    No HDMI sound output device after upgrading 20.04

    After upgrading from 18.04 to 20.04 I can't see HDMI audio as a choice on the sound settings.
    Sound settings look like this:

    I can hear sound by running this:


    Code:
    aplay -D plughw:0,3 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav

    However there is no option for HDMI. There used to be a "Oland/Hainan/Cape Verde/Pitcairn HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 7000 Series]" option for HDMI output in 18.04

    I have the exact opposite problem - 20.04 upgrade lost headphones and kept HDMI, which I don't use. I can get it back by

    $sudo alsa force-reload

    which might work for you too. But I don't know how to make it work right the first time it loads.

    Thank you for your reply but unfortunately running that command doesn't change anything.
