Getting HDMI audio working (ASUS P5E-VM HDMI mATX)

Hey everyone. So I'm trying to create a HTPC using this ASUS P5E-VM HDMI mATX motherboard with a 3.0 GHz E8400 Core 2 Duo and 4GB RAM. I've installed Arch 64-bit on it and have full 1080p video showing nicely on my HD TV with Gnome set up quite nicely. I've gone through the Wiki for the documentation for getting ALSA working but I cannot get any audio working. I have 3 outputs on this board, the line-out on the back, the headphones on the front and the HDMI audio on the back.
I admit I am an ALSA/Linux Audio newb but it seems like everything is set up properly comparing it to the Wiki document. I get very faint audio from the headphones but nothing else. I'd really like to get the HDMI audio working but I am completely and totally lost as to what to do. I don't even know what devices and modules I should be looking for. I'm pretty sure the sound chipset is Intel HDA Audio. Although, under Vista it comes back as Realtek audio controller.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

While searching for the solution myself I stumbled over this rather old thread and having found the solution it might be interesting for someone out there :-)
HDMI audio is working fine with the Asus P5E-V, the problem is that the IEC958 device has to be unmuted on the command line (since it is not showing in any mixer):
(1)amixer --card 0 |grep 958
Then unmute the devices (in my case to unmute "'IEC958',1" was sufficient):
(2)amixer --card 0 sset 'IEC958',0 unmute
(3)amixer --card 0 sset 'IEC958',1 unmute
(4)amixer --card 0 sset 'IEC958 Default PCM',0 unmute

  • How can i get the audio working again?

    Did a hard drive replacement on my ibook a few weeks ago and being as careful as i possibly could the audio connector still pulled off of the logic board. Even when the connector was off of the logic board i still had trouble separating the two pieces. I put a tiny drop of superglue on the bottom of the connector and pushed it back onto the logic board trying to make sure the metal pieces touched the board. It was in place perfectly and to my dismay there is no sound on the laptop through the built in speakers. The headphone port still works but the built-in's don't. What would be the best way to go about this? Would it be possible just to wire the headphone jack wires to the built-in speakers wires? Thanks a lot

    I think i found a pretty good temporary solution, in theory anyways. I took the cable off of a set of ipod cube speakers and stripped it to find three wires: red, blue, and copper. My plan is to splice this cable and the wires to the speakers inside of the ibook and then just run the headphone plug outside of the ibook and plug it into the headphone jack. It may look a little odd but if it works its better than having to plug in a set of external speakers which looks even more weird. My question is, i remember there only being a black and red wire coming from the ibook speakers but as i said earlier the wire from the cube speakers has blue, red, and copper. Does anyone know how i could splice the two together? I thought stereo channels had to have three wires (left, right, and ground)...are the ibook speakers only mono?

  • How to get bluetooth audio working

    I have the S10-3T, type 0651. Had it a few weeks.
    It has Bluetooth built in. I was able to recognise my Altec Lansing BackBeat (stereo headset). But when I played media, the sound didn't come through the headset.
    What do I need to download or do so that I can watch movies, listen to Rhapsody, etc... through the headset?
    Thanks.

    Hi and welcome..
    didnt use Bluetooth for audio  , but Try to look at windows system sound section,... like a receiver you have to choose where sound comes , think windows could that not know automatic  ...there should be in the a menue where you can  change to bluetooth device instead of internal Audio  ...

  • [Athlon64] Can anyone else with an RS480M2-IL get their audio working?

    Because I sure can't!
    The hardware is installed. The driver is installed. I play music, and I use Windows Sound Recorder to show me that the system is, indeed, playing music. All of that seems like a beautiful thing.
    I plug in the speakers, and nothing comes out.
    Any ideas? Is there a jumper I had to jump that went unjumped?

    Thanks dude, though that wasn't my problem.
    I'd actually been using both front and back audio to test. I figured I'd jumper those pins and see if I could just make do with only-back audio. When I pulled out the cable connecting the front audio, I found out that it had come unconnected to the front panel part.
    So your advice did indeed help! Just not the way it was meant to...

  • Can't get 4.1 working with ALSA and Intel card

    Hello everybody,
    My problem is simple, but I cannot find any solution for it.
    I have Arch Linux 64 bits installed with ALSA and a Intel onboard sound card
    I can get the audio working simply installing ALSA and unmutting the channels, but I get no sound at the rear speakers and the center speaker (subwoofer).
    I run:
    $ spearker-test -c 5
    And all I have is sound at the 2 front speakers.
    Looking at alsamixer I only saw configuration for 2,4 and 6 channels. I am currently using the configuration for 4 channels.
    I unmuted everything in alsamixer (playback) and nothing changed.
    $ aplay -l

    Thanks for the answer, tried this command, here is the output:

    The other HD Audio device is likely to be the Realtek ALC880 8-channel High Definition onboard sound. This is a bit of a decision point. If you plan on always using the AMD High definition Audio as your default ouput through an HD TV with HDMI out, then you can disable the Realtek HD audio device. Once that is done then restart the PC. Go to the Control panel and select sound, now sellect the AMD HDMI out and right-click and select it as the default. There should now be a green checkmark next to it. Now you can select Configure to test it.
    Kind regards,

  • I have an Retina display MacBook Pro with HMDI out port. I also have an HDMI to Component cable with Audio Plugs. How can I get HDMI out to work with this cable when plugged into the Component and Audio ports on my TV?

    I have an Retina display MacBook Pro with HMDI out port. I also have an HDMI to Component cable with Audio Plugs. How can I get HDMI out to work with this cable when plugged into the MacBook Pro and connected to the TVs Component and Audio in ports.

    Will not work.  To my knowledge, dual converting like that isn't supported.  The Mac must detect the connected video output device and that sort of info cannot be done across an analog component uni-directional connection.

    The receiver has two HDMI  inputs in the back.  However they say they are not for PC's.  Furthermore they must be set up by going to the home menu.    I tried everything, but I can not get the receiver to talk to the Apple TV. I even tried a connector that uses an HDMI to the Apple TV that has the other side of the cable as 5 RCA cables.  I could not get the receiver to see the Apple TV.   I have a newer TV in the house, it has no problem talking with the Apple TV.  But this older system seems to be handicapped in its ability to talk with the newer Apple TV system.
    My Email is [email protected] 
    Do you have any suggestions
    Thanks
    Bob

    I could not access the Apple TV on the television.   If I put the Apple TV directly into by TV, I have an external sound system (entertainment system), therefore I worry that I would by pass the audio.
    Thanks for taking your time to attempt to help!   Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • My samsung says video out from i pad is not supported. i am connecting with apple dock using hdmi. I do get the audio

    my samsung says video out from i pad is not supported. i am connecting with apple dock using hdmi. I do get the audio  any suggestions?

    Jeffrey-
    If the HDMI input to the Samsung is not compatible, does it have a VGA or composite input?  I have both the HDMI and VGA adapters for the iPad, which work with the small Vizio HDTV I tried.  I understand a composite video adapter is also available.

  • I cannot get HDMI to work on my ENVY SmartTouch 17

    Hi, I am trying to get HDMI to work on my HP Envy 17" Smarttouch (17t-J100 series) with WIndows 8.1. 
    I look in the Device Manager and I don't see an HDMI device. 
    I do see HDMI audio. 
    Video is with the Intel 4600 series adapter. 
    If I attach the HDMI cable to the notebook and turn on the TV (Visio 32") the notebook will see another monitor, but it is unknown and the TV will simply display no signal. I do have the correct HDMI port selected on the TV for the cable. 
    There should be an entry for HDMI in the device manager under video correct? 
    Thank in advance. 

    Hello Steves411,
    Welcome to the HP Forums!
    I understand the notebook is experiencing issues connecting to your TV with an HDMI connection. I'll do my best to assist you!
    To start troubleshooting, please provide the answers to all of my questions:
    1. Can the notebook connect to a normal monitor with that HDMI cable?
    2. Can a different notebook connect to the TV with that HDMI cable?
    3. Have you tried all of the suggestions in this document? Connecting a Monitor, Projector or TV (Windows 8)
    Please answer these questions and I can continue to help you further. Thanks and have a great day!

    You can connect the audio from your iMac to your TV using a mini jack (like headphones plug) to rca (regular red and white audio connectors used on every TV,DVD, etc) cable.
    On your TV, you need to be able to set the audio for the HDMI input you will use to "analog" and connect the rca end of the cable to the analog inputs on your TV.

  • Video does not work when I connect my Macbook to a TV using a thunderbolt to HDMI converter. Audio works fine.

    I've been trying to connect my macbook to an Insignia TV. The macbook recognizes the TV is connected and changes the display ratio accordingly, but it does so in a jittery way before landing on 1080i after some time.
    The audio works fine on the TV from the mac, but it's not picking up any video. When I go to System Preferences>Displays, I get two windows: one for the built-in display, one for the TV. I think this is why I'm not getting any video, but I don't know how to make it just so that the display is for the TV. The displays are mirrored, but I'm still not getting anything. Please help!

    Go into System Preferences, then Displays. There should be an option to click on the tv mirroring. Click it and see if it connects to the TV.
