(beowulf) toslink gets no sound - pulseaudio can't connect

Hello ,

i updated my box to Beowulf and noticed the following behaviour:


Upon booting there is an error notice with alsa something and HD (soundcard) and when i login, i don't have sound.

My soundcard is an internal one (Realtek HD) on the Mainboard


Alsamixer shows:

0 HDA ATI HDMI (Graphics Card HDMI)
1 HD-Audio Generic (Realtek ALC1220).


When i go into Pavucontrol the error comes

Establishing connection to Pulseaudio. Please wait....

and nothing happens.


The Speakers are connected thru a Toslink Cable to the Digital Output on the Mainboard.

Yesterday,
When i disconnected the cable and reconnected, the connection got established and the sound came.
+

Today, not even that helps.

Any thoughts on how to solve this?

the error message upon booting goes similar like this

warning: 'alsactl -E Home=/run/alsa/restore' failed with error message 'Found hardware: "HDA-Intel" "Realtek -Generic" ...
