NUC8i7HVK digital audio out in linux

Though the system has a rear digital audio port, I can't seem to get it detected in Linux. The port seems to be working -- when I unplug the cable, I can see it emitting red light. But it doesn't show up as a hardware option. The analog port seems to be working fine.

I have tried using alsamixer and pavucontrol to make sure I'm not missing anything, with no luck. It seems like the HDA Intel module might not be detecting the hardware correctly?

Hello nathan-b


Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities. Please share with us the following information:

  • Did this connection work before?
  • Which devices did you try?
  • Did you try using Windows at any point before?
  • Are the BIOS and drivers up to date?

Hi @David_G_Intel , thanks for your reply!

  • This is my first time trying digital audio out with this system, so as far as I can tell it has never worked.
  • I only have one device I tried, which is a Sony audio receiver. This device worked with my previous NUC (a Skull Canyon model) using digital out, so I know that digital out works with this device in general. The cable any everything else is the same, only the NUC system is different.
  • I did not try with Windows. I don't have a Windows license or any computers with Windows installed.
  • I just updated the BIOS to the latest version from the Intel website. The kernel is up-to-date (5.14.15) and should have the latest snd_hda_intel driver.

After further investigation we confirmed that the OS you're using is not supported by the NUC. You will need to use one of the Supported Operating Systems for Intel® NUC Products
