Debian Hardware :: ATI Radeon HD 3200 HDMI Audio On Wheezy
May 6, 2014
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
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.
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 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 have ATI graphic card with HDMI video and Audio:
I see that I have HDMI connector and S/PDIF connector on the mortherboard, I just have HDMI connector on the monitor, I have no problem with the video but the audio does not work, I just want to confirm that the audio should also go throught the HDMI cable right ?
When the desktop effects are turned on by default, my desktop is rendered upside down, although the task bar stays at the bottom, even though the favorites bar got cropped off by the panel. Here, I'll demonstrate:Desktop is now rendered properly without desktop effects enabled, as a workaround. Removing .kde or renaming .kde to .kdebackup will not fix the problem. Same as for .config.
I want to use the open source radeon driver. My video card is AMD/ATI RADEON HD4850. I want 3D acceleration even if it's inferior to fglrx's although I would like if it exceeded fglrx's performance but the performance of the driver is not the point of this thread. Fortunately, fsck was checking the hard drive upon booting so I had time to write the boot output in this computer which I believe would be of help.
Video card: Failed to load firmware "radeon/RV770_pfp.bin" *ERROR* Failed to load firmware! disabling GPU acceleration
gdm3: rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request firmware. I attempted to install firmware-linux and do sudo gdm3 but all that did is say gdm3 lasted for 0.x seconds where x changes and it kept re-printing that sentence infinitely. I also rebooted and tried to let gdm3 start itself.
Firstly, I'm assuming the open source driver relies on proprietary firmware. Why is this the case? Secondly, how do I get the radeon/RV770_pfp.bin firmware? Is it not in the firmware-linux package? Why does it matter that GPU acceleration is disabled for loading gdm3? Isn't simple 2D enough? (I'm not saying this because I don't want to have 3D enabled since I do want it enabled but because I would imagine that 2D capabilities are enough to load gdm3). If more information is needed, just ask.
I need some help installing the driver. I am very noob. so when I try to build a deb file with sh ati-driver-installer-11-5-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Debian/testing

I have an Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG. I'm running Wheezy and I can't seem to get switcheroo working correctly. I was running Squeeze, then upgraded to Wheezy because it had a kernel over 2.6.33 with switcheroo built in. Below is the layout of my build...
(~)$ uname -a Linux skipjack-debian 2.6.38-2-686 #1 SMP Thu Apr 7 05:24:21 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux (~)$ lspci | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 18) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Redwood [Radeon HD 5600 Series]
I have wheezy up to date and the xserver-xorg-video-radeon package is at version 6.14.2-1. I am using the linux-image-2.6.39-2-amd64 package as well for the kernel. When I boot, it stays on the tty1 console and I can't start gdm3 manually (it also doesn't start automatically).
I have a LMDE (Mint Linux Edition based on testing, now Wheezy) i386 that I just did a dist-upgrade on and now it isn't properly detecting my monitor resolution. I have two 1680x1050 monitors, one attached to the DVI and another to a VGA video switch. When I rebooted to the new 2.6.38-2-686 kernel both monitors were giving me 1024x768. I futzed around for a while and could then get the the DVI monitor to correctly identify the proper resolution, but the VGA monitor resolutely refused to see more than 1024x768.
I was able to get the proper resolution by entering these commands:
Should I file a bug report, and if so, with whom? I have to say, the Debian bug report process is not too newbie (or even not-so-newbie) friendly, but I'd like to help if it doesn't require me to hand-configure a MUA.
Also, I suppose I shouldn't mention it in a single post, but my mouse is behaving rather unpredictably now (click speed, selecting), and trying to reboot dismounts the file system and then starts up again giving me my display manager (in my case KDM), without restarting the system (both from "sudo reboot" and trying to restart with KDM or the Gnome widget). If I really want to restart the system I have to halt it first and hit the power button.
Yesterday I downloaded and installed Wheezy 64 from the most recent debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso (as of yesterday) on my new Zacate-based MSI E350IS-E45 (MS-7698) AMD E-350 ITX motherboard. I figured I needed something recent to support a very new chipset, I don't think Squeeze was even stable when this chipset came out.
Everything seemed to go smoothly, I was asked for the firmware tarball, but I guess I hit the wrong button and the installing just continued. Everything set up OK, it seemed, but I didn't have speakers or headphones on the system. I didn't appear to need the firmware-linux package, the networking was working, radeon was providing proper screen resolution, if kind of crummy performance (Desktop Effects wouldn't work in KDE, for instance, and 1080p won't play, though it does better than in Ubuntu).
But as I was configuring some program it complained about no sound output, I didn't make much of a note of it, I figured it was just some muted mixer, or such, I haven't had many problems with Linux audio before (except getting spdif to work, but I didn't need that here). But I started noodling around and sound was just not working.
So I installed the the firmware-linux & firmware-realtek packages, no effect (actually, not quite true, my ethernet speed seemed to increase). Then I tried the Liquorix 2.6.38-6.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64 kernel, no joy. Attempting to "insmod" various snd modules just gives me "No such file or directory"
At this point I don't know what to do. I guess I could try "upgrading" to sid and hope for the best. Or I could uninstall all of pulseaudio, which I know has been very problematic for a lot of people. I could even try to purge and reinstall a bunch of alsa packages:
I suppose I could try to go to the alsa web site and download & install its driver, lib & utils. I'm really hoping it won't come to that, sound should really work out of the box. Or I could just wait and hope a future upgrade sorts out the sound.
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".
Installed Wheezy. Audio players either stop with an error message about no sound, or they quietly play silence. Tried with gui and comand-line versions.
Mucking about with lspci indicates that I have two sound cards. News to me. I try "lspci | grep -i audio" and get 00:03.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Haswell HD Audio Controller (rev 06) 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Lynx Point High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)
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:
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 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?
So, I need to use the HDMI out on my Radeon 57xx because the DVI input on my monitor is in use by another machine that has no other way to connect to it, and I won't swap cables around all the time. Of course, because someone somewhere decided that if it's plugged in to HDMI it must be a TV and have overscan issues I have a nice black box surrounding my screen image.
In Windows I can resolve this by opening CCC and changing the overdrive settings. Thus far I have yet to be able to get CCC to open and the only thing the console tool allows you to do is toggle overscan on and off, which doesn't seem to have any effect so far. Has anyone gotten this issue resolved? Do I need to focus on getting CCC working (which I probably won't use for anything else...) or is there a console command that can handle the job? Change to xorg.conf? Anything?
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.
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 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 big fan of Ubuntu and presently doing a lot of research on switching over to Ubuntu from Windows environment.
First things first My desktop basic hardware specs Motherboard: GIGABYTE MA790XT-UD4P CPU: AMD PHENON 545 GPU: NVIDIA GT240 (1GB) RAM: 4GB POWER: 650W HDD: 1TB
I am using Win 7 64bit and installed Ubuntu 10.10 64bit Ubuntu installation went smooth and it got updated...
Everything is fine except couple of things
1. No audio output from HDMI.
2. No Multitasking.
I will elaborate the above issues
1. My comp display is my LCD TV which is connected by HDMI cable, usually I get sound from TV speakers when I use Win 7, however in Ubuntu there is option to select the sound output by HDMI but even though after selecting nothing happens...
2. Whenever I am to listen to music in Ubuntu and if I am doing some other work like copying files or opening multiple files or burning DVD's, music gets stuck or it plays pause by pause...so multitasking problems...
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 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
I've got a new machine with an Nvidia GeForce 210 graphics card with HDMI output. I'm trying to get sound to go out that HDMI cable, but although the device shows up on lspci, I can't get it acknowledged by aplay -l, which lists the audio devices known to the audio driver.
lspci shows (in part): 00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)01:00.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1) The first is the motherboard audio, and it works fine. The second (I assume) is the graphics card with HDMI. But aplay -l lists only the motherboard analog and S/PDIF outputs:
I can't see how I'm going to select a device that the drivers think isn't there. how to make that device visible to the sound drivers? I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 with a 2.6.32 stock kernel. The Nvidia driver version is 195.36.24.
