I am dual booting Fedora 29 and Windows 10 on Intel NUC Hades Canyon (NUC8I7HVK). I have 5.1 speakers connected to audio combo jack. On Windows sound works normally. I have tried to make it work Fedora 29 too, but so far with no success. I have installed Pulse Audio Control Panel and checked different setup in configuration tab. Most of them is unplugged or marked as HDMI. Unluckily, I still cannot hear anything. Can somebody guide me how to enable it? I am not so experienced user.

I have two jack's front and rear (which works for both analog and digital sound). When I plug in jack from headphones (analog). In settings -> sound appera option: Built-in sound -> Headphones (front jack) / Line (rear jack) and profile: Analog Duplex Stereo. Problem appears when I connect 5.1 speakers with digital cable TOSLINK to JACK. No option available in settings -> sound - only HDMI / DisplayPort 6 - HD-Audio Generic, profile: Out Digital Stereo (HDMI 6) - which I guess that is my monitor connected to DisplayPort.


  1. Result of : --no-upload :
  2. Removing PulseAudio didn't help.
  3. alsamixer -c0 : screen
  4. Subsystem id from alsa-info: 8086:2073 - couldn't find more information in web

I can see one device: HDMI / DisplayPort6-HD-Audio Generic. Profile is set to Out Digital Stereo (HDMI 6) - cannot change it to anything else.

Ok..let's try to change other set in profile... !!

simmon gravatar imagesimmon ( 2018-12-13 00:10:00 -0500 )edit

There is no other option to change. Only when I connect bluetooth headset appears new device and it works fine (2 profiles available for headset). When I pick HDMI / DisplayPort6-HD-Audio Generic there is no list with profiles on click. Just Out Digital Stereo (HDMI 6). I have installed rpmfusion too. No new options. I have also found useful command: --no-upload . In file generated by it there is information that my Jack has status Running - No. Maybe change it will help. Do you know how can I do it? I will paste information in next comment due to limitation of characters.

!!Sound Servers on this system !!----------------------------

Pulseaudio: Installed - Yes (/usr/bin/pulseaudio) Running - Yes

Jack: Installed - Yes (/usr/bin/jackd) Running - No

If you need I can paste whole file generated by this command, but it is quite long.

Thank you for helping me. I have updated question with result of command: dmesg|grep sound

I have the same issue with NUC8i3BEK. Sound volume extremely low on digital output! Can't find a solution yet.

rvgestel gravatar imagervgestel ( 2019-01-04 04:21:36 -0500 )edit

Add additional libraries and more for sound settings.

Goto Settings -> Sound then select the proper device, that should read Line Out. Raise the volume in order to hear the speakers test. Does HDMI output also work?

edit flag offensive delete link more


Only option available in settings -> sound is: HDMI / DiplsayPort 6 - HD-Audio Generic and profile: Out Digital Stereo (HDMI 6). I can't hear anything through speakers. When I plug in headphones into front jack new option apears: Headphones - Built-in sound and profile: Out Analog Stereo. It works. I have installed pavucontrol to have more options and went through all of them - none worked. They are described in post with question.

I've read your description, but I want to understand what is seen in Gnome. To recap, the stereo jack works, while HDMI doesn't. Your hardware is this one: . You could debug your problem using this guide:

ed209 gravatar imageed209 ( 2018-12-16 20:15:24 -0500 )edit

I have updated post by going through steps in debug guide which you sent me. Yes, hardware is this one. Problem is not with HDMI. I have two jack's - front and rear. Rear can work with both analog and digital cables. Problem appears when I connect digital cable (TOSLINK to JACK) - I have also updated description in my question to make it more precise. HDMI / DiplsayPort 6 - HD-Audio Generic and profile: Out Digital Stereo (HDMI 6) in settings -> sound is my monitor connected to DisplayPort, but I don't need to use it.
