Fedora X86/64bit :: ATI Radeon - Graphic Card With HDMI Video And Audio - Does Not Work ?
Dec 14, 2010
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 ?
I've loaded Fedora and must say what a nice OS! But I'm having some issues getting the video working correctly so let me jump right into the issue. The video is very garbled and hard to read. can't seem to find a way to correct what would appear to be a driver issue. Here are a list of things tried:
- display works fine with Ubuntu
- display is clear but is chopped off when using an external monitor from onboard vga slot
The video card is an ATI radeon and the linux drivers from the ATI site don't work with the new images that are out yet.
In Fedora 10, I cannot get to the installer because it shows these messed up strips graphics (its not due to my graphic card, my graphic card is supported 7600gt) in non-quiet install it shows logical errors and i/o errors.
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 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 lspci shows
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'm in trouble with playbacks (video and audio, desktop apps and live streams on Firefox). They are all running at least at double speed.
Running Fedora 13 - 64 bits - cpu AMD Phenom II X2 955 (dual core) flat, no overclocking, no hacking of any kind. I've tried a re-install of all media codecs and plugins. The problem persists since fresh install of Fedora.
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 64bit on Acer Revo 3700. After a month of debug sessions and reading the threads in this forum, I still haven't got the audio working on HDMI. Strange thing is that, the HDMI works without any problem on Windows 7 (but alas, the 1080P graphics quality is very poor) The audio output is set to HDMI in the "Sound" settings. The audio is not muted and is set to full volume. I'm using Alsa version 1.0.23 with latest nVidia drivers on Ubuntu I went through the below thread:[URL]but it did not help me either.I've attached most of the command outputs and content of my ~/.asoundrc (as per thread #1670681)
I'm having problems with trying to play 3d games or xbmc on a Compaq Evo N1020v laptop with Ati Radeon IGP 330M/340M/350M graphic card. Compiz works, glxgears works but any attempt to play 3d games results in failure.
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".
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 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
This TV tuner PCI card does not work with my linux. I tried it in a windows box and it worked great. I tried it with MythDora and found it non functional. Hauppage says that it should work with linux. VLC plays the out put of the tuner card just fine but cannot change channels.

i'm going to change my old Nvidia Graphic card wich runs very well in Ubuntu by an ATI HD Radeon 4770.Will Ubuntu recognize it when i plug it and start the computer, will Ubuntu reconfigure by itself?... or i'm going to have problems like not to be able to start the X server and only be able to enter to the console.Need i to remove the nvidia graphics driver before to plug in the new card?I have downloaded a program called Envy, which is supposed to reconfigure ubuntu properly... it's ok?Finllay, can i backup the curent configuration so that if the new card is not well installed i can return to the old without problems?
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).
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

I'm looking to put a new video card in my desktop. I need one that will be able to handle H.264 at 1920x1080, and I would like to find one that can do HDMI with audio. Shopping for video cards, as I heard somewhere, is the kind of thing that makes you want to bang your head against a wall until you go blind, because then you won't need to worry about it any more... someone will be able to recommend a model, or at least a chipset or something, before I rip my own eyes out.
I currently use "MSI Radeon HD 3650 Graphics Card - ATi Radeon HD 3650 750MHz - 512MB GDDR3 SDRAM - PCI Express" that have no HDMI and some problems with Ubuntu. Due to the Ubuntu compatibility problems I decided to ask you guys for recommendations before upgrading to a new video card.The only "demand" is that the card must have dual HDMI outputs, one for the monitor and one for the TV.
I intend to update my video card to allow the operation of all three of my monitors in a triple monitor configuration. I have a 790i motherboard with Nvidia chips, so I will most likely choose an Nvidia card for the upgrade. As I will need connections for three monitors, I will have to have two cards. It is my intention to have one large screen field spread across all three monitors. I assume the best way of doing this will be to use an SLI Bridge to link the two video cards. Thus the two video cards must be identical.
Question 01: Is this the best way of realizing a triple monitor setup?
While I am upgrading, I desire to also give the system the ability to play Blue-Ray High Def Movie one of the 1920x1200 monitors I will be using.
Question 02: What are the pitfalls of playing BD-Discs on Debian. I know I will be eventually acquiring a BD-Disc player (once the prices come down a bit more), but when shelling out for two video cards, I better think as far ahead as possible and get the two video cards that will do everything I can foresee them needing to do.
Question 03: As all of my monitors have HDMI input ports, I assume that I will need Video cards that have HDMI output ports to play full 1080P movies. Is this a valid assumption?
Question 04: Can anyone recommend a video card that does what I am wanting it to do? (This is to say Two Dual Link DVI connectors and an HDMI connector per video card with standard and high definition video playback capabilities). Keep in mind that I will most likely need to purchase two of them, to the Super Expensive Bleeding Edge cards are probably not going to be a practical option here.
Question 05: Is there a way that I can just play the BD-Discs with full resolution in a window on one of the three monitors I will have connected to the computer without having to go the HDMI route?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 in a Dell XPS M1330 laptop with Intel gma X3100 integrated graphics. I occasionally use it for watching movies in an LCD TV, however when I connect it I can get it to output video fine, but audio is a no go, when I select hdmi audio in the sound options I get no sound.
I have installed a 9200 Radeon (the card says 9250 on it, but computer reads as 9200) on a AMD Sempron 2500+ 64 bit,Ubuntu 10.04 Gnome 2.30.2, Kernel Linux 2.6.32-26; Samsung VGA 941BW monitor.
A friend told me if I added more RAM (512mb), the card would run properly & the graphics would be stellar.
He also told me the drivers were installed.
When I did this & started the computer, before I got to my login, a box appeared, telling me my graphics were running in "Low Mode", & do I want to configure them. When I said "Yes", it told me to restart. When I did, nothing happened & the video card is still running on "low". I checked the fglrx info, and was told "command not found".
I'm looking at upgrading my motherboard and graphics card. Ideally, I'd like to have 2 monitors running at once (DVI), and an output to an LCD projector (HDMI). If I can't have all 3 working at once, I'd like the 2 monitors on all the time (off the graphics card), and then switch from the monitors to the HDMI output so that only the projector is getting video.
So, If I get a motherboard with onboard HDMI, would it be possible to run the HDMI out at the same time as the graphics card output?
I am in the process of building a new desktop machine for work and fun. I am looking to run a undecided flavor of Linux (guessing Ubuntu) as my primary OS and several Windows installs with a Windows 7 install for .net development and gaming as virtualized environments.
From my previous experiences with virtualization software in Linux I was never able to find an application that offered descent video card support / graphic acceleration etc. to be capable of playing any games within one of the virtualized environments. And since I will be investing quite a bit of money into this system for gaming I would naturally want to find the best option available to achieve this setup.
So Onto my question: Is there any virtualization software available for Linux that has full video card support, graphic acceleration and capable of taking advantage of everything the video cards have to offer within the virtualized environments?
Or am I stuck with running Windows 7 as my primary OS and using virtualization for Linux and the other OS's?
Also I have no preference on open/closed source and price range would be up to $175.00 to support at least 3 virtualized environments.
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.
visit the link [URL] and read specifically the HDMI Audio section. Don't worry if you are unable to test for the sound. Connect the HDMI cable from the laptop to your LCD tv. This should be trivial. Make sure you switch your TV to HDMI input from its menu options. After enabling the HDMI configurations on your laptop using Step 1. Click on System--> Preferences --> Sound. Click on the Hardware tab. By default it might be set to Analog Stereo Duplex. Go to Output tab. Change the Connector drop down from Analog Speakers to Analog Headphones. Go back to Hardware tab and select Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output. Function+F5 would direct the video output to your TV. Incase you have a problem redirecting your video output to the TV. Restart your machine with the HDMI cable connected to your TV. With the configurations you would be able to hear sound from your TV. Have a blast! I have tried this with Acer 5738 it might work with other Laptop configurations as well.
