Thread: HDMI drivers for audio do not work.

  1. #1

    Default HDMI drivers for audio do not work.

    After running this command:
    /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh

    It out put this use "http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=b89b71b770014624bbca7298f492a8aee1c3900b" with diagnostic information for my audio devices/drivers.
    I know my HDMI cable and card/drivers work because it will play sound on my windows10 OS.

    I note that you have two sound card devices...

    Do you have the Pulse Audio Volume Control utility (pavucontol) installed? If not install that, and then check that the profile configuration is as required for HDMI output..

    This might be applicable to getting the HDMI device enabled as the first device....

    IIRC, "Tonga" devices require DC/DAL support in the amdgpu kernel driver for hdmi/dp audio ... its going to be introduced in kernel 4.15

    Okay, that looks as expected...
    Code:
    active profile: <output:hdmi-stereo>
    active profile: <output:iec958-stereo+input:analog-stereo>
    Tyler_K's advice is probably relevant here.
