Title: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: CentralMedia on August 13, 2013, 02:31:51 am
Just installed 1004, with  GT 430, based on the messages, the nvidia driver installed and the alsa backport drivers, but not getting any audio through the HDMI port; have no on board audio on this board.

If I do aplay -l, I get no audio device.

Did not find anything to indicate HDMI issues with this card, maybe I was wrong or something went wrong for me

You should try a kernel-upgrade...worked for me.
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: CentralMedia on August 13, 2013, 11:55:17 am
Which kernel version you used, or just use the latest?

Would the instructions apply as it did for 810 in the Upgrading_the_Kernel, wiki entry?

I cannot seem to post links

when I try the apt-get search for linux-image and linux-headers, and linux-restricted, not finding any restricted modules. Would this be an issue?

Did the kernel upgrade, rebooted and no onscreen orbitor, am presented with a black login prompt.

Is it I am missing another step?

Check if the nvidia driver is loaded...  lsmod | grep nvidia

If not.. try loading..   modprobe nvidia

If fails.. you may need to manually reinstall.. you may have to install the linux-headers for your kernel version

Ok I had messed things up, so had to do a re-install.

Had previously installed the headers for the new kernel, will retry and let u know.

When re-doing, I am seeing some failures after adding the line to /etc/apt/sources.list when u do an apt-get update, see below

The apt-cache search linux-image, gives me a whole list of images, also for headers

This is what I choose

linux-image-3.0.0-32-generic

linux-headers-3.0.0-32-generic

Thus did apt-get install linux-image-3.0.0-32-generic linux-headers-3.0.0-32-generic

Installed the kernel, rebooted, did the lsmod, no results returned, tried reinstalling the nvidia-glx-260 driver, which failed


Downloaded the driver from nvidia NVIDIA-Linux-x86-319.32.run, which ran, but the screen was much bigger than the tv.

If i re-ran audio video setup, it would tell me it failed to start x, with the download nvidia driver.


Error reinstall nvidia-glx-260 on kernel 3.0.0-32-generic

any thoughts, seem to be missing something big time, really thought the GT 430, would have worked easily enough, LOL

are you on 10.04 or 12.04 if on 10.04 use stock one and see if you have alsa 24 by typing in termail alsamixer
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: CentralMedia on August 14, 2013, 08:50:12 pm
Its 10.04, if its the stock alsa that comes with it, it does not see the Audio device, even if I do sudo aplay -l.

I did a re-install this morning again, before leaving for work, will look at it again when I reach home tonight.

Was planning since the kernel upgrade not working complying, to try upgrade the alsa driver on the existing kernel to 25.

Going to start taking backup now with System Rescue Cd, in a effort to reduce the workload of doing a restore

I'm using  gtx550... It only would work with s newer kernel...   


I added a a xorg update repository... giving me the latest nvidia driver package...

Go to www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/ubuntu-x-swat.  It will give you instructions

After further research found this.

 http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/1004_Video_Hardware_Compatibility_List

Has the kernel upgrade instructions you were looking for and is required.
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: CentralMedia on August 17, 2013, 02:01:35 am
I did the following

Quote
apt-get update
CurKernel="-generic"
if uname -r | grep "pae"; then CurKernel="-generic-pae"; fi
NewKernel="linux-image${CurKernel}-lts-backport-natty"
NewHeaders="linux-headers${CurKernel}-lts-backport-natty"
apt-get -yf install "$NewKernel"
apt-get -yf install "$NewHeaders"
apt-get -yf remove linux-headers${CurKernel}
apt-get -yf remove linux-image${CurKernel}
apt-get -yf dist-upgrade

When it finished I rebooted, the headers were not installed realized after I rebooted, as the second variable NewHeaders seemed to have not been set, so I installed the hearders after.

Then I did the following

Quote
/usr/pluto/bin/Stop_X.sh
add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
apt-get update
apt-get install -y nvidia-current

But on reboot, the nvidia-install.sh, redid the 260 install and then rebooted twice and then dumped me into the Av Wizard, where sound did work this time, nice :).

Well I am not using the latest nvidia driver, but ok, see below

     ................................................
        Kernel driver in use: nvidia
        Kernel modules: nvidia-glx-260, nouveau, nvidiafb

Plan, play a movie make sure it working, then backup the system and then try upgrading alsa as alsamixer claims its v1.0.22. Then try upgrading the nvidia version, hopefully editing the nvidia-install.sh, removing the card ID from 260 group and putting it in current may help. will tell you the progress.

Thanks Crumble, that did the trick

Ok although I got audio in Av Wizard, did not get any on xine. Found someone else who disable Use AC3/DTS pass-through, and rebooted, then I got audio, maybe its the TV, its a simple Toshiba, no receiver.

 So still smiling, thus far. Also I believe I am using vdpau, set it in the admin page and also for Deinterlace Quality.

Post by: tschak909 on August 17, 2013, 04:26:33 am
Often TVs only support PCM through the digital/HDMI ports. You're going to need an amp with real speakers to do any better. So you'll need to disable the DTS pass through (by saying no and no in the AVWizard, or by deselecting in web admin).

Ok

I went ahead and tried upgrading to the current Nvidia driver following below. On reboot, it kept re-installing the 260 driver, so I removed the card entry from nvidia-install.sh and rebooted, which kept the 304*.

Quote
/usr/pluto/bin/Stop_X.sh
add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
apt-get update
apt-get install -y nvidia-current

The issue is, I cannot choose 1080p for my resolution, it bigger than the screen, only getting through with 720p, is this expected with the 304*

Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: Crumble on August 20, 2013, 03:56:07 am
have you tried removing your xorg.*?  New driver possibly different detection methods.
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: CentralMedia on August 20, 2013, 09:51:31 am
Yes it was removed saw the message saying it did not exist and I also rebooted with this

/usr/pluto/bin/RebootWithAVWizard.sh

Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: Crumble on August 20, 2013, 10:41:17 am
did you check if you have an xorg?
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: CentralMedia on August 20, 2013, 11:19:24 am
Yes it has an xorg.conf, its using the nvidia driver and  "720p (16:9)".
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: Crumble on August 20, 2013, 12:30:31 pm
hmm, maybe try /usr/bin/pluto/Stop_X.sh
nvidia-xconfig

then manually change the resolution to 1080p
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: CentralMedia on August 20, 2013, 01:44:41 pm
Will try that this afternoon, when I reach home from work and let u know
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: CentralMedia on August 21, 2013, 12:24:19 am
Na that did not help.

Every thing seems to work well with the 260 driver I might very well keep it or might stick with the 720p resolution
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: Crumble on August 21, 2013, 02:03:20 am
You could always try this

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Custom_Display_Resolutions

But if your tv's native resolution is 720p you will get better quality at this setting anyway.

Post by: darkwizard864 on August 21, 2013, 04:41:25 am
 did you upgrade to alsa 24 ?
it needs alsa 24.
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: CentralMedia on August 22, 2013, 07:20:37 pm
No I did not do that upgrade of alsa, will look at this over the weekend, should have some free time then.
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: l3mce on August 28, 2013, 05:03:55 pm
woah woah woah...

First... I thought I had the 430 going ootb.

Second, to fix your funky screen, mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.back and reboot. Should dump you  to avwiz and sizing fixed.

This failure to install the pieces needed is breaking during the audio stuffs as well. During the initial install did this thing have internet access?

Please give me the output of lspci -nn | grep VGA
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: Crumble on August 29, 2013, 01:37:46 am
Was gonna say I noticed latest nvidia and alsa 24 installed on my box during first boot, before setup.  Does not happen with no internet.

Also I did re-run the avwizard and no luck.

I had and old machine lying around, used it as an MD, with GT 520 in it, which installed the nvidia current and I got the same resolution to large, set it to 720 p and it was fine, this machine installed alsa 24, well that what the mixer said. Had to upgrade the kernel as the core to get audio over hdmi.

Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: l3mce on September 03, 2013, 01:52:18 am
It should have installed the natty kernel on its own... very strange.

Again... during install, are we sure this thing had internet DURING the install?
Title: Re: HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
Post by: CentralMedia on September 03, 2013, 02:30:02 am
Yes it had internet, downloaded the nvidia driver during the install, among a few other things.

I've got a core with a GT430, had it for a few years now and never managed to get the audio over HDMI working. I was using an optical input to my amp to get around this problem but it was frustrating. Nowdays I use a Zotac MAG as my core because it does just as well as the monster PC I was using, and uses a fraction of the power.

I know it's no help for you, I had many threads on here trying to get this working over a year ago, but if you do manage to get everything working then top marks to you, and please post something in the wiki so that others can follow it later if necessary.

Cheers.

Matt.

I will punch you both in the dick.


In other news I have a new scheme, and that might fix it.

Out of curiosity... I need speakertests.
speaker-test -c2 -l1 -t sine -D plughw:0,3
and then replace the last with 0,7

Tell me if either fire. For shits and giggles try 0 on its own... this presumes your gt is card 0.
aplay -l (as root) to determine.

Also tell me what version you are on
cat /etc/asound/version
