Download and install PulseAudio - you'll find items in the output tab that will help. I found setting to HDMI vs. internal speakers helped on the last version of Ubuntu. Seems to have fixed it now. :)

Have you tried selecting the output device in the sound settings menu from default to HDMI? I had to do this while watching a movie! Hope this helps. Thanks

You should look for xrandr and arandr (xrandr gui). This is the best solution I found to set up freely multiple screens under ubuntu Arandr let you configure screen : Status (Active / Inactive) Position (free positioning) Orientation (normal, right, inverted or left) Resolution Note to intel graphics owners : if you want to use more than 2 screens, be ...

To have DVI sound coming through an HDMI adapter, you need to be using a DVI-D connector with a graphics card that supports transmitting audio over DVI. From Wikipedia: DVI-D devices output HDMI signals, many including audio, (examples: ATI 3000-series and NVIDIA GTX 200-series video cards), and some multimedia displays input that HDMI signal, ...

In case others run into this issue, I've had this come up when installing pipelight on Ubuntu 14.04 with the AMD Catalyst 14.6 drivers using an A10-7800 APU. My only solution was to remove pipelight, but I had not run into the solution above. It's quite possible pipelight messes something up that this solution fixes.

You can (and should) just try it, as has been suggested, but your chances are slim, not to say null. Just like your switching graphics can't be used together, laptop designers make it so you can only use one of your VGA/DVI/HDMI outputs at a time (since it's a lot cheaper). If you had a DisplayPort output instead, you would have the option to connect ...

Not exactly an Ubuntu related question, or answer, but... you can replace a laptop screen for as little as $50. (search for D270). I did this with my Thinkpad T510 recently. I also have that netbook but not with HDMI output, it's pretty slow. It can't play youtube videos full screen without getting choppy so I don't think you're going to be very impressed ...

It has been a couple of years since I had to overcome some difficulty there, but I can give you several hints to push you in the right direction, as I was successful and so should you be. I recall that using the DISPLAYS utility under the hardware section of systems settings was instrumental, but as it has been so long, I have forgotten exactly how. I seem ...

Wich softphone do you want to use? I use Yate VOIP software and on the preferences you can choose another device for ringing and answering your phone. So your music stays on the HDMI and your call is using your headset. You only have to mute the music by yourself. http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/view/YateClient
