Description of problem:
F14 Clean install - Onboard HDA-Intel card identified correctly and sound works from headphone jack as well as external speaker plug. SPDIF cable connected from SPDIF output into nvidia 8600GT video card which sends video signal via HDMI port to TV. No sound is coming through. F13 had no issues and all was well. No hardware change from f13 to f14
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Pulse Audio 0.9.21
Constant problem, no sound from HDMI
Steps to Reproduce:
1. SPDIF cable to video card
2. Fresh intall F14
No sound at all over HDMI
Sound to play over HDMI on tv just like in F13
Latest NVIDIA drivers via yum update (260 series drivers)

F14 blown away and replaced with F12, standard install - followed these steps
1. Install F12
2. Upgrade all components.
3. Install kmod-nvidia 190 drivers from rpm fusion
4. edit asound.conf and add:
5. edit alsa-base.conf and add
options snd-hda-intel model=3stack-6ch-dig
7. all is well.
currently pre-upgrading to f13 to see if that still works.
Have you used gnome-volume-control to select the right sound card as default in the right setup?
gnome-volume-control was used and the sound card correctly identified. Every possible profile combination was tried with no resulting sound from HDMI.
Currently, F12 profile selected is "Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output + Analog Stereo Input", this is working well now, but on f14 would not output sound via HDMI cable.

SPDIF is broken and since my setup connects the spdif out on my motherboard to my video card, hdmi has no audio.
You can see from the info above, the setup is as correct as possible, yet spdif still has no output. This is in contrast to f12 which worked immediately.
So while f14 correctly identifies the sound card as well as spdif capabilities, it is not sending any output to spdif, that is why there is no resulting audio via HDMI in my setup, had I been connecting to an external amp, that amp wouldn't be receiving any signal.
I think this bug is 100% confirmed.
I just re-downloaded fedora 14 iso and fresh install with default kernel 188.8.131.52.45.
I updated the system immediately after install and it took me to kernel version 184.108.40.206-74 and everything else that came along with it.
enabled RPM Fusion repo and installed kmod-nvidia 260 drivers, I then rebooted and edited asound.conf and alsa-base.conf as per above post.
Rebooted, selected sound card profile as above from pulse-audio volume control and nothing.... still no sound in F14 over spdif. f12 has no problems.
Any investigations into this issue yet?
I'm having a similar problem myself.

SPDIF out worked fine up to 220.127.116.11-48.fc14.x86_64 included. all released kernels after that have the bug (no sound), with the exact same pulse config :
load-module module-alsa-sink device=spdif:0 sink_name=spdif
My motherboard is an asus rampage iii extreme.
I send the SPDIF out to my Denon AV amp.
For now i have pinned down kernel updates in yum.conf :
You are correct, this does seem identical to https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24342 for now I am stuck with F12.
could you try with 18.104.22.168-48 kernel and default config to see if it is the same problem as in https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24342 / fedora bug 682480 ?
please try kernel-22.214.171.124-88.fc14 in updates-testing
SPDIF Out is working again with kernel-126.96.36.199-88.fc14 from updates-testing.
Good stuff. Thanks !
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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 to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
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.
