Hi , I have no sound output on my workstation.
In Alsamixer it just shows one option
and that would be to mute or unmute <S/PDIF>
$ lspci | grep -i 'audio'
Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Cedar HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 5400/6300 Series]

$ aplay -l

$ cat /proc/asound/cards

HD-Audio Generic at 0xd0b40000 irq 43
$ cat /proc/asound/card0/codec\#0 | grep -i 'codec'
Codec: ATI R6xx HDMI
When i boot from a grml Live USB Stick
Alsamixer and sound seem to work out of the box
The Difference is that the card is recognized as HD-Audio-Generic in the Arch Install with Codec ARI R6xx HDMI
and when i boot from USB stick it is recognized as HDA Intel PCH with Codec Realtek ALC269VB and works
I googled arround and tried loading snd_hda_intel with different model options in /etc/modprobe.d/...
but nothing seems to work.
It would be nice if any of you have hint , how i can get the sound to work on my arch installation
Thanks in advance

When you get to alsamixer, press m to unmute the channels.
The problem is , i have no channels , there's only <S/PDIF> like i said
and unmuting it does nothing
Sorry my bad
solved by restoring bios defaults.
now the onboard sound works.
