No audio over HDMI

Hello!
As said in the title, I have no audio over HDMI.
I tried on 2 computers, the one had it’s HDMI port wired to the Nvidia card, and the other one on the CPU. And I have the audio output Speakers, but there’s no audio.
Thanks in advance!

As normal, please provide inxi -Fxxxz output (as text).

Also, make sure you have tried at least the two standard Arch kernels (linux and linux-lts).

I also tried the 3 kerels I have. (Zen, LTS, and normal) But they didn't worked.

Please :slight_smile:

Have you checked your audio output settings?

What outputs are available?

For example using pavucontrol:

I don't have the app (but can get it in PacMan), the only this I have for audio, is in the settings.

Please do. pavucontrol exposes things in a common way across all DEs, and can even show settings that the DE hides.

I'll do it, and hope it will work for my Linux presentation. I'll tell you if it works. :+1:

Good news.
It worked!

Thank you! :+1:t2:

If you have a dig through the KDE settings the same options should be available somewhere, but pavucontrol just makes it easy. :grin:
