Recent stable update broke HDMI audio on Steam Deck

As of May 14th’s big update, HDMI audio out no longer works on the Steam Deck. Unlike some of the other topics I’ve seen, there seems to be no indication that the device is detected at all. The only options are two separate instances of the internal speakers.

Hi @Clorf and welcome to the Manjaro community.

I do not have a solution to your issue. However, it’s best that you detail your problem and provide enough information so that others can help more effectively.

As a new user, please take some time to familiarise yourself with Forum requirements; in particular, the many ways to use the forum to your benefit. To that end, some or all these links will be invaluable:

And last, but not least, the Stable Update Announcements, which you should check frequently for important update related information. Occasionally an issue might be directly related to a particular update; it’s always best to check those announcements.

I hope this helps. Cheers.

Please post more information about audio devices detected in PulseAudio or PipeWire
