Can you reproduce with powersaving for the audio card disabled. I know it was an issue with the audio card on the 11th board so maybe the 13th board as the same “problem/limitation” with the card it was on.
Whoa, @Danny_Colin the solution in this post on the original 11th gen audio issues worked! I was a bit surprised as it appeared to be Intel specific but maybe the audio breakout board is Intel based in some way?
echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/module/snd_hda_intel/parameters/power_save
I’ll apply the snd_hda_intel.power_save=0 kernel boot parameter to resolve on this OS installation.
Odd that it resurfaced though. I think I remember having this issue back when I originally got the 11th gen laptop but I definitely haven’t experienced it for quite a while until I installed the new AMD board. @Matt_Hartley is this something you’re already aware of and might we be able to get the fix available generally for the new board?
Well, if both boards are using the same or similar audio chipset, they’d have the same issue. AFAIK, this is an hardware limitation on the 11th gen so it can’t be fixed. I guess we’ll need to wait for Matt confirmation to know if that’s also the case on the AMD board.
The echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/module/snd_hda_intel/parameters/power_save trick worked for me. I notice popping sounds when audio is about to begin and shortly after it ends. It does this on and off power. I’ve heard this with more than just a single set of headphones, I do notice it more on headsets.
I finally got around to testing. Using a fresh copy of F39 updated to the lastest available today, using my headset without the dell-multi-headset work-around, I still get popping sounds when starting audio and a while after the audio has stopped. I stand by the fix I mentioned above for my specific problem.
