EDIT: This is not a duplicate of No sound on HDMI with Radeon driver. I have followed those instructions to update grub, and the problem persists.
I'm having no luck getting HDMI audio to work. I've searched around and read many many suggestions on how to fix this issue, but none have solved the problem.
- Running Ubuntu 13.10
- AMD Radeon Richland integrated APU
- Onboard audio works fine
- HDMI audio doesn't make a peep

Things I've already tried:
- Ensure HDMI is unmuted in alsamixer
- Update alsa to latest daily build. Running oem-audio-hda-daily-dkms - 0.201402110705~ubuntu13.10.1
- Update video driver from radeon to fglrx (catalyst 13.12). Initially HDMI audio was not listed among outputs under Sound Settings (although it was shown in aplay -l), but after installing fglrx driver, now HDMI audio is listed in Sound Settings.
- Checked volume and settings in PulseAudio Volume Control - set HDMI audio to be the fallback output.
I'm at a loss what to try next.
Maybe the most telling error related to this is the one from speaker-test:
$ speaker-test -c2 -D hw:0,3 -r48000 speaker-test 188.8.131.52 Playback device is hw:0,3 Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 2 channels Using 16 octaves of pink noise Rate set to 48000Hz (requested 48000Hz) Buffer size range from 64 to 16384 Period size range from 32 to 8192 Using max buffer size 16384 Periods = 4 was set period_size = 4096 was set buffer_size = 16384 0 - Front Left Write error: -5,Input/output error xrun_recovery failed: -5,Input/output error Transfer failed: Input/output error
Any help is greatly appreciated!
