OpenSUSE Hardware :: No HDMI Audio On NVidia GeForce / NForce IGPU On Mb ASUS P5N7A-VM 11.2 Or 11.3?
Aug 6, 2010
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 first started having problems on 10.10 a few days ago. Just boots to a command prompt. After troubleshooting, I found when I remove xorg.conf gnome starts up. Under System>Preferences>Monitors shows my correct Monitor model and resolution.
The resolution displays properly, 1680x1050, but without Nvidia and Graphic acceleration, I can't run my Compiz effects or XBMC. I'm having the exact same issues with 11.04. I ran nvidia-xconfig as root to get an auto gen xorg.conf. No change. GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 integrated graphics card
I used the videocard Geforce 6150 nforce 430 (NV4C) without problems untill the upgrade to kernel > 2.6.32 and nvidia-drivers > 190.*. After the upgrade I can use only nv and vesa in the Gentoo x86_64 and in the Fedora 13 x86_64. When I try to install Geforce 8800 GT everything becomes good with free nvidia-drivers and with proprietary ones in both distributions. use this videocard with the kernel 2.6.33(34)* and nvidia-drivers 196.* ?
I am just getting into fedora and have installed it on an EMachine ET 1810. According to my SMOLT info, I have the above Video card. (my smolt info is in my signature). I had installed a couple of games that require 3d drivers in order for the game to play! but I can't find any.
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 seen a lot of threads on this issue and combed through most of them trying to diagnose my problem and I've gotten REALLY close but with no complete success yet.I have a nVidia GeForce GTX 465 and I'm running HDMI out to my monitor. I have video but no audio. I can see the device in the Hardware tab of Sound Preferences but for the life of me I can't get it to play any audio (aside from testing with white noise).Output from aplay -l:
Code: *** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC892 Analog [ALC892 Analog]
I would like to build up a multi boot system with 11.3 on ASUS M2N32 WS motherboard inclusive NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI RAID controller and Marwell 88SE614xSATA connectors.The problem is that if I built up the RAID-1 arrays (2x500, 2x1000) it cannot be seen from Suse install. As far as I investigated the nForce driver is in 11.3, but in this case why the installation hangs (no reset button, only power off). Sorry I cannot provide you a log, becuase the installation procedure goes to the restart, the system restarts, and Grube says error 15 or 21.
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 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.
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...
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 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 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:
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.
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 own an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC that has an Intel HD IGP, nVIDIA GeForce GT 325M GPU, and nVIDIA Optimus technology. I am running OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME. I used to be a former Ubuntu user. I used Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 64 bit. In Ubuntu, it was not recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers because it would cause me to log into a TTY console upon reboot.
nVIDIA states that they have no plans to support Optimus technology in Linux at any time. Would it be recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers in OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME? Will I get the same problem as in Ubuntu? How do I do this?
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.

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 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 am having a challenge to install drivers on this machine with the OS and graphics card stated in the subject. To date I have tried different ways and they are broken in the steps or in the results I get on my machine. The how-to written by ajohnw Installing an nvidia driver - easiest I have found to date. results in a file or directory not found when I try to execute
The article SDB:NVIDIA the hard way results in the following error (copied from the error log):
ERROR: The kernel header file '/usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h' does not exist.The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/usr/src/linux' have not been configured.
Researching how to resolve that error and I can't find anything relevant to openSUSE 11, closest version being openSUSE 9.Lastly, I've tried this SDB:NVIDIA drivers and for some reason it does not generate the xorg.conf file. At least that's what I am concluding. I go through the steps, reboot the system and boot only to a command prompt. Navigating to /etc/X11/ there is no xorg.conf and I have to copy xorg.conf.install to xorg.conf to get back into the Desktop.
I have just installed openSUSE 11.1 64 bit on my system. Subsequently registered to get an auto-update repo and auto-updated until no more updates were offered. Then I first tried YaST to install NVidia drivers from the NVidia repo (added their repo), but sax2 wouldn't recognize them. So I downloaded their 190. (beta) drivers, installed the kernel source code and gcc 4.3. Then I switched to a console (Ctrl+Alt+F1), closed the x server, ran the driver install as described (gcc 4.3 is installed). Installer said that all is fine (I checked the log to be sure). So I ran sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia, but the driver still isn't recognized.
On openSUSE 11.1 I was able to configure KDE 4 for 2 monitors with sax2 (although the resolution was bad).On 11.2 neither SAX2 nor KRandR seem to work. The KDE User Guide says that a driver supporting version 1.2 is necessary. However the nvidia driver for eForce FX Go5200 seems to support only version 1.1.Is there a way to use both monitors with SUSE 11.2? I am quite desperate since for my work using only 1 monitor is definitely a handicap.
I did not find my graphics card in the HCL/Nvidia video cards thread. I looked in YaST for drivers & found none. My desktop pc freezes after the system loads so I cannot use my system. I understand about the level '3' boot option for tty input. How would I download/run the nvidia installer from tty?
When i start the install of the open suse linux 11.2 load the kernel but later my display is in black, i think that is my graphic card becouse in other linux only load linux without graphic mode, what i have to do for install open suse?, i can download a driver with the installer or something like?
