NO SOUND from headphones on HP Pavilion dv7-6c95dx(arch linux)


Hey Everyone. I have an HP Pavilion dv7-6c95dx laptop with beats audio and dual audio jacks. The speakers work fine, but there is no sound through the jack, which to me is more important than the speakers. I tried the models given by the Arch wiki to no avail. Changing the models to the one's suggested did little to solve my issues, one even turned off my speakers.

Running cat /proc/asound/card*/codec* | grep Codec outputs:
Code:
Codec: IDT 92HD81B1X5
Codec: Intel CougarPoint HDMI
Code:
$ lspci | grep -i Audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 05)
and cat /proc/asound/card*/codec* | grep name outputs:

Check if alsa-utils and linux-sound-base are installed, alsamixer maybe have volume all the way down,
have you tried alsactl init ? Somewhere to start.

Regards

I have just checked and can verify that these options are installed and I've maxed all my sound settings in alsamixer. The speakers work fine, it's the headphones that are the issue... In fact alsamixer doesn't have options for my headphones :S

Alsactl init outputted(but did not fix anything):
Code:
Found hardware: "HDA-Intel" "Intel CougarPoint HDMI" "HDA:111d7605,103c165b,00100105 HDA:80862805,80860101,00100000" "0x103c" "0x165b"
Hardware is initialized using a generic method
Thanks for the help

Correct that! My sound works! thank you so much! I guess "alsactl init" was the missing key? Will I have to run this on each reboot?

Edit: Correction again... It seems when I unplug my headphones I lose it again :S so I have to run this command each time I put my headphones in, or is there a way to fix that?

Hopefully not, usually it only takes one shot, try also alsactl store.

Question Beats audio won't work with Linux 12.04

I have installed Ubuntu Linux on every computer I have owned going back to Ubuntu 7. I have never had issues with sound until I purchased an HP P7-1240 desktop with Beats Audio. I can't get either the speaker or headphones to work. Beats tells me it is an HP problem. HP tells me to try Beats. It doesn't seem as though Beats audio will ever provide sound for my computer. I've decided the most expedient solution is to replace the sound card with one that is compatible with both Windows 7 and Linux 12.04. Can someone tell me where I can find a list of known compatible sound cards for use with Linux 12.04? Or, has anyone found a solution to the Beats problem?
