Possible AMD Audio Issue re HDMI

Postby milomak » 2017-04-13 21:10

So a late 2015 iMac. Appreciate that sid also adds some complexity. So we don't quite have a typical wintel setup.

- Can play anything with audio via vlc
- If I try to play a music track via Amarok or Clementine ("music player") there is no sound
- If I play something with vlc first then start the music player, the music player plays the track. I can close vlc and the music continues to play. I cannot press pause/stop or the music will cease to die
- If I try to start the music player first and then vlc, both vlc and the music player have no audio
- Running PulseAudio

I've largely avoided pulseaudio for alsa but tried to go native on this install so i start to get lost here. But here is some stuff that is additional
pacmd list

obviously I can tell from the above that there is something about index: 1 I need to do

from this, I would guess
Code: Select all
pacmd set-card-profile 1 output:

and then choose from one of these?
Code: Select all
output:analog-stereo: Analog Stereo Output (priority 6000, available: unknown)
      output:analog-stereo+input:analog-stereo: Analog Stereo Duplex (priority 6060, available: unknown)
      output:iec958-stereo: Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output (priority 5500, available: unknown)
      output:iec958-stereo+input:analog-stereo: Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output + Analog Stereo Input (priority 5560, available: unknown)

edit - when I go through my Bluetooth speaker all of this is not an issue
iMac - MacOS and Windows 10 (Bootcamp)/ Debian Sid (External SSD)
Laptop (64-bit) - Debian Sid, Win10,
Kodi Box - Debian Sid
