Ubuntu refuses to output audio via HDMI
My issue is that I can't get sound to my TV which I connected via HDMI cable to my HP Pavilion g6 Laptop running under OS Ubuntu 12.04-64bit.
Terminal output about audio hardware:
List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices:
jg-laptop@JG-Laptop:~$ aplay -l card 0: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0] Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0 card 1: Generic_1 [HD-Audio Generic], device 0: STAC92xx Analog [STAC92xx Analog] Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
jg-laptop@JG-Laptop:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards 0 [Generic ]: HDA-Intel - HD-Audio Generic HD-Audio Generic at 0xf0544000 irq 44 1 [Generic_1 ]: HDA-Intel - HD-Audio Generic HD-Audio Generic at 0xf0540000 irq 16
I have no choice in System
Settings -> Sound to select HDMI audio output
Please can somebody tell me what is missing and what I would have to do?
