No audio over HDMI on AMD-NVIDIA laptop

Has anyone tried fixing this issue? I have successfully fixed my video issue here: HP Pavilion with AMD Ryzen 5 external display setup but now I also need the audio through the HDMI to work as I do a lot of presentations.

I'm ready to provide any info you need to help solve this issue

Here are some outputs from the commands below

Tried following [SOLVED] HDMI Video Output Works But No Audio (Nvidia GPU) / Multimedia and Games / Arch Linux Forums but it seems I don't have an EDID file but I have codec#0

ls -la  /proc/asound/card0/

Also, the new default audio engine is Pipewire instead of PulseAudio as its now a viable drop-in replacement

Some more commands for your perusal

$ for p in /sys/class/drm/*/status; do con=${p%/status}; echo -n "${con#*/card?-}: "; cat $p; done
eDP-1: connected
HDMI-A-1: disconnected
HDMI-A-2: connected

Could this be the issue cause I recently did a system upgrade? :thinking:

Each case may be different (until it is not).
Start from the beginning and get your system info (read the topic you have initially posted and get the idea). Especially this

Pipewire is a new thing and pulseaudio is not a common Linux knowledge (on troubleshooting).
Is pipewire installed on your system? Post relevant info and command output.

Check your BIOS available settings on GPU and Audio.
Read your laptop User Manual!!
