Ubuntu Multimedia :: Zotac HD-ID11 - HDMI No DIGITAL Audio
Jan 2, 2011
I still can not get HDMI audio workign on my zotac.. there is a lot of post that talk about it here but i can not seam to get any of them to work, and may are pre mavrick...
I made a sim post a while back about ubuntu but no one replied....
I am no truing xubuntu but still no luck
Like there is this post but it is from 2009... so all the inputs are wrong.. [URL]
I am using a fresh install of xubuntu off the official desktop ISO from the xubuntu site. All i have done is install, activate the NVIDIA hardware drivers, reboot, then download and apply the 150 or so updates though the update manager.
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.23.
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
- I had Ubuntu 10.04 and got audio trough HDMI after applying this : AlsaUpgrade - I migrated to Ubuntu 10.10
During the process I was asked "do you want to replace this alsa* file" I said Yes After the migration I had alsa 1.0.23 and the aplay -l showed the proper sounds cards. using "aplay -Dplughw:X,Y -fcd /mySound.wav" When X, Y was 0,0 I had sound though analog When X was 1 and Y was 3, 7, 8, 9 had no sound though hdmi.
I recently put together a small computer on which I'm running Ubuntu 10.04. The plan here was to test the motherboard out for use in a HTPC running linux, and using smplayer and vdpau (not exactly sure if that's the way to say it), I'm running video just fine out of my HDMI cable, but I'm not having any luck getting any audio.
My motherboard is one of those Zotac Ion Itx G-E with an NVidia Geforece 9400 thingamajig. Customer reviews on New Egg said it handled Linux and Mythbuntu well, and that was my reason for making this purchase. When I recieved my motherboard, I loaded Ubuntu as the instructions said I should, and then I attempted to load the disc with the drivers and that failed. Apparently, the disc was designed to run in Windows. I downloaded drivers from the Zotac website which were supposedly designed for linux, however I haven't had any luck installing these. The terminal keeps saying I need the installer.
I am not sure what to do about my problem so I am making a post. I will point out that I am kind of new to linux, but I understand the basics of command line operation and such, which is why i didnt post this in the beginners forum. I bought a Zotaz Zbox SD-ID12-U, linked below, and am having annoying troubles with the HDMI connection to my TV.[URL]...I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 via USB DVD player -- everything seems to be working except for this. The issue is that through HDMI at 720p it over-scans about 20 pixels on all four sides of the tv screen. In the "Monitor Preferences" it lists only 3 resolution options, all of which have the same overscan issue:
1280x720(16:9) 800x600 (4:3) 640:480(4:3)
The device has an Intel GMA 3150 on it and when I run "lspci | grep VGA" the output is:00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation N10 Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) This problem does not exist when I use a VGA cable, which scales the screen properly for a variety of resolutions. I prefer to use HDMI so I would like to resolve this issue. I have looked through the forums but am kind of overwhelmed with this stuff and really dont know where to begin.
how to have alsa convert a digital sound stream to analogue before it is sent to the hdmi out? I would like to modify asound.conf. I do not have gnome as a desktop so I need to manually input the changes to asound.conf. The reason I ask is. I have sound going out of my acer revo to both spdif and hdmi. The spdif goes to my receiver and I want digital passthrough for that. The hdmi goes to my tv and I need it to be analouge before it gets to the tv. Right now, I get passthrough to both the spdif and hdmi. (the tv is all static) I want to have alsa convert the signal for the hdmi output only.
I've done a search on google and on here regarding my issue and I couldn't see anything.
I have the following audio device;
Code: 00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2) At the moment I have it playing through Analog Stereo Output. (See attached image)
The sound is mostly flawless and I haven't been having troubles with it.
But, because I play audio through my logitech speakers (2 speakers, 1 subwoofer) I should be able to get digital stereo sound shouldn't I?
From the drop down box of the attached image there are two options for Digital Stereo;
Digital Stereo Duplex IEC958 Digital Stereo IEC958 Output + Analog Stereo Input
None of them work for me. Even if I do a restart, I get no sound from Rhythmbox or Firefox.
I use the pulseaudio sound server and I have the PulseAudio device chooser installed. When I had the Digital Stereo Duplex IEC958 selected I used the Volume Meter playback to see if there was any sound coming through. Both left and right showed activity but nothing came through the speakers.
I have been trying for a while now to get the audio over HDMI working from my PNY G210 graphics card and mythtv but with no luck.
I have followed this guide [URL]
prior to following this I only had my motherboards on board audio showing up but I am now at the stage that I can see the HDMI audio and select it and un mute it but still cannot get any sound out of it.
As a side effect after following the steps from the link above, now every time I boot the computer up my on board audio is muted so I need to un mute it from sound preferences.
This is my audio config as it stands: scott@MythtvFrontend:~$ aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: AD198x Analog [AD198x Analog] Subdevices: 1/1
The mother board is a an ASUS MN32-SLI deluxe and I have 2 graphics cards in it, a 9600GT to run the 2 monitors connected and a G210 which I would like to use to connect to my TV using the HDMI output. At the moment I am using the VGA output from the G210 to the TV and a separate audio out from the computer which was working fine but the audio is now always muted on startup.
I don't think it is an issue with my mythtv settings as I cannot get any audio over the HDMI using speaker-test (on board analogue audio works ok).
After some fudging around, I managed to get my 64-bit karmic install to output sound digitally to my amplifier. So far, so good. The amplifier indicates a sample rate of 44.1KHz, while it is capable of 48KHz (higher sample rate would be better, i assume). Also, more annoying, it indicates no signal when no applications are producing sounds, causing it to miss the first second of output when I unpause my music. Windows 7 outputs everything as 48KHz, apparently also outputting silence as the light doesn't blink when i pause a media player.
The question then being: How do I override the default sample rate of digital audio output (if this is even possible, googling suggested that this might be overridden by applications); How do I make my sound driver output silence when no application is outputting sound.

I've been googling and searching these forums and I can't find a fix. I just discovered that I have a headphone jack on the bottom of my monitor and it would be a lot more convenient to use that rather than the jack on my tower. However, when I switch to HDMI audio output I don't hear anything. I now it's not my cable because it works on my HDTV and throughput audio fine.
I have Ubuntu 9.10 with the Asus M4A78T-E mobo with integrated ATI HD 3300 graphics. I am running the official drivers from ATI, ATI Catalyst 10.3 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver, the latest and greatest, not the one from Synaptic. I know this is a bad time to be looking for a fix since 10.4 is out in 8 days but if anyone knows a quick fix that would be great.
I currently installed ubuntu 10.04 and I am having trouble getting sound from my monitor. The monitor that I have is a HANNS-G HH251. It is connected to a Sapphire 4850 Video card through a HDMI wire. The monitor has audio when I boot it in windows7, but there is no audio when I use ubuntu 10.04.
I am running 10.04 with an integrated Radeon HD3200 card. When I set up the tv through hdmi, the sound works perfectly; however, when I switch to analog audio to play something else, the next time I try to use hdmi audio I get nothing. It shows to have good level through Pulse Audio Volume Control - shows like there is a sound coming through it, but I get no audio through the tv. The only way I can fix this is by uninstalling proprietary drivers and reverting back to generic configuration and then reinstalling proprietary drivers. I have to revert back to generic in order to get the sound working again.
I have a dell 1525 laptop with ubuntu 10.10 . Just made the switch from win vista . Everything seems to be perfect, wireless, video, ect. However no audio on my onboard hdmi port. The video is displayed perfect runs very smooth. This could be my lack of knowledge on ubuntu just not understanding what settings to change maybe no driver for the hdmi audio. I would like to add that the laptop onboard speakers work fine.
I have an ECS A785GM-M and the integrated HD4200 HDMI audio was working out of the box on a clean Ubuntu 10.04 install. After the updates and all, everything still worked just fine for a month.
Then, I installed a HD4870 with ATI DVI to HDMI adapter and the sound is not working (it works flawlessly on Windows 7, so it is not the hardware). The creepy stuff is that on Pulseaudio GUI configuration, everything looks right: ATI 48x0 HDMI is selected as output and when some sound is playing the bar moves, although there is no sound coming from the TV speakers.
I tried editing /etc/pulse/default.pa as suggested on this link, but it didn't helped. I'm kind lost here, since it looks that there is nothing wrong and yet, it is not working.
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 have recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 64bit. After normal install process, it invited me to install ATI proprietary drivers (because I have an ATI Radeon HD4850 video card). Everything seems to work out of the box, except the HDMI sound. The HDMI video works OK, and also the normal sound using the onboard soundcard work OK. By my knowledge I think I have setup the audio properties correctly. Some screen-shots attached. What happens when I switch the output to HDMI is no audio signal on the TV. The HDMI works OK (both sound and video) on my Win7 64 bit install.
I was running Ubuntu 9.04 and just upgraded to 9.10 recently. I see many others are having problems with their sound. I too do not have sound. I did get sound running briefly with an Alsa update, but it was muffled. In trying many other fixes, I again have no sound and can not resolve it. I am thinking of burning a new cd and doing a fresh install and starting over.
My lap top is an MSI GT725 US model with an HD4850 mobility graphics card. I dual boot between Vista 32 bit and Ubuntu.
Has anyone else had any luck getting the Realtek ATI sound working in 9.10?
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?
I'm trying to set up a new HTPC and can't get sound to work over HDMI. If I set System > Preferences > Sound > Hardware and set the profile to Analog Stereo Duplex, I get sound from the speaker port just fine.However if I set the profile to Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output I get nothing on my TV. I'm using 10.04 LTS.Some data:

Ok, so let me first start off by saying I'm a linux noob. I feel no shame. I've been working on trying to solve my issue for a few days now and after much research I am still no better off. But I am able to at least narrow down my problem. The long and short of it is that my HDMI audio device is not showing up in Ubuntu 10.4 x64 edition. Let me give a few specs.
Motherboard: ASROCK 785GMH/128 Onboard video: ATI Radeon HD 4200 Onboard audio: VIA VT1708S OS: Ubuntu 10.4 x64 Alsa drivers: alsa-driver-1.0.23 ATI Drivers: ATI Catalyst 10.6
Running the latest version of ALSA and ATI's proprietary linux drivers. I can see all outputs (including the s/pdif) except the HDMI. From my reading there should be a device listed on a 2nd card called ATI HDA HDMI aplay -l returns the following result:
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 a few days ago and HDMI audio worked out of the box (with the nVidia drivers enabled). Today I did a system update and (among other problems) there is no more sound coming over HDMI. I'm not really sure what to do to diagnose this problem... where would I start?
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...
Recently I installed Ubuntu 10.10 64bit and I have a problem with it.
I have a motherboard with internal audio card as well as I have ATI 2600 card. When I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 sound via motherboard worked perfectly.
But some time later it disappeared. Actually "Output device" that represents audio card disappeared. See screenshot of the Audio Settings dialog.
I made 2 thing - most likely that one of them cause this problem: - I tried to setup Panasonic Plasma TV as a second monitor via HDMI output of my video card (ATI 2600). - I added maven-backports repository (new kernel or new audio driver?)
Have anybody seen this problem? Are any pointers how to fix it? If you need any additional info - let me know I'll be glad to provide it.
I've recently encountered a sound issue and I recently installed the nvidia gt220 in my box and was thrilled at how well it worked with hdmi until I tried to use the audio. I updated my alsa and went into the alsamixer and it does detect my gt220. I unmuted all spdif and tested the sound and with success the sound test works. I know the card and device numbers that work with the audio but now sure where to make changes so it will default to that device instead of the onboard audio that it seems to try to use now. I am running lucid 10.04.
I have been pining over and over through 100s of forum posts to no avail. My problem is that my audio through HDMI does not work fully. I upgraded to 1.0.23 alsa release, which seemed to help, but I cant get anything besides 'Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output' from System-Preferences-Sound. Maybe this is normal, and I will have to rely on xbmc, etc. to provide 5.1 surround sound?
