Support for SI/TN and newer hardware was added in 3.12. Additionally, with 3.12 you no longer need to boot with radeon.audio=1. You can enable/disable audio on the fly with xrandr. E.g., xrandr --output HDMI-0 --set audio auto
Side question, is xrandr persistent? I know screen settings werent really persistent, but other settings? Like if i wanted to turn HDMI audio off with
would that persist across reboots?Code:xrandr --output HDMI-0 --set audio off
Amazing. LPCM 24-bit 7.1 channel audio on my Linux box is very close!!!
I am also not affected by HDMI audio since I use classic methods and dedicated audio interfaces. Nevertheless: Good to read these news. A lot of people DO use HDMI adio. Things like this make life just better.
I recently threw money for Mom's new PC at AMD, and I'll continue to throw (as soon as I happen to have some). My eyes are on a E-1800 system for HTPC purposes...
Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
Now only if NVIDIA will follow suit with code for their HDMI audio implementations as used on their cards, but not holding my breath...
