Orange Pi Lite 2 - sound over HDMI

Recommended Posts

Is there way to configure sound over hdmi? Display is working ok (configuration for 1366x768 and 1920x1080 was made manually), but there is no sound.

Want Armbian t-shirt or a cup?

Unfortunately, No

Even for me, the official linux image still does not play sound, but the Android one does.

If you want this board to server you media, then go with android. But if you really want to do this on linux, then install something like soundwire and use another piece of hardware to play sound

Another option would be using a dedicated sound card, by sacrificing a USB port

If you take a look at Linux Mainlining Effort page, you will see that in fact nobody works, niether has worked on audio over hdmi for an allwinner SoC.

That's not true. HDMI audio works for example LibreELEC images for Allwinner boards (A64, H3 and H6) and there is an effort to mainline support for it. But that's only for newer SoCs, from A83T onwards (all with DW-HDMI core). I guess I should change status on that page.
