ATI HDMI Audio not working

Hi,

I have followed the instructions for "HDMI Audio" under https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ATI for my Acer Aspire One 522 Netbook. I also made sure I had done the steps for "Early KMS start" on the same wiki page. I can't seem to get the audio working for my HDMI out. The volume is up and the xrandr lists my device fine and I can us the following command on my Netbook speakers but they don't seem to go through my TV speakers:

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

I know the speakers on the TV are OK and that other HDMI devices can play sound through the TV speakers. What could I be missing here?

Thanks in advance,

Kerdum

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

If 'plughw:0,3' goes through your netbook speakers, maybe you need to pick other hardware number?

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

What does this give:

aplay -l

(That's a lower-case "L", not a number 1 or an upper-case "i".)

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

I have even tried the instructions found under https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ad … s_Not_Work

Anyone have any clues?

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

Also, when I use AlsaMixer (v1.0.25) and switch to the HD-Audio Generic it shows only one value that is always set to 00 (I can't change it) and it is labeled as "S/PDIF" . I can only mute it with the "M" key or unmute it. Up and DOWN keys do not change the value.

The Chip is set as ATI r6xx HDMI

Hope that helps.

How closely did you follow the instructions? Certainly, you need to modify parts to suit your own system. Please show:

find /etc/alsa/ -type f -printf "\n# %M %p\n" -exec cat {} \;

Hi thanks for your reply. I do not have a /etc/alsa directory. I checked the wiki again and I don't see when I would have created one. Is that odd?

Ah, sorry. I had in mind that you followed the subsection "Using udev to automatically turn HDMI audio on or off". Did you do the part of the how-to that says to set "radeon.audio=1"?

I see your "aplay -l" has your HDMI sitting on a different card to your laptop speakers, and it doesn't show up as ATI. What do these show?:

lspci -nn
lspci -mvk | grep -iC8 audio
lsmod
grep -i ^modules /etc/rc.conf

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

Could you confirm that you've set "radeon.audio=1", say as a flag to the kernel at boot time?

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

Hi Kerdum,

Were you able to fix it alrdy? I am having the same problem:
Wrestler HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 6250/6310]  in combination with SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)
only "S/PDIF" in alsamixer and also set radeon.audio=1 as kernel flag
aplay -D plughw:0,3 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav , does not give errors, but no sound either..

>>user# cat /proc/asound/card*/code*|grep Codec 
Codec: ATI R6xx HDMI                               
Codec: Conexant CX20590

So i have the conexant driver from intel hd audio (kernel configuration),

No problem getting audio through laptop-speakers / headphones-jack. But when trying to get audio through the hdmi cable: silence ;(


and about your question "Wondering what that means?" : i think it is because both soundcard use the snd_hda_intel module. one with the conexant-driver and the other with the "generic"(?).



p.s. my xorg settings:

Section "Module"    
	Load "glx"
	Load "dri"
EndSection
Section "Device"
	Identifier "r"
	Driver "radeon"
    Option      "HDMI" "all"
    Option      "Audio" "on"

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

There's no HDMI audio support for HD6xxx cards.

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

So it seems hdmi-audio should work with the new 3.3 kernel

Yeah, with Evergreen (HD5xxx). Nothing has changed for Northern Islands (HD6xxx).

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

Evergreen = HD5430 - HD5970, all HD6000 not listed under Northern Islands, HD7350
Northern Islands = HD6450, HD6570, HD6670, HD6790 - HD6990, HD64xxM, HD67xxM, HD69xxM, HD7450 - HD7670

So it seems our HD6250/6310 are in fact evergreens, which have hdmi-audio output in 3.3 kernels... Will test it when i have and hdmi-tv nearby

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

I can confirm that HDMI audio is working !!! smile))  kernel 3.3.1.
Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Wrestler HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 6250/6310]

# aplay -l                                                                                                                                   (04-14 13:01)

xrandr --output LVDS --off --rotate normal --pos 0x0 --output HDMI-0 --mode auto
mplayer -ao alsa:device=hw=0.3 video.avi

and then there was sound from the tv with only the hdmi-cable attached.

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

Sooo I have the exact same hardware as klz above.

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

runs without issue and takes little over a second to run, but no sound is produced.

I have unmuted every alsa channel, my tv, etc.
I have the radeon.audio=1 flag set.
I tried "rebooting" my tv as per the advice in the ALSA page in the Arch wiki.

No idea what is going wrong... I downgraded to kernel 3.3.1 as per above, but was not the issue (using the latest in repos, 3.3.4).

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

@whatintheworldisthat: did you set the xorg and kernel settings just as in the post above?

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

I'm having the exact same problem with the exact same videocard (part of the AMD E-350 APU) as you guys and I can't get it figured out.

I have radeon.audio=1 in menu.lst
I added these settings from klz's post to xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
    Option      "HDMI" "all"
    Option      "Audio" "on"
EndSection
Section "dri"
	Group "video"
	Mode 0666
EndSection

I'm using the radeon driver, should I be using fglrx instead?
I only have the S/PDIF channel available in alsamixer, I disabled the other audio output in the bios to avoid confusion.
I'm running kernel 3.4.4-2-ARCH

output of lsmod|grep snd

snd_hda_codec_hdmi     23672  1
snd_hda_intel          24053  2
snd_hda_codec          94273  2 snd_hda_codec_hdmi,snd_hda_intel
snd_hwdep               6300  1 snd_hda_codec
snd_pcm                74958  3 snd_hda_codec_hdmi,snd_hda_codec,snd_hda_intel
snd_page_alloc          7217  2 snd_pcm,snd_hda_intel
snd_timer              18966  1 snd_pcm
snd                    58997  10 snd_hwdep,snd_timer,snd_hda_codec_hdmi,snd_pcm,snd_hda_codec,snd_hda_intel
soundcore               5410  1 snd

I know it works because I had it (semi) working in Chakra Linux which is actually using the 3.2 kernel, although sound would stop working after it was idle for about 12 hours and I would have to reboot.

Re: ATI HDMI Audio not working

Hi Brando,

Disabling audio outputs doesnt sound like a good idea.. i think i use another output than s/pdif (not sure on this). I haven't disabled any audio outputs in bios anyhow.
Yes radeon is fine, this is what i use.

Can you post the output of

aplay -l

What do the plughw aplay-command give you, silence, errors or ..?
Something else with hdmi-output does give you sound on your tv?

have you tried:

xrandr --output LVDS --off --rotate normal --pos 0x0 --output HDMI-0 --mode auto
mplayer -ao alsa:device=hw=0.3 video.avi

(i have the AMD E-450 btw)
