[Bug 1457697] Re: [Vivid] kernel 3.19.0-17 fails to find HDMI sound output


Thank you for pointing out that my BIOS was outdated.

The device I have is the MSI ProBox23, which is based on a similar board to the H81T1  :

The H81T1 and ProBox23 have different BIOS versions (the BIOS upgrade refused the BIOS version for the H81T1).
I upgraded the BIOS from here instead:
http://www.msi.com/support/desktop/ProBox23.html#down-bios&Win7 64

I was running BIOS version A0J.
I have just upgraded to BIOS version A0W (Version E7788IOB V10.0BW-W7)

With the newly upgraded BIOS, the HDMI audio output are still not found
with kernel 3.19.0-18

Here is the requested terminal output (after the BIOS upgrade):
$sudo dmidecode -s bios-version
$sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date
