View Full Version : [ubuntu] No sound through HDMI in Lucid x64

May 2nd, 2010, 06:57 PM
I've searched all over and found no solutions so far, so I'm hoping you good people can help me troubleshoot.

I'm running an HDMI cable from my new HTPC to the TV. Video is beautiful, but there's no sound! What should I do?

I checked alsamixer, but when I switch to the relevant sound card ("HDA Nvidia"), it tells me "This sound device does not have any controls."

I'm happy to post the output of any relevant commands. Just let me know what you need!

Thank you!

Did you have HDMI audio out before 10.04? Getting audio through HDMI on Linux is rough at this stage to say the least, google around a bit and you will find some tutorials.

Honestly, after several days of going through such guides I just went out and bought an 1/8inch to RCA coord and called it a day ;)
