I have a laptop with an ati radeon 4200, on 12.04 everything worked fine, since upgrading to 12.10 I cannot get sound over the hdmi. When I switch to hdmi audio the video speeds up to about 2x. I can use the speakers in my laptop and watch video via hdmi with no problems.
Things I have tried:
- Various tutorials to install the AMD/ATI drivers, all of which resulted in low graphics mode.
- Checked that everything is properly set in
alsamixer, the sound utility and - installed
pavucontroland checked everything in there.
- Verified the output from
cat /proc/asound/cardslooks normal
When I initially upgraded there was a plethora of problems which I believe were due to the old proprietary driver still being used but not compatible, after a few hours trying to fix that I decided just to back up and do a fresh install which works great except for the above stated problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Finally hopefully this hasn't already been answered, I have tried a few different searches on the boards and haven't come up with anything.
