Fedora 16 HDMI sound

Hi list,

I have a nvidia gt 520 and i'm having hard time to make the sound working through hdmi. I'm using the latest drivers from nvidia with the latest fedora kernel.

# aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC892 Analog [ALC892 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 1: ALC892 Digital [ALC892 Digital]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 7: HDMI 1 [HDMI 1]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

i try these two commands :

# aplay -D plughw:1,3 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav
# aplay -D plughw:1,7 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav

No error is reported, but i don't have sound too ...

Any idea how i can get sound ? This box was in Ubuntu before and the sound worked well.

Thanks

HDMI Audio Stub
Both channels are at 100% ... I can see sound activity when a video is playing, but i can't heard the sound.

If it didn't say "Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output ..." You're boned.

Re: Fedora 16 HDMI sound

I am having the exact same issue but have found no resolution that worked. I have posted a question out there to find out if anyone has gotten this card to work. If the answer is no I will post a report with alsa. I'm not convinced this card is working.

If I do find a solution I will be sure to post it here.

Good luck

Re: Fedora 16 HDMI sound

I have been able to make it works, in fact, with the latest nvdia driver it works using hw 1,7.

Thumbs up Re: Fedora 16 HDMI sound

Sweet! I am glad to know there is hope. Besides getting latest nvidia driver is there anything else you had to do? Are you using fedora?

I might not have the latest driver but I shouldn't be far behind as I installed recently.

Thanks

I'm with Fedora 17, using nvidia 295.59 and the kernel 3.4.2-4.fc17 ... I did nothing special to make it works.

Try this one, it works for me:

Interestingly, aplay doesn't work for me, but speaker-test works.

Good luck!

11. Issues In PulseAudio
11.1. Under-Enumeration of HDMI Devices

PulseAudio only creates a device for the first HDMI output of a given sound card. This means HDMI audio can only be used via PulseAudio if your monitor just happens to be connected to the first active stream on your GPU. This is often not the case. In a mailing list conversation, it was agreed in principle that this needs to be fixed, but no fix is yet in place. See the trouble-shooting section below for methods to work around this issue.

http://www.mail-archive.com/pulseaud.../msg07433.html


The simple fix is to just plug your HDMI-device (monitor, amplifier or whatever) in the first HDMI/DVI port (the other one you're currently using)
