Debian Hardware :: Nvidia GTX 260m HDMI Audio Not Showing Up In Squeeze?
Oct 31, 2010
When i was using windows it shows up and works, so thus it has to have the hardware onboard and the support for it sans the driver. It's incapable of working, i don't know why but it's not listing it, and it's just not working with it. I've tried a million times before to find a fix and they only have them for the desktop drivers and not the mobile ones. I was glad to see that i could finally use a second monitor correctly in linux now but the hdmi audio thing is driving me loopy and there doesn't seem to be anyone else who has posted with this issue before.

I am trying to get audio to play in tv/monitor via HDMI cable. It seems ALSA does not recognize my nVidia audio device and can only use the onboard audio device. Here's some relevant info I have collected:
I have a Nvidia GTS 450 GPU with HDMI. I want to have the audio on my TV that's connected with HDMI cable. But for some reason I'm not able to get the audio working. The card has its own audio chip. In Yast and pulseaudio I can see the card. But when I select it for playing audio it will not play on my TV.
Changing the cable doesn't work and don't know what to do. Every thing on the internet I have tried doesn't work. Here are some settings (if you need more just ask): Using openSuSE 11.4
Because of some kind of mismatch between the latest X-server and nvidia drivers which crashes recent versions of the xserver, I've downgraded with a clean install of mythbuntu 10.04.
Trouble is, now I'm getting no sound through the hdmi to the tv. When I try aplay -l I get info for sound card 0 (HDA Intel), but nothing is showing for soundcard 1e So it's not seeing the card, so I can't configure it.
I just got the new GT 240 card that does not require SPDIF wire hookup. According to EVGA I need to have nvidia HDMI audio driver if I want to have audio through the HDMI output.
Is there a kernel driver that will support audio over HDMI for nvidia cards. if there is how do I make the kernel detect my NVIDIA card. I have Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit version) running on quad core dell computer.
im trying to get my xbmc box running on an asus ion mobo. in gnome i set all audio output to the hdmi driver but im not getting any sound on the tv. Im a newbie by the way so it's problably some silly thing.. but i've included a link to my alsa information and pulseaudio settings in case it's a big thing.URL...
I recently built a new computer and got an evga 570GTX (Nvidia)I was using windows 7 pro that I got for free from school (MSDN or something) but it was crashing every 5 minutes. I could get on a play a game for 4 hours, but cuz cursing around or surfing the web was crashing all the time. Complete freeze. Couldn't start the task manager, number lock and caps lock jammed ect...
I was starting to think it was my MOBO failing because of the reviews until I installed ubuntu and everything was fine, no crashing no bull$#!7 no evil sauce.
Only problem was I installed 10.04 and fought it for a day with no luck installing the graphic card drivers but today I installed 10.10 and it picked up the nvidia drives right away.
Now the only problem I am having is audio.
In Windows I could play audio over the HDMI cable but in ubuntu I cannot.
I've tried using a headphone cable and that doesn't work either, and I know it's not the cable or the green sound port on my MOBO because other speakers work in the port, headphones work, all the cables work ive tested them on other computers and speakers and in cars, so the only thing left is the OS. I want to be able to play audio from the computer over the hdmi cable to the TV.
I've played around in the sound settings for hours... NOTHING.
I dont get how something as simple as audio over HDMI or a headphone jack/cable can be done by windows and not UBUNTU!
I am trying to connect my desktop computer to my TV and I need some assistance with using audio over HDMI. I have an NVidia 580 GTX graphics card and I am on Ubuntu 10.04. I compiled and upgraded to newest alsa, so my HDMI audio shows up as one of the sound cards. I also read that I should manually unmute everything that shows up in alsamixer that is related with the NVidia card, and I did that as well. Unfortunately I still don't have any audio.. Here's the output of aplay:
Code: $ aplay -L null Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture) default:CARD=Intel HDA Intel, ALC1200 Analog Default Audio Device front:CARD=Intel,DEV=0 HDA Intel, ALC1200 Analog
I've seen this problem on dozens of different forums but I haven't found anybody with my specific problem or a solution that has worked. I have an nVidia GeForce 8400GS which I just installed in my Debian box and I can't get the HDMI audio to work. Kernel version is 2.6.32-5-amd64, nvidia driver version is 260.19.36, alsa version is 1.0.21. Output of lsmod shows that nvidia module is loaded. Output of aplay -l code...
I feel like I've looked everywhere on the internet for a solution to this and I just can't find one. It seems that everybody is able to see their nVidia audio device using aplay -l and then the solution goes from there.
I'm just not able to connect the dots regarding NVidia, audio and HDMI.I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed and updated the ALSA driver to version 1.0.23 using the script posted in another thread on this forum. Although I got a config issue in the process my NVidia HDA device shows up with
xbmc@MediaPortal:/etc/modprobe.d$ aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: VT1708S Analog [VT1708S Analog]
why do I see four NVidia HDMI devices (3,7,8 & 9) in aplay -l, I couldn't find an explanation for this? Next I got smplayer giving audio over HDMI when selecting either of the HDMI devices in the audio config menu, but after a reboot, even if one of them is still selected I need to change and apply before I hear sound. Is Pulse Audio or alsa or some other thing interfering? I just do net get sound working although XBMC lists HDMI for sound output and for passthrough. More precisely I have the options (High Definition Audio Controller Digital Stereo (HDMI), default, custom) for Output Device and (HDA NVidia hdmi and hdmi) for Passthrough of which I tried all combinations.
I am interested in finding out the best way to get my audio to work from HDMI through my NVIDIA card.
I don't get an option for HDMI. Here is the interesting part. The sounds work sometimes but not all the times. Most of the time the sound works on the OS default sounds but wont work for movies, streaming and music. I am running pulseaudio. I am new to setting this audio up. The headphones work fine.
For X-Mas I got myself a nice little nettop running off an ION motherboard. how to enable HDMI audio output, but got it to work. I've realized that when I'm in XBMC (which is admittedly the only place I watch movies) certain sounds like gunshots will be extremely louder than something like dialog. My friend believes that I should mess around with the channels (to fake the center channel from the left and right) I don't want to threaten Linux, how lightweight I can make it which is critical to an HTPC, but considering XBMC just got a Netflix addon
I have, for days, been trying to get a Fedora 15 server to send audio output to the system monitor, an ASUS VH242H, via HDMI. The video portion works perfectly, allowing me to appreciate GNOME 3 for the first time. Sound, on the other hand, is non-existent.
From many, many threads on this problem, I have at least been able to provide some info which might help resolve this. Unfortunately, I have now read too much and followed too many suggestions to be able to find my way through the morass. So, once again, I built a completely new system to ensure a clean start.
Note also that to simplify things, I disabled the on-board audio in BIOS so only Nvidia has any sound output capability. Initially, 'alsamixer -V all' identifies the card and the chip as being PulseAudio. That would change if I used the <F6> option but I have not done so to keep things 'clean' at this point. The 'Master' is full on (100<>100), so muting is not a problem. Next, I searched for the device from the output of /proc/asound/card0 which would match the monitor.
The one device associated with the monitor_name is eld#3.0:
monitor_present 1 eld_valid 1 monitor_name ASUS VH242H
Both the kernel driver and the kernel modules are not what I think I should have. The kernel driver should be HDA NVidia for starters, no? Running modprobe -l and looking for nvidia returns:
'kernel/drivers /video/nvidia/nvidiafb.ko'and 'extra/nvidia/nvidia.ko' But I have not attempted anything beyond this point because I am just too confused as to what needs to be done and who or what manages these values effectively.
I have an ASUS P5N7A-VM motherboard and was using Optical out for sound without issues running OpenSuse 11.2. I then got rid of my receiver and wanted to just use HDMI sound. I couldn't get it to work so I upgraded to OpenSuse 11.3. I simply went to the Sound control panel applet and changed it to Internal Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI). I can not get any sound from it on OpenSuse 11.3 either. I have ran sound tests from the command line "speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav" which all run without errors, but nothing comes out of the speakers. I have ran the suggestion of one post "alsa-info.sh" and here are my results:
http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=27...860267e7079411. I have also tried the following post which did not resolve the problem since it seems to be Ubuntu based. I have undid everything from the post as well to make sure I don't stray to far from normal.
[HOWTO] HDMI audio on nVidia GeForce/nForce iGPU - XBMC Community Forum
I have an Acer Aspire 5542 & I decided to move from Ubuntu to Debian Squeeze .Everything is working fine bar the hdmi port .When installing Squeeze I used the Radeon driver (open source one,),That installed correctly but when I select dual monitors the OS picks it up but the TV itself just stays black.The graphics card is Ati Radeon HD 4200Here is my xorg.conf file
Using online Debian guide, installed latest nvidia-current, glx etc which seems to be 195.xx Machine boots to GUI but monitor setting menu doesnt respond nor is there an nvidia specific one. xorg.conf shows 'nvidia' driver but I suspect I am still on 'nouveau' since the synapatic package manager doesn't show an nvidia xserver-xorg-video choice.
Second question, any trailheads for using wheezy based drivers (i.e. nvidia's latest 270.xx) with squeeze?
I am new to using debian and have decided to build a Haswell-based i5 NUC (D54250WYK) to run Kodi. I have everything running smoothly until I realised that there is no audio.
I ran the aplay -l command and it only showed **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 1: ALC283 Analog [ALC283 Analog] Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
but no HDMI
A lot of people recommend the following commands : -sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/alsa-daily -sudo apt-get update -sudo apt-get install oem-audio-hda-daily-dkms and then reboot the device, but when ever i try and run it, the last step i get the "E: Unable to locate package oem-audio-hda-dkms" error.
I have Audio and Video over HDMI separately, but when I try to watch a movie, I just have Video.NVIDIA HDMI is my default, I'm using "Debian lenny amd64" and kernel is "2.6.32-trunk" on "Studio XPS 13" with "KDE 4.3".
I recently switched over one of my Ubuntu machines to Debian Wheezy. On the Ubuntu system I was able to get the HDMI audio working by adding radeon.audio=1 to grub. I've tried this on this system to no avail. The fglrx-legacy-driver causes underscan and I'd like to avoid it if possible for convenience.
Things I've tried:
fglrx-legacy-driver - Introduced underscan while not solving the problemradeon.audio=1 in grub boot line - No effectGoogling for several hours - There's a lot of topics about this, but most are old and irrelevant, and the ones that are current enough didn't solve my issue.Yelling at it - HDD light blinked a few times, no change lspci shows
I intend to update my video card to allow the operation of all three of my monitors in a triple monitor configuration. I have a 790i motherboard with Nvidia chips, so I will most likely choose an Nvidia card for the upgrade. As I will need connections for three monitors, I will have to have two cards. It is my intention to have one large screen field spread across all three monitors. I assume the best way of doing this will be to use an SLI Bridge to link the two video cards. Thus the two video cards must be identical.
Question 01: Is this the best way of realizing a triple monitor setup?
While I am upgrading, I desire to also give the system the ability to play Blue-Ray High Def Movie one of the 1920x1200 monitors I will be using.
Question 02: What are the pitfalls of playing BD-Discs on Debian. I know I will be eventually acquiring a BD-Disc player (once the prices come down a bit more), but when shelling out for two video cards, I better think as far ahead as possible and get the two video cards that will do everything I can foresee them needing to do.
Question 03: As all of my monitors have HDMI input ports, I assume that I will need Video cards that have HDMI output ports to play full 1080P movies. Is this a valid assumption?
Question 04: Can anyone recommend a video card that does what I am wanting it to do? (This is to say Two Dual Link DVI connectors and an HDMI connector per video card with standard and high definition video playback capabilities). Keep in mind that I will most likely need to purchase two of them, to the Super Expensive Bleeding Edge cards are probably not going to be a practical option here.
Question 05: Is there a way that I can just play the BD-Discs with full resolution in a window on one of the three monitors I will have connected to the computer without having to go the HDMI route?
Playback device is plughw:0,3 Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 1 channels Using 16 octaves of pink noise Rate set to 48000Hz (requested 48000Hz) Buffer size range from 64 to 16384 Period size range from 32 to 8192 Using max buffer size 16384
I've tried fixing this repeatedly (3.12, 3.13, 3.14) but everytime i find myself returning to 3.11 because that keeps working.... Some posts suggest running xrandr could get it working, but this is a headless installation, so I cannot use xrandr.
For reference, OpenELEC works on this same system (separate install), and they're up to 3.14 as well. Never had a problem with OpenELEC and the audio not working.
I installed Debian Squeeze with no issues. I went to install latest Nvidia driver as done previously with Lenny. Used instructions that worked on lenny from "the trooper" [url]
Downloaded th latest driver for my GeForce 7300 GS vidio card, driver package NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run
Used "method # 2 as described in HOW TO,as it worked perfectly in the past on Lenny. Only syntax I changed was instead of gdm I typed gdm3 as it appears that is the new name for gnome in Squeeze.
Did as folows:
Now the trouble showed up, Unfortunatly I can only go off my memory. A question was asked stating that something did not match, it needed a 3 and the driver had a 4 version or somethng of this sort. then it asked if I new what I was doing (and I lied) and selected yes. And whammo, it didn't work. (This question was asked when i did in Lenny and it is working perfectly still on that system). I now can not boot to GUI, I notice when system boots it starts in "S" mode although I select normal boot from grub2.
Not too bad if I got to reinstall as little is on the system. I just want to know what I am missing on the instalation deal or should I be going about this difrently with Squeeze.
Having recently bought a new box (HP Pavilion) I discovered that it is using sata HD and CD/DVD. As there are no specific switches to use when installing to sata drives, I assume that Debian Squeeze is configured to work with sata drives "out of the box", which, in my case, it is failing to do. For the sake of completeness, these are the issues I am encountering, in no order of priority:
* DVD/CD-RW can read data CDs * Can write to DVD and CD using K3B * Can play DVDs that I've burnt * Typing "eject" (no quotes) on the command line will open the drive
But: * Cannot play audio CDs - Rhythmbox is the only application that can. Amarok does, but then doesn't update track lists when a new CD is inserted and I must quit Amarok and restart it for it to pick up the new track lists. KsCD can identify the tracks but does not play an audio CD (even when the config file is changed to point to the drive). Goobox claims "invalid device" even though when using it on the command line I set the "--device==/dev/sr0" (no quotes) to point to the device. When I press the eject button, Goobox seg faults. I have tried a number of other applications, including cdplay, workman, cdcd, and a couple of others the names of which I now forget, some GUI and some command line. None of these have been able to play the audio CD, and many have claimed drive does not exist at all, again, even when manually pointed to it.
* Cannot play pre-recorded (i.e. commercial) DVDs, irrespective of the application used. To make DVDs work, I must go into the folder and double click the correct VIDEO-TS file (*.vob)
These are the specs, taken from dmesg: ata2: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300) [ 2.025513] ata2.00: ATAPI: TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-H653Z, 4403, max UDMA/33 [ 2.041505] ata2.00: configured for UDMA/33 [ 2.049392] scsi 0:0:0:0: Direct-Access ATA WDC WD3200AAJS-6 01.0 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5 [ 2.049891] scsi 1:0:0:0: CD-ROM TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-H653Z 4403 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
This is confirmed by hardinfo and uses a scsi1 controller. The kernel I am using is kernel 2.6.26-2-686 on an AMD Sempron Dual Core 2300 and I am running Squeeze with no other OS. Is this an issue with GNU/Linux generally or with Debian specifically? Interesting, but one Google search showed that Fedora didn't have such a problem but when the user switched to Debian he found a similar issue. I don't think that the drive itself is broken and nor do I think that changing the drive for something else will work, because I'd still have to use the sata connections.
I have recently swapped over to debian (KDE 32bit) from linux mint, however vlc only plays audio, no video (This is for .avi's, .wmv's and rtsp streams, probably others but that what i have available to try). I've installed debian multimedia and dragon player will play .avi's fine, though crashes with .wmv's .
Output if i start play a video vlc through terminal VLC media player 1.1.3 The Luggage (revision exported) Blocked: call to unsetenv("DBUS_ACTIVATION_ADDRESS")
hHey i recently installed Debian Squeeze 64bit over my Ubuntu & Windows, i got everything installed and running including all programs i need without a single problem The one thing i havent been able to do yet is install the Nvidia Driver for Geforce 8800gt, ive searched a few sites but one site is telling you to do this way and the the is telling you to do it another way then people are saying about having errors when xorg updates and stuff.
So i was wanting to know whats the easiest and best way to install the Nvidia Driver package (from nvidia website) onto Squeeze 64bit, i've done it on lenny but cant remember ow
If i get this working then il probaly use Debian as my main OS from now on.
I would like to know which is the default audio system for Squeeze. I'll explain the reason for this question: I had a lenny desktop working like a charm until the hard disk damaged completely. After buying a new desktop computer, I installed Ubuntu 9.10 and I didn't know that the default audio system for Ubuntu was pulseaudio; so I always had problems with skype and my microphone. I remember that with my lenny desktop I never ever had any problem with my sound system and skype.
I've googled for months without finding a consistent fix for this problem in Ubuntu, I've also heard lots and lots of people with the same problem as mine and never solved it; so I decided to get rid of it and install debian Squeeze in my box, but I would like to be sure which is the default audio system for Squeeze, or at least know if anyone have had problems with skype and Squeeze.
