I am having an issue with my sound which I am aware other user's have had before: Sound works perfectly on my Ubuntu install, except when I put my headphones in, the speakers are not disabled correctly.
The interesting thing is that, when inspecting the levels in alsamixer, a headphone connection is detected and the speaker channel is muted - however this has no effect It seems as though the headphone channel is played back through both the speakers and my headphones, as muting this channel mutes both physical devices. Also, when plugging in headphones, the Speakers are no longer visible in pavucontrol, or system sound settings.
I have tried various versions of
options snd-hda-intel model=xxxx in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, including
hp-laptop, to no effect. Alsamixer also shows "Auto-Mute Mode" as enabled.
Laptop: HP Spectre x360, Ubuntu 14.04, PulseAudio 4.0.
Update: Upgraded to Willy Werewolf - the problem persists.
