# Ubuntu – Sound problems with HDMI connection

hdmisound

I have a little question that isn't a really problem, but affects in someway when i want to watch some movie on my hdmi tv from my laptop.

So, what i ask you is since i've erased pulseaudio and have installed alsamixer, because this is the only way to stablished a properly sound connection in skype, i've lost the sound of my hdmi connection. The image works fine, but the sound have gone away…

there is some way to fix this? There is a Alsamixer HDMI plugin that fixes this issue?

I have a Acer Aspire 5542G, with AMD64 bits Turion (2,2ghz, 1Mb L2 cache), ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570.

Oh, i have Ubuntu 11.04 Natty! Everything else works fine!! 😀

Thx!

Jorge
