[Bug 1256978] Re: Ubuntu 13.10 sound HDMI problem


I can tell you, 'medium importance' for such a problem is ...

I have been working for months with each time, switching my audio back
to my external speakers as HDMI was active each time after reboot!

In the end I deleted the whole mess and am working in Parallels (Mac
OSX) now; there all works well as it should have been in dual boot!

  Ubuntu 13.10 sound HDMI problem

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  On my Mac mini with LG monitor (in Ubuntu Gnome 13.10, dual-boot with
  OSX), connected via HDMi cable, I notice that at boottime, after
  login, the sound output option is switched / altered to ' HDMi /
  Displayport 3 - Built in audio' while having selected the option
  'Headphones - Built in Audio' (for my external speakerset) during last
  session myself!

  Is this something which is 'known'?
  I've looked in the answers; loads of stuff about HDMi and sound output but could not find any similar problem really....

  Switching it back to the right 'output' gives me sound again!

  Please advise!

  Kind regards,
