[Bug 1160731] Re: [System Product Name, ATI RS690/780 HDMI, Digital Out, HDMI] No sound at all


This is fixed in the upstream 3.13 kernel. The radeon.audio=1 kernel
boot option is no longer necessary with this kernel. Instead, HDMI audio
on ATI/AMD Radeon cards can be enabled and disabled on the fly by typing
the following in a terminal window:

xrandr --output HDMI-0 --set audio on


xrandr --output HDMI-0 --set audio off

If your HDMI port is numbered differently (type "xrandr" to check) - you
might need to change HDMI-0 in the above command to HDMI-1 or HDMI-2.

Ubuntu 14.04 "Trusty Tahr" is based on the 3.13 kernel.
