Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Audio Through HDMI On Acer Revo 3700 Running On 10.10 64bit?

Mar 11, 2011

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)

Ubuntu :: Acer Revo 3700 No Sound Through Hdmi

Dec 20, 2010

I've just installed ubuntu 11.04 on my recently purchased acer aspire revo 3700. After completing the initial install of ubuntu, running all available critical and recommended updates, and installing and activating the 3rd party driver for the nvidia card I'm having trouble. I am getting good video through the hdmi cable to my sony bravia 32" tv, but no sound (sound works fine in regular tv or xbox use).

I'm relatively inexperienced with linux so I'm not entirely sure what information would be relevant and helpful to assisting me with deciphering this issue, but I will do my best.I've found no proprietary driver for sound through the nvidia ion processor, only one for the graphics arm. I would assume they are sharing a driver, but as its not stated I cannot be sure. The 'additional drivers' control panel calls it the 'NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current)' The chip is the nvidia GT218-ION. Settings in sound preferences are high definition audio controller digital stereo (hdmi) selected for output.

results from aplay are:

UR@UR-Acer:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC662 rev1 Analog [ALC662 rev1 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1


Ultimately nothing so far has worked. I'm not getting any sound from any application or the sound tests in the preferences hardware tab.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Hangs On Acer Aspire Revo 3700?

May 26, 2011

My Acer Aspire Revo 3700 installed fine. I did the commands on this page to prevent the system from hanging on shutdown and reboot, and it went fine.

Against my better judgement, I allowed the system to install a new nvidia driver a couple days ago. Some other stuff was updated as well, so I don't know where to pin the problem.

The Problem: Now, when I shutdown or reboot the system, the system hangs with the Ubuntu logo on screen.

Copy of my dmesg:

[ 0.000000] Initializing cgroup subsys cpuset

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting HDMI Audio Out To Work On Acer 5738

Aug 29, 2010

For the benefit of all other users i am specifying the steps i followed to get HDMI audio to work after a lot of toil.

Laptop configuration: Acer 5738 Ubuntu (10.04) Lucid Lynx

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.

Ubuntu :: Acer Revo, Audio Devices Disappeared?

Jul 17, 2010

I've just been setting up my new Revo with Ubuntu for use as a HTPC with XBMC etc..
Previously I had audio coming out through HDMI, but now I have lost all devices under the sound settings.

I was using alsa mixer, is there any way of getting this working again? A HTPC without sound is a bit useless!

I can't really say what I've done, as I took a few approaches to it, but I've tried to remove everything so it's back to normal. I think maybe it happened after updating some NVIDIA drivers..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Calling All Acer Revo Owners

Feb 27, 2010

I'm running the latest version of Ubuntu, and have upgraded the NVIDIA drivers to the latest ones from the website (not sure if that's part of the problem). I've got XBMC installed and it seems to be working, but I can't for the life of me get anything but Stereo passed over HDMI, according to my Onkyo 606 amp that is anyway.Can anyone tell me if it's actually possible, or if they've actually managed it, to get surround sound playing over HDMI on an ACER Revo running Karmic?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: AC3 Passthrough Pulse/Alsa/XBMC - Acer Aspire Revo?

Jun 16, 2010

Is it possible to install XBMC onto Ubuntu Lucid and still have passthrough audio to a connected receiver (i.e. a workaround with Pulse)? I have an Acer Aspire Revo R1600 connected via HDMI to my Onkyo reciever. I am able to get desktop sounds and play MP3 files from XBMC, but passthrough has been a bear. If I tell Pulse that my sound device is analog, for some reason I can get XBMC to pass through audio. However, I would like to keep system sounds and have the passthrough ability if it's possible. As I understand it (from about two weeks of fidgeting) this is a limitation of Pulse and it's lack of pass through support. It seems so simple. I've tried multiple different .asoundrc configirations none of which have gotten me there. I've upgraded Alsa. I'd rather not run XBMC live if I dont have to. I'd like to have the ability to have a workstation for when I need it. I've upgraded to the latest NVIDIA driver available from their website - 195.36.31.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Upgrade To An Acer Revo R3610 Dual Core Intel Atom 1?

Dec 14, 2010

I have a question that has been partially answered in other posts and forums but I am still unclear. Please can someone help me out? I was previously using an Intel Atom 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM and the onboard Intel graphics adaptor for use as a media center PC. This was running Lubuntu and I could use Flash at full screen without any issues.

I have since decided to upgrade to an Acer Revo R3610 (Dual core Intel Atom 1.6GHz, 4GB RAM, Corsair SSD and Nvidia ION grpahics). I thought that as this machine was more powerful than my previous one, I could get away with ditching Lununtu and go for Ubuntu 10.10 (x86).

I have updated the machine and installed the latest Nvidia drivers. When I browse to a Flash based site all runs fine until I go to full screen then I get about 10FPS (sound remains fine). The video is unwatchable. I rebuilt the machine using Windows 7 Ultimate (x86) and tested again. Under Windows the video plays perfectly.

I have also tried using the 10.2 beta version of Flash under Ubuntu and this gives the same terrible results. I am at a loss as to where the issue lies. Is it with Nvidia's driver, Adobe's Flash under Linux or is it my Ubuntu build?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 9.10 On Acer Aspire Revo + NVidia ION LE + XBMC On Vizio L32HDTV - Title Bar And Taskbar Missing

Apr 22, 2010

when I connected to the L32 HDTV over the HDMI cable, picture came up, and I thought great, plug & play. But the title bar and taskbar were missing and I soon learned that this cheap Vizio TV has a native resolution of 1366x768 and simply upscales and chops off what it considers "overscan" when you drive it at the proper 720p 1280x720. To add to the problems, it doesn't report the correct EDID modes (look at your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see the probes or install and use the read-edid package) so 1366x768 isn't an option out of the box. I spent days mucking around with /etc/X11/xorg.conf with custom Modelines, strange options and copying confs from other threads, trying to get it working at 1366x768 or 1360x768 or 1368x768 (some variations seem to work for some people)

In the end, I didn't have to touch xorg.conf at all =) All I had to do was install the newer NVIDIA 195 drivers!!! Then you get the lovely Overscan Compensation slider in nvidia-settings, and all is well. First, you will have to apt-get remove the old drivers (probably -185 or -180). Install apt-show-versions for an easy way to do that. I had a bunch of junk, I just removed all packages that had nvidia-someversionnumber in the package name.

Ubuntu :: Acer Revo Internet Access Not

Mar 6, 2010

Its been a few years since I gave linux a go but having just bought an acer revo and enjoyed xbmc on myxbox I thought I would give it another go.I downloaded the 64 bit version to usb stick and got to the desktop of the live install.Everything looks great but no internet access over both wireless and ethernet.I'm used to the wireless being detected etc in windows and even though I found what must be the network manager and put in my 64 bit wep code etc it couldn't find my wireless connnection.

I thought then that mabey the preinstall ubuntu doesn't do internet.Just to see if this was the case tried it with the netbook version on this I can get ethernet access but on removing network cable no access at all.I've got an old netgear router which I am replacing soon in case thats the problem.I don't want to install ubuntu unless I can get wireless internet/network access.Being a total linux newb some of the guides I've tried to follow on the net presume I have too much knowledge.So I end up getting lost.I go into wireless connections psecify name of network (SSID ie Wireless) put in the Mac code of my router and the 64bit WEP key. I don't touch the lpv4 and 6 settings as don't know what they do Still no joy

I wonder if anyone out there has a revo 64 bit version of ubuntu working and could help mme find my wireless connection.Just an update I reput the settings into the netowrk manager and it worked although very slow.Is this because its a live install. I'll now try it with ubuntu 64 bit and see if I can get access...I seem to be getting there although very slow

Ubuntu :: WOL On Acer Revo- MAC Address Invalid?

May 30, 2010

xbmc 9.11 HTPC (confluence skin) on an acer revo 3610 running ubuntu 9.10 can someone possibly help me as I cannot get WOL to work. Went into BIOS under power management and enabled WOL.I have used this guide to set up. HOWTO: Set your system up for Wake On LAN (WOL my ipconfig is

xbmc@xbmc-desktop:~$ ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 90:fb:a6:2c:b2:1f
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::92fb:a6ff:fe2c:b21f/64 Scope:Link


I then tried to follow this guide HOW-TO set up Wake-On-Lan (Ubuntu) and followed those steps also still nothing. I deleted this script however as it did nothing and didnt want to have two scripts that might be interfering with each other.How can I check that the magic packs are being received by the computer? I think it has something to do with the MAC address but Im a linux noob and gettng kinda lost now, ANY help would be much appreciated. I also have a another linux computer hooked up on the network to test however I want to WOL via the internet incase I am traveling and need to wake up my htpc. Can anyone please help me as I think I have the scrips installed and Im just not doing something simple like configuring the magic packs correctly to send the information.

General :: Revo 3610 Not Doing HDMI Handshake?

Sep 12, 2010

I am having a problem with my Revo 3610 which is connected to my TV via HDMI.

For some reason it will not do the HDMI handshake with the TV, so my TV does not think that there is anything in the HDMIport.

I have tested the TV and it works fine with my laptop and DVD player.

It does work sometimes, but this time it's failed for two days in a row. I've tried rebooting and turning the TV off and on, but nothing helps.

I can trick the TV to listen to the HDMI by connecting with my laptop and then changing the HDMI back to my revo; this results in the image going through nicely but there is a big fat "Check signal cable." message on the screen.

I have also tried changing the resolution in the revo but this does not help either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Audio Over HDMI

May 12, 2011

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).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Acer Aspire Revo R3610 CPU Clock Speed Not Reducing With Low Load On 11.3

I just installed oS11.3 on a new Aspire Revo R3610 which has the Intel Atom 330 chip and Nvidia ION graphics.

I noticed that the CPU is always running at 1600Mhz and doesn't throttle down when there is no load. Do the Atom cpus not throttle down or is there a setting in 11.3 that I can change?

I installed the 64bit of oS 11.3.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No HDMI Audio With ATI HD 3300?

Apr 21, 2010

I've been googling and searching these forums and I can't find a fix. I just discovered that I have a headphone jack on the bottom of my monitor and it would be a lot more convenient to use that rather than the jack on my tower. However, when I switch to HDMI audio output I don't hear anything. I now it's not my cable because it works on my HDTV and throughput audio fine.

I have Ubuntu 9.10 with the Asus M4A78T-E mobo with integrated ATI HD 3300 graphics. I am running the official drivers from ATI, ATI Catalyst 10.3 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver, the latest and greatest, not the one from Synaptic. I know this is a bad time to be looking for a fix since 10.4 is out in 8 days but if anyone knows a quick fix that would be great.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Audio Not Working?

May 13, 2010

I am running 10.04 with an integrated Radeon HD3200 card. When I set up the tv through hdmi, the sound works perfectly; however, when I switch to analog audio to play something else, the next time I try to use hdmi audio I get nothing. It shows to have good level through Pulse Audio Volume Control - shows like there is a sound coming through it, but I get no audio through the tv. The only way I can fix this is by uninstalling proprietary drivers and reverting back to generic configuration and then reinstalling proprietary drivers. I have to revert back to generic in order to get the sound working again.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Audio On HD4870 ?

Dec 3, 2010

I have an ECS A785GM-M and the integrated HD4200 HDMI audio was working out of the box on a clean Ubuntu 10.04 install. After the updates and all, everything still worked just fine for a month.

Then, I installed a HD4870 with ATI DVI to HDMI adapter and the sound is not working (it works flawlessly on Windows 7, so it is not the hardware). The creepy stuff is that on Pulseaudio GUI configuration, everything looks right: ATI 48x0 HDMI is selected as output and when some sound is playing the bar moves, although there is no sound coming from the TV speakers.

I tried editing /etc/pulse/default.pa as suggested on this link, but it didn't helped. I'm kind lost here, since it looks that there is nothing wrong and yet, it is not working.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No HDMI Audio Signals In 11.04

May 2, 2011

I have recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 64bit. After normal install process, it invited me to install ATI proprietary drivers (because I have an ATI Radeon HD4850 video card). Everything seems to work out of the box, except the HDMI sound. The HDMI video works OK, and also the normal sound using the onboard soundcard work OK. By my knowledge I think I have setup the audio properties correctly. Some screen-shots attached. What happens when I switch the output to HDMI is no audio signal on the TV. The HDMI works OK (both sound and video) on my Win7 64 bit install.
