With Kernel 5.4 hdmi sounds no available
« on: 2020/01/19, 17:07:58 »
I have this problems since few months and after a lot of testing, purge pulseaudio and so on I finished the idea for other debugging.So looking on reddit I found this and I was thinking, ehi I update always the kernel and maybe the problem is that because I didn't changed anything else.
So I installed linux-headers-5.3.14-towo.1-siduction-amd64 and now the audio on hdmi is back again.I just wanted to share here in case there is someone else with the issue and to report it.
PS: I was using the latest 5.4.11 kernel version.

Issues with pulseaudo I believe you.

Installing header files of a kernel, using a different kernel version, is definitely not the solution. Probably you have unknowingly changed something else at the same time.

Just to add more information:
  • Pulseaudio detect the HDMI output
  • Purged pulseaudio, removed and reinstalled, removed the folder in config, restarted pulseaudio also with log, I don't have any asound.rc (all of them multiple times)
  • In some cases the audio was available only selecting HDMI surround option but there was a delay with the video
  • In pavucontrol the audio on HDMI was available (the bar was moving) with no audio on the TV
  • Tried with different TVs without success
I tried installing that kernel without changing anything on pulseaudio, restart and now the audio was working.I have a Intel Haswell for HDMI on a laptop with 2 video cards and one is a Nvidia card.
My test with another kernel was the unique option that I didn't try, it is the first time that I did it.
Everything was updated to the latest version.
