I have my LCD TV connected to my pc with HDMI cable. The problem is there is no sound from TV speakers.
OS: Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
nvidia card: GeForce 6200
nvidia driver version: 169.12 (latest)
sound card: SoundBlaster Live!
- alsa-base 1.0.10-4ubuntu4
- alsa-oss 1.0.10-1
- alsa-utils 1.0.10-1ubuntu14
Sound is working perfectly on the pc.
My question is, does latest ALSA drivers supports sound over HDMI cable?
Re: HDMI sound
HDMI audio is still in it's early days (yes, I want it as well!:lolflag: ).

Third - with HDMI audio there are two parts: the audio device and the routing. In my case the audio is a Realtek ALC883 and, as it's on the motherboard, the routing is part of that ATI SB600 south bridge.
Given all this, I managed to get it all working after setting the default sound output and unmuting it.
I bought a nice shiny AV receiver (Onkyo TX-SR606) and the audio stopped working. It seems ATI's HDMI audio implementation isn't very good because the audio device doesn't work under windows either.
All in all, early days and for the AV receiver I use HDMI video plus optical audio.
Hope this is of some help.
