I have an ati eah4350 adapter and the latest Ubuntu 11.10. I connected the adapter using HDMI and i didn't have sound. So i installed fglrx using the readme from their site.

Now i have sound but the picture isn't smooth in videos as it was before installing the fglrx.

How can it be repaired? Thanks

What version of the fglrx drivers did you install? – Bruno Pereira Dec 5 '11 at 11:23
latest from the ATI website – peroxide Dec 5 '11 at 14:54

Remove and disable every radeon and fglrx packages from the official repository, just follow the instrunctions at this page and everything will run fine.

The HDMI audio bridge it's not automatically activated and you have to switch between your audio output devices using the "Audio Settings" menu under the volume control on the system bar. It's also probably useful for you to know that under the "gear icon" ( the one on the upper right corner ) there is a shortcut for the displays management.

read the part about the issues… take a special look at the tearing section. – Micro Dec 5 '11 at 15:13
