Read the Wiki Article mentioned in this thread, works for me and some other GT2XX owner.

This might help for some desktop cards, but breaks sound completely on my laptop.

I still have *no* sound at all through HDMI. Not even stereo pcm.

Yeah, I'd expect breakage on notebooks. If you have the "three devices" symptom, it may just be a matter of putting the correct PCI IDs into the patch. Should probably take this to the other thread though as it's a different issue.

Don't suppose anyone from NVIDIA wants to throw us a bone?

Default Re: HDMI audio no longer works with 190.xx releases

Hey everyone !

I made some testing with newest Nvidia driver (195.36.07.03) and a fresh Alsa driver snapshot (there were significant updates for nvidia hdmi audio support in Alsa lately http://git.alsa-project.org/?p=alsa-...27444b;hb=HEAD

I found out that my nvidia 9400 integrated MCP7A hdmi sound still only working in two channel mode. No multichannel hdmi audio (with 185 series it WAS WORKING), but we have a siginificant improvement:

With the G210 videocard now we have full 8 channel hdmi audio with CORRECT CHANNEL MAPPING !

So from now we can declare that the problem is only related to the older integrated nvidia chipsets, IONs, because with the very same AV receiver, TV i have perfect sound with the G210 videocard.

So please Nvidia correct this problem with drivers as a lot of people having this chipset.

Thanks for the great work so far.

Alan

Has anybody had success in using HDMI audio with the GT 2x0 M series?

I've just got my self a GT210 (Asus EN210, quite noise with it's little fan) and after installing the latest snapshot of the alsa-drivers I got sound over HDMI working.

The ALSA speaker-test with 2, 6 and 8 channels work nicely and the correct lights on the receiver light up.

MythTV however won't give a peep and mplayer seems to play only stereo although with -channel 6 all corresponding lights on the receiver are on.

If you're using PulseAudio, you'll need to make changes there; MythTV's audio settings need to be setup as well. It's not quite up to date, but the page on XBMC's wiki has some setup bits at the bottom you can try. You won't need to change any of your sound.conf stuff (which is the out-of-date part; I'm still working on actually setting up a new snapshot on my machine).

Thanks, I had already found that nice wiki googling and used the pulseaudio bits. It seems I do not need any additional module parameters. After adding channels=6 to ~/.mplayer/config I can now happily watch any movie with the proper sound!

MythTV is up next...

I've got every thing working now! MythTV is now happily playing with sound the HD channels even give my a nice Dolby Digital signal (I think it's doing spdif over HDMI).

So in short, with my GT210 I have the following audio formats working:

PCM stereo
PCM multichannel, tested with 6 and 8 channels
Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX and DTS and DTS ES

Now I am going to search for a more quite GT210 or GT220....

Unfortunately with the 9x00 integrated motherboards things are still again/still nowhere working in 8 channel mode :-(
