I have Asus M3A78-EM motherboard, according to the manual it has AMD 780G/SB700 chipset.
I have installed Jauntu on that.

I can hear sound over HDMI, if I use VLC.
I can't hear music, Video sound from XBMC. However I can hear clicking, shuffling sound on my TV via HDMI on XBMC.


I tried following trick and it seems it worked, however next day morning I turn ON my PC and I see my sound issues are back

Please note, I am using TV for sound, not any receiver.

Here are some details of my system:

Hi Folks,

I found the solution from XBMC forum. The issue was totally with XBMC, since I can use HDMI sound via VLC, aplay, even XBMC (clicking, shuffling sound).

Audio output: Digital
Default audio device: hdmi (alt2 "plug:hdmi" alt3 "plughw:1,3")
Passthrough audio device: hdmi
Downmix to stereo: Yes

I have to choose alt3 and then things just worked. (hdmi, plug:hdmi doesn't work for my mobo).
