HDMI Audio - HDMI unplugged

Having trouble getting HDMI audio to work on ATI HD7850 (Southern Islands) Graphics card. I have enabled the audio module and running kernel :3.11.4-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat Oct 5 21:22:51 CEST 2013 x86_64 GNU/Linux. Using ALSA and Pulseaudio and xf86-video-ati graphics drivers.

the hdmi out is listed in aplay but no sound is output. The device is shown as unplugged in pavucontrol despite hdmi video working correctly.  I have tried the wiki pages for troubleshooting unsuccessfully. i have tried every combination of card and device in aplay to test for output.

Is there a way to force hdmi to be plugged in? I believe that somehow the snd_hda_intel driver is interpreting the device as unavailable and therefore not sending the audio stream out.

Below are some relevent commands and there outputs. Thanks for any help or insights.

Re: HDMI Audio - HDMI unplugged

It is obvious but maybe you missed it. Have you set digital out in amixer/alsamixer? Something similar to:

amixer -c HDMI sset IEC958 unmute

Re: HDMI Audio - HDMI unplugged

Thanks for the suggestions. I looked at the other posts mentioned and they claim that it fixed itself after the update. Unfortunately my issue remains even post-update. Anyone have any suggestions? This is what pavucontrol looks like. Note that despite everything being plugged in and the hdmi display working it shows it as unplugged.

Re: HDMI Audio - HDMI unplugged

I have tried the WIKI solution without any success unfortunately. Should xrandr --props return an audio option normally? Looks like both of us are missing that option.

-> Pluc - Does your xorg logs show the same line: "(WW) RADEON(0): Option "Audio" is not used" even after enabling radeon audio?

Re: HDMI Audio - HDMI unplugged

I'm having an identical issue with Radeon HD 7560D. Switched from catalyst driver (where HDMI audio was working) to xf86-video-ati.

I have set radeon.audio=1 in my kernel options. aplay -D plughw:0,3 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav "plays" without error, however there is no actual sound.

Didn't get home yet so I didn't try to explicitly set Option "Audio", I'll try when I can. Otherwise nothing in the log.

Re: HDMI Audio - HDMI unplugged

Awesome to hear the new kernel works for you. I think i will wait for it to leave testing but i am hoping it fixes my issue as well. Thanks for sharing.

Re: HDMI Audio - HDMI unplugged

Updated to 3.12 kernel tonight.

Now everything seems "normal", pavucontrol shows "Plugged in", but still no sound. I checked all solutions on the wiki, I don't know where to look now.

➜  ~  uname -r
3.12.0-1-ARCH

➜  ~  cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log |grep -i audio
[  1982.753] Kernel command line: \vmlinuz-linux root=UUID=11926c81-9c24-48a6-8fee-812e2dc6f7c9 PARTUUID=409dfc5a-2654-47e7-8ed9-fc96f3ea2d14 ro radeon.audio=1 initrd=\initramfs-linux.img
[  1983.052] (WW) RADEON(0): Option "Audio" is not used

➜  ~  dmesg |grep -i audio

[    2.540076] hda-intel 0000:01:00.1: Handle VGA-switcheroo audio client

➜  ~  systool -v -m radeon |grep audio      
    audio               = "1"

Also speaker-test -Dhdmi:HDMI was giving me a "Device or ressource busy". Now as I was writing this, I got something new :

➜  ~  speaker-test -Dhdmi:HDMI
speaker-test 1.0.27.2
Le périphérique de lecture est hdmi:HDMI
Les paramètres du flux sont 48000Hz, S16_LE, 1 canaux
Utilisation de 16 octaves de 'pink noise'
Le nombre (1) de canaux est indisponible à la lecture: Argument invalide
Échec de la configuration des paramètres matériel: Argument invalide

Translation :
The number of channels (1) is not available : Invalid argument
Hardware parameters configuration failed : Invalid argument

So with : speaker-test -Dhdmi:HDMI -c 2

I got sound (youhou smile)

But then again, while writing :

➜  ~  speaker-test -Dhdmi:HDMI -c 2                 
speaker-test 1.0.27.2
Le périphérique de lecture est hdmi:HDMI
Les paramètres du flux sont 48000Hz, S16_LE, 2 canaux
Utilisation de 16 octaves de 'pink noise'
Erreur d'ouverture à la lecture: -16,Périphérique ou ressource occupé

Translation : Error while openning : -16, Device or resource busy

Well I guess we are close

Re: HDMI Audio - HDMI unplugged

Kernel 3.12-1 solved my problems as well. :-)

As for your issues the divece may be busy because it is being used by another process. were you trying to play audio while running the test or making changes in pavucontrol? I know i have seen this issue in the past and it was because some process was trying to use the device while the test was running.
