Hello Everyone,

This is my first post. Long time user of Fedora (going back to Yarrow).

My System: Kernel: 4.8.15-300.fc25.x8664 x8664 (64 bit gcc: 6.2.1) Desktop: Cinnamon 3.2.7
dm: gdm Distro: Fedora release 25 (Twenty Five)

Here's my issue:

I have an audio converter. It takes HDMI as input, and outputs to Optical and HDMI. I have used it in the past (Fedora 23) to connect my audio receiver to my computer (for digital audio).

pavucontrol shows all the outputs as "unplugged" for this card (GTK107 HDMI Audio Controller).

As I say - this was working in 23... But I've forgotten how I got it working. I know I had to reconfigure alsa - and I'm pretty sure I had to configure X (even though I didn't run a display on it).

Any pointers?

Many Thanks!
