OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.3 - No Sound Output From HDMI Port
Nov 20, 2010
Having some problems with HDMI-Audio on my HTPC: I don't get sound out of HDMI port! For system info look there: Sysprofile
OS is Suse11.3 64Bit with KDE now!
At "System-Settings/Multimedia/Audio Output" there are the following devices in the given order:
HDA NVidia (ALC662 rev1 Analog)
HDA NVidia (ALC662 rev2 Digital)
HDA NVidia, NVIDIA HDMI (HDMI Audio)
That's consistent with the connector layout of the mainboard. Playing "Test sound" while marked the HDMI Audio is not causing any output with HDMI, while analog works just fine!
I also installed the nVidia prop drivers with the packet manager.
In YAST there is one card found in the sound section::
Idex=0 and Card Model=MCP79 High Definition Audio
I am attempting to set up a machine to use as a movie/video viewer. When I connect this machine using an HDMI cable to an HDMI TV, I get video, but no audio. No beeps, no system sounds, no noise of any kind.
I've run the following mixers and set all volume controls to maximum:Gmixer, Kmix, AlsaMixer and pavucontrol.
When playing a video, pavucontrol meter shows signal from the application and shows output signal to the HDMI device, but where that output is going to is beyond me.
Using the Sound setup of Yast, I attempt to play a test sound on the HDMI, nothing.
Built in Audio adapter works fine. I have disabled it in pavucontrol in attempts to get the sound directed to the HDMI output, but, silence is all I get. I've also tried enabling and disabling simultaneous output with no difference in results.
I've tried a few suggestions from other posts with the same issue (creating /etc/asoundrc.conf, modifying /etc/pulse/default.pa), but no joy.
If I boot up that other operating system (starts with a W), all sounds (system & video) show up on the HDMI input with no adjustments needed.
Why must this be so difficult?
The technical details: Suse 11.4 EVGA GeForce 8400GS Video card (HDMI)
All commands below were issued while HDMI cable connected, and video playing (using VLC).
Running 10.10 and win 7 on my HP dv6-2150us laptop and I'm having a few issues.
First how do I get HDMI audio output to my TV? I think I have just a integrated Intel graphics card. It works fine in windows but I can't seem to get it to work in Ubuntu. I tried searching but couldn't find anything pertaining to this issue.
I recently got a new ATI HD 4890 graphics card that supports sound over HDMI. It works in my other OS (Windows 7) but I cannot get it to work in Xubuntu. I read somewhere that by default the open source drivers have HDMI sound disabled. How do I turn it on? I even tried the Comprehensive Sound Problems Solutions Guide and still have no sound.
I have recently acquired a Lenovo Q150 machine and attempting to use it as a HTPC. I've been reading that with this platform a newer kernel is required to make wireless, sound and a few other tweaks work correctly--so I bumped up to testing repositories to upgrade to the 2.6.38 kernel.[URL]...
The audio on this device has been more than a pain. I'm currently using XBMC to play media on this device and after setting the outputs to custom: plughw:1,9 sound is played correctly. I found this out by using alsamixer, selecting the sound card with the F6 key (Nvidia 1) unmutting all outputs, quiting, and running speaker-test -D plughw:1,X where X is the sub-device from the output of aplay -l until sound could be heard from the receiver.
Now my problem is that applications like mplayer, and iceweasel won't output any sound. I'd prefer not to use the optical out on the device and would like to send sound over HDMI. Has anyone had any luck getting it to work as it should?
I've also installed pulseaudio, not too sure if this is really needed. I've also used module assistant before upgrading to compile alsa from source, it worked but i just decided to upgrade the kernel instead of dealing with m-a every time an update comes through.

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
I just bought a powerful Sapphire nettop HD Mini-pc as shown here : [URL]
Installed a 32 bits version of ubuntu 10.10. Everything is working smoothly. So basically : - installed 10.10 with usb key on HDD - launch all update of the OS - installed Nvidia closed driver - update alsamixer to 1.0.23
So for now, I have in alsamixer 4 SPDIF out but no sound output from hdmi. HDMI output is well configured in the sound settings of ubuntu. I think this is linked to the ION 2 chipset and D510 proc.

I have HDMI sound enabled by default in System Configuration (Music, Movies and System Sounds), but the only multimedia application that uses it is DragonPlayer. (System Sounds work fine also)Kaffeine still wants to use my INTEL card as does Amarok; VLC Player just complains that my AlsaLib file isn't up to date.I am running opensuse 11.3, KDE 4.5.90 (4.6 RC1) Kernel 2.6.34-7-0.5-desktop sound is outputting to a Samsung 42" 1080p TV.
Sound/Video card is an ATI RV710 (Radeon HD 4350). What does DragonPlayer do that the other three applications do not?How can I configure Kaffeine and VLC to output via the HDMIAlso since doing a system update to KDE 4.5.90 my screen blanks every ten minutes, I have tried to disable screen saver and screen power save in power management, however still i can't stop the system blanking every 10 minutes any clues?Finally DragonPlayer is now crashing after every video has finished playing before i can start the next
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.
I have a HP 8510w which I attached to a sony tv via hdmi. picture is great but no sound. checked and in sound preferences, hdmi is not listed as a possible output device for sound. searched the net but couldnt find a solution. here some info:
Code: root@gre-HP8510w:/home/gre# uname -a Linux gre-HP8510w 2.6.35-28-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 1 14:39:03 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I am running openSUSE 11.2 with an hda-intel sound card (dell latitude d830) in x64. Pulseaudio is only giving me a "dummy" sound card, even though volume in the yast sound configuration works. Volume is definitely not muted.Here is the requested info:alsa-info.sh:[URL]
I work at a television station and we recently purchased a System76 Meerkat ION with the intended purpose of using the HDMI out port for broadcast purposes. We have an existing AJA HA5 box which is capable of converting HDMI to HD-SDI (HD-SDI being the baseband standard in professional broadcasting).
The converter is only willing to accept the following values:
1920 x 1080 @ 29.97 1280 x 720 @ 59.94
I am wondering if it is possible to manually configure Xorg.conf (or whatever file is being edited by NVIDIA X Server Settings) to tell the HDMI output to only produce the latter resolution (1280 x 720).
im running ubutu 9.10 with the standard nvida proprietry drivers as a media center. the output is over hdmi, through a a/v reciver and onto a lcd television. my proble mis that the output is too large for the screen even whan outputting at a smaller resoultion than the native resolution of the television. this means that the top, bottom, left and right of the output is chopped off. in windows i can adjust the size of the output useing some sliders to get the image to fit the screen. however these are only available in the windows drivers and i cannot find a substitute in the ubuntu ones. one way of doing it may be to output black bard at the sides of the screen but i have no idea how to do this.

I'm having trouble getting any output from my laptop's HDMI socket. I've had a search and can only find sound problems, mine is no visible output whatsoever.
Let me describe the setup: Laptop has a HDMI socket which I have never used before, HDTV has 4 HDMI inputs, I just bought a HDMI cable to connect the two to try it.
After connection I go to System->Preferences->Monitors and the TV is detected fine with the correct description and offers me 3 different resolutions. xrandr also works and gives me the same thing:
However none of the options display ANYTHING on the TV. The screen remains black, not even a flicker.
I have connected the laptop to the TV before using an analogue VGA (monitor) cable which worked in the same way with no problems.
Could this be an encryption/DRM/DVI problem? I have suspicions about the cable too because it is new and I haven't seen it work, but it wouldn't detect the correct TV description and resolutions would it? It was sold as an XBOX360/PS3 HDMI cable, is there a difference? It looks like a standard HDMI male-male cable.
Other things I've tried: Log off and log back on to restart the X server reboot
I recently switched from my integrated GPU (i5-650 Clarkdale) to a brand new nvidia GT520 but now my HDMI output is worse than my VGA : bright colors are completely saturated. I noticed that switching the HDMI colorspace from "full" to "limited" (using nvidia-settings) somewhat reduce the effects but doesn't solve it. I even tried to play with my monitor setting, with no luck. This was NOT the case previously. I'm using the latest nvidia-drivers and my 2 monitors are the same reference (LG 22" LCD - W2261VP-PF). Ubuntu 11.04.
I have an Okano 42" LCD TV, which I connect to my laptop via HDMI cable. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit the screen at the TV's resolution of 1920x1080, and there are about 40 pixels that run over the edge of each side on the TV, making the Ubuntu toolbars invisible.The standard NVIDIA control panel doesn't have any options for correcting this (in windows it had settings for adjusting the stretch/position of the screen), so I was wondering whether there are any common tools that ubuntu users can use to adjust the relative position and stretch of a screen?
BTW I think the cause of this is that my dodgy TV isn't correctly reporting its resolution to the laptop, and unlike most branded TVs, I don't have any system settings that can be adjusted to correct this (I know the panasonic counterpart can fix this in the system menu)..
A few days ago I setup a pc. It contains an "Intel ICH5" sound card. Before I begin posting all the configuration stuff I've tried so far what the standard procedures are to set it all up for recording the sound card output (with Audacity)?
On my older computer it all worked fine but now I only get silent recordings. However sometimes (when I played on the controls the right way...) I get recordings where you can (amoung some noise) recognize the stuff I actually wanted to record very low... Apart from Audacity I've also tried
Code: arecord -vv -fdat audio.wav which didn't work either. That's why I think the problem is not related to Audacity but to the system.
Is the combination of OpenSuse 11.2 + ALSA + Intel ICH5 commonly known to cause such trouble?
I'm using pulse audio sound server in opnsuse 11.3 and latest version of flash player, The problem is playing video or sound with flash player in firefox, Once I play something in firefox sound output it seem like closed to other applications like amarok.
A fresh install of 11.3 64 KDE 4.4 some packman stuff installed. Some broken as no current 64 bit libs or funky packman situation currently. CD audio is choppy. No mp3 playback though support is installed. [URL]....
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'm having trouble getting 1080p out my xfx 9800gt that has an onboard hdmi socket. No doubt my HDTV is 1080p (panasonic TH-427PZ70B a few years old now), and it will do and has run at 1080p 60hz.
It auto detects the display as simply panasonic-tv and outputs at 1080i. As I've been running mythtv with tv tuners this actually worked quite well as dvb-t is interlaced anyway and most ofthe HD video files I play are 720p. However I would like to run it at 1080p for all the usual reasons- especially as I have some 1080p files I'd like to enjoy in all their glory!!
This doesn't seem to be ubuntu specific as mandriva behaves the same, and makes no difference if I use the open source (default with 9.10), the official nvidia package or as I've just tried 10.04 with default and nvidia.
I've searched around for nvidia hdmi 1080p etc but can't seem to dig up anything useful. Surely I should be able to force the graphics card to output standard 1080p 60hz?
Should I be able to do this through xrandr by setting a modeline or in xorg.conf or nvidia control pannel!?
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.
Im able to detect the monitor on the laptop once connected but the monitor indicates "No Input". I've tried rebooting the computer with the HDMI cable connected with no avail. I have also tried out a host of other solutions offered in different forume with absolutely no change.
I have a HP pavilion dv6 3310si with 32-bit Ubuntu 11.04, an ATI HD Radeon 5600 with latest ATI radeon driver installed and this is my xorg.conf;

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.
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).
