Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1472132
Audio output does not automatically switch when current is no longer available
Last modified: 2017-07-21 08:51:04 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Gnome Shell 3.24.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug a TV with a HDMI wire
2. Goto gnome-control-center > output > select the TV
3. Unplug the wire
4. Raise or lower the sound via your keyboard
Actual results: The TV / HDMI output is still enabled (displayed below the volume icon). And so there are no sound.
Expected results: The ouput has switched to default computer speaker
Additional info: You have to goback to the control center and select default speaker (the only one available)
gnome-shell has no business in dealing with sound output devices. My guess would be that this is pulseaudio's job, so reassigning there.
