I think I exhausted all the forums posts around this, tried many things but nothing worked. Basically my problem is that there’s no audio from my TV when connected through HDMI, I can make the TV to make sound with the
speaker-test -c2 -Dhdmi:CARD=PCH,DEV=0 command.
Things I’ve tried:
sudo dnf swap wireplumber pipewire-media-sessionand reboot.
- Restart pipewire and related services with
- Make sure with
alsamixerthat nothing is muted.
- Of course, select the correct output device in GNOME Control Center.
- Try different apps: Firefox, Chrome and mpv.
One thing, audio worked months ago with an ASUS monitor, now I’m trying on a different, kind of crappy, Philips TV. I was thinking it could be a TV problem, but being able to output actual sound with
speaker-test defeats that theory.
One thing that changed in my setup recently is that I created a second user (through GNOME Control Center), could this have messed up something since pipewire uses per-user services?
