the default [-c 0], that you get with "alsamixer" is Card/Chip= HDA ATI SB / Realtek ALC1200.
this contains 2x IEC958 + 10 more... but no control for HDMI sound. ???
'aslamixer -c 1' ... Card/Chip= HDA ATI HDMI/ ATI ATI RS690/780 HDMI
this contains only IEC958 ... unmute ... BINGO!
bingo-bango a kick-*** HTPC in the living room.
i was about to crack and replace the mobo with nV
