No HDMI audio output option

when I connect another screen to my laptop using HDMI, I try to get audio through HDMI (because that screen is also plugged to a stereo sound system that can't be plugged to my laptop directly), but I can't get the audio to output through the HDMI cable.

about my previous problem about updating by using garuda-update it was fixed by using another network.

HDMI output does not show up in pavucontrol, or it does but there's no audio regardless?

no it doesn't even show in the settings. I tried to switch the output to HDMI but I only found the option for built-in speakers.

Does it show in pactl list short sinks or pactl list cards?

fish❯ pactl list short sinks
81	alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo	PipeWire	s32le 2ch 48000Hz	SUSPENDED
83	alsa_output.pci-0000_01_00.1.hdmi-stereo	PipeWire	s32le 2ch 48000Hz	SUSPENDED

pactl list cards output is somewhat verbose, try pactl list cards |grep -i hdmi.


edit: also see if "pavucontrol no hdmi" in your favourite search engine returns something useful.
For instance, you may have encountered the problem described here:
Pipewire-pulse no sound on HDMI / Newbie Corner / Arch Linux Forums
No HDMI audio with some Philips TVs (#3016) · Issues · PipeWire / pipewire · GitLab

Sadly, I don't know enough to help much, let's wait for some some audio expert...

I see the profiles are not available, let me see if I can find what it means... whoogles frantically...


This rings a bell, but I hope there's a way that does not involve downgrading the kernel:
[SOLVED] No profile available for HDMI audio / Multimedia and Games / Arch Linux Forums
Installing an alternate kernel variant (linux-lts and others), however, is one of the recommended troubleshooting steps for hardware problems. You'd just install it (and its matching headers), then choose "advanced options" in GRUB and boot into that. The default kernel will be unaffected.
edit: "just install" and then rebuild initramfs, that will be done automatically by garuda-update otherwise use mkinitcpio -P before rebooting.


This other one indicates it may be a wrong default setting somewhere in /etc/udev/rules.d/:
Pavucontrol HDMI output profile unavailable, No HDMI Audio - Sound - Manjaro Linux Forum

I didn't really understand what should I do :sweat_smile:

Should I try Pulse audio instead of pipewire?

systemctl --user status pipewire
● pipewire.service - PipeWire Multimedia Service

I don't think so, and sadly I don't know how to proceed either.
I'm wary of giving bad advice, I really hope someone else chimes in.
Also, I'll be away in the afternoon.

Okay, thanks for your help​:white_heart:

First, from what I can tell with that motherboard model, there has been many BIOS updates since your version. One that even "Prevents the occurrence of a potential issue which may cause unpredictable system behavior. " Given how vague that is, would be worth looking into.
(Had to look up to find a similar laptop system with the board so I could find info. If I am right, the latest BIOS version for your board is F.49 Rev.A from July 17, 2020)

Also, looks like you have both integrated graphics and a dedicated graphics chip on that laptop. Might be related to that, but I am not well versed on laptops. (might be a BIOS setting or something that might help?)

Note: things I will say past this point will probably only be a factor once you have your audio source show up as in your list as something available to select.

Double check your audio setup and make sure HDMI and other cables are plugged in the right spots. Also worth reading as it is related: https://www.digitaltrends.com/home-theater/hdmi-arc-explained-works-care/

Lastly, is that HDMI cords (like all cords) can fail like anything else.
Not only that, certain setups favor what type of HDMI cords they like most given what they are used for given on bandwidth use and other factors.

I am using windows with Garuda linux. On Windows the HDMI audio is working just fine so I don't think it's a problem with the bios or with the hardware​:sweat_smile:

What works on windows doesn't mean it will work on linux. How linux interfaces with things are usually not the same.
Not to mention, you have MANY important bios updates that you would want to do it regardless for security reasons (many updates listed security updates).
