HDMI audio: no sound

Hey,

as the title says, I cant use my speakers connected to my monitor, which itself is connected to my computer via displayport. The speaker is recognized by alsa but when selecting it, the speaker remains silent.
HDMI audio runs flawlessly on both the ubuntu live system and windows 10, so it shouldnt be related to the hardware.
What I already tried:

  • $ aplay -D plughw:X,Y /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav where X is the card and Y one of the devices as listed by $ aplay -l. Needless to say, I didnt hear a sound for all values of Y.

  • Rebooting the monitor, didnt help either

  • replacing pulseaudio by pipewire and pipewire-pulse. As expected, still no sound.

Some information regarding my system:
DE: KDE Plasma 5.21
Kernel: Zen-Kernel and LTS-Kernel, no noticable difference
GPU: AMD Radeon RX 580

Anyone some ideas to fix this?

Re: HDMI audio: no sound

Which kernel on Ubuntu? On attempted playback what's your

sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*
sudo dmesg | grep -E 'snd|amdgpu'
aplay -l
pacmd list-cards
pacmd list-sinks
pacmd list-sink-inputs

post these in

Re: HDMI audio: no sound

looks ok, for all intents and purposes you should be getting audio.

But what we do see here that you are passing iommu and amdgpu feature mask parameters, have you tried without explicitly setting those?

Re: HDMI audio: no sound

Just looked at the output in detail. In $ pacmd list-sinks only my second monitor is listed under "ports" of the first card, yet my speakers are plugged into the primary monitor. Might this be the issue? I'll try booting without nonessential boot parameters as soon as I'm home.

EDIT: removing all non-essential boot parameter didn't fix the issue.

Re: HDMI audio: no sound

I investigated this a little further and as it turns out, hdmi audio has been working all the time but not the way I want it to.
I just figured out my secondary monitor has some inbuilt speakers and when unmuting them, audio works except the sound quality is poor as we're talking about some cheap inbuilt speakers.
At this point, in Ubuntu I can switch the output port between my two monitors with my primary monitor being selected by default. Yet in my Arch-install my primary monitor isn't detected as I mentioned in my post above.

Any ideas how to get this to work?
