No sound on HDMI TV after restart

Post by BigAngry »

I have a tv connected via hdmi. Most of the time I use speakers and have my sound device set to analog out which works fine. If I use my tv I get picture and sound the first time I plug in the hdmi cable (e.g. Cable unplugged, start pc, plug in hdmi, turn on tv = everything works). If I leave the cable plugged in as is most ideal and turn off my pc, the next time I turn it on the HDMI sound device is missing from my sound options and I cant find any way to make pulse rescan and find the device again. I have to go and unplug the cable and restart my pc to get it to work again.

I've been trying to troubleshoot this for quite a while now to no avail, including trying to restart the pulse daemon and detection modules, but there seems to be no clear solution. Another thing Ive noticed is that when i increase/decrease the volume I get 2 sound icons on my screen while the hdmi cable is plugged in.

Anyone have any input on whats going on here?

Ive got it plugged into an nvidia graphics card. The TV hdmi connection is missing in sound the second time around.
