xbmc no audio

Sun Dec 29, 2013 6:10 pm

I am fairly new so started out by using the image from here http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 38&t=50543 as an Airplay server for my car. This has worked flawlessly!! I like it because my WiFi adapter works as an AP and just works for me. I want to now add a monitor in my truck and want to add XBMC on top of my current setup, I know XBMC has airplay built in but just wanted to keep what I have and leave airplay off in XBMC. I used this guide http://michael.gorven.za.net/raspberrypi/xbmc and it installed fine after I changed the config.txt to up the gpu from 16 to 256 but I have no audio. I still have audio thru airplay(shairport) but get nothing thru xbmc. I switched it to analog 2.0 in xbmc and am using the analog jack. What's weird is I hear a pop when first start a video like it is initializing the audio but I get nothing. I can also (while a video is playing with no sound) send thru shairport from my iPhone and the audio plays fine. Is shairport not allowing xbmc to play sound?
The only strange thing I can see is my CPU at idle with xbmc open is running at 90 to 100 according to xbmc but 50 to 60 according to Top. Should it be that high with just xbmc open... runs around 0 with xbmc closed.

Any help would be appreciated!!

It would help to know what cable you are connecting it to your screen with.
You could say my love for Linux is terminal ;)
