Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia HDMI Audio Not Working
Oct 21, 2010
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...
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 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'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.
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:
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 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 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?
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?
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 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.
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 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
My Compaq Presario F739WM laptop has a Connexant HD Audio/NVidia MCP51 (reported by lspci) sound card.Ubuntu has always supported the card with no problem except the random popping noise but then I found a work around for that.Now for some reason, when I first turn on my computer and at login screen I can hear Ubuntu noises, yet seems once I login, no more sound or sometimes the successfully logged in sound.
The only changes that I have since the sound worked, was I installed pulseaudio but that caused no problems with that. The other change was a few kernel upgrades and other packages through normal update manager.I have checked that snd_hda_intel driver was loaded in the kernel and in alsa, all seems well.Pulse detects audio output in it's meter.I also tested the sound card to make sure it wasn't bad, in Windows 7 (dual boot) and it wokrs perfectly.
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.
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 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 eee Box 1012 which I'm connecting a HDMI cable from it to my Yamaha reciever. When linux boots up and auto login I dont hear any sound.When I run Boxee or Skype I also don't hear any sound. I went to system setting and set the HW to HDMI out but still same resultsI really want this to work.I tried some of this here...I'm using Ubuntu 10.4 a fresh install and have run all patches. I also enabled the NVIDA driver
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).
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 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.
