    Linux / Windows VM's and sound via HDMI


    Hi folks
    a number of you use Linux VM's (and some probably as hosts too).

    If you have HDMI connections to a sound enabled monitor sometimes it's annoying as the sound (when working) still goes by default through the internal speakers --especially on a Laptop. This also is a problem if you want to get a Windows VM on a Linux Host to have sound. -- Note I'm using VMWare here.

    However I've found with a slew of Linux distros whether as a VM on windows or as a Host -- you need to set up the sound hardware to use HDMI 2 -- why I haven't a clue but it always seems to do the trick -- just select the option with ONLY HDMI 2

    click also the 2 boxes as shown in my screenshot if it appears on your audio configuration panel.

    as per :


    Linux  / Windows VM's and sound via HDMI [​IMG]


    works on Fedora, opensuse, archlinux, manjaro, centos.

    ensure sound mixer installed of course.

    Now Windows VM's on host Linux have perfect sound as well as the other way around. Blu tooth shouldn't be effected by this of course.

    With the HDMI sound via the monitor you can then of course route the HDMI sound from the monitor to external speakers or whatever via the spif out (optical) or analog out. Remember of course that using HDMI sound will switch off if you share the monitor via say KVM switch to another computer and switch the display to the other computer.

    Cheers

    Hdmi sound not working

    Hi Peter,

    One possible reason why the HDMI sound does not work is due to the conflicts with the playback settings. For us to help you make the HDMI sound to work, we suggest that you answer the following questions for further research:

    • Have you made any recent changes to your computer?
    • What is the current build and version of your Windows 10?
    • Have you tried to download and install the most updated sound and display driver of your computer?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you perform the steps on this
    article
    as our initial troubleshooting and see if there will be any changes on the HDMI sound.

    We'll be waiting for your response.

  3. no sound through hdmi to tv

    Hi,

    The HDMI might not be set as default. To set this as default please follow these steps:

    • Go to Control Panel.
    • Select Hardware and Sound.
    • Choose Sound.
    • Select Change system sounds.
    • Click Playback.
    • Then select the device.
    • At the bottom, click Set Default.
    • Click Apply and OK.

    If the troubleshooting steps above did not work for you, try changing a different HDMI cable.

    Keep us updated with the result.
