No Audio w/HDMI.
« on: June 12, 2014, 05:57:05 am »
I installed Peppermint 4 for my folks computer up here at the lake. I have it connected to a 40" TV with an HDMI cable. I'm using a Saphire Radeon 5450 video card so that I can utilize the HDMI feature, the motherboard does not have HDMI. So, my question is: The video seems to work fine, but I get no audio through the TV speakers, no sound on anything I've tried - youtube, a NYTimes video, etc. My Dad says well, that's ok, he rarely uses any audio, and I know that's true, but I'm still determined to see if I can get audio going before I leave tomorrow. I suppose this might have something to do with the ALSA Mixer, but I really have no idea. Any ideas anyone has on this might be helpful. Thanks.
