    Just got my pi yesterday (model 2 b)

    installed retropie and retroarch emulators, and it emulates just fine, minus a lack of audio through hdmi.

    Is this a setting I need to changer per emulator? or is this a change that can be made to the /boot/config.txt ?

    if it is the later option, I am unable to save changes to that file using the “sudo nano /boot/config/txt” command. How would I enable write permissions for this file?

    Thanks in advance,
