I set up my daughters laptop with MX 17.1 with the ability to have it connected to the television using HDMI. Setting up the display/screen settings is not a big issues, that's done. The laptop is most of the times connected to a tv set using a HDMI cable.
Here's the problem:
The first time when i connected the laptop to the tv i was able to set everything up correctly: sound and screen. But whenever the laptop is booted up or rebooted, the audio setting is set back to the default output: laptop speakers. After each (re)boot i need to set up sound output to HDMI manually in the volume settings tool. This is kinda annoying after a few days running MX. It is also strange that MX is setting it back to default on its own knowing i never experienced this issue with another distro (Linux Mint).
How can i set the audio output to HDMI and keep it fixed on HDMI output? Am i missing something here? Or looking over something which is there in the configuration screen?
Some basic info about the audio device:
Code: Select all
Device-1: Intel 5 Series/3400 Series High Definition Audio
