ALSA autoconfigs wrong codec regardless of .conf

Post by artoff »

I am using Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon on a ThinkCentre M93p Type 10AA. The audio codec for this machine is a Realtek ALC283.

To configure ALSA I changed the last line of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf to:
options snd-hda-intel model=alc283-headset
However, ALSA always shows a ALC3239 (in alsamixer for example, also dmesg)

How could I set the right codec here?

best
-a


inxi output:
Audio: Device-1: Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor HD Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
Device-2: Intel 8 Series/C220 Series High Definition Audio driver: snd_hda_intel

dmesg output:
[ 7.055769] snd_hda_intel 0000:00:03.0: bound 0000:00:02.0 (ops i915_audio_component_bind_ops [i915])
[ 7.079824] snd_hda_codec_realtek hdaudioC1D2: autoconfig for ALC3239: line_outs=1 (0x14/0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0) type:speaker

Hi artoff, and welcome to the forum.

I'm not going to pretend I know much about codecs, but some are almost exact copies of others.

I would suggest not fighting what ALSA is reporting, and work with what options are available for the codec ALSA is reporting. ALC283 and ALC3xxx both use the same list of options in this table, but you can't use one that specifically mentions a codec other than what ALSA is reporting:

Code: Select all

Depending on what you're trying to accomplish, there's a good chance model=dell-headset-multi is what you're looking for. It doesn't matter that you're not using a Dell.
