One HDMI falls-back to analog, the other doesn't; none produce audio in TV


I have a fallback to analog (internal) sound issue whenever I select one of my HDMI devices but there is no fallback to the analog ALC272 device whenever I choose the other, nor is there any audio coming from the TV to which I am connected via HDMI. My "aplay -l" is:
Code:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC272 Analog [ALC272 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 7: HDMI 1 [HDMI 1]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

ls -l /dev/dsp* might be interesting.

They should be lined up as dsp0 dsp1, & dsp2 and summed at /dev/dsp. Some distros take shoprtcuts, especially if you fitted something after installing.

Not too interesting:
Code:
crw-rw----+ 1 root audio 14, 3 dic 25 16:52 /dev/dsp
I ran it without the HDMI connected from my laptop to the TV. Thanks

Wait a second, I'm asleep. They all are card 0. So you have ONE soundcardn and it's working. Multiple devices usually exist on a soundcard - blaster, opl3, synth, game port, etc. It's showing 2 hdmi ports. Check volumes and mutes in alsamixer.

That could be the problem. The two HDMI ports do not show in alsamixer even when I have my HDMI cable connecting my laptop to the TV. Thanks

Another poster here suggested that I add
Code:
options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=0xfff2
to '/etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf', and it seemed to make HDMI show in alsamixer now.

Sound, to me is still a bit of 'tweak and poke and hope it comes alive' If someone has aq good idea, try it. HDA Intel also needs a codec, and I would google setting up hdmi devices.
