Hello All,

First post here. I'm fairly new to FreeBSD and I am currently using GhostBSD for my desktop. I would use the GhostBSD forum, however the registry does not accept my email account. As the title states, my speakers that are of a generic brand(Insignia) are not currently working. I have them plugged in and have the power on and I put the volume all the way to its top level. I thought I found the solution here: https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/snd_hda-line-in-jack-does-not-work.77468/. However, I am not familiar with the configuration file that I was trying to edit: /boot/devices.hints and that only ended up muting my sound when I rebooted after an edit similar but not the same to what the link is displayed above. I really don't want to go back to GNU/Linux and I am will never, ever touch Windows again. I am really enjoying GhostBSD and want to keep it this way. Already installed FreeBSD 13 on my Lenovo RS140 server and plan to do things with that too now that I have some more time on my hands. But that help is for another thread, I guess. Any way, here is the output of a few commands that I saw the gentlemen in the other link use to display these things.

Hello and welcome,

First make sure the system is using the correct sound device.
sysctl hw.snd.default_unit should return 0 (meaning your analog dev.pcm.0).
If it returns 1, put hw.snd.default_unit=0 in /etc/sysctl.conf to change the default.

Then try adding the following in /boot/devices.hints
hint.hdaa.0.nid22.config="as=1 seq=15"

bsduck,

Thank you so much for your help! I was struggling a bit yesterday trying to figure things out for these speakers to work. It worked perfect after those edits and a reboot. Again, thank you for your help, bsduck.
