    Default Pulseaudio problem. Plasma. Tumbleweed.

    We upgraded our TV set to 4K and I switched to HDMI audio and had it configured and working on the computer connected to it.
    It is not running the Nvidia driver. Nouveau is what it's using.
    After a reboot it no longer works. No audio devices show up at all because the pulseaudio server is crashed and it's not restarting.
    I get this message when I try and open Pulseaudio Volume Control.
    (Screen shot at link. The forum software won't allow me to insert an image or nor will it follow that URL to it.)

    when I try and restart the server following the suggestion I get to following

    Code:
    flamebait@linux-6zio:~> start-pulseaudio-x11
    Connection failure: Connection refused
    pa_context_connect() failed: Connection refused
    
    Trying to locate the file referenced in the suggestion in /etc/x11/ or /etc/ is fruitless.
    Ideas?

    Try starting pulseaudio from a terminal (as user) like this
    Code:
    pulseaudio -k;pulseaudio --log-level=debug --verbose
    and capture what is reported.

    The log can be captured to a file if desired....
    Code:
    pulseaudio -k;pulseaudio --log-level=debug --log-time=1 --verbose > ~/pulseaudio.log 2>&1 &

    You might also try removing ~/.config/pulse/ (or at least renaming it), then restart pulseaudio and see if that helps.

    This with a reboot fixed it....
    Full audio is now working

    renamed pulse to ~/.config/pulse/ to ~/.config/pulse-old/ reconfigured, closed all configuration windows and rebooted.
    Great success.

    Thanks
