Which OS are you running? Which audio device are you using; jack, hdmi, or usb audio?

I had no sound issue after installing TinkerOS 1.9
Sound was routed to incorrect device. Just start playback open pavucontrol and change devices at Output tab

I installed TinkerOS 1.9. No sound via Audio Jack and HDMI port.
when i try to change it by pavucontrol.....it says "connection to pulseaudio failed automatic retry in 5s".

some where on web, i dound pavucontrol needs pulseaudio for proper functioning. pulseaudio is not able to run as it also error out.

Any clue on this.

I am able to figure out why i m getting following errors when i run pavucontrol:

I am able to correct this problem by installing the at-spi2-core accessibility core, which is the parent of org.a11y.Bus:

sudo apt-get install at-spi2-core

But pavucontrol still says "connection to pulseaudio failed. Automatic retry in 5s".

I am able to resolve pavucontrol issue by doing all this:

**********************************
sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio
sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoremove
Reboot. Open a terminal again and type (ignore any errors with the rm command):

rm -r ~/.pulse ~/.asound* ~/.pulse-cookie ~/.config/pulse
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio
sudo alsa force-reload
pavucontrol

***********************************

After that my PulseAudio Volume Control is working. However i am not able to redirect sound to Audio Jack and HDMI port. there is no activity on OUtput devices tab in Pulse Audio Volume control.

Dear lalits21,

For the quick hotfix.
You can try with modify /etc/pulse/default.pa to fix this issue.

/etc/pulse/default.pa OLD Wrote:### Load audio drivers statically
### (it's probably better to not load these drivers manually, but instead
### use module-udev-detect -- see below -- for doing this automatically)
#load-module module-alsa-sink
load-module module-alsa-sink device=hw:0,0 sink_properties=device.description="BT_VOIP-Output"
load-module module-alsa-sink device=hw:0,1 sink_properties=device.description="SPDIF-Output"
load-module module-alsa-sink device=hw:0,2 sink_properties=device.description="Headset-Output"

load-module module-alsa-source device=hw:0,0 source_properties=device.description="BT_VOIP-Input"

Change To

We also would forward to our technical team to check why device number change on yours.
Please kind to wait our reply.
Thanks.

Have you tried this?

For those who are reading this with no sound in TInkerOS Debian v1.9.
It took me awhile to get it working. I am using HDMI to a TV and want HDMI audio output.
I learned you need to have a audio player running for the selection to change to the Rock Audio to appear in the GUI.
Sound using HDMI worked. It was set at install on the USB Audio.
I couldn't see it.  It was gone.  I ran smplayer and it appear in the first window of the pulse audio GUI the Play Back Tab.
This one can cause some stress. I had to change it from the USB to the Rock Audio. Don't know if it was me only or every one else has this behavior.

I use the smplayer while it is running an audio file.
Menu>sound and audio>Pulse Audio>Playback tab>Mpv Media Player>change to Rockchip hdmi or headset out for a line out plug

Using vlc
Menu>sound and audio>Pulse Audio>Playback tab>vlc>change to Rockchip hdmi or headset out for a line out plug. VLC audio isn't good. It brakes up.

Running Chromium with youtube running
Menu>sound and audio>Pulse Audio>Playback tab>chromium>change to Rockchip hdmi or headset out for a line out plug

Running firefox with youtube running
Menu>sound and audio>Pulse Audio>Playback tab>firefox>change to Rockchip hdmi or headset out for a line out plug


This only appears when an application is streaming audio. Then that streamer will appear in the Playback Tab.
I would asume that the Recording Tab will require an active recording stream for it to also appear. Then the audio device select can happen.
If you run an application that doesn't show in the playback tab, that is a worse problem like sonic pi.
I would think everyone should have this same issue with tinkerOS running on a Tinker Board. But, we don't have the same video monitors.


We all have the same Tinker Board.
We all bleed the same blood

Huh I have the same problem. No sound to the headphone jack from any media player or from the web browser. 

aplay -l says that the USB audio device is 0,2 for output and 0,1 for input. If I send audio to the port using aplay -D command it plays. If I use piHPSDR set to audio out on hw:0,2 it plays fine. But Pulse Audio does not send audio to the headphone jack.

On the volume control tab, the USB audio is set to Headphones. There are no other options. I have Roc chip turned off, but it makes no difference if it is set on. I can see the audio playing on the bar graph just above the word Advanced on the volume control, so Pulse Audio is seeing the audio stream but it is not sending it to hw:0,2 and there seems to be no way to make it do that. 

If I plug in a USB input device (FunCube Dongle receiver) then the USB audio changes from card hw:0,2 to card hw:1,2, but PiHPSDR program adjusts automatically and still works. I still get no audio from the headphone jack.

If I plug in a SoundBlaster USB sound card I can get audio out of the media players and web browser, but still not from the headphone jack.

HELP!! I have wasted hours on this!
