Speakers not working on HP omen DH0137tx

Even though the fact that your audio doesn’t work in Win is worrying (updated Bios?) I’ve found instructions to get audio working on Arch based distros for this exact model:

sudo pacman -S sof-firmware
sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

and add/paste this:

blacklist snd_soc_skl
blacklist snd_hda_intel

Edit: Needless to say; if this does not work reverse the changes.

Yes I recently updated BIOS, latest BIOS was released on 6 Aug and I’m not sure but I remember I noticed this audio issue after I updated BIOS in april, i’m not sure if that BIOS update spoiled it or not.

I will try your suggestions and let you know.

Didn’t work );

The modprobe option dmic_detect=0 did not work the last time you tried it in Aug 2020 because option had been deprecated and replaced

$ modinfo snd-hda-intel | grep dmic
parm:           dmic_detect:Allow DSP driver selection (bypass this driver) (0=off, 1=on) (default=1); deprecated, use snd-intel-dspcfg.dsp_driver option instead (bool)
$ modinfo snd-intel-dspcfg | grep dsp_driver
parm:           dsp_driver:Force the DSP driver for Intel DSP (0=auto, 1=legacy, 2=SST, 3=SOF) (int)

Changing the modprobe option was confirmed to work in a later post:

But snd_hda_intel driver does not support integrated dual array digital microphone

I tried changing it but it doesn’t work. I noticed one thing from old post.

before driver was snd-hd-intel

OLD info.

Audio:     Device-1: Intel Cannon Lake PCH cAVS vendor: Hewlett-Packard driver: snd_hda_intel 
           v: kernel bus ID: 00:1f.3 chip ID: 8086:a348 
           Device-2: NVIDIA TU106 High Definition Audio vendor: Hewlett-Packard 
           driver: snd_hda_intel v: kernel bus ID: 01:00.1 chip ID: 10de:10f9 
           Sound Server: ALSA v: k5.8.0-2-MANJARO 

but now it’s different.


Device-1: Intel Cannon Lake PCH cAVS vendor: Hewlett-Packard
    driver: sof-audio-pci-intel-cnl alternate: snd_hda_intel, snd_soc_skl,
    snd_sof_pci_intel_cnl bus-ID: 00:1f.3 chip-ID: 8086:a348 class-ID: 0401

inxi has been updated recently to show more information, including alternate drivers

Sound Open Firmware driver sof-audio-pci-intel-cnl would be preferred over snd_hda_intel because it supports integrated dual array digital microphone
