I've marked this bug as affecting pulseaudio. In fact, it seems (to
me) sufficient to get version 2.0 of pulseaudio into Debian to solve
this bug.

With convenience and user-friendliness in mind, I feel that the jack
detection backport from kernel 3.3 to the Debian 3.2 kernel should be
done. Since Ubuntu already did it, perhaps this will be easy enough ?

Cheers

Andres

Could you file a new report against pulseaudio summarizing the problem
and your suggested fix and mentioning <http://bugs.debian.org/660111>
for background?

Then we (or the kernel team) can separately pursue a jack detection
backport and figure out what to do on the kernel side, if anything, to
support upgrades cleanly.

Thanks,
Jonathan

Thanks! I guess let's put backporting the kernel-side HDMI jack
detection patches on hold until pulseaudio 2 gets packaged, unless you
know of some easy alternative test for whether the jack detection is
working.

Shouldn't we consider reverting 384a48d71520 (ALSA: hda: HDMI: Support
codecs with fewer cvts than pins, 2011-06-01) in wheezy if userspace
hasn't caught up with the new order of things?

I haven't looked deeply into this or tried it, but it seems at least
worth thinking over.

Thanks again for your help and patience,
Jonathan

Mmm. I don't know if this is a good idea. That patch allowed support for
video cards with multiple (physically accessible) HDMI ports. Before,
the kernel would just choose one to be advertised and the others could
not be accessed.
