My device has 4 sound profiles, 2 of which uses Surround 4.0 Output. The “analogue stereo” input and output works perfectly fine, but when switching to Surround 4.0 output, the profile produces no sound whatsoever.
When testing the Surround 4.0 Output profile, the 2 front speakers does not output any sound, but the 2 rear speakers does output sound. Playing sounds normally however, doesn’t produce any sound at all. How can I fix this?
For context, I’m using Fedora 36 KDE spin, this is my first time using Fedora and the sound problem was there from the very first boot. The first thing I did was updating my entire system with
sudo dnf upgrade, then I installed NVIDIA properitory sound system using RPMFusion’s guide
I also installed plugins and additional codec following Fedora’s Quick Doc, but that doesn’t seem to change anything either. This issue persisted in other distros as well (I used Manjaro and Kubuntu before this). So I think it’s a problem not specific to Fedora. Manjaro used PulseAudio sound server, the issue still persisted there as well.
Below this post, I’ve attached some additional specs which I think users may find helpful to troubleshoot the problem.
