Bumping thread, issue is still present

I had the same bug this morning after resuming my Thinkpad T14s under Fedora 39.

The “Sound” section of gnome-control-center displayed this:

I reboot and everything works again :confused: (I don’t like this method).

Does restarting pipewire/wireplumber correct he issue or do you have to reboot?

systemctl --user restart pipe\* wire\*

If it’s consistent after resume may want to go ahead and file a bug.
Thanks

I seem to have the same issue as OP (two of my USB audio devices were not showing up, but my HDMI audio was). Your command brought up the missing devices.

Never had issues in the past two months of using F39 so I wonder if it’s a regression in a recent kernel update.

solved my issue of devices not showing up by rebooting into previous kernel (6.7.10) so looks like regression in .11. Not sure if this solves OP issue.

Best place to file a bug report?
