Description:
After the upgrade of pulseaudio to 6.0-1 there is no sound anymore on the HDMI output.
A downgrade to pulseaudio 5.0-1 makes everything work again.

pulseaudio is running:
ps -ef | grep pulseaudio
xbmc 679 1 1 16:43 ? 00:00:02 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --start --log-target=syslog

Have you rebooted after upgrading?
Comment by Marc Geerlings (markus-66) - Friday, 13 February 2015, 17:06 GMT
I reboot everytime I i installed the packages.
I installed 6.0-1 and did a reboot (Didn't work).
Degraded to 5.0-1 and did a reboot (worked).
Installed 6.0-1 again, did a reboot (Didn't work), retrieved information for the bug report.
Degraded to 5.0-1 and did a reboot (worked).

I installe 6.0-1 again to see if I could solve it myself.

There is something strange if I do a "pacmd" info the ports of are listed as:
sinks:
alsa_output.pci-0000_00_03.0.hdmi-stereo/#0: Built-in Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI)
sources:
alsa_output.pci-0000_00_03.0.hdmi-stereo.monitor/#0: Monitor of Built-in Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI)
ports:
hdmi-output-0: HDMI / DisplayPort (priority 5900, latency offset 0 usec, available: no)
properties:
device.icon_name = "video-display"
hdmi-output-1: HDMI / DisplayPort 2 (priority 5800, latency offset 0 usec, available: no)
properties:
device.icon_name = "video-display"
hdmi-output-2: HDMI / DisplayPort 3 (priority 5700, latency offset 0 usec, available: yes)
properties:
device.icon_name = "video-display"
device.product.name = "SAMSUNG"

Notice the hdmi-output-2.

Now if I do pacmd list-sinks I see:
ports:
hdmi-output-0: HDMI / DisplayPort (priority 5900, latency offset 0 usec, available: no)
properties:
device.icon_name = "video-display"
active port: <hdmi-output-0>

Notice no hdmi-output-1 and hdmi-output-2

if I do
$pacmd set-sink-port 0 hdmi-output-0
There is no error,
But if I do
$pacmd set-sink-port 0 hdmi-output-2
The error is "Failed to set sink port to 'hdmi-output-3'"

You can close the bug.
When trying to generate a log I deleted the contents of .config/pulse.
After this everything worked again.
Comment by Mark Zanfardino (mzanfardino) - Friday, 27 February 2015, 09:13 GMT
I have run into this exact same issue with two different machines both running Arch following the upgrade to pulseaudio-6. I will be happy to provide whatever additional information is required, but please note that this issue should not be closed.

NOTE: I removed ~/.config/pulse as suggested by Marc but in my case it made no difference.

I have the same issue. No sound with HDMI-3, works fine with analog output with default configuration.
Comment by Michael Jarrett (mjarrett) - Thursday, 21 May 2015, 03:12 GMT
I am having a similar issue, also present in current version (6.0-2)

Removing pulseaudio, deleting /etc/pulse and ~/.config/pulse and reinstalling yields the same issue. running nvidia GT610 with 352.09-1 drivers, unable to downgrade due to kernel 4.0 requirements.

pulseaudio defaults to HDMI port which is unplugged, HDMI 2 is plugged and available. Able to switch to it however only as stereo (not 5.1/7.1 as the receiver is capable of), and even in stereo, sound does not work. This configuration has worked in the past however latest pulseaudio update has broken it. Also nvidia update could have contributed.

Workaround is to remove pulseaudio and use Kodi's AudioEngine for HDMI bitstreaming in 5.1/7.1. I am unable to use Chrome for sound in this configuration however.
