I think it is Ralf, here, when the Audigy2 is running, it has a midi port, 
just feed it the file and it plays, if your startup (rc.local) feeds it the 
cd's soundfont file using asfxload IIRC.  Here, I've since found pavumeter, 
and somehow set up a simultainious feed in PA, and if I play a cnn news 
video, or a utube video, this pavumeter shows the audio is making it that 
far, but from there I guess it goes to /dev/null.

Maybe that is YAC? (yet Another Clue)

I haven't tried to play a midi file, hang on a sec, darn, no .midi files 
survived the drive crash so I can't test that ATM.

Someone suggested I run, as root, update-pciids, which did then allow the 
video card to be identified, but not its ATI audio on the same card:

03:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RV610 audio device [Radeon HD 2400 
        Subsystem: Diamond Multimedia Systems Unknown device aa10

Thanks Ralf.  I added the LAD list to the CC line as I see this is a private 
msg.  Normally a reply goes only to the list, so you'll get two copies I 
suspect.  I guess the list server isn't setting the Reply-to: line?

Cheers, Gene
