No HDMI output: Dell Mini1010, TC10.0
« on: March 04, 2019, 04:48:35 PM »
I'm not finding an answer to this other than that the 'Poulsbo' chip doesn't necessarily 'play nicely'.

I have ruled out there being any hardware/cabling issues (it works when booted to Win7, but not immediately (no boot screen)).

After several attempts to resolve this I'm hoping someone can offer advice on how to proceed. Otherwise I'll have to give it the Dante' treatment. (Abandon hope...)

As always, thanks in advance.

Perhaps you have a similar situation to mine - my laptop has two sound outputs, hdmi and analogue.

Most of the time hdmi comes up as the default sound output, but not always.

If hdmi comes up as the default, neither hdmi nor analogue will work unless the graphics-KERNEL extension is loaded before any sound drivers.

In order for hdmi to work properly, the alsa-config extension needs to be loaded after graphics-KERNEL and before the alsa extension.

Although they add bloat, pulseaudio and pavucontrol make it easier to manage multiple sound outputs.
