[SOLVED] Mint 20 AMD R9 Fury card crackling sound

Post by Dukenukemx »

Since I upgraded to Mint 20 Cinnamon I get crackling or buzzing sound out of my F9 Fury HDMI when I have too many applications running. I have to shut off some applications until the sound from like a YouTube video stops crackling. My CPU is a Ryzen 7 1700. Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Did you do an upgrade in place or a fresh install?

Please give us information about your install by entering this command in a terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxxxrz
Enclose the results between [ⅽode] and [/ⅽode] code markers by selecting </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply. This will let us know how Mint sees your hardware.

Which kernel were you using in LM19 that you were not getting this noise?
And was that LM19 install working well with your equipment?

The latest kernel since I update a lot. I use mainline to update the kernel.

It was. I'm thinking it has something to do with the power saving feature for the audio and Google shows that's the most common problem. It just randomly does this as I have many tabs open now and the sound is fine. So I think I need a way to disable the power saving feature. Any idea how I can do this with my AMD HDMI sound?

So you were not using the 5.4 kernel in LM19. That is the LTS kernel in LM20.

Unless my search turns up something different from yours, I would be doing the same thing as you to find a solution and you know your equipment better than me. :D

After I posted that I recalled seeing posts here on the forum asking about crackling noises. Maybe this might help Getting a hissing and crackling sound.

Edited to add: Or maybe this Steam game sound cracking but worked before

If the above doesn't help, you can disable the power saving with this command followed by a reboot:

Code: Select all

sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel.conf <<<'options snd-hda-intel power_save=0'

Thanks, the timer-based scheduling sounds more like my problem. I tried the fix and will wait to see if that fixes the problem. The problem randomly happens so I gotta wait.

Does that work with HDMI out of AMD graphics card?

Basically yes. It works for anything that uses the snd-hda-intel driver. Your Hauppauge device it won't work for I believe, nor the camera for sure:

Little late to reply but this fixed my problem. No sound crackling since I did this.

Glad that first link helped. If you edit the title of your first post in this thread and add [SOLVED] that will alert others with a similar issue this would be a good thread to read.
