Fedora Hardware :: HDMI Sound Not Working After Upgrade To F15?
Jun 3, 2011
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 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 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.
My audio worked completely perfectly running Fedora 14. I upgraded to Fedora 15 and discovered my audio no longer worked. As far as I know I didn't change anything. I do hear random pops and clicks from my speakers every few seconds. It's a bummer because this worked out of the box on Fedora 14 without any screwing around, and now it's totally broken in fedora 15. Everything else about my upgrade has been going pretty well, but life without sound is not nearly as fun and it's frustrating to have something not work that used to work just fine.
Here is some information and things I've tried:
- Just for grins I booted from the Fedora 15 live CD and observe the exact same issue as I see when I boot from my HD (just pops and clicks out of the audio.) - motherboard: ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 (using onboard audio) - lspci reports: 00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) (rev 40) - cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 | grep -i codec reports: Codec: Realtek ALC892 (this is what the motherboard manual lists as the audio hardware.) - I've run pavumeter as some have suggested and I see outputs on both left/right channels when audio is playing (but still hear nothing but clicks and pops.) - I've run "alsamixer -c 0" and verified all my levels are maxed out. - I've opened up the sound settings dialog box and made sure the correct hardware device is selected, tried different profiles, tested left/right speakers, still no progress at all. - I know I have the speakers on and plugged into the correct output jack, but just for fun I tried plugging the speakers into each of the other possible jacks, but that didn't help.
I am currently using an Nvidia GTX 460 gpu, but I just cant get the sound to output to my monitor through the hdmi. I can see that there is sound coming out when running pavucontrol. And I've looked at other guides and no luck. Here is the link to all of my alsa info If you need any more info just let me know,
I do realize, that there are a lot of other threads regarding this problem. I've spent almost the whole day today reading and trying them out, and at the end, I figured out, that none of them worked for me. So, I'll provide as much info as possible... code...
Unfortunately, none of this worked, and even after the first 2 methods I didn't have ANY sound at all! Please help me, I need this in order to have my speakers plugged into the monitor, so I can control the volume via the remote control. In order to dissolve any suspections to a defect hardware, I'd like to add, that this is perfectly working under Windows 7, 64-bit edition.
I have a Laptop with Fedora 15, with an NVidia graphic card, when I attach my TV screen as secondary screen using the HDMI cable video works perfectly, but sound comes only from my laptop's integrated speakers; if I open Pulse configuration and set to "HDMI output" profile, no sound comes from either the TV set or my laptop's speakers.
I've tried checking the .conf file, updating NVidia drivers, and anything that I have read in this forum but I still have no sound from the TV set when I use the HDMI cable.
Under Fedora 12, I have installed the proprietary NVIDIA graphics driver successfully and am now attempting to use the onboard HDMI output. (The board has HDMI and VGA out built in.) I am getting a clear picture on the TV screen, although the edge of the screen output hangs off all edges of the physical screen. The HDMI audio output is being detected, but no sound come out of the TV when I switch the sound output from the Analog Sterio Duplex to HDMI Output in the Sound Preferences. Any suggestions, and what further information is required?
I have a newly set up computer with 11.4 64 bit. Intel Core i5, under Sound Configuration in YaST I have '5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio'and 'nVidia Corporation'I have built in speakers in my screen, connected via HDMI. I hear no sound from any source, neither via HDMI, nor via a separate sound cable connected to the sound connector on the back of the computer nor via the head phone jack on the front.
recently installed an NVidia GeForce 240 in my HTPC, and finally got it working correctly (as an HDMI-out display) n Lucid Lynx 64-bit.My problem now is that there is no sound, even though sound should be passing through, and I don't know where to begin to fix the issue.
I just upgraded from 8.10 to 9.10 and now my sound doesn't work (note: I don't know if sound was working on 9.4, since I only ran that long enough to upgrade again) Sound was working just fine under 8.10, and I just tried booting up with a livecd I had handy, which is 8.04.1 and sound worked right off the bat, no problems.I've checked the volumes on everything, including the master volume which WAS initially set to 0.Sadly, turning that up did nothing.The Pulseaudio Volume Control app seems to think nothing's wrong- it's picking up the sound from various applications just fine, the volumes are all on, etc. (aplay lists my soundcard fine:

I realise this is an issue that has been covered a lot, one way or another, but at least from what I've been able to find, most of the discussion centres around getting HDMI audio to work. However, I have problems even getting the video to work from my laptop's HDMI output.
I have an HP dv6z-se, with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6550 (1 Gb) video card and using F14/KDE. My problem is that when I go to System Settings/Display/Monitor, Fedora doesn't actually seem to realise my computer even has an HDMI output and only displays options for VGA and my integrated screen.
When I plug it into my LCD screen, sometimes I get a 'No Signal' message and sometimes I get garbled static and a message about unrecognised input and the frequency it's coming at.
I read elsewhere in the forum that someone was able to get video working by editing their xorg.conf file, so I went in and tried to see if I could replicate that, but none of the files in my xorg.conf.d folder had anything related to video outputs (as far as I can tell at this point).
Can someone provide me with the exact instructions I need to backtrace pulseaudio? I have a bug that a developer is asking me to do a backtrace and the instructions on the ubuntu site aren't very good. I tried exactly what it said and my problem is that it says to "run the program under gdb by doing
gdb pulseaudio 2>&1 | tee ~/gdb-pulseaudio.txt
unfortunately pulseaudio isn't actually starting when I do this (I kill the program before I do this command, I also add the appropriate text file so pulse doesn't auto restart). Not sure what's going on but I'd appreciate any help as I can't get sound out of HDMI (I get it but it dies out fast).
For my mythtv/router box I'm trying to get the sound working trough hdmi as well as over the analog out. Because the HDMI is located on the mainboard and has something to do with the video driver I downloaded and installed the following:
ATI Catalyst™ 10.3 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver94.2 MB10.44/28/2010
However the output aplay -l is showing me(I got hdmi sound working on my laptop) isn't the same as on my laptop, it does not show the hdmi "sound card"
here is the output:
~$ aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: ALC883 Analog [ALC883 Analog] Subdevices: 1/1
I prefer sound trough hdmi but for the HDMI to work I previously needed to be able to see the HDMI device listed by aplay -l
HDMI outputs video but not sound from my Acer Aspire 5738 laptop.I have tried both SMPlayer and VLC setting both audio outputs to HDMI.Those media players have always worked for me using other Linux distros.Is there another media player that I should be using?If it's important;lspci lists;Audio as ATI and Video as ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500
Sound keeps coming from laptop's speakers, even when HDMI is connected to an external TV.
I've tried to fix this issue using both Pulse Audio Volume Control and KDE's System Settings -> Multimedia -> Audio and Video Settings. No luck. I've read several topics around, but there are plenty of variables to consider.
I have a Jetway "NVIDIA MCP7A-ION mini-itx for ATOM processor" board (whatever that may mean :-) -LF.pdf with HDMI but no SPDIF.How should I be able to produce some sound over HDMI?Here are my findings so far:

Trying to put up my HTPC with Ubuntu 9.10 but I cant get any sound to work. Im using a HDMI cable between the pc and TV. Computer is an Asrock ION HT/BD 330. Also running a 64 bit version of Ubuntu. I have upgraded all I know or think I know what to do but still with no luck. To start of heres my multimedia.
