I finally fixed the issue like this:

I plugged a regular screen on the computer i will use with kvm, and checked the sound works properly.

This computer runs debian As root I used 'hw-probe -all" to extract the edid you can then find the edid here :


then I created the hex file using edid-decode $EDID | grep '^[0-9,a-f][0-9,a-f] ' > edid_new.hex

Transfer the file on the kvm, plug the screen cable on the kvm and tested it with: kvmd-edidconf --edid=edid_new.hex --apply

As it worked cat edid_new.hex > /etc/kvmd/tc358743-edid.hex And then rebooted the kvm

Hope this can be useful to someone else ;-)

finally I managed to have sound with X630-A3 V1.3 and X630 v1.3 with the extra cable, changing the client Operating Sytem.

I probably need to do something on Linux Client OS to emit sound, on the pikvm screen

Thank you

I reinstalled from scratch, followed carefully the instructions But with X630-A3 V1.3 and X630 v1.3 and the cable between still no sound

In the wiki it it said that the only change on X630 v1.5 is the DIP switch removal, but it's also something about 'Fixed HDMI back powering issue.'

should I upgrade to X630-A3 V1.6 or/and X630 v1.5 ?

I tried in the former install to tweak EDID, but which one would you recommend?

I'm sure my MotherBoard is able to emit sound on HDMI I red that both CSI and I2S sound is supported, but I can't find any doc about a config option, is it one ?
