[SOLVED] Stuck at max volume

When I say "max volume" I mean like 1000% distorted ear blasting levels. I have pulseaudio and pavucontrol installed and everything looks normal but changing the volume in pavucontrol or by using pactl doesn't do anything. I tried deleting ~/.config/pulse and created a test user which experienced the same issue. I also swapped out my speakers for some headphones and it's still happening. My audio is over HDMI from an Nvidia GPU if that matters and my motherboard's onboard audio isn't working but this was my first time trying it so it may have never worked (no audio from it at all.)

Here's a pastebin with the output from "pactl list": https://pastebin.com/mQzT6WHG

Any ideas?

Re: [SOLVED] Stuck at max volume

I can confirm this, my audio is also stuck at 1000% at distorted ear blasting levels, changing the volume does not change anything.

Happened to me today after upgrading the kernel and nvidia drivers, using the linux-lts kernel the issue goes away. My audio output is over NVidia HDMI too.

EDIT:
Found the issue related to this on kernel bug tracker https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=205855

Same here. Went back to linux-5.4.2 (+nvidia-dkms), sound working again.

Re: [SOLVED] Stuck at max volume

Yep you guys are right. I installed linux-lts and nvidia-lts, reran "grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg" and I'm good to go for now. I suppose I should hold off on marking this as solved until it's officially patched?

edit: resolved by latest updates, marking as solved

Re: [SOLVED] Stuck at max volume

If https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/ke … 7901e7f9cb is not included in the 5.4.4 stable review you could open a bug on the arch bugtracker asking for it to be backported.
