Banksy Lenovo Erazer X310 - Intel® Core™ i5-4460 - Radeon RX 570 (amdgpu) [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] 1. Gaming Headset : OK DisplayPort Audio from RX 570 : OK
2. Output device : G432 Gaming Headset Everything is OK !
3. #1948299, `aplay` not work over all endpoints (detailed in bug 1948299) `alsamixer` volume level adjustement work well with all physical devices
4. Sometimes I have to close and open again the Gnome Control Center so that everything works well.
5. Everything work fine
6. When the audio output is in the HDMI/DP monitor, plugging an additional sound device doesn't make them default ! Likewise, unplugging the sound device returns the sound to be played on the built-in a udio (and not HDMI/DP monitor even if it was the original device). It's a little annoying when you don't use the built-in audio like on a desktop computer !
7. Works well with two audio devices at the same time

adamijak https://linux-hardware.org/?probe=4e38c1e886 [1] [2] [3] [4] 1. Some devices such as surround21:CARD=PCH,DEV=0 failed with ALSA lib pcm_route.c:877:(find_matching_chmap) Found no matching channel map aplay: main:830: audio open error: Invalid argument
2. 1. Some time volume can not be changed. Profile switching will fix. 2. Some time when changing output devices only some of sound sources will switch
3. 1. When adding/removing headphones it could "decide" if it was were pluged or not, by fastly changing volume and output device between speakers and headphones. 2. HDMI output device was not visible i n pavucontrol but was only in gnome-control-center. When I disconected it, output device was set to NULL and I had to change it manually. When I pluged it in volume raised unreasonably to 100%.
4. Sometimes after connection bluetooth headphones does not play sound. Reconnecting works. Sometimes profile switching does not work.

bessiethecow Lenovo ThinkPad T470s [1] [2] 1. My external USB microphone wasn't getting detected as a input device after the upgrade even though it shows up in lsusb. It also works fine on test users that I made but not on my main user account. I t started working after I enabled and disabled the internal microphone in the BIOS. I have a second monitor with speakers connected to my laptop via HDMI. It shows up as a separate audio output in the Gnome settings and it works fine but I only see one sink when I do pactl list sinks.
2. HDMI display speakers don't show up as an output but it works in Gnome settings.

2. 1. aplay -L lists physical and logical devices on the system PASSED 2. Audio can be played over different endpoints using the aplay command : Test #2 : for "aplay -D default <audiofile.wav>" output gives "Lecture WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Fréquence 48000 Hz, Mono" PASSED Test #3 : for "aplay -D hw:0 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav" output gives "ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1829:(_snd_pcm_hw_open) Invalid value for card" PASSED Test #3 : for "aplay -D hw:1 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav" output gives "Lecture WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Fréquence 48000 Hz, Mono" PASSED Test #4 : for "aplay -D pipewire <audiofile.wav>" output gives "Lecture WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Fréquence 48000 Hz, Mono" PASSED Test #5 : for "aplay -D sysdefault:CARD=PCH /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav" output gives "Lecture WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Fréquence 48000 Hz, Mono" PASSED Test #7 : PASSED
3. Microphone has not been tested (no microphone to test)
4. Cannot test #8 and #9 (only one output device)
5. 1. Pavucontrol starts and shows the available sound devices on the Output devices tab. PASSED 2. When a Bluetooth device is connected, it appears in Pavucontrol PASSED 2. and the sound is immediately routed through this device. FAILED (had to make default first) 3. When a Bluetooth device is disconnected, it disappears from the device list and the sound is immediately rerouted back to the original device. PASSED 4. Profiles and codecs work if they are available. DIDN'T TEST (not available) An issue that could be related to my Bluetooth adapter or receiver prevented me to connect the BT audio back after disconnecting. "src/service.c:btd_service_connect() a2dp-sink profile connect failed for :MACADDRESS: Device or resource busy"

4. All features work, but since I pressed the Bark alert sound button, system alert is switched to the bark sound and I am unable to change it again.
5. Bare metal - only system sounds uses the default (built-in) device. All other apps use the output selected last time in pavucontrol or Control Center (even for another app).
6. #1948091, I only tested HDMI/DP since I have no external (e.g. USB) audio device. 1 external screen works fine. Switching between 2 external screens does not work correctly (see the bug in rhbz).

2. On XFCE, so used Pulseaudio Volume Control to run tests. Everything worked as expected.
3. Everything worked as expected
4. Works with airpod pros, however a few days ago I had to follow this tweak to get them to pair correctly with Fedora: https://www.raymondjdouglas.com/blog/2019/airpods-on-arch/
5. Used yoshimi, didn't see it on the graph at first but it was being covered by another audio device, dragging them around revealed it and everything worked as intended.

makelix Lenovo ThinkPad W530 [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] 1. Internal audio, DisplayPort and Jabra.
2. I couldn't get sound to play over HDMI/DisplayPort, but that's probably just my fault.
3. A weird issue: the sound I play through Jabra Link 370 + Jabra Evolve 65 turns to mono output when pavucontrol is on. Other outputs are ok.
4. I'm on KDE Spin so I used Audacity for the recording.
5. No sound over HFP with Jabra Evolve 65 headset.

Works mostly, but "aplay -D sysdefault audiofile.wav" results in "...unable to open slave...". Playback volume can now be changed in alsamixer, but percentages do not match, e.g. 50% in alsamixer corr espond to 79% in pavucontrol.
norbertj Fedora-Xfce-Live-x86_64-34-20210407.n.0.iso as live image on Ideapad V110-15ISK with Core i3-6006U and 8 GiB RAM [1] [2] [3] 1. Same deviation between alsamixer and pavucontrol as with my desktop PCs. Additionally sometimes the master control in alsamixer gets stuck and then playback volume can't be changed with pavucontrol ei ther until reboot. Not observed with F33 and Pulseaudio.
2. Sometimes playback volume cannot be changed, possibly caused by prior invocation of alsamixer.
3. Doesn't work reliable with this laptop. When a headset is plugged into the combo jack, output is switched from internal speakers to headphones most times, but not always. When the headset is unplugged , output either changes back to internal speakers or remains assigned to the combo jack, in which case the displayed output device in pavucontrol changes from "Headphones (plugged in)" to "Headphones (unplugged)".

ritchierankin Late 2012 Mac mini Server, 2.6GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, macOS Mojave, VMware Fusion Pro 11.0.2 [1] [2] 1. No sound at all from headphones. Microphone indicator working in Settings>Sound>Input Device. Pavucontrol> Input Devices> Microphone indicator works. Settings>Sound>Output Device>Test doesn't work.
2. Microphone indicator meter works on front left but not on front right in Pavucontrol>Volume Control>Input Devices with Lock channels unlocked. Recorded a recording on Gnome Sound Recorder. It looked l ike it was recording by the sound wave indicator. There was noise on the playback, but the recording was not speech recognizable by my ears. My output is not working right, so it is impossible for me to know for sure if it recorded correctly. But it did record something by the indication of the sound wave indicator.

2. for test 2 had to specify default not sysdefault in command
3. running XFCE not Gnome - have not tested
4. mono source only tested
5. adding / removing devices work and they all show, however inconsistent on whether speakers or headphones have to be selected manually after plugging or unplugging. Sometimes switches automatically so metimes manually. Audacious also froze and on restart had switched to ALSA Output. Was able to change back to pulseaudio without issue. I don't think this is a Fedora upgrade bug have had similar problems using Xubuntu previously.
6. No bluetooth on this computer, not tested
7. tested with built-in audio and USB headphones all good
8. used M-Audio Oxygen 49 for kb test
