Ubuntu – No sound via HDMI on 13.04


I have upgraded to 13.04 and now I have no sound. I use an HDMI lead to connect my PC to the TV, but now I don't have that as an option to choose from.

I just have two output options:

  1. Digital
  2. Analogue

Any suggestions please?

it's a known bug. Review & subscribe to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1169984 The bug report has workarounds while we wait for a fix to be committed. The workaround which works for everyone is to use the mainline 3.8 kernel as described in the report.
