Description Neil Wilson 2009-08-16 06:21:03 UTC
HDMI sound has to be manually configured in xorg.conf and is switched on for outputs that don't support it (such as internal LCD on laptops). 

HDMI sound should be automatically detected.
Comment 1 Neil Wilson 2009-08-16 06:25:11 UTC
Linked through from Ubuntu bug https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/xserver-xorg-driver-radeonhd/+bug/412688
Comment 2 Rafał Miłecki 2009-08-19 12:07:12 UTC
HDMI should not be exposed anymore for outputs like LVDS in current git.

We didn't decide to enable HDMI by default because of some single reports of not working picture transmission after doing so.
Comment 3 Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia 2011-10-16 16:01:12 UTC
Does this issue occur with the preferred ati driver (xf86-vide-ati)?  If so, please move this to the Driver/Radeon component.  

Development of radeonhd has pretty much halted and development focus is on the ati driver.  Please see http://www.x.org/wiki/radeonhd

If the issue does not exist in the ati driver (or if there is no response to this message), this bug will be closed as WONTFIX unless someone contributes a patch.
Comment 4 Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia 2011-11-07 15:35:37 UTC
Closing due to lack of response.  Please reopen and move to the Driver/Radeon 
component if this issue persists with xf86-video-ati
