Just upgraded my F20 desktop this weekend, first to F21 and then this morning to F22.

The only problem I noticed is the HDMI sound no longer works. It stopped working after the F20 --> F21 upgrade.

I experienced the same problem with F20 and I believe I fixed it using the suggestion HERE (adding to the grub config).

I tried the solution I used before with F20, but it no longer works (with F22).

I don't know if this will help, but here is the output of the aplay -l command,

This is a bug in kernel 4.0. kernel 4.1 has/will have the fix. I have confirmed it's fixed with 4.0rc7 from the rawhide-kernel-nodebug repository. See for details on the repo. The dnf command to install the repo is : dnf config-manager --add-repo=

Hope this helps,

Thank you.I thought it was something like a kernel bug. However, don't think I want to try a rawhide kernel. I will wait until the fix comes to the standard kernel.

With the kernel updated to 4.0.5-300, I can now report that the HDMI sound issue is now resolved on my computer. I applied the kernel update yesterday (June 21) using the standard command for updating Fedora, namely:

sudo dnf update
