Thread: NO HDMI sound

  1. #1

    Default NO HDMI sound

    Hi all, I have this 2 devices in my laptop:

    00:03.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor HD Audio Controller (rev 06)
    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 8 Series/C220 Series Chipset High Definition Audio Controller (rev 05)


    and the HDA Intel HDMI ( Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor HD Audio Controller) have no soud . In alsamixer and in pulseaudio volume control it also is marked as unplugged, as you can see in the 2 images below

    What should i do to put it to work?

    Thanks you all

    Hi, first of all (just to be 100% sure) check this with another HDMI cable. If it is still not working please provide the output from the following commands:

    Code:
    aplay -l
    aplay -L
    lsmod | grep snd
    (the last one should be executed as root, to check if proper kernel modules were loaded)

    Usually the problems with HDMI sound are related to the output selection (internal speakers are always on top), especially in KDE it was quite uncomfortable.

    Check in volume control other HDMI devices (there should be several) - in my case the one that is used after I connect HDMI to the laptop is HDMI2 and the rest is unplugged just like on your screenshot. The easiest way to check is via VLC:
    1. Open some video or music in VLC
    2. Connect HDMI cable
    3. In VLC menu go to Audio -> Audio Device -> select proper HDMI output

    When you hear the sound then you can select the proper HDMI device in system volume control for other applications.

    Basically the system should autodetect to which device you connected the cable. If the system does not detect that HDMI is connected at all it can be hardware or kernel driver problem.

    Hi RafneQ,

    Thanks for your response. Below i send the output of the commands you suggest.

    about the question of my post, i am sorry because i dont explained with many details, and the to be exact,
    i dont have a hdmi cable connecting my pc to another device.

    The question is that i have the 2 devices identified in my post, both using the driver snd_hda_intel, and i cant get the hdmi sound of the related device.
    i suppose that, even badly, that is a driver or something similar question, because when i used windows i installed de hp/intel driver and the sound got fine.

    thanks for your help and attention.

    If you haven't already tried this and you're running KDE the easiest way to select the sound card is to do it through

    System Setting -> Audio & Video -> Audio Hardware Setup.

    Select your hardware. (should include HDMI output under 'profiles' if available)

    You could also install pavucontrol which allows you to do this more conveniently perhaps if you're switching between them frequently. You can also select hardware through the mixer in recent Plasma versions.

    The default sound card Setting can also be modified through Yast.

    Hopefully this will help if you don't have a configuration issue.

    FrankyU2,

    thanks for your help.

    I had already tried some things similar to those you suggest, with yast, Audio & Video and pavucontrol, but in hardware profiles the hdmi is given as unplugged

    1) If I've understood your opening comments properly, you can't get any sound output? You mentioned in your earlier reply that you don't have HDMI cables connected, so am I correct in understanding that you're trying to get sound output on internal laptop speakers instead? If not, which device would you like to get sound output on?
    i dont have a hdmi cable connecting my pc to another device.

    The question is that i have the 2 devices identified in my post, both using the driver snd_hda_intel, and i cant get the hdmi sound of the related device.
    2) What is returned by the following?
    Code:
    pacmd list-cards
    From that information we can check the currently active profile and perhaps provide further guidance.

    Well card 0 only has HDMI outputs, so none of this is surprising to me (unless I'm missing something). Only card 1 (pertaining to the 8 Series/C220 Series Chipset High Definition Audio Controller) offers analog output (to support the internal laptop speakers).

    Can you send this command in an xterm/konsole, and advise if it gives any sound ?
    Code:
    aplay -D hw:1,0 -vv /usr/share/sounds/alsa/test.wav
    Please post here any errors you get.

    If it gives no sound it could also be a mixer misconfiguration.

    If I understand you correctly here (please clarify), you are able to get audible sound via the laptop speakers when appropriately configured? It seems to me that your confusion is about HDMI output (and you have no HDMI devices connected).
