Sound issues

Postby Johnahh on Wed Nov 11, 2009 7:46 pm

hi all
i am new to linux, fresh install just getting to know how to use it. i currently have no sound, i am using a HDTV and a geforce 9800GT. these are connected with a DVI to HDMI cable, therefore no sound can go through, so i have a jack to Phono cable alongside the HDMI cable so it can produce the sound.
i have sound if i plug my speakers into the jack but not when i plug my HDTV in? any one know a fix for this problem as i am a big fan of how i met your mother and would like to watch it using linux

thanks!!

That sounds (pun intended) absurd
I'd check the stereo jacks you use
Have you had it working earlier?
If so I see no reason why it should not work now

Hello,

I have the same problem - and it is recent. I have been using Mint 7 x64 since it came out, and ASAIK the sound problems started around the same time apt-get upgraded to the 2.6.28 kernel. If I choose the older 2.6.27-7 kernel, I have speaker sound again. I hadn't thought to check the headphone jack plug, but it works.

I do not have a fix for the situation at the moment and created this forum account to see what others have to say.

I suspect this is also the same issue as this thread:

Sound coming from box and through headphones

@ krcrouse
If you read the first post you'd seen that it is a different (very different) problem than yours. Please open a new topic for your problem
