    Default No hdmi audio ouput with kodi

    Hello,

    I'm running kodi on a Intel NUC and the audio is working fine when I use analog-stereo. But when I switch the sink with pacmd to hdmi, I get no audio output. Here is the pacmd list-sinks output
    pacmd list-sinks
    2 sink(s) available.

    What have you connected on HDMI output?

    I recommend using pavucontrol for this since it gives some visual output to see what is happening.

    HDMI goes trough via the graphics card. If you have both an Intel analogue and GPU then things may get confused. So need more info

    I have a TV connected via hdmi. The Intel NUC has analog and a GPU

    Default Re: No hdmi audio ouput with kodi

    Ok Intel confuses things using the same driver for analogue and HDMI

    I don't have instruction at the moment but basically you have to manually edit the configuration file. Oldcpu who knows this stuff better then I usually jumps in but have not seen him post for a while may be on vacation.

    In any case the solution has been posted may times maybe some else has the reference

    Thanks so far. Been trying a lot of stuff, but I still have the problem. But I realized that when I log in to kodi with my main user (I have an extra user starting kodi) I do have sound over hdmi.
    I looked at the logs and I noticed the following two different lines that might be interesting.
    NOTICE: PulseAudio: Opened device alsa_output.pci-0000_00_03.0.hdmi-stereo-extra1 in pcm mode with Buffersize 150 ms
    and
    NOTICE: PulseAudio: Opened device alsa_output.pci-0000_00_03.0.hdmi-surround in pcm mode with Buffersize 150 ms
    I don't know if this makes any difference.

    Oh, and I cannot start gnome with the user kodi so I can't start pavucontrol.
    I hope for some new input
