Hakology – Retropie HDMI audio fix

No audio over HDMI on retropie? No problem, here’s your solution i’ve seen a few fixes on the web lots varied some were overly complicated so I decided to write up a really simple fix. Tested and working on the RPi3MB.

Boot retropie
Go to the retro pie menu
Go to the audio menu and press ‘A’
Ensure HDMI is selected, also check the mixer volume is at 100%
Save settings and return to the retropie menu
Quit emulation station
Run …
sudo nano /boot/config.txt

uncomment the following …
#hdmi_drive=2
so it looks like this …
hdmi_drive=2

also uncomment …
#hdmi_force_hotplug=1
so it looks like this …
hdmi_force_hotplug=1

Press ctrl+x to save the file.
now run …
amixer cset numid=3 2
and ..
sudo reboot

Hopefully you should now have audio over HDMI

Whoot! looks like corsair have updated the ticket. Awaiting RMA confirmation swapping this brown mx for a new spangly red mx keyboard hopefully. That would be most awesome.

Hakology Day 6 : Blog Entry

[15.31]
Really late night last night, time to get the kettle on and wake up. Need to do some shopping then I think ill look at re-recording the steam controller tutorial without the animations and just do a straight forward install video, I’m thinking that’s the best plan of action. Wasted too much time on this video and want to get busy with SDR and some other bits and bobs.
