Description jogoscontapsa 2019-01-09 17:50:49 UTC
Description of problem:

Using Fedora 28 I cant send sound through HDMI. The video is displayed perfectly, everything from the visual stand point works great, but there is no sound coming through. Note that this problem first appeared a few months ago, but after reinstalling pulseaudio everything worked great. 2 weeks ago when i tried to watch a movie on my computer using HDMI to send it to the TV the sound didn't work again... 

Using "pulseaudio Volume Control" Graphical Tool:
-> On the output devices I only see my Built-in audio analog Stereo and not the HDMI option. Going into the "Configuration" tab, I can see the "HDA Nvidia" option but is set to "OFF", trying to change this is to no avail due to every-single option showing an "(Unpluged)" indication at the end. 

The output of "aplay -l":

This message is a reminder that Fedora 28 is nearing its end of life.
On 2019-May-28 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 28. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '28'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 28 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
