no sound output ati hdmi


Hi folks,

I recently installed Fedora 13 x64 on HP 4310s with dualboot win7 x64. Connected to the amplifier by hdmi, got the picture on the projector but no sound output. win7 setup works just fine.

I also changed to hdmi-output in "sound preferences" in gnome with no result.


lscpi showes this:

Code:
Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M92 LP [Mobility Radeon HD 4300 Series]
01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RV710/730
is there a workaround for this, it would be nice not to switch forth and back from fedora to win7 each time I want to see a movie on the projector...

Is the correct audio device selected in pulse audio chooser ?
Is the sound turned up ?
Do you get analogue sound working ?
Have you installed any ATI drivers (proprietary or otherwise)

Have a read of this and see whether it helps.

Also, it may help to have these installed

Code:
yum install pulseaudio alsa-plugins-pulseaudio pulseaudio-esound-compat pulseaudio-libs pulseaudio-libs-glib2 pulseaudio-module-zeroconf pulseaudio-libs-zeroconf xmms-pulse pulseaudio-module-gconf wine-pulseaudio xine-lib-pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils pulseaudio-module-bluetooth gst-mixer padevchooser paman paprefs pavucontrol pavumeter
Or try this howto for F11

You do not want to be using the internal audio.

Unhappy same problem

Hello folks,

and best wishes for 2011 !

I have the same problem on my brand new Toshiba Satellite L630.

The soudcard is also a ATI HDMI :

[vlaugier@vince-tosh ~]$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: CONEXANT Analog [CONEXANT Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 1: Conexant Digital [Conexant Digital]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: HDMI [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: ATI HDMI [ATI HDMI]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0



[vlaugier@vince-tosh ~]$ lspci -v | grep Audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05)
[COLOR="rgb(255, 0, 255)"]01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RV710/730[/COLOR]

I have to reinstall pusleaudio as adviced here : http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=225660

[root@vince-tosh ~]# yum remove pulseaudio
[root@vince-tosh ~]# yum install pulseaudio alsa-plugins-pulseaudio pulseaudio-esound-compat pulseaudio-libs pulseaudio-libs-glib2 pulseaudio-module-zeroconf pulseaudio-libs-zeroconf xmms-pulse pulseaudio-module-gconf wine-pulseaudio xine-lib-pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils pulseaudio-module-bluetooth gst-mixer padevchooser paman paprefs pavucontrol pavumeter

and checked that the soundcard was unmuted
[root@vince-tosh ~]# alsamixer -c 1

But it does not help.

I suspect the problem is coming from Alsa because if I try to play a sound with aplay it works for the internal soundcard but not for the ATI HDMI :
try to play a wav sound for every card/device couple
[vlaugier@vince-tosh ~]$ aplay -v -Dplughw:1,3 -fcd /usr/share/kde4/apps/kolf/sounds/holeinone.wav
[vlaugier@vince-tosh ~]$ aplay -v -Dplughw:0,0 -fcd /usr/share/kde4/apps/kolf/sounds/holeinone.wav

if anyone has an idea, it will enlight this 2011 start !

My configuration :
[root@vince-tosh ~]# uname -a
Linux vince-tosh 2.6.35.10-74.fc14.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Dec 23 16:04:50 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Dude, your kernel needs a patch.

You have two options: upgrade your kernel to at least 2.6.36.1 (I'm using the last one - 2.6.37 in a slackware 13.1 box) or get the source from this kernel you're using and patch it (there's actually a patch for nvidia hdmi audio in kernel's git).

As I've read, pulseaudio won't help much, but I'm not the most expert in this issue.
