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 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 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.
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.
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).
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.
I put a hdmi cable on my note, I turned on the TV and ran to is a beauty but when I turned on the video ... the sound did not come. I went to System -> Preferences -> Sound and changed the output to "Digital Stereo (HDMI) output. And no sound came out. The boxes of note works perfectly.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10. Everything is working fine except I have no sound. When I use the command 'aplay -D hw:0,0 somefile.wav', I can get sound through headphones attached to the headphone jack. But I can't get any sound through the speakers. This is a dual boot desktop and the sound works fine under Windows, so no problems with hardware. The PC monitor is connected through a hdmi cable and I would need sound through the speakers. The output of alsa-info.sh is at
I'm using an HDMI connection, and the sound connection is unreliable at best. When it works, it is working fine, then all of a sudden (maybe because it isn't being actively used for an extended period of time)the sound connection vanishes. When at System --> Preferences --> Sound --> Output I'm not seeing any option for the HDMI connection currently and the sound is not working. All the volumes are unmuted and I cannot use a softphone nor .....,nor do videos that I have watched in the past with sound have any.
Last night when this happened, I rebooted and the sound was working just fine then. In the past, I was able to get the computer to recognize the HDMI connection has sound by momentarily unplugging it, then plugging it back in. Though both last night and today that hasn't worked.When I bought my computer, I had Windows 7 installed on it. The same thing was happening then, though it was always fixed via disconnecting the HDMI connection briefly, so there is the possibility of it being a hard ware issue.
I've also tried turning off the device (a HDTV in this case) and turning it back on, but that only solved it once or twice, and neither last night nor today.This is also a 64 bit computer, should that be relevant. Using Ubuntu 10.10, and the only available update to my system at the moment is Google Chrome, which I will be updating after this post.I will be restarting my computer after that update and posting back here if the sound is working, especially with note of whats listed at the System --> Preferences --> Sound --> Output if there are any additional options (from memory, there was an HDMI choice there).
I recently purchased a new video card a GeForce 550 Ti, but I haven't been able to get sound working over HDMI.
I'm running the latest version of Ubuntu (11.04) and have installed the proprietary drivers through Additional Drivers.
The card is being picked up by alsa and I've configured Ubuntu to use HDMI in sound preferences:
When I check alsamixer this is what I see:
ALSA reports that version 1.0.23 is installed, although I thought 11.04 came with version 1.0.24?
I've tried purging ALSA and reinstalling it but it didn't help. Is there anything I can do? Does anyone know if this card is supported by ALSA properly yet? I hate the thought of having to go to Windows to get this working
I have an HTPC running Ubuntu 11.04 and Boxee. Main sound is through HDMI (nVidia MCP73). I would also like to use the headphone jack on the computer from time to time (kids sleeping, etc). Is this possible? I've browsed around here but haven't found anything definitive. I've monkeyed around with the settings in alsamixer quite a bit and haven't found anything promising.
i have just recently switched back to Ubuntu and im trying to run my sound through my tv which is connected through my computer using a hdmi cable thats plugged into my EVGA Nvidia GeForce 210 video card ... i have my computer monitor set up as my main screen but i have my tv set up as separate X screen so i can drag over a movie and watch it on the big tv screen and still do things on my monitor ... when i was running windows i was able to get the sound to play through my tv just as i am tryin to do now... does anyone know how i can do this on Ubuntu 10.04
I am having trouble getting sound over hdmi with my Nvidia MCP7A HDMI. The strange thing is that everything works fine in a Live disc, but once I do a fresh install of that Live disc I get no sound, even though my configuration is exactly the same (as far as I can tell). I've checked the little things like alsamixer volumes, aplay -l, etc etc. Everything looks good to me. I can reproduce on multiple TVs so its not the receiver. Video drivers are the same in both live version and installed. aplay -l detects my device. sound/pci/hda/patch_nvhdmi.c already has my correct vendor id in it. Perhaps the following info can figure out what my installed environment is lacking.
I can't get HDMI sound reliably when using Ubuntu. The strange thing is, if I repeatedly reboot the computer, eventually the sound will work. This can take anything up to 10 reboots. Once working, it will keep on working as long as the machine is not rebooted or shut down. HDMI sound works fine under Windows.
aplay -l will only list the Intel (analogue and S/PDIF) hardware, not the Nvidia, even when it is working. Selecting between analogue and digital output under Sound Preferences has no effect on the HDMI either way.
Video is ok, but never any sound. I went through and made sure the HDMI is selected as the audio device and I upgraded to the latest driver binary.
HDMI sound works without the ATI proprietary driver installed, but the needed resolution is not available and the picture overlaps the edges on my 32" LCD. At least I know it is not a hardware issue. ALSA is loaded and selected as the sound manager, but the volume controls don't appear in the ALSA slider console.
I tested the cable and display on another computer. I am using a new Gigabyte GA-MA78LM-SH2, it is the integrated video.
I was hoping that upgrading to 10.04 would fix my problems with sound and HDMI but alas it doesn't. I have an HP dv7 that I wish connect via an HDMI cable to my HDTV and play things like Hulu, Boxee, etc. with the sound coming out of my home theater system. I know that the hardware is capable of doing this because I have Windows 7 installed in a dual boot and it has no problems with pumping sound down the HDMI channel.
I've upgraded to Alsa 1.0.23 freshly compiled. With 1.0.23 I see HDMI settings in Pulse Audio Volume Control. However if I start say VLC and play a video, check pavucontrol and make sure the Playback is set to the HDMI channel. I can hook up the HDMI cable and I can see the video playing - but no audio. I've been in and out of all kinds of things like alsamixer, gnome-alsamixer, sound preferences, etc. and I've toggled things on and off in an attempt to get HDMI sound working but nothing works.
In alsamixer if I hit f6 I see my 0 card as HDA Intel and my 1 card as NDA NVidia. If I select NVidia I see only S/PDIF, S/PDIF 1, S/PDIF 2, S/PDIF 3. I can only mute or unmute these. I've tried both - nothing works. Let me know what sort of output/info you need and I'll post it. Here's some info I've seen others post:
I'm having a bit of trouble getting sound to work over HDMI with my GT240 card. I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 (upgraded from 10.04) on kernel 2.6.35-23. I can get sound over HDMI by using the following commands:
speaker-test c2 -D plughw:0,7
aplay -Dplughw:0,7 track06.mp3
However, I get no sound from normal applications (Totem, Rhythmbox, flash, etc). It's also worth noting that I can get sound from plughw:0,7, plughw:0,8 and plughw:0,9, but if I use plughw:0,3 there's no sound. I checked in alsamixer and all four channels are unmuted. I followed the instructions on this guide to get this far.
I have a Zotac Mag Atom computer with Nvidia ION graphics. This computer i use as a HTPC hooked up to my 42" LG flatscreen via HDMI. The problem i have is that after have installed de correct graphics drivers the graphics chip only sends picture over HDMI whilst there allso is going sound.
I have no HDMI sound for my ASUS ENGT 240 gard. I've used the recommended driver 10.04 offered and currently using the one right from [URL] for 10.04 64 bit. Don't know how to get the boxes around code, but here's what I have for aplay -l, aplay -L, and lspci.
