Re: No sound when using Nvidia hdmi

hi,

i had the same problem on with the following configuraton:
- fedora 14 (2.6.35.11-83.fc14.x86_64)
- geforce gt 210: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210] (rev a2)
- nvidia driver: kmod-nvidia-2.6.35.11-83.fc14.x86_64-260.19.36-1.fc14.1.x86_64
- pluseaudio: pulseaudio-0.9.21-7.fc14.x86_64

and here is my solution:
1. check the hardwareid's: aplay -l
2. test the sound: aplay -D plughw:1,7 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Rear_Center.wav
3. configure pulseaudio: vim /etc/pulse/default.pa -> load-module module-alsa-sink device=plughw:1,7
4. set soundsettings in alsamixer and unmute the nvidia channels
5. save the alsamixer settings, in my case i saved the onboard and the nvidia sound settings:
/sbin/alsactl store 0 alsamixer_config_0
/sbin/alsactl store 1 alsamixer_config_1
6. configure fedore to restore the settings on every startup: vim /etc/rc.local ->
/sbin/alsactl restore 0 alsamixer_config_0
/sbin/alsactl restore 1 alsamixer_config_1

i hope that helped also other people or myself when i lost the informations :-)

greetings
gregor

It looks like your HDMI devices are hw:0,3 and hw:0,7 and hw:0,8 and hw:0,9

How about installing pulse audio volume control (pavucontrol) and then look under the configuration tab for pavucontrol for any of those devices and configure it.

To try and help the above poster these are the steps i took.

In a terminal type "alsamixer -v all" without the quotes.
Go to your hdmi device by hitting f6 and then selecting the device. Every thing you see in there make sure you unmute them. M = mute and 00 = unmute.

Next you need to find witch channel the audio is running on.
Typing cat /proc/asound/card0/eld#3.0 <-- change the card0 to the hdmi card. Then cat each eld# until you find the one that has you're monitor listed in it. Mine said lg tv on the third line from the top as an example.

Once you found the monitor listed you will then need to use one of these eld#0.0 -> 0x101, eld#1.0 -> 0x102, eld#2.0 -> 0x104, eld#3.0 -> 0x108

open up /etc/modprobe.d/dist-alsa.conf
add a line similar to this.
Options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=0 probe_mask=0x108

change the probe_mask=(this) to the appropriate number for you're setup.

Worse case scenario you could just try all four set of numbers one at a time until it works. Make sure to reboot after each change to make sure they take effect. For my piece of mind i did one extra reboot to make sure i didn't lose the audio.
you are amazing. I love you. Thank you x 1000
