Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Sound Not Working On ATI Sapphire Radeon HD 5450
Jun 22, 2011
I recently installed ubuntu 10.10 on HTPC, after having a few RAM and SATA issues everything seems to be working fine, The audio (using HDMI) does not work. Have PC connected using HDMI for video (and I am hoping for audio too, this card is made for this and it has been tested with other OS) however the audio does not work, although in the audio preferences it shows to be using the correct hardware. Testing for sound under sound preferences does not play anything, acts as it it was, but no sound, no error messages either. I went ahead and installed ATIs proprietary drivers in hopes that it would make the audio work, but not luck so far.
I have Debian WHeezy 7.7 KDE, card Radeon 5000 series. Card has HDMI, video on HDMI working, but sound not working. System see sound device, but if I select this and try to play music then no sound. I tried many things. Below is some lists.
I bought this Radeon 4670 [URL] to improve my video. Although the description on ATI-AMD webpage [URL] specifies that this card can output up to 7.1 audio through HDMI, Sound Controls only shows the stereo and off option. ATI Catalyst does not have any controls for audio. Is there a way to get 5.1 audio enabled? Using 10.04.
After installation of the new hardware I activated the ATI closed source driver. There is an issue with the screens 1st screen, via DVI: I cannot change to the native screen resolution 2nd screen, via VGA: The background of any window is not drawn. Means: I can see lots of parts of other windows after moving or closing them.
Therefore I was searching for an alternative and found the hint to uninstall the ATI driver and use the open source one. After uninstall and reboot (requested by a parallel system update), some boot messages I have no screen output anymore. Means: two black screens. These are going into sleep mode after a few seconds. How can I get a running system again? Optimal would be, that I have full support for both screens. Same happens in failsave mode.
System environment: Ubuntu 10.04 AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+, 4G RAM, motherboard ALiveNF6G-DVI (internal graphic deactivated), ATI Radeon HD 5450
I recently bought a new HD Television, and I wanted to connect it to my laptop, a Gateway NV52 using an HDMI cable. I got the video to work with no issues, but I can't seem to get the audio to work. My soundcard is a Conexant CX20561 and I'm running Ubuntu 10.10.
I have just installed kubuntu 10. My mobo is ASUS p7h55, which hastwo on board sound cards, one for stereo and the other for outputting sound through the hdmi link. When I connect my TV through HDMI, there is no sound. I go to Phonom, and there is only one card in the card selection box.I run aplay -l, and both cards are listed
I have a zotac IONITX motherboard with HDMI video. The video seems fine, but I haven't been able to get the sound working through the HDMI cable. Even the little speaker at the top is gone. It was working fine when I had speakers hooked to the motherboard. I have installed the latest 256 driver from nvidia. If I run 'aplay -l' I get this:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI] Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0 lspci -v gives : 00:08.0 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP79 High Definition Audio (rev b1) Subsystem: PC Partner Limited Device 437b Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 22 Memory at fae78000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K] Capabilities: Kernel driver in use: HDA Intel Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel
I don't know if this is important, but I noticed that it says its running an intel driver for my nvidia sound. Could this be the problem and if so, How do I fix it? Also, if I click on system->preferences->sound it comes up with a dialog box that says that its waiting for the sound system to come up. Why I am not getting any HDMI sound or even the little speaker icon at the top?
I have a Asus EEEBOX EB1012 and everything except the sound is fine. I can use a normal 3,5mm stero plug and get sound, but neither optical och HDMI sound will work. HDMI picture is no problem.I have made sure nothing is muted/not turned on in alsamixerI have tried every "profile" under Sound PreferencesI have tried Alsa upgrade scriptI have tried getting rid of pulseI have tried getting different drivers for the Nvidia cardI have tried Ubuntu 10.04 and 9.10At this point I'm at a loss and don't know what else to do. Has anyone had any luck with HDMI sound on a EB1012 or the ALC662 card?I have several other devices hooked up via HDMI, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC (Windows) and none of them are problematic so I'm pretty sure it's related to the ASUS/Ubuntu somehow.
I'm having a hard time with my hdmi output on my HP G60-128CA laptop to my HDTV.For now I'm getting video only with the Nvidia 173 driver no mater if I'm on 10.04 or 10.10. In the 2 cases, the sound is not passing. Let me add that all the options in sound preferences are available and all the speakers tests i did whit aplay worked ( no error messages), and no muted devices in alsamixer.In all my web searching one thing is strange to me: i didn't find a lot of problems regarding the hdmi display output whit the latest nvidia driver
I am unable to get the hdmi audio for from my graphics card to work. I do not have any speakers to test the other two, and redundant, sound cards .My graphics card is the Nvidia gtx 285, I auto installed the drivers via ubuntu. It does not show up in the hardware tab of "sound preferences". It's not muted, I can't find anything relating to sound in nvidia-settings.but here is my aplay -l:Quote:
I didn't found working driver for my card yet. Using OpenSUSE 11.2 KDE, Motherboard MSI 648F Neo, Pentium4 2.8GHz, 2 x 1GB DDR.I've found, that my card should be supported according to HCL/ATI Video Cards - openSUSEInstallation following ATI drivers - openSUSE Easy Way didn't work because of chcecksum difference (x11-video-fglrxG02), Repositary Way too. Hard Way Installation resulted to disability of Graphic Environment and I wasn't able to fix that (finally, I somehow get running KDE, but Kwin always broke down, so system was unuseful).
I also tried packages found by Software search (Software.openSUSE.org), so package 'xorg-x11-driver-video-radeonhd' but nothing works for me, some of them provide result of "glxingo | grep direct" -> "No", some of them "Yes", but in this case I wasn't able to run "glxgears", because of error "drmRadeonCmdBuffer: -22. Kernel failed to parse or rejected command stream. See dmesg for more info." Desktop Effects I cannot run anyway. how to get graphic acceleration working. It will be great if is here someone with exactly same, or similar card, he could write a step-by-step guide to do that. Starting with fresh installation of OpenSUSE (not corrupted by my previous tries) is not problem.
Just purchased and installed an ATI Radeon HD 5450 graphics card and installed the proprietary drivers via System > Administration > Hardware Drivers. After rebooting the machine X would not load so I restarted into recovery and removed my xorg.conf. At this point I could restart normally and the machine would let me into X. I went to System > Preferences > ATI Catalyst Control Center to try and configure the card.
I receive the following message: There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linux edition. It could be caused by the following. No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI Driver is not functioning properly. Please install the ATI driver appropriate for your ATI hardware, or configure using aticonfig.
So, I did just that, I restored my backup xorg.conf (configured for nvidia card) and executed 'sudo aticonfig --initial', it made the proper changes and additions to the configuration file and this is what it looks like [view xorg.conf]. I then restarted the machine and X still refuses to begin [view Xorg.0.log]. Again, I went in removed the xorg.conf file and the machine will load normally. I tried running fglrxinfo to try and see if the card was properly installed and it just threw a segmentation fault.
i got a dell computer running ubuntu. it is equipped with an ATI radeon 5450, using a dell IN2010 1600x900 screen. when i installed ubuntu, the resolution was just fine. then i installed the ATI driver, and from that moment on, i have that strange behaviour: when i start ubuntu, the resolution seems set to 1440x900, but stretched to wide-screen mode, so the font is somehow blurry. when i turn the monitor off and then on again, everything is just fine.i have catalyst control center installed, and the resolution is set to 1600x900, but i still have the problem that i described.
Few week back I downloaded this driver ati-driver-installer-10-12-x86.x86_64 from AMD/ATI. Everything when ok then I decided to reboot f@@@@K the system up kept rebooting all the time so I did a fresh install again and downloaded the Driver again but this time I need QA. Is this driver will solve my issue of Accelerated 3D graphics is not available? Will this mess everything up again? If so how can I recover without having to do a fresh install?
Installed Ubuntu 10.10 on fresh HP dm4-1050so laptop and encountered problems, this is one of them. Noticed that ATI card is heating heavely with default installation and I would like disable it and switch to use Intel's GMA. Also tested ATI proprietary fglrx driver through Administration->Additional Drivers, after booting got empty screen so I switched back. Afterwards read from documentation that 5450 is not supported, so no wonder. So what is the simplest way of disabling ATI and using only Intel's gma? Here's what I got with lspci -v:
Code: 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 1469 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 45 Memory at c0000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]
I recently bought 1GB video card of 'xfx radeon hd 5450'. It came with cd for drivers of windows. I installed fglrx. Still in ubuntu 10.10 (lucid) I ran: lspci -v | grep -i prefetchable which shows 256M which is video memory of my ASUS motherboard.
I want my computer to be used as a DVD/BD player, and as of recently it has rejected its windows install and refuses to reinstall. Ubuntu 9.10 installed without problem, but when I select the X1200 (hdmi) audio output via the top right icon no sound comes out. I've searched this topic and one theory was that if i ran ALSA mixer the x1200 audio might be muted by default; it was not muted. I've also been told to update my catalyst, but using synaptics packet manager to download the catalyst control center, when I run it I get the message no supported hardware found. Is there any way to get this to work, or am I stuck with my speakers/3.5mm jack?
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 have a Dell Optiplex GX280 with an ATI Radeon 3470 HDMI card. I'd like to install Ubuntu on this computer, and I'd like to use my Olevia HDTV as a monitor and use it as a media computer. I attach the tv to the computer via HDMI, and boot to the Ubuntu install disk - I'm presented with an 'Invalid Format' error message, and no video on the tv. Is there any way around this error so I can continue the install?
I upgrade from F14 to F15 and at first everything seemed fine, but now I noticed that sound output over HDMI to my TV is no longer working (this worked fine under F14). the hardware in this case is the onboard sound card of my ASUS M3N-H/HDMI motherboard:
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10. Everything is working fine except I have no sound. When I use the command 'aplay -D hw:0,0 somefile.wav', I can get sound through headphones attached to the headphone jack. But I can't get any sound through the speakers. This is a dual boot desktop and the sound works fine under Windows, so no problems with hardware. The PC monitor is connected through a hdmi cable and I would need sound through the speakers. The output of alsa-info.sh is at
I recently purchased a new video card a GeForce 550 Ti, but I haven't been able to get sound working over HDMI.
I'm running the latest version of Ubuntu (11.04) and have installed the proprietary drivers through Additional Drivers.
The card is being picked up by alsa and I've configured Ubuntu to use HDMI in sound preferences:
When I check alsamixer this is what I see:
ALSA reports that version 1.0.23 is installed, although I thought 11.04 came with version 1.0.24?
I've tried purging ALSA and reinstalling it but it didn't help. Is there anything I can do? Does anyone know if this card is supported by ALSA properly yet? I hate the thought of having to go to Windows to get this working
i have just recently switched back to Ubuntu and im trying to run my sound through my tv which is connected through my computer using a hdmi cable thats plugged into my EVGA Nvidia GeForce 210 video card ... i have my computer monitor set up as my main screen but i have my tv set up as separate X screen so i can drag over a movie and watch it on the big tv screen and still do things on my monitor ... when i was running windows i was able to get the sound to play through my tv just as i am tryin to do now... does anyone know how i can do this on Ubuntu 10.04
I am having trouble getting sound over hdmi with my Nvidia MCP7A HDMI. The strange thing is that everything works fine in a Live disc, but once I do a fresh install of that Live disc I get no sound, even though my configuration is exactly the same (as far as I can tell). I've checked the little things like alsamixer volumes, aplay -l, etc etc. Everything looks good to me. I can reproduce on multiple TVs so its not the receiver. Video drivers are the same in both live version and installed. aplay -l detects my device. sound/pci/hda/patch_nvhdmi.c already has my correct vendor id in it. Perhaps the following info can figure out what my installed environment is lacking.
I can't get HDMI sound reliably when using Ubuntu. The strange thing is, if I repeatedly reboot the computer, eventually the sound will work. This can take anything up to 10 reboots. Once working, it will keep on working as long as the machine is not rebooted or shut down. HDMI sound works fine under Windows.
aplay -l will only list the Intel (analogue and S/PDIF) hardware, not the Nvidia, even when it is working. Selecting between analogue and digital output under Sound Preferences has no effect on the HDMI either way.
Video is ok, but never any sound. I went through and made sure the HDMI is selected as the audio device and I upgraded to the latest driver binary.
HDMI sound works without the ATI proprietary driver installed, but the needed resolution is not available and the picture overlaps the edges on my 32" LCD. At least I know it is not a hardware issue. ALSA is loaded and selected as the sound manager, but the volume controls don't appear in the ALSA slider console.
I tested the cable and display on another computer. I am using a new Gigabyte GA-MA78LM-SH2, it is the integrated video.
I was hoping that upgrading to 10.04 would fix my problems with sound and HDMI but alas it doesn't. I have an HP dv7 that I wish connect via an HDMI cable to my HDTV and play things like Hulu, Boxee, etc. with the sound coming out of my home theater system. I know that the hardware is capable of doing this because I have Windows 7 installed in a dual boot and it has no problems with pumping sound down the HDMI channel.
I've upgraded to Alsa 1.0.23 freshly compiled. With 1.0.23 I see HDMI settings in Pulse Audio Volume Control. However if I start say VLC and play a video, check pavucontrol and make sure the Playback is set to the HDMI channel. I can hook up the HDMI cable and I can see the video playing - but no audio. I've been in and out of all kinds of things like alsamixer, gnome-alsamixer, sound preferences, etc. and I've toggled things on and off in an attempt to get HDMI sound working but nothing works.
In alsamixer if I hit f6 I see my 0 card as HDA Intel and my 1 card as NDA NVidia. If I select NVidia I see only S/PDIF, S/PDIF 1, S/PDIF 2, S/PDIF 3. I can only mute or unmute these. I've tried both - nothing works. Let me know what sort of output/info you need and I'll post it. Here's some info I've seen others post:
