    I installed RetroPie 2.5.0 beta this afternoon on my RPi2 and I’m not getting sound output, neither through HDMI nor through the jack connection. Sound settings (set via sudo raspi-config) are on the default setting, auto:
    `
    numid=3,iface=MIXER,name=’PCM Playback Route’
    ; type=INTEGER,access=rw——,values=1,min=0,max=2,step=0
    : values=0
    `
    How to debug this?

    I have the same issue with RPi B+. 2.3 was working, but in 2.5 I get no sound at all.

    Does it work if you set it to force audio to HDMI in the retropie setup script?

    Nope, no sound on either HDMI or Jack, independently of the setting (0,1,2).

    Longshot, but have you tried a different TV or different HDMI cable?

    Thank you! That fixed it!
    I just edited the /boot/config.txt by using
    sudo nano config.txt

    What does ln do?

    Welcome to Raspberry Pi. 🙂

    hdmi_drive=2 forces the Pi to output sound over the HDMI interface even when video is in a “DVI” compatible mode which ordinarily would not accept sound.

    The problem was solved by upgrading to 2.6.0.

    Ok I have 2.6 up and running but have no sound from hdmi. I looked in /boot for the config.txt file and nothing shows. Am I missing something, is this a hidden file that I need to tell to show?

    hit f4 while in emulation station.
    type
    sudo nano /boot/config.txt
    uncoment or add
    hdmi_drive=2
    then push ctrl+x to exit then type Y to save
    then type
    sudo reboot

    Because of the vga-adaptor I have to force the soundoutput over hdmi. Thats working, ok.

    But is there a way to get the sound out of both? hdmi AND the jack?

    Or, even better, is there a possibility that the RasPi puts out the sound forced through HDMI, but when I plug in Headphones in the jack, that it switches from the hdmi to the jack automatically?
