Description of problem:
First, plugging an HDMI cable does not auto-switch the Output Device and it has to be switched manually every time.
Second, in Gnome Settings -> Sound -> Output Device the drop-down appears as blank after unplugging the HDMI cable. At this point there is no sound at all. However I am able to select the builtin speakers if I click on the drop-down window and the sound comes back on.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.3.38
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in an HDMI cable and manually switch sound output to the new device
2. Unplug cable
3. Go to settings and check Output Devices
Output devices are not switched automatically and unplugging the HDMI cable results in sounds loss.
Devices are switched automatically as in Fedora 34. Disconnecting the HDMI device does not result in a sound loss.
Not the same as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2001279
Just tested and this is not reproducible with a bluetooth speaker although it doesn't auto-switch to bluetooth speaker exactly after reproducing the bug and the small icon (for headset) is missing as well in the drop-down window.
I suspect I am experiencing the same bug.
When I boot my desktop computer and open GNOME Sound Settings, the output device name is blank. No change in audio device happens automatically regardless of what is being plugged in or unplugged.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.3.40
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See the steps provided by @p.bozukov.

I submitted this comment before it was complete by accident. I apologize for the mistake.
The steps can be reproduced using headphones, plugged into either line out or the headphone jack.
I can reproduce the same set of behaviors as described by p.bozukov with a DisplayPort Audio Output device
This bug is resolved in Fedora 36. Probably was fixed with one of the updates in F35. Please close or let me know with what status to close.
I am running F36, I confirm that I am latest RPM versions, and this bug still persist. Can you help me troubleshoot it?
Sorry, I haven't done anything besides upgrading to F36. I don't experience this bug anymore.
Hm I think I confused between two different things. The first scenario that works:
1. Select built-in speakers as an audio output device
2. Plug-in headphones
3. Audio output device switches to headphones successfully, and speakers do not sound anymore, that is expected
And the second scenario that I had in mind when writing my first comment:
1. Select some external speakers as an audio output device, in my case ThinkPad dock station's audio output mini jack with external speakers connected to it
2. Plug-in headphones into the laptop's built-in mini jack
3. Audio output device does not switch to headphones. I guess that is expected behavior too, but I think it would be nice if I can control this.
