Thread: No HDMI Audio on nVidia GeForce/nForce iGPU on mb ASUS P5N7A-VM OpenSuse 11.2 or 11.3

  1. #1

    Default No HDMI Audio on nVidia GeForce/nForce iGPU on mb ASUS P5N7A-VM OpenSuse 11.2 or 11.3

    I have an ASUS P5N7A-VM motherboard and was using Optical out for sound without issues running OpenSuse 11.2. I then got rid of my receiver and wanted to just use HDMI sound. I couldn't get it to work so I upgraded to OpenSuse 11.3. I simply went to the Sound control panel applet and changed it to Internal Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI). I can not get any sound from it on OpenSuse 11.3 either. I have ran sound tests from the command line "speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav" which all run without errors, but nothing comes out of the speakers.

    I have ran the suggestion of one post "alsa-info.sh" and here are my results:

    I have also tried the following post which did not resolve the problem since it seems to be Ubuntu based. I have undid everything from the post as well to make sure I don't stray to far from normal.

    Are you using Gnome or KDE ? If using KDE, ensure the settings/order of devices in KMENU > Configure Desktop > Multimedia is the same as the order of devices in YaST > Hardware > Sound

    Anyone else have any ideas? I do not want to go back to Ubuntu cause OpenSuse is so much easier and better to use. I also use iFolder and would miss that as well but I can't use this without sound since it acts as my HTPC. But looks like there are fixes for this issue on Ubuntu so I may have to as a last resort.

    I might be able to help with KDE, but not Gnome. I'm not familiar with Gnome.

    I switched to KDE and checked the device order and in Yast Sound I have one device but I have 3 devices in Multimedia. I tried changing the order but it didn't so anything. In Multimedia I have:

    HDA Nvidia, Nvidia HDMI (HDMI Audio Output)
    HDA Nvidia(ALC 1200 Digital)
    HDA Nvidia(ALC 1200 Analog)

    In Yast Sound I have:

    MCP79 High Definition Audio

    I don't know much about these devices and alsa support provided.

    Check if the nvidia audio devices appear via

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -vv
    This short thread dealt with a similar issue (openSUSE 11.2). I'm wondering if an alsa upgrade might be necessary?

    I looked up the motherboard and it is said to use the Realtek ALC1200 so I am sure this is where the audio is being sent out through the HDMI connector. I read the following suggestion when going into the mixer:

    ... go into the volume control, on the switches tab and deselect Headphone and select both IEC958 and 'IEC958 Default PCM' to get it to work ...
    Further, I found suggestions to add the option "options snd-hda-intel model=auto probe_mask=1", perhaps in the file /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf file, but I am not sure about that.

    Thank You,

    Don't forget to enable your mixer's IEC958 controls. From the output of the diagnostic script in your first post, they were disabled.
