HDMI sound on Nvidia 8200

Post by yamawho »

I installed Mint 7 64bit on a Asus M3N78=VM which has onboard 8200.

I used the nvidia 800 driver and got my 1920 x 1080 res on my TV going but so far no sound thru HDMI.
I went into the sound area and tried using HDMI sound for music and movies but no matter what I have tried so far, no sound when I test it.

I had a Vista install before on this system and sound was working so at least I know that.

Is there something else I need to do or app to install ?

Isn't the sound thru HDMI done by some Intel HDA - it is on my Radeon (I don't use it though)
If it is, and you can check that by running lspci where you should find two sound chips I think, it is very probable that the standard solution for all kinds of problems with HDA works
You change model to what ever you have or auto or some more exotic model like in this topic
You may have to try many different "models" to get it to work - brand or model ...
Note the link to a post in the Ubuntu forums for a list of "models"
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
