Ubuntu Multimedia :: No HDMI Output On 11.04 NVidia GeForce GTX 465?
Jul 30, 2011
I've seen a lot of threads on this issue and combed through most of them trying to diagnose my problem and I've gotten REALLY close but with no complete success yet.I have a nVidia GeForce GTX 465 and I'm running HDMI out to my monitor. I have video but no audio. I can see the device in the Hardware tab of Sound Preferences but for the life of me I can't get it to play any audio (aside from testing with white noise).Output from aplay -l:

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.
I have noticed that, using nvidia's latest drivers, HDMi output to my 32" LCD (1920x1080) and totem or vlc, the video on my LCD gets a bit "choppy" when the image changes faster.. some bars start appearing on the moving parts of the image.. like the system is having trouble rendering the video. This doesn't happen on my laptop screen even when both displays are running at the same time.
Also, this problem doesn't appear in windows 7, everything works perfectly there with one odd thing... the picture gets "choppy" on the laptop screen when I'm running both at the same time. It's not that noticeable, but I can tell the difference between windows and ubuntu in quality and it's annoying me
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 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
Running 10.10 and win 7 on my HP dv6-2150us laptop and I'm having a few issues.
First how do I get HDMI audio output to my TV? I think I have just a integrated Intel graphics card. It works fine in windows but I can't seem to get it to work in Ubuntu. I tried searching but couldn't find anything pertaining to this issue.
My graphic output is not that nice. How do I find out what kind of driver Centos is using? Can I fine-tune its performance? I tried to install the driver(NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1) from NVIDIA website but it failed. I got the following log file.

I work at a television station and we recently purchased a System76 Meerkat ION with the intended purpose of using the HDMI out port for broadcast purposes. We have an existing AJA HA5 box which is capable of converting HDMI to HD-SDI (HD-SDI being the baseband standard in professional broadcasting).
The converter is only willing to accept the following values:
1920 x 1080 @ 29.97 1280 x 720 @ 59.94
I am wondering if it is possible to manually configure Xorg.conf (or whatever file is being edited by NVIDIA X Server Settings) to tell the HDMI output to only produce the latter resolution (1280 x 720).
im running ubutu 9.10 with the standard nvida proprietry drivers as a media center. the output is over hdmi, through a a/v reciver and onto a lcd television. my proble mis that the output is too large for the screen even whan outputting at a smaller resoultion than the native resolution of the television. this means that the top, bottom, left and right of the output is chopped off. in windows i can adjust the size of the output useing some sliders to get the image to fit the screen. however these are only available in the windows drivers and i cannot find a substitute in the ubuntu ones. one way of doing it may be to output black bard at the sides of the screen but i have no idea how to do this.
Hardware: HP dv3505ea laptop Ubuntu: 10.04 LTS uname -a: Linux adventure 2.6.32-28-generic #55-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jan 10 23:42:43 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux HDTV: Panasonic TX-L37D28BSA
I'm having trouble getting any output from my laptop's HDMI socket. I've had a search and can only find sound problems, mine is no visible output whatsoever.
Let me describe the setup: Laptop has a HDMI socket which I have never used before, HDTV has 4 HDMI inputs, I just bought a HDMI cable to connect the two to try it.
After connection I go to System->Preferences->Monitors and the TV is detected fine with the correct description and offers me 3 different resolutions. xrandr also works and gives me the same thing:
However none of the options display ANYTHING on the TV. The screen remains black, not even a flicker.
I have connected the laptop to the TV before using an analogue VGA (monitor) cable which worked in the same way with no problems.
Could this be an encryption/DRM/DVI problem? I have suspicions about the cable too because it is new and I haven't seen it work, but it wouldn't detect the correct TV description and resolutions would it? It was sold as an XBOX360/PS3 HDMI cable, is there a difference? It looks like a standard HDMI male-male cable.
Other things I've tried: Log off and log back on to restart the X server reboot
I recently switched from my integrated GPU (i5-650 Clarkdale) to a brand new nvidia GT520 but now my HDMI output is worse than my VGA : bright colors are completely saturated. I noticed that switching the HDMI colorspace from "full" to "limited" (using nvidia-settings) somewhat reduce the effects but doesn't solve it. I even tried to play with my monitor setting, with no luck. This was NOT the case previously. I'm using the latest nvidia-drivers and my 2 monitors are the same reference (LG 22" LCD - W2261VP-PF). Ubuntu 11.04.
I have an Okano 42" LCD TV, which I connect to my laptop via HDMI cable. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit the screen at the TV's resolution of 1920x1080, and there are about 40 pixels that run over the edge of each side on the TV, making the Ubuntu toolbars invisible.The standard NVIDIA control panel doesn't have any options for correcting this (in windows it had settings for adjusting the stretch/position of the screen), so I was wondering whether there are any common tools that ubuntu users can use to adjust the relative position and stretch of a screen?
BTW I think the cause of this is that my dodgy TV isn't correctly reporting its resolution to the laptop, and unlike most branded TVs, I don't have any system settings that can be adjusted to correct this (I know the panasonic counterpart can fix this in the system menu)..
I cannot get the restricted Nvidia drivers or the Nouveau drivers to work completely. If the Nouveau drivers are being used (after an "apt-get purge nvidia-*"), the text mode seems to work ok, but the X nouveau driver acts as if it cannot recognize the card. The only way I can get into X is to make sure I have the "nv" driver in the xorg.conf. I can then get into X normally.
If I install nvidia-current, the machine will just lock up at the splash screen. The Xorg.0.log file is zero bytes. I've checked and installing nvidia-current properly blacklists the nouveau drivers and I see no evidence in the messages file that the nouveau drivers tried to load in text mode. In fact, it shows the nvidia driver loading for console mode. I've tried the nouveau.modeset=0 kernel option as well, but that doesn't do anything. This is a fairly new nvidia card, maybe only a couple months old. I think it's been out for quite some time though. But it was working fine under Karmic with the restricted drivers. I really want to get this working as I need full support of the video card.
I recently got a new ATI HD 4890 graphics card that supports sound over HDMI. It works in my other OS (Windows 7) but I cannot get it to work in Xubuntu. I read somewhere that by default the open source drivers have HDMI sound disabled. How do I turn it on? I even tried the Comprehensive Sound Problems Solutions Guide and still have no sound.
I have a 64 bit computer with a 64 bit distribution of Ubuntu. The driver for the onboard video card wasn't supported beyond 8.04, so I didn't upgrade. Yesterday, I bought a NVIDIA GeForce 210 video card. I installed it and Ubuntu detected it and worked, but the resolution was limited to 640x480 (I think). I figured this would be corrected by updating, so I updated to 9.04. When I had to restart, the option to select which OS (Linux or Win) came up, I selected 9.04, and the ubuntu symbol came on. The status bar went to the end and the screen turned black, flickered 5 times, turned black and stopped progressing. The xorg.conf file is:
I have thrown together a frankenstein of spare parts to stream video onto my TV. The GPU is a NX6800GS (geforce 6800). I have used the restricted driver tool to intsal the recommended driver. The VGA output works fine. My problem is that when using the nvidia tool to set up my TV through S-Video on the graphics card, the TV is not detected. This puts me at a dead end, as every how to guide on this forum assumes the nvidia control panel can detect the TV. Can i force video to play over the S-Video port? Do i need some magical unicorn drivers for the card? Any help is appreciated (even a simple "this setup will never work").
I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Emachine Er1402-05, Wireless works fine, but not the grahics Emachine Er1402-05 has a nVidia GeForce 8200 graphics card. The problem is that after installation it only support resolution upto 1024x768, while my LCD has native resolution at 1600x900. I have installed the most recent nvidia driver $sudo apt-get install nvidia-current However, I was not able to config it:
$ sudo nvidia-xconfig sudo: nvidia-xconfig: command not found
I was not able to install the package.
$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-xconfig Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package nvidia-xconfig
I'm having trouble getting 1080p out my xfx 9800gt that has an onboard hdmi socket. No doubt my HDTV is 1080p (panasonic TH-427PZ70B a few years old now), and it will do and has run at 1080p 60hz.
It auto detects the display as simply panasonic-tv and outputs at 1080i. As I've been running mythtv with tv tuners this actually worked quite well as dvb-t is interlaced anyway and most ofthe HD video files I play are 720p. However I would like to run it at 1080p for all the usual reasons- especially as I have some 1080p files I'd like to enjoy in all their glory!!
This doesn't seem to be ubuntu specific as mandriva behaves the same, and makes no difference if I use the open source (default with 9.10), the official nvidia package or as I've just tried 10.04 with default and nvidia.
I've searched around for nvidia hdmi 1080p etc but can't seem to dig up anything useful. Surely I should be able to force the graphics card to output standard 1080p 60hz?
Should I be able to do this through xrandr by setting a modeline or in xorg.conf or nvidia control pannel!?
Im able to detect the monitor on the laptop once connected but the monitor indicates "No Input". I've tried rebooting the computer with the HDMI cable connected with no avail. I have also tried out a host of other solutions offered in different forume with absolutely no change.
I have a HP pavilion dv6 3310si with 32-bit Ubuntu 11.04, an ATI HD Radeon 5600 with latest ATI radeon driver installed and this is my xorg.conf;

I bought an asus U33JC and except for one major issue (frame tear) it works fine out of the box using 11.04 64bit, with some minor issues easily solved (suspend, upside down cam on skype, flash and java). The U33JC has optimus, but also a bios option to disable the Intel GMA. So I could use the on chip Intel GMA or disable it and use the discrete GF310M.
The major issue I have now is poor video playback. Frame tear occurs in every single configuration I tried: Either using the internal Intel GMA, or disabling the Intel via bios option and using the NVidia proprietary drivers or even using bumblebee. This frame tear occurs also on the desktop, but the real problem is that it's very noticeable on video, specially when connecting my HD TV via HDMI. I tested 720p h264 mkv videos and even low res xvid avis in totem and mplayer/Smplayer all equally poor. Using mplayer I tried several vo options, such as xv (intel? xv) and x11, and playback is poor on all of them. Oh, and I don't use compiz (don't care for it). Refresh rate is 60Hz, and should be the right one. It works fine with vlc on the soon to be transformed into free space windows7, but that's not an option for me. I used Ubuntu before on a laptop, but I usually use Gentoo, so I'm not familiar with the ubuntu distro.
The purpose of this laptop was to be my "tv media center" when at home and my work laptop for travelling (13 inch ! ). But it failed miserably on the first count. I'm still using my old celeron based Gentoo laptop with RGB out to my tv for that, still with much better results (it can decode only up to 720p, which is fine). But it is dying! I really don't understand why playback is so poor. Could messing with xconf be the answer?
EDIT: Here's my xorg log. NO VSYNC? Is this right? Please help.

Having some problems with HDMI-Audio on my HTPC: I don't get sound out of HDMI port! For system info look there: Sysprofile
OS is Suse11.3 64Bit with KDE now! At "System-Settings/Multimedia/Audio Output" there are the following devices in the given order: HDA NVidia (ALC662 rev1 Analog) HDA NVidia (ALC662 rev2 Digital) HDA NVidia, NVIDIA HDMI (HDMI Audio)
That's consistent with the connector layout of the mainboard. Playing "Test sound" while marked the HDMI Audio is not causing any output with HDMI, while analog works just fine!
I also installed the nVidia prop drivers with the packet manager. In YAST there is one card found in the sound section:: Idex=0 and Card Model=MCP79 High Definition Audio
I just tried to install KDE in Debian testing on the machine with Nvidia Geforce 7300 GS using Nvidia driver (280.13-1). However KDE breaks when compositing is enabled, and the only way to make it work is to disable compositing. This problem seems to exist for a while already:[URL].. Is it really Nvidia's problem, or something with KDE? Is there a point in contacting Nvidia about it?
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.
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.
script which adjusts my NVIDIA settings to HDMI and also my Audio output to my digital output. I feel its quite a lot of clicking to get my signal to my LCD.So I hope somebody already had this idea and can give me the script or can assist me in writing it myself. I think its not a complicated script. i guess its only 2 lines. But i am not exactly a pro in Ubuntu..So as i said i have a NVIDIA graphic cardand aplay -l shows
