seem to be any place to log in to TinyPic anyway.
I can run sound to the TV from XP, and that's what I will do. I hope I can get the on-board sound back for the local speakers. I REALLY do not want to have to reload PCLOS.
I have too many apps installed, not all of them from synaptic.
Thanx for trying, folks. I'm just not smart enough, and I'm certainly not patient enough to put up wth this any longer. Maybe some day NVidia will make a Linux driver
that allows output on both channels. Until then, local sound for YouTube and XP for TV shows and movies.
