Dell monitor audio devices periodically turn off and on

I was more thinking your laptop - whatever brand you use.

Or it could be conflicts - or disagreement - if you have two soundservers running.

Ok laptop:

Regarding sound servers everything should be as it was during installation:

$ ps aux | grep 'pipe\|pulse'
xxx         964  0.0  0.2 211768 33404 ?        S<sl Apr08   0:19 /usr/bin/pipewire

Pipewire and pulse are the two options, correct?

The kernel is not at version 6.6.25. This is the most recent version.

:smile: Ok I updated but the problem is still there.

Can you post the manufacturer and model of laptop.
This can´t be seen in inxi -F.

It’s a Framework 13", about two years old. The mainboard is this: Framework | Mainboard (13th Gen Intel® Core™).

Can you post some useful information about your laptop ?

I’m not 100% sure how you define “useful” but here is all I have:

Next I could hop on a train to Augsburg. I’m down here at the Ammersee :sweat_smile: :innocent:

Welcome to Manjaro! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

  1. Please read the information behind this link. It will help you to post necessary information.
  1. Please press the three dots below your post and then press the :pencil2:
  • If you give us information about your system, we can see what we’re talking about and make better suggestions.
  • You can do this by using inxi in a terminal or in console.
sudo inxi --admin --verbosity=8 --filter --no-host --width --repos
  • Personally identifiable information such as serial numbers and MAC addresses are filtered out by this command
  • Presenting the information in this way allows everyone to be familiar with the format and quickly find the items they need without missing anything.
  1. Copy the output from inxi (including the command) and paste it into your post.
  • To make it more readable, add 3 backticks ``` on an extra line before and after the pasted text.

Have you already :mag: for your problem in the forum ? (Wisdom lies in asking → listening → reading :wink: )

Sorry I’m lost. I read exactly that and pasted the result of the inxi command above, between detail tags as requested further above. I’m somewhat tech savvy but I’m afraid I can’t find anymore information I can provide.

That said I appreciate everyone’s attention and time trying to help very much. Thanks for that!

please post the output of the 2 following commands

sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/gt/uc/guc_info
sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/gt/uc/huc_info

Hm I don’t have those, just /sys/kernel/debug/dri/1/gt0/uc/?uc_info, but:

GuC disabled
HuC disabled

I’m doing it wrong, am I not :-?

no, everything is fine. a question. is the hdmi-cable the original one that was included to the monitor? keep in mind that there are a lot of different hdmi-versions and a wrong hdmi-cable can cause the trouble.

Good point. It’s actually a usb-c cable. The monitor has two usb-a ports that I can use via this connection. Could that be a problem? I mean yes it probably could. It’s just weird that the sounds works flawlessly until I stop playing it when the back and forth (see screenshots above) starts.

there are a lot of possible issues. this could be one of them. another one that is worth to check and exclude from the list is your bios. it’s from 2021. is a newer one avaiable? check the manufacturer if a newer one exists.

UEFI: INSYDE v: 03.07 date: 12/14/2021

one thing you could check is the following. use an editor and edit the
/etc/default/grub
in the line

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="

add the following to the existing entries

intel_iommu=off

you need sudo rights for editing. kate is a good editor that will ask for sudo-password if you wanna store the file back.
after editing run

sudo mkinitcpio -P
sudo update-grub

reboot and check if there is a change in behaviour. keep in mind this is just a test. to undo the setting reverse it by deleting the added entry and run the

sudo mkinitcpio -P
sudo update-grub

again

Unfortunately no. I checked with fwupd. To be honest, I’m overall not too impressed by the laptop. The display was faulty on delivery and the wifi signal is terrible. I bought it because Cory Doctorow has it and said it’s cool :o)

Consider me impressed! With this the issue is actually gone :-o

Thank you for that tip too. I usually use nano for these sudo edits but as a matter of fact I just ditched sublime edit as my last proprietary software for kate when I switched to KDE a while ago. I really love it so far - just like the rest of Plasma. Lots of attention to detail.

So leaving iommu off is probably not a good option, hm? I think I should replace the laptop with a desktop machine. It constantly boots to the internal screen anyway and I have it stowed under my desk so that’s a pain every time.

well let’s try something else. you edit the grub file as before, replace the

intel_iommu=off

with

intel_iommu=on,igfx_off

run the

sudo mkinitcpio -P
sudo update-grub

and check this setting. if this setting works also then stay on this otherwise return to the

intel_iommu=off

always remember to run

sudo mkinitcpio -P
sudo update-grub

after editing the grub file.
please report

Happy to report that this also works! Also, the monitor now gained another higher resolution setting with 75Hz refresh rate :slight_smile:

Would it be ok for you to give me a small summary of what just happened and how you got the idea?

But anyway: thank you very much!

it’s always good to give a summary for others that might read this topic in future because they suffer the same or similar problem.
keep in mind that this problem seems to be related to the implementation of the linux-firmware and the intel-cpu. this might change in future. therefore it’s good to test if newer kernels and firmware will solve it in future. undo the changes after upgrades to newer kernels and test if it runs without problems otherwise use this method to override the problem.
