No HDMI sound

Postby Tharbad on Mon Oct 08, 2012 11:47 am

Hello,

I have no sound with my HDMI output.

Detailes:
OS: Mint Xfce 13 x32
Graphic Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 6450 1GB.
I'm using AMD drivers.

I just upgraded from Mint KDE 11 x32 where I had no sound problem (But I had performance problems so I moved to Xfce).

What I tried:
* Editing /etc/asound.conf so HDMI is the default output.
* Setting HDMI as default profile in pulse audio. - This one actually worked until the next restart.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I have a solution:
1) Remove AMD driver
2) Restart
3) Install AMD driver
4) Restart
5) Sound is working

After another restart it's dead again. I think it's a bug...

No HDMI sound

Postby Tharbad on Sat Oct 27, 2012 8:07 am

Hi,

After installing Radeon drivers and restarting the pc I have sound but if I restart again I don't.
So If I want to get sound (Through the HDMI port) I need to:
1) Uninstall the drivers
2) Restart
3) Install the drivers
4) Restart
5) Keep the pc running forever.

I'm guessing there is something that is running in the next boot after the installation that is not running anymore after that. But I have no idea how I'm suppose to find it.

System Details:
Mint 13 Xfce x32
CPU: AMD Athlon II x2 265
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 5450

I've just upgraded the system from Mint 11 KDE x32 which worked fine.

Thanks

hi Tharbad,

sound like the driver module is not being loaded on boot.
go to a terminal and type the following command after a fresh boot.

then list the output here see if we can help.

Code: Select all
lsmod


where l is lowercase L not #1.

Had the same problem on Linux Mint 14. The following solved this issue for me:

To setup the HDMI sound system for output get the package - pavucontrol

In the terminal, first just type: pavucontrol

If this app does not exist then get the app by typing: sudo apt-get install pavucontrol
followed by your password.

Now run this app again by typing: pavucontrol

When the app launches it should say Volume control at the title-bar of the app. Select the configure tab / from the drop-down menu for profile - select the HDMI option.

On the Output device tab, the port should read HDMI....

That should do it!!! It worked for me and I hope you are lucky as well. :D

Same problem here with Linux Mint 13 Mate on Dell Inspiron N5110. I have to reset the output to Built-in Audio Analog Stereo instead of GF108 High Defiinition Audio Controller Digital Stereo (HDMI) each time I reboot. When I tried to add
Code: Select all
rm -r ~/.pulse && killall pulseaudio 
to startup applications I got the sound working again but I could no longer control the volume and had to do it through the media player :roll: :roll:
