I have a Nvidia GTS 450 GPU with HDMI. I want to have the audio on my TV that’s connected with HDMI cable. But for some reason I’m not able to get the audio working. The card has its own audio chip. In Yast and pulseaudio I can see the card. But when I select it for playing audio it will not play on my TV.
Changing the cable doesn’t work and don’t know what to do. Every thing on the internet I have tried doesn’t work. Is there someone how can help me?
Here are some settings (if you need more just ask):
Using openSuSE 11.4
I don’t have an HDMI setup so I can’t offer much in the line of advice, other than suggest you install pulse audio volume control app (pavucontrol) and then the 1st time you go to use any multimedia player, launch pavucontrol, and use its various configure, output device, and playback tabs to tune that application with HDMI with pulse. Do not forget in tab output device under SHOW to show all output devices, and under the playback tab SHOW to select all streams.
Both don’t work.
The pulseaudio one I had done myself.
And the solution of the Toshiba is for old style HDMI in the new FEMI cores this was fixed as far as I know…
So my card is in pulseaudio and can be selected. But there is no sound.
If I run speaker-test -c 2 -r 48000 -D hw:1,3 It starts shows the same thing as when I’m doing it to my normal soundcard but again no sound.
Let me tell you that I have tried this on a nVIDIA GTS 240 and found that while you can get stereo to work, I could never get Dolby Digital to work, not even in Windows where my Sony 5.1 receiver told me I had Dolby Digital 2/0, which is basically stereo. If you want to know my opinion, I would use the computer built-in audio and forget about the HDMI audio from this video card. I have an HTPC setup with a nVIDIA GTX460 video card and I just use the built-in PC optical audio out taken straight to my Sony 5.1 Receiver. My LG TV does also includes optical and Coax audio input, but I just took out the analog stereo audio out form the built-in motherboard audio to the TV if I wanted to hear standard sounds without turning on the Sony Receiver. I say give up on HDMI and find another way.
Out of curiosity, with your HDMI output connected and setup the way YOU think is best, run the diagnostic script:
and select the share/upload option to upload the output to the internet/alsa paste site and post here the website-address/url that the script will give when after it is 100% complete.
If you have no internet access to do this, then run the script with the no upload option:
which will create a file in /tmp/alsa-info.txt and copy that file’s contents and paste it to SUSE Paste and submit it there and again post here the website/URL address where the output is located.
Also provide screen prints of your pavucontrol gui settings (config, output-devices, and playback, ensure you have SHOW selected properly in those tabs as applicable) and also the contents of ANY config files that you may have edited. If the files are too big then paste their contents on SUSE Paste and post here the website/URL address where the file contents are located.
I found the solution while reading the output of alsa-info.sh. Alsa found two hardware profiles one on hw1,3 and one on hw1,7. Pulse only found the one on hw1,3. I forced pulse to use hw1,7 and now its fixed.
I also have problem with HDMI. My computer has another sound output from the motherboard. Sound working fine from that.
Recently I am using my LCD TV as a replacement of my old monitor. I am using HDMI cable from my graphic card (NVIDIA GT 440) to LCD TV.
I tried with pavucontrol, I can see the slide moving if i use HDMI output sound but no sound come from my TV.
Digital Stereo (IEC958)Output + Analog Stereo Input
4 Digital Stereo Duplex (IEC958)
Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output + Analog Stereo Input
6 Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output
Analog Stereo Input
GF108 High Definiton Audio Controller, Profile tab has 2 choices:
Digital Stereo (HDMI) output
Based on that, i think pulse has not see all of hw:01–hw:1,9 ? Is that correct?
I tried toplay again with pavucontrol and now my VLC sound stop working after around 10 minutes play but Kaffein works fine. Is there any relation with what i do , changing configuration in pavucontrol and i forget to turn in back to correct setting?
