Ubuntu AMD Radeon HDMI Audio

All the new Ubuntu releases do not support HDMI Audio when using an AMD Radeon card.

You seem to have to use the proprietary AMD driver to get Radeon HDMI to work.

I would like to install Ubuntu 17.04 but I think hdmi audio issue is still an issue.

I would like to switch to another distro that does work on AMD Radeon HDMI audio out
of the box. Are there any distros that will work ?

AMD does supply proprietary drivers for linux, however, most distros do not provide them for licensing reasons. They may be available for what ever distro you have, but no guarantees; and not usually "out of the box". Windows speak.

You have not provided us with any details, what card do you have?

For Ubuntu, have a look at this link for more information.
