No HDMI sound with 11.1beta

Here is my issue:

I am happy with all things except sound: the SONY TV I have connected via HDMI (or via DP and DP to HDMI active converter) does not work at all.
I need help with the settings for the device.hints file in /boot. I have given up after reading the man page for snd_hda! I can supply all the info from dimes if required. Thanks for anybody who can help!

one info is needed:

Code: Select all
cat /dev/sndstat

from the output you should be able to see what is set as 'default' audio output.

another command, just to verify the volume levels:
Code: Select all
mixer


the man page provide lot of info, but I can see are rather complex:
Code: Select all
man snd_hda


this also worth a read: https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/60891/

Also may be worth to mention which apps you tried ;)

Hi, thanks for reply.
I have read that forum and gave up after reading the man pages.
Here is output of commands:
Code: Select all
cat /dev/sndstat
Installed devices:
pcm0: <Realtek ALC887 (Analog)> (play/rec) default
pcm1: <Realtek ALC887 (Analog)> (play/rec)
No devices installed from userspace.

Code: Select all
mixer
Mixer vol      is currently set to 100:100
Mixer pcm      is currently set to 100:100
Mixer speaker  is currently set to  74:74
Mixer line     is currently set to   1:1
Mixer mic      is currently set to  67:67
Mixer mix      is currently set to  74:74
Mixer rec      is currently set to  35:35
Mixer igain    is currently set to   0:0

Maybe you can help but I cannot see any HDMI pcm device when quering the system!
Thanks again.

Hmm ... it seems there is only analog output, there is no HDMI output listed.

mixer values looks ok.

Exactly, that's a starting point.

If the module snd_hda is loaded, it might means support for you card is absent/incomplete (I'm not really an expert about audio), I was suspecting it was not the default, but didn't expect it not listed/recognzed at all.

That's something that I would need to research myself ... I will post back when/if I will have useful info.
