    Geexbox 2.0 on Trim Slice device

    I am using Geexbox 2.0 on the Trim Slice device. I have little bit adjusted Tegra 2 Harmony image. I had to copy kernel and firmware from preinstalled ubuntu.

    What is working?
    – HDMI video output
    – Software video decoding
    – Analog audio
    – Gigabit ethernet (but support seems to be little bit limited, propbably Geexbox is lacking most of the tools which are present on PC image)
    – OpenGL ES2 seems to work, but no idea how to check if it is hardware based or software
    – Booting Geexbox from SD card or hard drive

    What is not working?
    – Digital audio SPDIF and HDMI (that is strange, on ubuntu it is working fine, on Geexbox not, do not know why)
    – Hardware based decoding (but it is also limitation of original image)

    What are the limitations?
    – Two mice cursors
    – Every USB device must be pluged after kernel boot, otherwise it is not working
    – My USB remote control is not working and even not detected, on PC it is working fine
    – H264 video not possible (horribly slow)

    What is not tested?
    – Internal WIFI
    – Bluetooth

    Anybody could help how to solve digital audio output?

    In XBMC digital sound card is properly detected and visible in settings, but when I turn it on, every time I run movie or sound, I have message, “not possible to initialize audio device” and no sound.

    On Ubuntu it works fine (one diffirence is that ubuntu is using pulseaudio, geexbox not).
