In order to get better multimedia support in Debian kernels, primarily for arm64 SBCs, I filed https://bugs.debian.org/987576 requesting CONFIG_SND_AUDIO_GRAPH_CARD to be enabled. The idea came from seeing an upstream commit titled "arm64: defconfig: Enable CONFIG_SND_AUDIO_GRAPH_CARD" and the secondary commit msg is "CONFIG_SND_AUDIO_GRAPH_CARD is needed to use HDMI sound with video" What was meant as a general improvement with only 'sideways' my Rock64 device in mind, turned into something specific for Rock64. https://salsa.debian.org/kernel-team/linux/-/merge_requests/351 is where the 'action' is taking place. In it, Salvatore Bonaccorso made a (very) reasonable request to ask for validation on real devices before enabling it in the Debian kernel(s). A crucial element looks to be to enable 2 settings in the device tree (https://salsa.debian.org/kernel-team/linux/-/merge_requests/351#note_238470) # fdtput -t s /boot/dtbs/rockchip/rk3328-rock64.dtb /hdmi-sound status okay # fdtput -t s /boot/dtbs/rockchip/rk3328-rock64.dtb /i2s@ff000000 status okay (Old value is "disabled") I can/will test to see what else is needed to get it to work on my Rock64. But those settings are actually in rk3328.dtsi. And there is a similar file rk3399.dtsi where it seems the same (simple) change is needed. And that would mean that HDMI audio would work on all (?) rk3328 and rk3399 devices. But for that to happen, I need someone with a RockPro64 device who is willing to join in and validate that the changes do indeed also work on a RockPro64. Who can and is willing to help? Cheers, Diederik
